MLB Award: Staff Predictions For MVP, Rookie Of The Year

The 2022 season is underway. Our staff has picked the MLB Award winners for the American League and National League.

According to several reports, the teams most interested in Watson are the Saints, Panthers, & Seahawks. But what will it take to get him from Houston?

In one of the most fun exercises of the year, predicting award winners at the beginning of the season ranks up there. Every organization, player, and coach has a blank slate right now. They all control their own destinies making this one of the most exciting times of the year. Both American League and National League teams are ready to get going. Analysts are predicting the MLB Award winners. It is officially the start of the 2022 season.

Over the off season, we saw many changes. Free agents switching teams, trades being made, surprise signings, and rule changes. Offenses changed. Lineups changed. An MLB Award was added. The makeups of clubhouses changed as all of these facets came together through the many months in the off season. With that comes new predictions for players changing teams and even those staying with their teams. Also, new comers add another bout of excitement to the season. Names like Bobby Witt Jr., and Wander Franco will continue to impress and be mentioned quite a bit. Will they be worthy of an award?
