Going On Record: 2011 MLB Predictions | Disciples of Uecker

Disciples of Uecker

We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

First off, a quick programming note: apologies for going AWOL the last two weeks. I had a busy (but extremely fun) time first in Arizona during the annual FanGraphs meetup and then in Florida for National Club Baseball Association spring training. We’ll get to more Brewers-centric analysis soon, but first, I’d like to go on record with my predictions for the 2011 season, given the nature of the punditry that myself and others partake in.

I entered this in friend-of-the-blog Larry Granillo’s annual prediction contest over at Wezen-Ball, where you and yours are also most welcome to participate (although I don’t know why you’d bother…). Without further ado, here are my hardly-pored-over predictions for the 2011 baseball season.

    Aw, come on! You have the Crew going all the way to the Series but dropping it to the BoSox? Take that optimism the rest of the way, man!

    a) I play club ball at tennessee and pitched against wisconsin congrats on stomping us. (assuming you go there)
    b) It will be very interesting to see who gets the wild card in the NL

      Yeah… I had a rough week down there. I was the lefty DH and probably the only one who didn’t get a hit for us in that game.

    Come on! The Rockies are a much more proven team than the Brewers are! So we can beat an elite team like the Phillies but lose to a question mark in the Brewers? (I wanna see if Grienke and Marcum can pitch at Miller Park before I say anything about them)

    • Jack Moore says: March 25, 2011

      Playoffs are the crapshoot of all crapshoots. I could’ve just flipped a coin to advance teams and would’ve felt just as confident on the picks.

    I respect a guy who will publicly put his team in the big game in his predictions and stand by it. Here’s hoping you’re wrong about the outcome of MIL vs. BOS!
