Back in February, goon Julio Cruz made a thread for us to predict the baseball season. Let's take a look!
He played in 28 games.
If Byron Buxton plays at least 140 games he will have a higher WAR than Mike Trout
Correa missed more than 20 games, so that's null. The Astros bullpen allowed 3.3 runs per game, the best in the AL.
If Carlos Correa misses fewer than 20 games due to injury he will win AL MVP
4/6 for division champs, but I deserve extra credit for predicting the Braves would win the NL East when nobody else believed in them. Got one WC team right, and switched Yanks/Bo-Sox.

Division champs are Astros, Indians, Yankees, Dodgers, Cardinals, and in the UPSET SPECIAL, Braves. Wild Cards are Angels, Red Sox, Cubs, and Giants.
Crosspost prediction: Kyle Tucker will be the every day Astros left fielder from the very first game the team can push his service time clock back a year
While this is correct, it wasn't as bold as...

I predict that Troy Tulowitzki will play fewer than 15 games before the All Star Break. There's no toxx attached, I just think he won't and want to smugly quote this during the ASB and go "see, look how good I am at guessing a thing."

-Snydergaard's ERA before June was 3.06. Close, but no cigar.
Waffles Inc. posted:
Syndergaard will have a sub 3 ERA all the way into June, when he'll get hurt and be out for the rest of the season and we'll go on to lose in the wildcard 3-1
-Snydergaard DID get hurt in June, but it was only a minor injury.
-The Mets did not make the playoffs.
AL East: Like me, predicted the Yankees and Red Sox to both make the post season, but in the wrong order. Misjudged Rays.

Massive effort post
AL Central: Other than the Tigers being in last, close to reality.
AL West: Also akin to me, incorrectly picked the Angles for the Wild Card. SERIOUSLY misjudged Athletics.
NL East: SERIOUSLY misjudged Braves. Apart from that, in order.
NL Central: Misjudged Brewers, but considering how close that division was I'm giving a pass
NL West: SO CLOSE! Couldn't judge the Rockies, and in the end the Rockies passed the Diamondbacks by a nose.
prediction: Kyle Schwarber will spend some time in AAA this season
3/6 on division winners, but predicted the Brewers to make the playoffs.
