Update from Tom: I am reposting this and putting it on the front page. Since the season starts on the weekend we should be ready to give our predictions now.....
As Rince stated in his post today:
"So let's all share opinions, and see if we do better than the experts."
This got me to thinking about doing a community prediction on the standings and major award winners in MLB for 2009. I’ll give you mine, feel free to add yours at the end I (or someone else) can compile them and give the community’s prediction or we can hold onto them for bragging rights at the end of the season.
