It’s the Christmas Day of baseball. Opening day is upon us and that should bring a smile to every baseball fan’s face.

In honor of Opening Day, Motor City Bengals wanted to take a look at what other “experts” across the web have to say about the 2015 season.

To keep it simple, we used the most famous journalist from each source, but readers can find more predictions from each site by clicking on the links. As one can see, the “experts” are divided on the Detroit Tigers and the rest of the wide open American League, but the picks from the National League were a bit more consistent.

Also don’t forget to check out the 2015 season predictions from the entire Motor City Bengals staff.
