I can't even remember all the categories we listed at WSI, but shouldn't most of them should be decided by now

LOL! The link is just beneath the Soxogram on the Clubhouse header, Mr. 94 wins.

I refers to Ode's prediction of 94 wins for the Sox, Mr. 92 wins.

I didn't see anything but the list of predictions on this link.

Is there somewhere the winners for each category are listed? and is there an overall scorecard or leaders board for the WSI predictions?

looking at some of the predictions, I had to ask a couple of questions, e.g., since lofton and durham moved on, who the heck ended the season in a sox uniform with the most steals? , even though they probably didn't get as many as kenny or ray-ray in a sox iniform this year

Division: 2nd
Postseason: nothin'
Average: Frank Thomas (Magglio Ordonez)
Homers: Magglio
RBI: Magglio
OPS: Frank Thomas (Magglio)
Steals: Lofton
Walks: Frank Thomas
SO's: Durham (Thomas)
Wins: Buehrle
Saves: Foulke
SO's: Jon Garland (Wright)
ERA: Keith Foulke (2nd to Marte)
BB's: Jon Garland
Losses: Todd Ritchie
