Who's in First - August 1 2010

Professor Bukiet and Baseball Bob are tied with 4.5 points each

We are four months into the season with Professor Bruce Bukiet from the New Jersey Institute of Technology holding steady.  This month Baseball Bob (the smartest man we know) has surged to tie the professor.  Both brainiacs have 4.5 points.  Both men predicted that the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals would make the playoffs.  Currently the Cardinals are tied for first in the NL Central with the Cincinnati Reds.  This is how each man got one half point.

Bukiet also predicted that the Tampa Bay Rays and Atlanta Braves would make the playoffs.  Baseball Bob has predicted that the Chicago White Sox and San Francisco Giants would make the playoffs.  If the season were to end today, all of these teams would make the playoffs.

Tied for third are Baseball PhD’s Who and playballexperience.com‘s Rodney Johnson (Johnson is also the official scorer for the Arizona Diamondbacks). Both man and boy predicted that the New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals would also make the playoffs.  Who also predicted that the Texas Rangers would make the post season while Johnson predicted that the San Francisco Giants will also still be playing in October.

Can anyone catch Professor Bukiet?  The key teams to watch are Tampa Bay and Texas.  If both of these teams continue to play well, the Professor’s legacy will continue to grow.
