Interesting, I think your analysis will tell us more about the list members than the team :)

Some of are trying to win, and some of us (me, Paolo, the Snoops) are trying to inject positive energy. If I were trying to win I would probably go with 54/55, but I prefer to try to bring hope and optimism into the season while I can.

However, we're usually very wrong. Again, I haven't counted, but I bet if you went back and did some sort of "over-under" breakdown ff past years, you'd find a vast majority on one side or the other every year: either we'd generally pick too many wins or too few wins. Or put another way, you might expect half of us to be over, half under, but it rarely works that way.  Some day, now that I've retired, I'll try to figure it out.
