As the 2019 MLB season approaches the end, we thought this would be a good time to look ahead and speculate what a potential starting nine would look like in the 2020s.
In 1999, there was Y2K. The end of the world would soon be upon us, the prognosticators said, with the internet crashing among other apocalyptic scenarios. The 2000s came and went with no such drama, as has the 2010s.
However, despite any struggles that the world has endured over the past ten years, we can all agree on one thing: this decade went by very quickly, as there are just four full months left until we experience the roaring twenties again. With every new decade, too, comes a new crop of talent in the sports world with seemingly endless potential ready to be fulfilled.
This past decade we saw those like Mike Trout ascend to greatness while others failed to accomplish what appeared to be their similar fate.
So, how can one predict those that could dominate the next decade? It’s not easy, but at FanSided we are going to try.
