It's About The 2015 Predictions

opening It's that time of year again!

Baseball is back so IIATMS thought it would be the perfect time for the staff to make their 2015 season predictions. We all named the division winners, the wild cards, and made one additional bold prediction. One thing that differs from other years is that I didn't ask the staff to predict the MVPs or Cy Young winners. We'll do that at a later date.

Please feel free to make your own predictions in the comments!
