Let us celebrate Paul Sporer and Matt Sussman

Baseball Prospectus posted their pre-season predictions for 2014, and it's pretty much exactly what you'd expect for the Astros. EXCEPT! Two fine gentlemen: Paul Sporer and Matt Sussman had two notable predictions:

Paul Sporer picked George Springer to be the AL Rookie of the Year.
Matt Sussman picked the AL West as follows: Rangers, A's, Angels, Astros, Mariners.

Yeah, you read that right. The Astros have been so bad in the last three seasons that one guy picking them to not finish last merits a special post.

Steffan Segui also predicts the Astros to come in 4th, ahead of Seattle. Think these guys are angling for jobs? :)

Anyone excepting a miracle season from the Astros (70+ wins) is full of it. It's going to be another long year and 100 losses, again, is a real possibility. The only thing to look forward to this season is that some of the impact prospects will FINALLY start getting called up to the bigs.
