Results for my 2012 MLB predictions

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Perhaps even more entertaining than making preseason predictions is revisiting them after the season and grading myself.

Last year’s highlights include accurately predicting the NL Central and Mark Teixeira’s stolen base count, while epically failing on my prediction for Brett Gardner’s runs total. But hey, I hit .327 (16/49) so I’m ecstatic. See full results below.
