We’ve come to the end of another month, and Drew and I are about to post a new prediction post for the month of July (look for it tomorrow night before/during the first game against the Giants). In the mean time, we’ve got to review the predictions from the month of June and see how what we thought matched up against reality.
Unfortunately, the Nats had to deal with another rain out, but we’ll get to see this game played on July 21st (and Ashley and I may be there)! So we’ll just say for now that the Nats are living up to expectations. A half point each…since we don’t know if we would have been right or not.
What can we say? Psychics-R-Us. And the Nats? Kicking butts and taking names. 1 point apiece!
@ Red Sox
This was a turning point. The Nationals showed that they could really hold their own and thrive against a team that has been quite strong in the recent past. And it didn’t hurt to give a little payback for the final pre-season game in April. 0 points…not that we’re sad about being wrong.
@ Blue Jays
If you don’t believe that Boston was the turning point, look to this set of games. Are the Nats for real? That’s a clown question, bro. Another 0 points apiece, for being wrong in the best way possible.
We’d said earlier in our predictions that the Nats were going to lose sometime…it just happened to be in the form of being swept by the Bronx Bombers after sweeping two other AL East opponents. 0 points. It could be worse though.
After a tough series against the Yanks, the Nats could have folded. Instead they came back tough against the Rays to prove that they still had IT and could run with the big boys. 0 points for flipped standings.
We were both wrong. Drew was optimistic, I was pessimistic. The Nats gave us halfway in between. Not being swept against a surging team? Pretty good. 0 points awarded.
This was a close one. For the two games they lost, things were close – especially the last game. So while Drew wasn’t going to be right, it looks like I was a lot closer than I thought. 0 points for the split decision.
Gotta hand this one to Drew. The Nats seem to have the Braves’ number this season. Good stuff. 1 point to Drew!
Drew was a bit closer on this one thanks to the missing game, which gave him the correct losing record. And he wins this month overall, with a score of 2.5 points to my 1.5. We were both fairly wrong about this month…but in the best way possible!
Look back tomorrow for the first part of our July prediction post, and then keep checking back through the rest of the week when Ashley and I go through a backlog of old games we haven’t posted about!
