Well we’ve hit the official mid-season point (I know it’s actually a few games past) in Major League Baseball and now I think it’s time to look at our predictions, as I thought things would be a little different today then they were a few days.
Some things haven’t changed since Smitty covered this, like we have no grasp on the National League, but even though my AL East leader, the Rays are out of first they are still the wildcard leader which makes me a perfect four for four with AL playoff teams.
Meanwhile, we knew the Braves were going to be good, but who new Dusty would be leading the NL Central with the Big Red Machine. As for the NL West, well, that’s still up for grabs even though San Diego is leading my prediction, the San Francisco Giants by four games. The Giants are only two out of the Wildcard.
I still think that Smitty and I will fair a little better in the NL when the season ends, but here it is!
