Preseason Predictions

-10 out of 26 had Cardinals in the playoffs.
-5 out of 26 had Cardinals winning the divison.
-3 out of 26 had the Red Sox in the playoffs.
-0 out of 26 had them winning the division.
-0 out of 52 on World Series teams.


(Glanville and Tony Lee made WS predictions but were not a part of the preseason picks.)

Looks like every single one of the ESPN Experts predicted a 6- or 7-game series. So I'm gonna go ahead and say Cardinals (or Red Sox) in 4.

[Oh, wait. Michael Knisley has Cardinals in 5.]

Was there a BBTF preseason prediction thread? I can't seem to find one.

Is that a prediction?

I guess this is it? Looks like no one here got it even remotely right, either.

Man, the Nats and Jays really disappointed this year. Ouch.

At the last minute, I chickened out on the Pirates nabbing one of the wildcard spots.

I fully expect the Nationals to fail to even make the postseason at this point, given the way they're the odds-on favorite to not just go to the World Series, but to win it.


Give that man a cigar.

Man, the Nats and Jays really disappointed this year. Ouch.

Yet somehow Angels fans are infinitely more unhappy with their team.

I picked Pujols to win the MVP. Bounce back year, baby. Like a brick off cement. Geeze. Anyone want any hot investment tips?

I had Angels over Nationals in 7.
