Well, the votes are all in, and, according to the MillersTime baseball prognosticators, here are the results of two of the six contests:
Contest #1. Favorite Team Record and how far they’ll go:
a. Sox – 89.5-72.5 – lose in ALCS
b. Nationals – 99-63 – win WS
c. Os – 92.5-69.5 – lose in ALCS
d. Dodgers – 92.5-69.5 – lose in WS
e. Yankees – 86-76 – no playoffs
f. Royals – 83-79 – no playoffs
Contest # 6: Who will play and who will win the WS:
Overwhelmingly Nats win WS over the Angels.
In my humble opinion, the Nats fans have bought the hype and don’t understand that while pitching is most important, you need some hitting and good defense. Nats may make the playoffs but will be a disappointment (and disappointed) again.
The other predictions above are pretty good, I think, tho the Sox fans may be disappointed too, as my heroes, if they do make it into the playoffs, are unlikely to get very far.
Hopefully, one of you readers will remind all of us of these predictions at the end of the season.
PS – Lots more predictions to come, including some ‘remarkable views’ of what might happen in MLB this year.
