It's the WSI Crystal Ball Challenge 2k2!

Winner gets: well nothing (unless you have a free suggestion)

Directions: Just fill in your predictions for the numerous categories and post a reply. You can edit it until April 1. Simple as that. Some categories have higher point values. Person with the most points wins.

Hopefully people will join in and maybe it will get stuck at the top. If not I'll probably bump it up a couple times. After a while if nobody joins I will get the hint. Games are only as good as the people that join it.

You are free to edit your post until the season begins. Any suggestions or insults :D: are welcome.

I still think I would have won the Rivals prediction contest... Oh well, I guess I'll have to buy my own Hamms.

I'm confused... Why would Giambi have a chance at this award when he played in 154 games in 2001?
