Pre-Season Prediction Group Results

I don't remember who posted this way back in February, but there was a TT predictions group for the 2010 MLB season. As it turns out, I did fairly well, so I just thought I'd pat myself on the back a bit in a way so that others can also enjoy my accurate predictions.

AL Central        Actual        My Prediction

Minnesota         94-68           96-66

Chicago            88-74           87-75

Detroit              81-81           82-80

Cleveland         69-93            70-92

Kansas City      67-95           65-97

I was terrible on the rest of my predictions, picking the MarinersCardinals, and Dodgers to win their respective divisions, and having the Rays in third place. I correctly picked the Phillies to win their division.

As far as the player statistics that I predicted, let's just say I predicted every single Twins position player to finish the year with more home runs than they actually did. The one notable exception was how eerily accurate my Delmon Young prediction was.

Prediction: .301/.331, 21 HR, 20 BB, 88 K

Actual:      .298/.333, 21 HR, 28 BB, 81 K

I not-so-accurately predicted him to hit 28 doubles, when he actually finished with 46 two-baggers. I was overly optomistic on most of the rest of the lineup, although I was within .009 for the batting average of Cuddyer, Hudson, and Hardy.

Does anyone else have positive (or negative) results to share from their predictions? Here is the link to my predictions, and there is a time/date stamp on there as proof. I'm assuming it can be viewed without logging in to the site.
