Can the Professor Repeat?

This week is Astros week with our podcast featuring the Houston Astros being released on Friday, September 2nd.  Ed Kasputis will be interviewing Timothy De Block from crawfishboxes.com and James Yasko from astroscounty.com about their beloved Astros.

On another note, with 30 days left in the regular season, Professor Bruce Bukiet from the New Jersey Institute of Technology is leading in our predictions contest.  If the season would end today, 6 of Bukiet’s 8 teams would make the playoffs (Red Sox, Yankees, Tigers, Rangers, Phillies & Braves.)  Jonathan Eig and Baseball PhD’s Mark Rantala are tied for second with 5 teams that would make the playoffs today.

“The key is the American League Central.” says Ed Kasputis, Creative Director of Baseball PhD. “Professor Bukiet has picked the Tigers while Jonathan Eig has chosen the White Sox.  Whoever wins the AL Central will win it all.  Catching the Professor will be as hard as catching the motivated Astros fan whose video is below.”
