You know, I may have mentioned this before, but I don’t like to make predictions. And for good reason. We can see what happens when I do.
But, since I have no serious rooting interest for any of these teams (although I have a lot of rooting-against interest), what the hell? What can it hurt?
These are kind of a cross between predictions and wishes and are thoroughly unresearched.
