Bold Prediction #7
Vlad Guerrero Jr. finishes the season with 30 HR
It may not have been as bold a prediction when Guerrero first got called up but he sits at 8 home runs right now and with just 71 games post All-Star break, he will need to club 22 more.
Only seven players in the MLB were able to hit 22 home runs through 71 games this year including fellow rookie Peter Alonso.
Vlad Guerrero Jr reminded the baseball world at the Home Run Derby how much power he possesses and with the baseballs flying out of stadiums in record numbers, who’s to say Vlad can’t find his approach again at the plate and hit 30 bombs?
Bold Prediction #8
Bo Bichette will have more home runs in his first half of MLB action than Vladdy had in his
It was a tough first half of the season. But in all honesty, the second half is going to be more fun. My bold prediction for the second half is that Bo Bichette will come up, and finish the second half with more home runs than Vlad Guerrero Jr got in the first half. This is a bold prediction, however I see Bichette more than ready for the big leagues, and has had more time to marinate in the minors than the others. Also playing into Bichette’s favour is the fact he likely has a chip on his shoulder, being the last one of the trio to be called up. There it is, Bichette will have more home runs in his first half of MLB action, than Vladdy had in his.
