I usually don't like predictions because I am really bad at them. These are just numbers, not backed up by statistics from last year because, frankly, I don't give last year much thought. Especially because I'm a Mets' fan.
So I made these extraordinary picks. Not too many surprises, that's why I still have three out my four final four picks still in there.
I'm all for nostalgia, so I have my two favorite teams to relive some brilliant baseball history, and after another drug-filled offseason, I think everyone would agree that we need some excitement this season.
So here goes; My predictions are well known to Vegas Gamblers. They see my predictions and bet the opposite.
