Don’t tell the Chicago Cubs and the New York Mets that baseball is boring.

Thanks to Chicago’s absurd collection of bats and New York’s contingent of power arms, those two teams are set up to be two of the most exciting MLB squads in 2016.

In the process of drawing up the excitement rankings, we searched for three key attributes:

  • High-power offenses
  • Elite starting pitching
  • Shutdown bullpens

To measure all 30 teams against each other, we looked back at 2015 stats and also factored offseason free-agent and trade additions into the equation.

It’s important to remember that just because we predict these 10 teams to be the most exciting, they aren’t necessarily going to be the best. At the same time, it just so happens that the two teams at the top of the list were dangerous in 2015 and should be again in the upcoming campaign.
