By: Kyle MacLelland - Producer, 'Larry King Now'
With pitchers and catchers reporting to MLB spring training this week, the 'Larry King Now' staff decided to ask our resident baseball expert to share his predictions for the 2016 season. It just so happens that said baseball expert is also our boss and host with the most, Mr. Larry King.
Larry, of course, is a season ticket holder for his beloved LA Dodgers ( you've probably seen him sitting behind home plate during the playoffs ) and has been attending games since his childhood. Throughout his longstanding career, Larry has interviewed and befriended a plethora of MLB players ( no joke -- he interviewed Jackie Robinson), coaches, owners, broadcasters, umpires, ball boys, ushers, Cracker Jacks salesman, and — well, you get the picture. The man lives for baseball.
With that said, here are Larry's five big predictions for this season....
1) "The Cubs could win 100 games."
2) "The LA Dodgers will do two major trade deals before the season is over."
3) "Arizona will be the league's most improved team."
4) "The Cardinals will have a lot of problems throughout the season."
And last, but certainly not least...
5) "The Yankees will have the best bullpen in all of baseball."
There you have it, folks! The King has spoken. Thoughts, questions, concerns? Leave em' below!
