ESPN & SI - What do they know


Before we take too much delight in BTC's prediction that the Brewers wouldn't win the division and/or exceed 90 wins this season, we should also note that the overpaid talking heads of sports reporting also couldn't see this coming.  Below for pure entertainment value is the predictions made by SI and ESPN personnel about how they predicted the division winners would end up this season.  I was especially fond of Steve Berthiaume's courageous pick - God bless'm - of Houston winning the NL Central.
