We may be homers, but none of us picked the Houston Astros to finish in first place this year. Instead of laying out everyone’s projected standings, I took the liberty of taking the average win total for each team and then putting our cumulative standings together. Here’s what we came up with.
What we all agreed upon was that the Rangers would finish last, while almost everyone had the Mariners finishing first. Only two of us had the A’s finishing above .500 this season, so it looks like we’re not buying what Billy Beane is selling this season.
One brave man put along with his predictions that the Houston Astros would finish with 87 wins, and that would be good enough to grab them the second wild card spot in 2015. Most fans are taking the wait and see approach as the season progresses, but somewhere right around our aggregate Astros record is where we hope to see The Hinchmen this season. Only time will tell how right (or utterly wrong) we are. Remember to fill in your predictions in the comment section below!
