Hey, come look at how wrong we’re going to be!

Predicting baseball isn’t easy. While there are 162 games to separate the contenders from pretenders, there are always a few teams every year that sneak up and surprise someone. Not many people thought the Baltimore Orioles were going to be as good as they were, and I imagine a fair number of people lost bets when the Kansas City Royals limped to a third-place finish.

You would think we, the Bless You Boys staff, would learn our lesson. We try to predict what is going to happen every year, and sure enough, our picks look hilariously bad at the end of the regular season. This year was no different. Two of our writers (not naming names but you can see them here) picked the Twins to win the division! I picked the Yankees! There are all sorts of egg-on-face picks in that link above.

Since we’re dumb, we have doubled down on our attempt at predicting things. Here are the BYB staff predictions for this year’s MLB postseason.
