With Opening Day just around the corner, media and fans across the country have been busy making their predictions for the 2012 baseball season. In the latest MLB Fan Cave video (watch it below), some of baseball's biggest stars have made their own prognostications.

Among the players in the video is Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino, who proclaims that he’ll lead the league in triples. Charlie Manuel backs up the Flyin' Hawaiian with an affirmation of "Yeah, you will.”

It wouldn’t be the first time that the Flyin' Hawaiian records the most triples in a season. Last year he tied former Met and current Marlin Jose Reyes for the National League and major league lead with a career-high 16. In 2009, Victorino also led the NL and MLB with 13 triples.

Since 2007, Victorino has increased his number of triples in all but one season, and he has hit 10 or more in each of the past three seasons.
