At the start of the baseball season (link), I wrote a article with the opinions of all the top writers of B/R at the time


I know it a bit early, but we can tell about who got it right and who swung and missed.


Many of the people I asked to give me a opinion gave it, and I wrote at the end of that article that in the end of the season we will need to face the music.


Some of the writes picked great teams, and some missed the spot.


I missed the spot as I picked the Mets to win the World Series. As it is looking now, I was very wrong


Other writers like Shane Howard picked good teams like the Yankees; teams that are in the race and looking great.


The teams the are really still in the race and lead the division and Wild Card are the guys the will be happy to face the music.


The others are not going to like this article as much as the one's that got it right.


I think I have the right to write them down for two reasons.


  1. I am one of them


  2. I wrote in the article that in the end of the season they will need to face the music


Looking good:


David Marine-Yankees

Shane Howard-Yankees

J.C. Ayvazi- Dodgers (and this is before Manny was a Dodger)

Bob Warja- Red Sox

Ryan Callahan- Phillies

Daniel Cox- Red Sox

Micheal Robinson- Yankees

Rob Kildoo- Red Sox

Jersey- Yankees

Kevin McGuire- Phillies

Chris DiFrancesco- Phillies

Christian Karcole- Cardinals

Austin Drake- Yankees


Not looking to good:


Mike Kent- Mets

Jim Neveau- Rays

Brett Lissenden -Cubs

Travis Miller- Mets

Dan Wade- Mets

Collin Hager - The Roundtable- Brewers

Lawrence Barreca- Rays

Ben Brown- Indians

Sayre Bedinger- Cubs

Andrew- Indians


I have great respect for all the writers on both lists, and I do not mind showing that I got it totally wrong.


The Mets are not just out of the race, they are under .500!


I hope I did not offend anyone on anyone of the lists. If I offended anyone, please let me know so I can fix it.
