Professor Bruce Bukiet is 2010 MLB Predictions Champion

The power of math won the day as Professor Bruce Bukiet from the New Jersey Institute of Technology won our 2010 Major League Baseball predictions contest.  Bukiet successfully picked 6 of the 8 teams that made the post season.

“I felt like chasing Secretariat all season long,” said Ed Kasputis, Creative Director for Baseball PhD. “Professor Bukiet did a great job of using math and baseball intuition to have a great year.  I’m going to the library to check out a calculus book in honor of the Professor.”

Kasputis along with two others (Mark Rantala and Baseball Bob) finished second by picking 4 of the 8 post season teams.  Ed Kasputis will be interviewing Professor Bukiet during our podcast featuring the Pittsburgh Pirates which will be released on Friday, October 8th.  Like Professor Bukiet always says, “a day without math is like a day without sunshine.”

Rodney Johnson from playballexperience.com takes the lead!

April is complete and it’s time to review our 2010 Major League predictions that we made on April 2nd.  The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are in first place in the AL East with a record of 17 – 6.  No one from our podcast crew has predicted the Rays to win the AL East.

In the AL Central, the Twins are in first with a record of 15 – 8.  Professor Bukiet, Ed, Farley and Mark have predicted that the Twins will win the AL Central.

In the AL West, the Angels and Athletics are tied with a 12 – 12 record.  Mark, Rodney Johnson, What and I’don’t know have predicted the Angels will win the AL West.

Currently, the New York Yankees would qualify as the American League wild card team.  Professor Bukiet, Rodney Johnson, Ed, Farley, Mark, Baseball Bob, Who and I don’t know have predicted that the Yankees will make the playoffs.

In the NL East, the New York Mets are in first place with a 14 – 9 record.  Only Farley and Who were wise enough to have this vision.

In the NL Central, the St. Louis Cardinals are in first with a 15 – 8 record.  Professor Bukiet, Ed, Baseball Bob, Who and I don’t know predicted that the Cardinals would rule their division in 2010.

In the NL West, the San Diego Padres are currently in first with a 15 – 8 record.  No staff member has predicted that the Padres will rule the West.

Lastly, in the NL wild card, the San Francisco Giants would qualify as the wild card with a 13 – 9 record.  Only Rodney Johnson predicted the Giants to make the playoffs.  It was this bold prediction that allowed Rodney Johnson to capture the lead in our predictions race.  After one month, Rodney Johnson is in the lead with a long season of baseball yet to be played.

President Barack Obama

George W. Bush said that he was a uniter and not a divider.   On April 5, 2010, President Barack Obama galvanized the crowd as he stood on the pitcher’s mound preparing to throw out the first pitch.

Listen to the crowd as our Commander in Chief puts on his baseball cap.  This Friday, we’ll be releasing our Washington Nationals podcast.  Enjoy the video.
