MLB Predictions

The predictions were made before the season started. I think that should be clear with having the Indians reach 90 wins. Were we to make the predictions today, we'd put them at 83 or so because they look terrible. And for the non-baseball fans who are wondering why such posts are compromising the usually high journalistic standards of DMS: tough. Baseball's going to be around for the next 8 months, so get used to it. You're going to have to suffer through innumerable posts about the Indians and how Tim McCarver is totally not smart.

The Pirates are putting their time and money in all the right places.

Best thing they did all last year.

Yeah, the Pirates prognosis is disappointing. You should have more faith in them. 68-100? Show a little respect! Foo'l
