Professor Bruce Bukiet Wins Predictions Contest … again

Bukiet wins in 2013

3 out of 4 Years

Professor Bruce Bukiet from the New Jersey Institute of Technology has won his 3rd Baseball PhD predictions contest in the last four years (2010, 2011 & 2013).  Bukiet successfully predicted seven of this year’s ten Major League Baseball playoff teams (Rays, Tigers, A’s, Cardinals, Dodgers, Braves & Reds). The key to Bukiet’s victory was that he was the only participant in our predictions contest who predicted that the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants would not make this year’s post season.

Bukiet did not predict the firing of Dusty Baker by the Cincinnati Reds this week unlike Baseball PhD Committee member, Farley Dillinger who has been predicting Baker’s demise since 2010.  Dillinger, a Cubs fan has a long memory of Baker’s October exploits.

Four participants finished one team behind the Professor with 6 of their teams making the MLB Post-season.  Congratulations to Baseball PhD Committee members, David Matejzcyk (Tigers, Indians, A’s, Cardinals, Reds & Dodgers) and Mark Rantala (Rays, Tigers, Indians, Braves, Reds & Dodgers) along with Andre Lower from baseballbypositions.com (Rays, Tigers, A’s, Braves, Reds & Dodgers) and Australian Justin Woods (Tigers, A’s, Rays, Cardinals, Reds & Braves).

Will any mortal have the guts to predict that this year’s World Series Champion will not make the playoffs next season?  Professor Bukiet truly understands the power of math.

Professor Bukiet will be honored during our League Championship Series podcast (Episode 228) which will be released on Friday, October 11, 2013.
