Making predictions is a tricky thing.

Obviously none of us can see into the future, myself included. Strangely, I do imagine that I can sometimes, and I like to fantasize about what exactly I would do if I were so able.

This may in fact be the biggest waste of time in the history of wastes of time, but I digress.

What makes predictions so tricky, especially from a sports writing standpoint, is that we begin to root for our predictions in order to bolster our own credibility.

So last year when I wrote that I thought that Tim Tebow would be the Broncos third-string quarterback by Week 6, I was really rooting against Tebow.

This really is counterproductive as Tebow is a very likeable guy and does nothing but good in his personal life. But nonetheless, there I was rooting against the man for no other reason than I wanted my prediction to come true.

So did I learn my lesson from this?

Heck no!

Here are my five bold predictions for the Detroit Tigers this season.
