Major Baseball League: 3 of the Best Favorite Teams this 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 had the most extended offseason in baseball history and is even scheduled to be a short season. The MLB season is going by quickly with the postseason nearing fast. October is just around the corner, and a lot has already happened in the recent MLB matches that kept baseball fans on the edge of their seats.
Moreover, due to 2020 being a shorter season, it's understandable to anticipate that good teams will deliver a good play, unlike lower-tier teams. After 60 matches in 2019, the Dodgers, Twins, and Yankees were the teams that had the most wins, and they are also the top favorites in the 2020 season MLB Baseball Odds.
A year ago, the Minnesota Twins dominated 101 matches, which is the second-most wins in Washington/Minnesota history. Moreover, they set the unsurpassed record for team home runs, as well. Minnesota did not have the first-class starter it wanted. However, what they did instead was to strengthen the rotation with depth.
Toward the beginning of the winter, José Berríos, one of the more talented young pitchers in the match, was the Twins' sole clear starter. Then they brought back Jake Odorizzi and Michael Pineda after he got back from his suspension. They also imported Rich Hill, Kenta Maeda, and Homer Bailey.
They also have a great bullpen, headed by Trevor May, Taylor Rogers, and Tyler Duffey. Furthermore, the Twins are known to have acquired the eighth or ninth-best pitching staff in the match. If all of this is added to the third-best assortment of position players, it's clear that this is not a team aiming to hold out until October. It's planning to win it all, the team needs to improve their rotation and use their new monster pitcher , Gerrit Cole.
Two high-impact players, Giancarlo Stanton and Luis Severino, were injured for the whole duration of last season, and now they are ready to get back on the field. Regardless of whether a few of their best rivals also return to the field, the Yankees have enough strength to put their all in the current season.
Moreover, an upgraded rotation should help the team from burdening their relievers and keep players such as Aroldis Chapman, Adam Ottavino, and Zack Britton well-conditioned for October.
The Dodgers, Twins, and Yankees aren't the only teams that can win the 2020 World Series. Besides that, they're a top choice in winning within their divisions. They're also three of the five primary teams predicted to possess a 60% chance to make it to the end of the season games. But even with all of this in mind, it’s not guaranteed that the MLB 2020 champion would only come from these three teams. Every baseball fan knows that one of the sport's charms is its unpredictability. The only thing fans can do right now is stay updated with the latest baseball news.
