The Tuesday Discussion: Fun Predictions

September 20, 2022

***

We decided to have some fun this week with some quick and simple predictions. We sent the following to our writers:


We're at the point where the pressure of what's to come will make the final weeks interesting.

Let's make some simple predictions:

  • How many home runs will Aaron Judge end the season with?

  • How many wins will the Yankees end with?

  • Who will be the American League Wild Card teams?

And two from the rest of the MLB...

  • Will Albert Pujols reach 700 homers?

  • Will Paul Goldschmidt win the Triple Crown?

  • Who will the NL Wild Card teams be?

***

Paul Semendinger:

  • Judge ends the year with 64 homers.

  • The Yankees will have 95 wins

  • The A.L. Wild Card teams will be the Rays, the Jays, and the Mariners

  • Pujols will end with 702 homers

  • Paul Goldschmidt will not win the Triple Crown.

  • The N.L. Wild Cards will be the Braves, the Phillies, and the Padres.

Lincoln Mitchell:

  • How many home runs will Aaron Judge end the season with?-63

  • How many wins will the Yankees end with?-97

  • Who will be the American League Wild Card teams? Blue Jays, Rays, Mariners

  • Will Albert Pujols reach 700 homers? I wish I could say yes, but I have a feeling he will come up a little short.

  • Will Paul Goldschmidt win the Triple Crown? No, and it won’t be very close.

  • Who will the NL Wild Card teams be? Braves, Padres, Phillies

Cary Greene:

  • Who will be the American League Wild Card teams? - Rays and Blue Jays

  • Will Albert Pujols reach 700 homers? - No

  • Will Paul Goldschmidt win the Triple Crown? - No

Ed Botti:

  • How many home runs will Aaron Judge end the season with? Based his average HR per game (.4041) and estimating he will play in 12 of the final 16 games, I project 64 Home Runs.

  • How many wins will the Yankees end with? I project an 8-8 record over the final 16 games, bringing the season total to 96 Wins.

  • Who will be the American League Wild Card teams? Seattle, Toronto and Tampa Bay ( I would like to say Baltimore, but their first half was too much to overcome. But, they are a team on the rise in 2023).

  • Will Albert Pujols reach 700 homers? Pujols has 698 Home Runs and the Cardinals have 13 games remaining, I believe he will hit 700.

  • Will Paul Goldschmidt win the Triple Crown? He has a shot at batting average and RBI, but I do not think he will overcome Kyle Schwarber for the most home runs. He trails by 4.

  • Who will the NL Wild Card teams be? I believe Atlanta will catch the Mets and win the NL East and Milwaukee will catch the Phillies for a wild card. My NL Wild cards are Mets, San Diego and Milwaukee.

  • I predict Aaron Judge will hit 67 home runs. My preseason prediction was 54. People accuse me of drinking Kool-Aid. It was rather tasty.

  • I will stick with my original prediction that the Yankees will win 98 games.

  • The AL wildcard teams will be Toronto, Tampa Bay, and Seattle.

  • Albert Pujols will hit 700 home runs.

  • Paul Goldschmidt will not win the triple crown.

  • The NL wildcard teams will be the Mets, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee.
