How Did I Do

Back in August I post My Highly Inaccurate Baseball Predictions, which turned out not to be that inaccurate after all.

I correctly picked all 4 American League playoff teams:

I even correctly picked the Yankees to fade down the stretch, which they did, going 3-7 in their last 10 games. They went from having the best record in the AL to nearly letting the Red Sox catch them for the Wild Card before settling for the Wild Card themselves.

I only got 1 wrong in the National League and I'm happy to have gotten that one wrong. I picked the Padres over the Giants. So the 4 NL teams are:

When I made my predictions, the Phillies weren't even in first place in the Wild Card standings. At the end of the season, they not only won the AL East, but the have the best record in baseball. I'm quite proud of that pick.

In a few weeks we'll see how my World Series picks went, but in the meantime, here're my picks for the Division Series:

Giants/Braves: Any 5 game series is a coin-flip, but I'll take the Giants in 4.
Phillies/Reds: This one's a coin-flip only if it's a two-headed coin. The Phillies in 3.

Rays/Rangers: In August I picked the Rangers to make the World Series, and I'm going to stick with that. The Rangers in 5.
Twins/Yankees: As I hate the Yankees, I've got to go with the Twins in 5.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
