Ultimate MLB Second Half Guide: Analysis and Predictions for Trade Deadline, Standings, Awards, and the Playoffs


New York Yankees vs. Atlanta Braves

Projected Pitching Matchups:

G1: J.A. Happ vs. Julio Teheran

G2: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Sean Newcomb

G3: Nathan Eovaldi vs. Luis Severino

G4: Mike Foltynewicz vs. C.C. Sabathia

G5: Julio Teheran vs. Michael Fulmer

G6: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Nathan Eovaldi

G7: Luis Severino vs. Sean Newcomb

Prediction: This is a dream matchup for an MLB World Series. The future arrives in terms of these two talented, young teams. Two high-powered offenses collide with the Braves and Yankees. It will be an incredible series to watch but I believe that the Yankees pitching rotation is deeper and they have a more reliable bullpen. I think those two factors will mark the advantage for the Bronx Bombers as they defeat the young Braves in five games. It will be a learning curve for Atlanta but one that they should not be ashamed of. The Yankees will win their first World Series since 2009 and Giancarlo Stanton will be named World Series MVP. The New York Yankees win the 2018 MLB World Series with a 4-1 series victory over the Atlanta Braves.

Postseason Awards:

WS MVP: Yankees DH Giancarlo Stanton

NLCS MVP: Braves 1B Freddie Freeman

ALCS MVP: Yankees SP Luis Severino
