Collette Calls: AL West Bold Predictions
Collette Calls: AL West Bold Predictions

This article is part of our Collette Calls series.

We have reached the end of the bold predictions series for 2018. You will have 30 hitters and 30 pitchers to look at for your drafts in the coming weeks, and my competition will know that same info. I take comfort in that I am potentially helping you get to the promised land while my leaguemates have fun at my expense. My first auction happens tomorrow, so I will be able to soon tweet about how much this hurt me while looking forward to hearing how cheaply you were able to land some of these.

I did engage the Twitter followers asking for AL West Bold Predictions as I sat down to put my own thoughts down and people had some rather interesting bold predictions:

Andrew Heaney is the best ERA+ of the Angels SP (@tradingipos)

Bartolo Colon finishes top 5 in the Cy Young (@JasonPKaiser)

James Paxton wins AL Cy Young award by a large margin (@benjamin11221)

Matt Chapman, Matt Olson, and Khris Davis all hit at least 40 homers (@YancyEaton)

Garrett Richards – 2018 AL Cy Young (@TheSpoken Keats)

Dee Gordon – 80 steals (@BigAsian85)

Willie Calhoun – best Ranger on the Player Rater; Sean Manaea top 35 starter, Edwin Diaz top 5 in saves, Richards 200 IP with sub 4 ERA, Jake Marisnick takes over for Marwin Gonzalez and Derek Fisher keeps the left field job all year (@CWeathermax)

Ian Kinsler finishes as a top 10 2B
