We will see who is smarter.  A random number generator, or a random baseball fan.  On that note, I'm going to see Moneyball this weekend.  Excited.

In my predictions for 2011, I'd give myself a B, mostly based on my awards picks.

  • I got three out of eight playoff teams (Rays, Brewers, Phillies)
  • Prince Fielder has an outside shot at MVP
  • Carlos Quentin does not
  • Jared Weaver should finish second in Cy Young voting, and Clayton Kershaw will likely win
  • The Royals did not sniff .500
  • The Storm Chasers not only made the playoffs, but won the PCL Championship over Sacramento and Round Rock!
  • Alex Gordon did breakout
  • The rest of my breakout/bust picks were bad

We shall see who wins!
