HOW WILL RED SOX DO?
Jared Carrabis: 91-71.
Evan Drellich: 90-72. And I’m being optimistic.
Lou Merloni: 93-69. Same record, but they won't be as good because last year's team should have won 97.
WHO WINS A.L. EAST?
Jared Carrabis: Red Sox. Divisions aren't won on paper, but they're the best team in the division on paper. Picking anyone else would be a lucky guess.
Evan Drellich: Red Sox. Only the Rays will be non-competitive.
Lou Merloni: Red Sox. Even without Price, they should still win this division.
WHO WINS A.L. CENTRAL?
Jared Carrabis: Indians. The team that went to Game 7 of the World Series last year is even better this year. They're the team to beat in the A.L.
Evan Drellich: Indians. They’re not going to be the juggernaut everyone thinks, but they are the best in that division.
Lou Merloni: Indians. Simply the best all-around team in the American League.
WHO WINS A.L. WEST?
Jared Carrabis: Astros. A good young team last year that needed a strong veteran presence, and that's exactly what they got in the offseason.
Evan Drellich: Astros. They’ll need a starting pitcher, though.
Lou Merloni: Rangers. Can Yu Darvish stay healthy? Too many questions with Astros pitching.
WHO WINS A.L. WILD CARD?
Jared Carrabis: Blue Jays and Rangers.
Evan Drellich: Mariners and Yankees.
Lou Merloni: Blue Jays and Tigers.
WHO WINS A.L. MVP?
Jared Carrabis: Mike Trout. He's the best player in baseball and should be the MVP every year until he proves otherwise.
Evan Drellich: Manny Machado. Still just 24 but in his sixth season. Plate discipline improves.
Lou Merloni: Manny Machado. He'll keep the Orioles in playoff picture into September.
WHO WINS A.L. CY YOUNG?
Jared Carrabis: Corey Kluber. One of the top pitchers in the American League, and he'll get even more shine now that he's on the best team in the league.
Evan Drellich: Justin Verlander. Every so often, you can believe in an older pitcher. It’s okay.
Lou Merloni: Aaron Sanchez. Could have won it last year if he didn't miss time.
WHO WINS A.L. ROOKIE OF THE YEAR?
Jared Carrabis: Andrew Benintendi. Same line as earlier -- any other pick would just be a lucky guess.
Evan Drellich: Andrew Benintendi. I really don’t think of him as a rookie, even though the rules do. Refined.
Lou Merloni: Andrew Benintendi. Hits in the top of the lineup in a very good offense.
WHO WINS N.L. EAST?
Jared Carrabis: Mets. That pitching staff is the best in baseball when they're all healthy, and Yoenis Cespedes seems set for a monster season.
Evan Drellich: Mets. Because if you can’t buy into that pitching staff, you’re not alive.
Lou Merloni: Nationals. Too deep. Bryce Harper may be overrated, but Trea Turner is not.
WHO WINS N.L. CENTRAL?
Jared Carrabis: Cubs. Best team in baseball once again.
Evan Drellich: Cubs. Brookline’s finest.
Lou Merloni: Cubs. Still the best, but their pitching takes a step back.
WHO WINS N.L. WEST?
Jared Carrabis: Dodgers. They've been the best team in the division for half-a-decade now and there's no reason to believe that's changing in 2017.
Evan Drellich: Dodgers. Andrew Friedman is going to get his. Eventually.
Lou Merloni: Giants. Bumgarner, Cueto, and Matt Moore finally lives up to hype.
WHO WINS N.L. WILD CARD?
Jared Carrabis: Nationals and Cardinals.
Evan Drellich: Giants and Nationals.
Lou Merloni: Mets and Dodgers.
WHO WINS N.L. MVP?
Jared Carrabis: Yoenis Cespedes.
Evan Drellich: Corey Seager. West Coast monster deserves love.
Lou Merloni: Nolan Arenado. He's going to hit 40-plus HRs AGAIN and drive in 130-plus runs AGAIN.
WHO WINS N.L. CY YOUNG AWARD?
Jared Carrabis: Stephen Strasburg.
Evan Drellich: Noah Syndergaard. Kershaw’s proven mortal, health-wise.
Lou Merloni: Noah Syndergaard. I don't know how anyone hits him.
WHO WINS N.L. ROOKIE OF THE YEAR?
Jared Carrabis: Dansby Swanson. Kid's a stud.
Evan Drellich: Manuel Margot. The Red Sox will start to feel the pain.
Lou Merloni: Dansby Swanson. Hey Arizona, how did that trade work out for ya?
A.L. First Round
Jared Carrabis: Indians over Blue Jays; Red Sox over Astros.
Evan Drellich: Red Sox over Indians; Astros over Mariners.
Lou Merloni: Indians over Tigers; Red Sox over Rangers.
N.L. First Round
Jared Carrabis: Cubs over Nationals; Mets over Dodgers.
Evan Drellich: Giants over Cubs; Mets over Dodgers.
Lou Merloni: Nationals over Mets; Giants over Cubs.
Jared Carrabis: Indians over Red Sox.
Evan Drellich: Astros over Red Sox.
Lou Merloni: Indians over Red Sox.
Jared Carrabis: Cubs over Mets.
Evan Drellich: Mets over Giants.
Lou Merloni: Nationals over Giants
Jared Carrabis: Indians over Cubs. In a rematch of last year's World Series, the Cubs see what the Indians should've looked like last year only with an upgrade in Encarnacion. Tribe wins the World Series.
Evan Drellich: Mets over Astros. Tremendous pitching vs. tremendous hitting, and we know how that old cliche works.
Lou Merloni: Indians over Nationals. Cleveland is the best team in baseball.
