BYB Roundtable: Predictions for Detroit Tigers, 2024 MLB season

Bless You Boys

Another spring, another opening day coming up for the boys of summer. For those who have been waiting for the return of America’s pastime, the big day is nearly nigh.

The Detroit Tigers will begin their 2024 odyssey through the Major League Baseball ranks on Thursday, March 28, in Chicago against the White Sox in a three-game set. While the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres already started with a pair played overseas in Korea last week, the remainder of the teams will be getting things going on the same day as all 30 franchises will be in action.

With the league beginning with a perfectly clean slate — with the exception of two teams this year — it is time to give our earnest predictions for the upcoming season for both the beloved Detroit Tigers as well as the major leagues as a whole. Bless You Boys’ staff assembled to submit their projections for the summer with a general consensus emerging both at the team and league level.

The prediction categories are as follows:

1) Tigers record

2) Tigers MVP and Cy Young

3) Division winners

4) World Series matchup and champs

5) League MVP, ROY, Cy Young

As a bonus, some of us also submitted our Tigers ROY winner as well as wild card picks.
