The MLB season is upon us, and that means fans of every team have a chance to be optimistic about their chances in the standings. To predict which teams will be at the top of their division or conference after analyzing key metrics for each team’s offense, defense and pitching staff. Here’s a list of the five best teams heading into 2022:

New York Yankees

The Yankees are expected to be contenders this season, and they have a new manager in Aaron Boone. They also added Giancarlo Stanton and J.A. Happ to their roster this season.

Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox have a lot of potential, but so far, they have not been able to translate it into success. Despite this, their farm system has been ranked in the top five for the last couple of years. And their manager is known as one of the best skippers in baseball.

San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants are a good team to watch in the MLB. They have won three World Series titles (2010, 2012 and 2014) since 2010 and went on a 22-game winning streak in 2017.

The team finished with 88 wins and 74 losses last year, good for second place in their division behind the first-place Dodgers (104 wins).

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers are a team to watch out for this season. They won the World Series in 2017 and have a great pitching staff. The Dodgers also have a lot of young talent, including first baseman Cody Bellinger and shortstop Corey Seager. Finally, they have a lot of money to spend on free agents—the Dodgers’ $270 million payroll is more than twice as much as any other team’s!

Houston Astros

The Houston Astros are the reigning World Series champions and are back to defend their title. With one of the most talented lineups in baseball, an impressive rotation and bullpen, and a good manager calling the shots, it’s hard to see them not being at least in contention for another run at the Fall Classic.

Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins are a Major League Baseball team that plays in the American League Central Division. They play their home games at Target Field, which is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The team’s colors are navy blue, red and white.
