AccuScore Predicts 2009 Season to Look A Lot Like 2008 Season
Another prediction system out there has gone and pegged the Cubs as the class of the NL Central....Yawn! The fun part is that AccuScore - the leader in sports forecasting - has run over "10,000 simulations" to come up with the revelation that everything will end up exactly like 2008...technology at its finest. The same three division winners and the Brewers win the Wild Card with the only discrepancies from 2008 being the Dodgers having the best record in the NL over the Cubs by a game and the San Francisco Giants move up to second from fourth in the NL West pushing the Diamondbacks and Rockies down a spot each.
I did a quick search for past Accuscore predictions and you know, they're pretty good. In 2008 they correctly predicted the Cubs would win the NL Central again. From 1992-2005 they nailed the Braves NL East division titles. In 1996 and 2004, they had Bill Clinton and George W. Bush both getting re-elected. In 1999 and 2000 they were right about the Yankees repeating as World Series champions and every Monday to Friday they're right that I drive into work.
Cubs vs. Yankees in the final tuneup is under way....
