Man I made some TERRIBLE predictions

So it is the All Star Break now and it is time to take a look at my predictions for the year.
And some of the things that I foresaw... well... they were pretty easy to predict.

Wow! The Red Sox, Yankees, Phillies and Giants would all be good? What a soothsayer!

I also picked the White Sox, the Marlins and the Reds to be playing in the post season.

And I said Josh Johnson would be the Cy Young Award winner.

In my "Fearless Predictions" post, I predicted a bunch of stuff.

Care to hear some of worst predictions?

- Angel Vernon Wells was going to have a great season.

- The Astros would shock everyone and be near .500 for most of the year.

- The A's would contend all year.

- Jose Bautista's home run total would drop. 22 tops.

- The Brewers and Cardinals would flop and not be factors.

- The Diamondbacks and Indians would finish in the cellar.

- The Marlins would be the most exciting team to watch in all of baseball.

- Reid Brignac would be a solid shortstop for the Rays.

- Edinson Volquez would win 18 games.

- Josh Beckett would be awful all season.

- The Rockies would trade for Prince Fielder.

- The Royals would finally give up on Alex Gordon.

- The Tigers would be such a disaster that Jim Leyland would quit or be fired.

- The White Sox would win the Division and Adam Dunn would be a great fit.

- Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon would both flop with the Yankees.

That's a lot of lousy predictions for one blog post.
Ah well...
I was right when I said the Angels would be big contenders.

If the World Series is Phillies and Angels, I'll look brilliant!

Then again, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Rest up and let's get the second half of the season started!

    You also kept saying the Mets will lose 90 games. They certainley still can, but they are over .500
