7 Late-Round Lottery Tickets with Huge Payouts

If you've ever purchased a scratcher ticket at your local convenience store, you know the odds of hitting on a cheap lottery ticket are pretty slim. But what if I told you the tickets were free and you still could keep the money if you won? Sound like a good deal? That’s kinda how I fell about these seven players.

Feast your eyes on the beautiful, the bold, and the basically belligerent predictions of 2018. Some of these are outrageous but all possible outcomes in my eyes for the upcoming baseball season. Previous Bold Predictions Eric Cross Ryan Cook's Bullpen Predictions Ronald Acuna has a combined 50 HR+SB – Only nine players had over 50 HR+SB in 2017.

Keith Farnsworth’s Draft Day Targets

Rays Continue to Revamp, Trade Corey Dickerson to Pirates

The Rays have traded Corey Dickerson to the Pirates for Daniel Hudson and Tristan Gray. The move comes after Dickerson was designated for assignment last weekend. The Pirates fill Andrew McCutchen’s outfield spot, while the Rays continue to add depth. The Pirates really improved their outfield by adding Dickerson, who hit .282 with 27 home runs in 150 games last season. He’s projected to put up similar numbers in 2018, with a possible hit to his batting average. The Rays' outfield has been in flux for a couple of weeks…
