The fact of the matter is this. You can crunch all the numbers all you want in February, with all the info you care to arm yourself with and all the expert advice you can cram your head full of, but in the end very little of that matters. Who would've predicted the White Sox to win it all last year? Who would've predicted the Detroit Tigers versus the Cardinals, after a ragtag eight-three win season, to face off in the fall classic at the end of this season? Not many number crunchers, that's for sure. Baseball has way too many variables to consistently make baseball team predictions, or fantasy baseball predictions correctly on a consistent basis. Scouts make a considerable living doing nothing but watching baseball players and teams and pitchers and even they are right only a small percentage of the time. How many sure fire first round draft picks have been busts, and how many stars have come from the bottom of the draft? Baseball has to be played a hundred and sixty-two times by so many teams, there's no way to keep up with all of it. Factor in injuries and slumps, age and mismanagement, boneheaded owners like Peter Angelos, and the x factor are far too varied to be able to foresee, that's why all of the so called experts baseball team predictions usually end up no better than mine or yours.
What to do then to have a chance with your buddies or in your fantasy league if you are competitive by nature. There's always astrology. Seriously. There are even astrologers, such as Andrea Mallis, who specialize in baseball and sports astrology. Andrea has even been on ESPN before. Andrea works with the Oakland A's radio shows and has an 80% accuracy rating when utilizing the right info to read players charts.
Maybe Billy Beane isn't so smart after all. Maybe there's more to the stingy Athletics recent success than the book Money Ball would lead you to believe. Andrea has been doing this work since the magical 2001 season, and while she's not a psychic, she devises charts based on the players' info themselves. She does accurately use astrology to predict baseball. Perhaps a sports astrologer can help give you the info you need to accurately make your own baseball and fantasy baseball predictions.
