Thursday is Opening Day of the 2018 Major League Baseball season. In anticipation, I took a look at “the best of everything” in the American and National Leagues, one piece for each league, naming the best lineup, rotation, bullpen, player, pitcher, manager, and much more, including best team (my de facto pennant picks) and the corresponding runners-up.
Get ’em while they’re hot, the season will likely change many of these rankings, and first pitch, from Jose Ureña of Marlins, is at 12:40 pm EST!
