2014 MLB Predictions – Records, Division Standings and World Series picks

St. Louis Cardinals World Series

They tell me not to do this every season. By making baseball win/loss record predictions in March, I open myself up to ridicule by early September.

That’s fine. Feel free to look at all my awful picks from last year, including the Blue Jays winning the American League East and the Red Sox “rebounding” with 83 wins. And there was more, I had the Angels winning the AL West and the St. Louis Cardinals missing the playoffs.

Figure Skaters Make Some Fantastic Mid-Jump Faces

Why Chicago Bears would be idiots to not re-sign Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler

It was another brutal and disappointing season for the Chicago Bears. For the second year in a row the team has choked when given the opportunity to make the playoffs by winning one of its last two games.
