Oh, this is going to be another fun year Kyle.

My picks:
1) Bregman, Votto
2) Tough to take Trout over the field, but we'll go against the consensus and say Yes
3) Dogs (duh)
4) 8 (I want to say 9, but that might be too optomistic)
5) Fantastic question. I'll say the Landlubbers start 6-0
Rod
Scurvy Dogs

Since we're still missing 3 MP's, we're extending the deadline until Rod finally gets those and then runs the first two games.  So let's see if we can get 100% participation!  Check the League Office Press Clippings Forum, and if Rod's Highlight of the Night isn't up yet, that means he likely hasn't run the games, and your answers would still qualify.

We have one answer already: There are no undefeated teams after 5 games played.  Hogs started out 4-0.  Congrats to the Kraken, Landlubbers, and Robots for guessing 4-0 (1 point each), but nobody guessed the Hogs.

Man, I thought my guess of 7 wins was taking into account how awful my team starts every year (including playoffs) but I guess not. Degrom and Kluber with losing records. I didn't even get as many wins as people were guessing I would have in a row. New year, same team.

You are gonna be just fine, Craig.  Long season, and you've got the goods.

Congrats to Franny (Brent) - the early leader with 4 points! 

Interesting note: The Blues' Alex Bregman was the only correct answer for question 1.  Here are the results:
Bregman: 8 W, 4 K
Santana: 5 W, 11 K
Votto: 7 W, 9 K
Ramirez: 2 W, 14 K

It'll be interesting to see if the numbers even out for each player over time.
