Get your mind ready for the Oscars by watching MLB stars make their official predictions
It's the time of year for projections and predictions to be made. Who'll emerge victorious despite stiff competition, and who will be relegated to looking to the future?
We're talking, of course, about the Academy Awards.
With several months between the end of the World Series and reporting dates for Spring Training, there's plenty of time for players to whet their cinematic appetite and watch whichever movies they wish -- so, just what do they deem worthy of taking home an Oscar this weekend?
MLB.com asked a handful of players at camp, among them Rich Hill of the Dodgers, David Wright of the Mets, Marcus Stroman of the Blue Jays, Mets ace Noah Syndergaard, Adrian Beltre of the Rangers, Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins, the Cubs' Kris Bryant and more for their respective picks.
Watch the clip atop this post for their full takes. Spoiler alert: some definite love is handed out to Casey and Ben Affleck, Keanu Reeves and various family movies.
