2015 NCAA Tournament: Final Four Predictions

March may be over but the Madness is still rolling on this weekend as we have finally come to the Final Four. All Division I programs began their seasons with dreams of getting to Indianapolis with a chance to win a national championship but now we are down to four. The focus is on the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats as they aim to be the first ever team to go 40-0 but they will have to get through the Badgers for the second straight year. Meanwhile, a rolling Duke team and a quasi-Cinderella in Michigan State await. Who will advance to Monday's National Championship Game? Here are my predictions.

2015 MLB on ESPN Announcers

Major League Baseball has been an integral piece of the ESPN landscape since their initial contract in 1990 and this year, there are some changes to their production including a wholesale revamping of their graphics (see images here, here and here). I am a big fan of the new scorebug (the simpler and cleaner, the better) but I am not a huge fan of the permanent strikezone. There will also be a pregame edition of Baseball Tonight on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 before that night's game, which should look a little different than your typical edition of BT.

But while there are some changes to the production side, there are not that many changes to their broadcast crews. Let's take a look.

2015 MLB Predictions

After one of the more unexpected World Series matchups of all time, the San Francisco Giants won their third championship in five years after defeating the Kansas City Royals in seven games. In other words, just what I predicted. So now, what is next? Will the Giants break the odd-year streak of missing the playoffs, or will they become the first team since the Yankees threepeat in 1998-2000 to repeat? Will the Royals do one better than they did a year, or just make the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1984-5 or will they be on the outside looking in come fall? Or will somebody else win the Commissioner's Trophy?

Ladies and gentlemen, here are my 2015 Major League Baseball predictions.
