I was under the same impression. I know that I didn't assert that my "buy/sells" were what I expected to happen.

I think I was 5-2 on the ones I responded to. Didn't see Atkinson getting 30.

Yeah they're not necessarily predictions. I looked for things that I thought I could get good odds on, underrated players I could talk up, etc...

We do have predictions in other threads though. ..

Yep. If anything I'd consider the buyer or seller the one making the prediction. Even that's probably questionable.

I just quoted mine and the reply for context on the only reply I had in the thread. Given the situation I thought it was interesting, not to self congratulate or one up anyone.

As a fellow old guy, I'm sorry. I'll give you credit for being prescient for identifying a bunch of things that should have been bought. As opposed to my wife who buys many things that shouldn't be.

Well let's see here.

The first Fire Torts thread appears on the boards in November.
Not sure if one ever appeared this year. I don't think so though. The only time one could have was after the first 2 games. So I think that I was wrong.

Anton Forsberg wins the backup job.

Matt Calvert gets traded this season
