A Look Back at Pre-Season Predictions


Below is the link to my pre-season predictions on how the 2008 season would turn out. Looks like that pick of the Mariners was pretty terrible, and I totally screwed up on the AL Central but I DID pick the Rays to finish above .500 although clearly did not expect them to finish in first. C’est la vie…I also picked a Red Sox/DBacks series so, take my new predictions tomorrow with a ton of salt. I may have gotten most of my picks wrong, at least I NAILED the Nats finishing last! Let’s take a trip down to the halcyon days of late March when every team but the Pirates and Royals has a chance.

UGH! In parentheses is the actual finishing position of each team.

Al East

Red Sox (2)
Yankees (3)
Anti-Christ Rays (1)
Blue Jays (4)
Orioles (5)

AL Central

Detroit (5)
Cleveland (3)
Minnesota (1)
Chicago (1)
KC (4)

AL West

Seattle (4)
Anaheim (1)
Texas (2)
Oakland (3)

NL East
Mets (2)
Braves (4)
Phillies (1)
Marlins (3)
Nats (5)

NL Central
Chicago (1)
Cinncinati (5)

Milwaukee (2)
St louis (4)
Houston (3)
Pittsburgh (6)

NL West
Arizona (2)
LA (1)
Colorado (3)
Padres (5)
Giants (4)

WC: Cleveland (Red Sox)
WC: LA (Brewers)

    Well, the red sox over the dbacks isn’t so much TBD as it is not going to happen. But I get what you’re saying Red Sox over NL in 6…
