Phils will average over 2 runs per game; maybe 2.1

The Nats certainly have a chance to do that, particularly if the Braves or Marlins falter. As for the Rangers drawing 3 mil, it certainly could happen, but I'm not counting on it. Fans in Arlington are still complacent during the weekdays. And I expect the Marlin home run display to stay intact for a while.

Based on what?

Default Halftime Report

It seems that most of us messed up with Philly, but otherwise we don't look really bad.

And then I recently said:

And now?

They're drawing better than I've expected and they certainly have a real good shot at it this time. That'd be neat to see.

I'm still working on my predictions. They should be ready to go in about three months.

My system takes longer, but what is sacrificed in speed is compensated for with accuracy.

I'l be quite surprised if any teams outside of the good teams I mentioned in the AL make the playoffs.
Interesting to look back on this. I did not expect the Phils to be last, but I did think Nats had enough to take division even if Phils were healthy, and I thought 2nd would be a battle.
Truthfully, only Phils injury not known 3 months ago is Halladay.

I expected Mets to be about .500, not terrible. They played well under Collins year 1 given the injury list, and with Wright and Davis coming back, I expected improvement. I did not think Dickey would be this good, but I expected a few more wins from Niese at this point.
