I just briefly ran thru it, no one stood out too much recently. alloverjr was killing it there for about 4-5 years. edabbs had a nice little 3 year run 07-09 (not sure what happened after that). I feel like I have done pretty fair the last few years, I at least was in the neighborhood. Problem was I kept listening to my head when my gut was calling it much closer, which I find extremely interesting.
'10 - Actual: 91 wins, Sir Charles was the only one who hit it on the head, but Johnny Footstool said 92 and the Central Champs. I had 85 but I did say my gut was calling for 87-88.
'09 - Actual: 78 wins, a host of people hit that including yours truly although midseason I wasn't feeling so optimistic then they went on a tear.
Prior to that I stunk. Which is why I did a combination of head (89 wins) and now gut (World Series Champs) predictions this year. And I gotta tell ya this start although not really all that surprising considering the opponents is making me feel pretty good about my gut feeling.
