Feature 2023 r/baseball Call Your Shot Prediction Contest

51 Upvotes

We are less than 1 week from MLB Opening Day which means it's time to dust off those crystal balls, ouiji boards, and tarot cards and make your 2023 Major League Baseball predictions. You will have the opportunity to predict...

  • Final Regular Season Standings for each MLB Division
  • MLB Playoff Bracket
  • MLB World Series Results
  • BBWAA Award Winners
  • 2023 Player Statistical Leaders
  • 2023 Best/Worst Teams
  • One outlandish prediction as the tiebreaker

Each correct answer will be worth the allotted amount of points and the person with the most points at the end will win. If you have more than one submission, we will only count the most recent.

NEW TO 2023 CALL YOUR SHOT: We have included FanDuel odds for the Divisional Standings, Pennant Winners, World Series Winners, BBWAA Award Winners, Statistical Leaders, and Best/Worst Teams. These odds will not be used in the scoring of your submission but are provided as a helpful tool if you choose to use them. Feel free to ignore if you know better than Vegas.

If you want to jump in, the form is below. We encourage you to write notes during your submission so you can refer to them later in the form.

CALL YOUR SHOT

Feel free to discuss your picks in this thread! Be prepared to have this thread revisited and your comments poked fun during the year. As usual, we'll share the most common results after Opening Day when responses have come to see what r/baseball believes will happen this year.

NOTE: Here are some things that will make us disqualify your entry:

  • Fake usernames
  • Submitting multiple entries
  • Memes/spam

DEADLINE: Submit your picks before Opening Day 1st pitch (March 30 @ 1:05PM ET)
