Our long national nightmare is finally over! The Cubs play today at 1:35 ET, and at around 5:00 ET I will be drunk and the Cubs will be a game out of first place. Now that the season is here, I rounded up all of our contributors and asked around for predictions. Without further ado, let me present them!

Aisley's picks are forthcoming, he's busy performing up-to-the-minute analysis. 

Interesting things to note: 

There were no consensus division champions.

7 people chose 6 different WS champs; the only two-time selection was the Tigers. 

Verlander had 4 votes for Cy, Price had 3. Kershaw had 3 votes, Strasburg, Cain and Halladay one each.

The consensus (so far) playoff teams: Nationals, Dodgers, Tigers, Angels.

No MVP candidate had more than 3 votes (Trout). Longoria and Votto had 2.

Only Josh and Aisley has an NL team winning the WS.

Resident Optimist dmick89 is only second highest on the Cubs this year; AndCounting thinks the Cubs are winning 77 games!!!
