Asanoyama can aim for most wins of the year - he has 44 wins now and is 1 win behind the leaders Mitakeumi and Abi. So another year with below 60 wins for the winner of this award is practically guaranteed, but who will it be? And will he dig under the record of Hakuho, who holds both that for top and bottom there with 86 and 56 ?

The list of the top 8 plus the 2 with the best outside chance looks like we're in for a whole new sumo era in the new era. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&columns=5&n_basho=5&sum_wins=38&sum_range=5&show_sum=on&form1_year=2019&form1_m=on&form5_year=2019&sort_by=sum_wins

Seems good sumo game material as well.

I voted for Mitakeumi.

However, including wins from outside of Makuuchi, I think Shimanoumi has a chance to have more total wins if he gets KK.

Mitakeumi for 12+ and Ozeki by January. Of course I was on the bandwagon for his last Ozeki run and remember how that ended up :(.

Mitakeumi will get 12 next basho. It will also be the first time a specific prediction of mine comes true.

Mitakeumi needs an 11-4  to reach 56 wins for the year. Because of his talent, that's possible. Because of his inconsistency, it may not be. Asanoyama must have a 12-3 which will be extremely difficult to achieve. It will take slightly more than a 9-6 average record for a rikishi to attain more than 56 wins for the year. What seems strange is that because of injuries, none of the yokozunas or ozekis (with the exception of Goeido who is a distinct long shot) will be able to do it. 

If Mitakeumi does reach or surpass 56 wins, he will achieve it with records so far of 8-4-3, 7-8, 9-6, 9-6, and 12-3. The fact that the most successful rikishi of 2019 will have will only have around 56 wins for the year seems very weird.
