I'll start.

Standings
AL East winner: Blue Jays
AL Central winner: Tigers
AL West winner: Angels

AL Wild Card 1: Rangers
AL Wild Card 2: Rays

AL Sleeper: Indians - I like what they did this offseason, and although they look more like a .500ish team on paper, there's certainly large enough error bars to push them into wild card contention with rebound seasons from the pitching staff (Jimenez, Masterson, the reincarnation of Kazmir) and Trevor Bauer looming.

NL East winner: Nationals
NL Central winner: Reds
NL West winner: Diamondbacks

NL Wild Card 1: Braves
NL Wild Card 2: Cardinals

NL Sleeper: My sleeper would be the D-Backs, but I have them winning the NL West, so that feels sort of cheap. If I had to put something down, I'll say the Rockies are probably better than they are being credited for. I don't see them contending or anything, but I could see a near-.500 team, which would be a heck of an improvement over last season and compared to what some of the projection systems think of them (CAIRO: 72 wins, ZiPS: 70 wins).

Awards
AL MVP: Miguel Cabrera (yeah, boring pick and he probably won't win it again, but he's probably the safest bet to be in the race year in and year out)
AL Cy Young: Justin Verlander (see Cabrera)
AL Rookie of the Year: Wil Myers

NL MVP: Joey Votto
NL Cy Young: Stephen Strasburg
NL Rookie of the Year: Shelby Miller

Standings
AL East winner: Toronto Blue Jays
AL Central winner: Detroit Tigers
AL West winner: Oakland A's

AL Wild Card 1: Baltimore Orioles
AL Wild Card 2: LA Angels

AL Sleeper: Seattle Mariners. This is a weird pick here because I think that they'll be better than they have been recently and probably what most are expecting, but its with mostly older veterans added to the lineup and they still won't be legit playoff contenders, so I'm not even sure its a good thing. Anyway, I like them to finish 3rd in the West, maybe a bit over .500.

NL East winner: Atlanta Braves
NL Central winner: St. Louis Cardinals
NL West winner: LA Dodgers

NL Wild Card 1: Washington Nationals
NL Wild Card 2: Philadelphia Phillies

NL Sleeper: Padres. I know they looked awful yesterday, but they're playing without their 2 best hitters, and Kyle Blanks will be playing somewhere for them before long and he could be one of their better hitters too. They always seem to have good enough under the radar pitching. I'm guessing they finish ahead of the defending champs in the standings.

Awards
AL MVP: Mike Trout, because he's fun
AL Cy Young: David Price
AL Rookie of the Year: Jackie Bradley, Jr.

NL MVP: Justin Upton
NL Cy Young: Stephen Strasburg
NL Rookie of the Year: Jose Fernandez
