The 2023 MLB postseason is on the horizon, and it promises to bring excitement and unpredictability. Let’s dive into some bold predictions for this year’s playoff action.

  1. The Twins’ Redemption: The Minnesota Twins, notorious for their 18-game postseason losing streak, will finally break free from this curse. I predict they’ll do it in Game 1 of the Wild Card Series against the Blue Jays, putting an end to their postseason misery. With a strong roster and improved postseason readiness, the Twins won’t be an easy opponent.
  2. Acuña’s Stolen Base Extravaganza: Ronald Acuña Jr., who had a phenomenal power-speed season, will continue his stolen base brilliance in the playoffs. He’ll set a new record for stolen bases in a single postseason series, surpassing Rickey Henderson’s mark of eight. Acuña’s speed and aggressive baserunning will be a game-changer for the Braves.
  3. Kerkering’s Playoff Breakout: Phillies’ young pitcher Orion Kerkering will follow in the footsteps of Francisco Rodríguez’s iconic postseason debut. With a devastating slider and electric stuff, Kerkering will become a household name in the playoffs, providing crucial late-inning relief. His presence will be a game-changer for Philadelphia.
  4. Astros’ ALCS Streak Ends: The Houston Astros, known for their impressive six-year streak of ALCS appearances, will face an early exit this year. Specifically, they’ll be eliminated by the Twins in the ALDS. The Twins will advance to the ALCS for the first time since 2002, marking the end of the Astros’ remarkable run.
  5. The Starting Pitcher’s Finale: In a deliberately vague prediction, a starting pitcher will deliver the final pitch of the 2023 MLB season during the World Series. Whether it’s a complete game, a late-game relief appearance, or a dramatic walk-off, the ultimate moment of the season will belong to a starting pitcher. This prediction echoes recent World Series history, where starters took center stage in clutch moments.

Get ready for an unforgettable 2023 MLB postseason filled with record-breaking feats, redemption stories, and unexpected heroes as chaos and excitement unfold on the diamond.
