3 months ago, a few of us chose some teams as to who would be baseball's national champion. Those picks?
Boston92: Boston Red Sox
PIA777: Chicago Cubs
Oli80: New York Mets
Pipo777: Arizona Diamondbacks
KaiGwyer: Minnesota Twins
Wrenchbender: Toronto Blue Jays
Thepilot: Detroit Tigers
FlyDeltaJets87: Cincinnati Reds
LHMARK: Los Angeles Angels
TLG: Milwaukee Brewers
Piercey: Houston Astros
ORFflyer: Atlanta Braves
Yellowstone: San Francisco Giants
ATCGOD: Seattle Mariners
YOWza: Wahington Nationals
Galapagapop: San Diego Padres
As only 16 teams were chosen (which is half of all teams), one would beg the question, "Will ANY of these teams win the world series?"
These are the current top 16 teams in the league:
How did we do?
Well, 11 of the 16 teams chosen are in the 'actual' top 16. Who was not? Toronto (17), Cincinnati (29), Houston (27), San Fransisco (26), and Washington (25).
Those stats also means that 5 teams are in the 'actual' top 16 that are not on the list as one chosen by us. Cleveland is one of those teams ranked 4th in all of MLB. That could be bad news. Only time will tell though and we shall see.
