I Was Right!…Sort Of…Again!
Posted By JE Powell
I am back! Well, at least to do a bit of bragging. It’s been over two weeks since my last post, but I have been preoccupied with moving and learning the new position I have at work. Hopefully, I will be writing at least twice a week. So, here we go.
As I promised when I wrote my Monthly Predicitons: May, if I were to be correct for the overall monthly record, I said I would do another “I was right, sort of…” post. So, here it is.
I predicted that by the end of May the Cardinals would have finished with a record of 17-12 for the month and an overall record of 33-23. Oh, and by the way, I WAS RIGHT!!! In fact, my batting average for this month is a very respectable .545. Slightly above random chance in reality, but in baseball terms, that’s pretty damn good. I counted the last game of the Atlanta series as a series, even though it was one game. I was wrong on that one. I also counted the first two games against San Fransisco as a series, though it closes out the month. I was right in predicting a 1-1 split those first two games.
I would also like to point out that I predicted a two game sweep of the Astros and I was right on that count, too. I only mention it because I predicted a three game sweep in April and even though I was wrong then, I decided to predict it again and I was right. It’s good to be back, writing about the team I love above all other sports frachises (thought, perhaps, I may start rooting for Winnipeg in the NHL, formerly the Atlanta Thrashers. Why? I don’t really know, I am not really a hockey fan). I hope to have my Monthly Predictions: June up sometime tomorrow.
Until next time, sports fans, this is JE from STL:FTR signing off.
PS, please excuse any glaring grammar or spelling errors as I sacrificed that for simply getting a new post out.
