The results for MLB on FOX’s fan polls on which team will win each division in 2022 are coming in.
Late on Wednesday afternoon, the results came in for the American League West division poll, and fans have made quite a bold prediction about a certain team.
The fans have spoken and according to them, the Seattle Mariners, who took quite a big jump in 2021 and just barely missed the postseason, will be the ones to walk away with the AL West division title in 2022.
The Houston Astros have won the division four out of the last five years, but fans see Seattle as the favorites.
The results are in!

Can Seattle Do It?
This is interesting to see, but not exactly surprising.
Seattle was busy during the offseason, signing Sergio Romo and Robbie Ray to bolster the pitching staff and trading for Adam Frazier, as well as picking up Eugenio Suarez and Jesse Winker from the Cincinnati Reds.
Will we finally see some new blood in the AL West?
It’s been the Astros and the Oakland A’s who have battled it out in the AL West for the past few seasons, but with Oakland entering a rebuilding phase and the Astros losing Carlos Correa, the door may be opened for the Mariners.
This team is loaded and looks dangerous as we inch closer to the start of the 2022 season.
The only team that was as busy as Seattle was the Toronto Blue Jays.
Maybe we’ll finally see some other teams rise in the American League and challenge the Astros and the Tampa Bay Rays for the AL pennant.
But look out, baseball fans.
The Mariners are ready to do some damage in 2022 and end their playoff drought.
