One of my favorite posts to write each year is my official predictions for the season (as opposed to my unofficial predictions, which don't exist). I love the post despite the fact that I am generally quite horrible at predicting things. Don't believe me? Well, if the court allows, allow me to enter into evidence the following predictions I made last season that went horribly awry:
--Saying the Angels would let Aybar go via free agency. This is one I was happy to be wrong about.
--There was no massive Angels-Rangers brawl to the chagrin of many who had hoped to see Ian Kinsler get punched in the face.
--I actually though Jordan Walden was going to be fine and go 38-for-42 on save chances. I mean, I don't even know how to defend that. I really have to lay off the bath salts.
--Jeff Mathis would have a higher batting average than Iannetta. In my defense, I was trolling myself.
--Peter Bourjos would make the All-Star team. This is starting to get embarrassing now
--Mark Trumbo would prove to be an adequate third baseman and start 75 games at that position. YIKES! I feel like I need to hand in my Angel blogger badge and gun now.
This is the part where I would then list the predictions I got right, if only there were any that I definitely nailed. There were basically two that I kind of sort of was correct about, but not correct enough to brag about.
Despite that, I'm going to subject myself, and thus you, to this charade once more. So, without further adieu, here are The Monkey's predictions for the Angels and the 2013 season:no comments
