If you made any preseason standings/playoffs predictions, how are they turning out, so far? Using Baseball Prospectus' postseason odds report
, I checked mine. (I'm certain I posted them on the Cafe, if you want to search for them. Or you can find them at another board, here
. I'm the thread-starter on that post.)
Looks like I completely bombed in the AL. Anybody else not see any of this coming? I picked the Sox, Indians, and A's to win their divisions, and the Yanks as the WC. The chance of this happening, minus the wild card distinction (so, the chance of all these teams even reaching the playoffs together) is .019%. The chance of the division winners panning out is .018%. Ouch.
On the bright side, my NL division champ picks (Braves, Cards, Padres) are all looking good, and BP has an 11.043% chance of them winning their divisions together; and a 21.056% chance of them reaching the playoffs together (I picked the Cubbies as my WC pick - ouch).
How's the year looking compared to you expectations?[/url]
