Shocking development: We actually found people NOT picking Dodgers to win NL West
Browsing through presason prognosticators for the 2014 season was not all that exciting for Giants fans.
Dodgers, Dodgers, Dodgers, Dodgers Dodgers, Dodgers.
It seems like everybody and their Aunt Jemima is picking the Dodgers to win the NL West in 2014 … or worse.
Yeah, the Almighty Dollar is the sexy pick for 2014.
If there is a consolation for Giants fans, it’s two-fold.
1, Of those folks picking the Dodgers to take the NL West, many — if not a majority — are also predicting the Giants to secure a wild-card spot.
2, When the Giants won World Series titles in 2010 and 2012, there weren’t a lot of people picking them to NL West in those seasons.
But not everyone is being seduced by the Dodgers’ bling.
Here’s a sampling of the prognosticators who are actually picking the Giants to take the NL West in 2014.
