    LAST YEARS PREDICTIONS:



    We went from a mean of 89 to 97.

    Is that more because of what the team as a whole did last year or the addition of Fielder?

    My guess is a little of both..I bumped my prediction from 92 to 101.

    Just over 27 hours to get your pick in, but more like 24-25 to have it added to the main list.

    Wow, there's a lot more people submitting predictions this year than last. I guess the generous offer of a certificate of achievement for the winner from me was too enticing to pass up. Perhaps the prospect of a great season provided some small motivation as well.

    I don't know if I've ever predicted this many wins in a season.

    Every time you play a hand of you poker you wanna run through a mental check list. Head Position Hand Position Neck Position Breathing Posture. More than 25 items. It's a lot. And that why I've come up with a handy mnemonic device. Just one word: HPHPNPBPECMSPAMDCPAFTSTTL. It's easy.

    If the Tigers only win 70, we need to slap Biggs with a wet carp.

    Sabretooth didn't submit his research for the contest but he did show his work. I consider him entered.

    Sorry guys the formating is tough the way I did it and cannot add anymore predictions. I tried text boxes etc, but it is screwing up the whole thing. I spent about 20 minutes trying to get it to work.

    Hey thanks for trying. What you did so far makes the job of figuring out who wins so much easier than it would otherwise be. I only just now noticed your comment or I would have responded sooner. You rock, man!

    These folks came in just in the nick of time but too late for the formatting issue to be overcome.

    I would usually close this thread but if people want to comment off and on over the season then so be it. It stays open.

    Oh, I don't give a **** whether I win any self-appointed "official" contest. I just want it to be known that I nailed it.

    There are 30 MLB teams so each one should win the World Series on average once every 30 years.
