All My Predicted Playoff Teams Still Alive, Just Barely In Some Cases

It's the last Tuesday of the season and all my eight predicted playoff teams are mathematically alive.

I was right about Minnesota and Texas. I was right that Philadelphia would make it but wrong about how. The Yankees might end up as the wild card as I predicted. The Braves still have a decent chance to make the playoffs, just not as division winners as I expected. However, my other brilliant picks have not done quite as well.

Boston is hanging by a red thread, instead of winning the division. The St. Louis Cardinals are on that same red thread, behind the team that I have predicted to win in each of the last few seasons, the Cincinnati Reds. Why couldn't I pick them one more time?

The biggest disappointment has been the Colorado Rockies, but only because I expected them to have a month-long hot streak in September, instead of a two week long hot streak leading into an ice cold streak in late September that has just about knocked them out of both races.

All in all, though, I have to say that I didn't make any horrible picks this year. Like say, that the Mets would have made the playoffs! On the other hand, I'd rather be happy than right, right? Maybe.
