Accountability (Week 6 report card)

It's report card time here at The Sultan of Squat. The baseball season is six weeks in the books and it's time to measure up my predictions against what has actually happened.

I know it is a LONG season and anything can happen, but it's still nice to stay accountable for my decisions and admit where I may have gone wrong. So I will give each team a letter grade according to how I think my prediction is faring.


This will be my last such post until the season reaches the 12-week mark.

  1. dan- Why were you so down on my O's in March? Padres & Rox have been mildly surprising.
