Hey, We're 40 Games into the 2018 MLB Season

Sunday, May 13, 2018

Each year, at the 40/60/80 game mark I redo the end of season team predictions and select All Stars.

Last year (and I think it's the same this year) there are 32 roster spots for each team.  20 position players, 12 pitchers, at least 3 of those are relievers (in practice, you'll note many more relievers than that are chosen, but not by me). I wait until the 60 game mark to make sure each team is represented, this is just who is having the best seasons a quarter of the way through, full stop.
