Comparing Postseason Picks to Reality

I am not the least bit interested in this year’s World Series. I have never liked the Mets. Kansas City would be a nice story if they win, but it doesn’t matter to me.

How are my playoff predictions going so far?

Well…..

I had the Dodgers beating the Mets which they should have done. Greinke and Kershaw both lost a game! Basically, the Dodgers gave the series to the Mets.

I had the Dodgers over the Cubs for the NL pennant. Well, at least I didn’t have the Cubs in the World Series.

Can the Reds go from Worst to First in 2016?

Can the Reds be the Astros, the Royals, the Cubs or the Blue Jays in the next two years?

This seems to be the year of revenge for teams that have been bad for the past several years. The Cubs made the playoffs in 2008 and the Astros were in the playoffs in 2005, but until last year it had been 29 years for the Royals, and until this year, 22 years for the Blue Jays.

I left off the Rangers who went from worst to first in 2015 because they have been good for several years and last year was unusual for them.

The Cubs were in last place in their division last season. The Astros lost 92 games in 2014 and were in last place with 111 losses in 2013! The Bluejays were last place in 2013 and the Royals lost 95 games in 2010, 91 games in 2011 and 90 games in 2012.

MLB WEEK 26 – FINAL THOUGHTS


by: Dan Howard
Staff Writer

The pathetic, deplorable, miserable, anemic, embarrassing, useless, worthless, sorry, confusing, shameful, upsetting, mortifying, bewildering, firetruckin’ Reds 2015 season has finally drawn to a merciful close.

Just think, I waited a week to calm down before writing this post.

Where do I start? How about if I define the adjectives above with how they apply to this past season.

Pathetic – Bryan Price’s stellar record as manager of Cincinnati, 140 wins 184 losses (average 70 – 92), and just think, we get another season of him!

Deplorable – How’s that 106 million dollar contract to Homer Bailey looking now?
