Default 2018 Preseason Prediction contest winner

Congratulations to voodoochile (HEY THAT'S ME!) for winning the 2018 preseason prediction contest.

I didn't get much right for the team stats but I absolutely crushed the league outcome part of the contest with 65/80 possible points.

Some other stats from this years' picks.

Noneck was the only person to got a single point for number of Sox wins. No one else came within 5 of the final total of 62. Optimism is apparently a lot more prevalent on these boards than some would have us believe.

Of course no one picked the Sox to make the playoffs and that along with Houston winning the ALW were the only two categories that were correctly picked by everyone who played. The Dodgers and Indians came close but two people actually foresaw the Rockies having a good year and a couple people actually picked the Twins in the ALC

Washington was the biggest disappointment. No one picked the Braves this year and only one person picked the Mets.

It wasn't a great year to be a Sox fan or to be a Sox fan predictor, stats and guesses were all over the place due to the volatile nature of the roster.

Thanks everyone for playing. Hope we have a better team outcome both in terms of talent and in terms of picks next year.

Thanks. Got to give a shoutout to Rdivaldi, A. Cavatica and Zakath for getting 40 points each in the Sox sections. The pitching in particular was SO volatile points were hard to come by. I got totally wrecked in those sections and of course no one had even heard of Dan Palka last Spring...

Congrats, Voodoo!

Wow, I actually placed eighth. That makes me the Iowa football (and I enjoy the Hawkeyes) of the standings.

Good enough to finish in the top 10, just not good enough to win the championship. Next year
