The great thing about the baseball season is we know we're in for seven months of surprises. The tough thing about making "bold" predictions is if we actually knew what was going to happen, it wouldn't be a surprise.
Baseball is unpredictable enough that the boldest predictions can sound completely outrageous—and then they can come true. We're not guaranteeing all of these will happen, but we do guarantee that any of them could happen.
Joe Maddon's Chicago Cubs could even win the World Series, a prediction that doesn't sound that bold until you remember it hasn't happened in more than a century.
Maddon broke out one of his favorite Tampa Bay Rays lines this spring, when he said of the Cubs' dress code, "If you think you look hot, you wear it."
Here at Bleacher Report, we may not look hot, but we feel hot enough to make these bold MLB predictions for 2016.
