As we do every year, the Yahoo Sports MLB crew has delivered its predictions for the upcoming season. We're not just picking division winners and a World Series champ, though. We're also looking at which players will win each major award, and tossing in a few fun topics for those of you who love watching Bartolo Colon at the plate. 

Our 2016 forecast is led by Yahoo's MLB experts Tim Brown and Jeff Passan, plus your Big League Stew bloggers, Chris Cwik, Israel FehrMike Oz and Mark Townsend. The regular season is long, and full of twists and surprises. We admit, none of us saw Chris Heston throwing the first no-hitter of 2015. Still, we're undaunted by our past failures. 

With that said, here are our 100 percent correct 2016 season predictions. We know that if we're wrong, you'll let us know about it.
