For a 10th consecutive season, I am back with my very own unfiltered and intuitive look at how I see all 30 MLB teams during the 162-game slog.

This year’s preliminary rankings are broken into two distinct segments. The first simply lists the teams from 1 to 30 along with their 2020 record and their over/under win total, courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook by William Hill.

Note: I will make comments on all 30 teams the first week of the season and again around the Fourth of July. Other than that, I will make weekly comments on the top 10 only.

The second portion of these preliminary MLB rower rankings features my predictions on how each five-team division will finish up from a standings perspective.

Here we go with the start of what we hope will be an entertaining and fruitful season:

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (43-17, 104.5)
2. San Diego Padres (37-23, 92)
3. Chicago White Sox (35-25, 90.5)
4. New York Yankees (33-27, 97)
5. St. Louis Cardinals (30-28, 88)
6. Tampa Bay Rays (40-20, 88.5)
7. Minnesota Twins (36-24, 89.5)
8. Atlanta Braves (35-25, 92)
9. Toronto Blue Jays (32-28, 86)
10. Cleveland Indians (35-25, 81)
11. Oakland Athletics (36-24, 88.5)
12. New York Mets (26-34, 89)
13. Philadelphia Phillies (28-32, 81.5)
14. Washington Nationals (26-34, 84.5)
15. Los Angeles Angels (26-34, 83)
