Enjoying the World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals? Almost as entertaining is looking back at the pre-season predictions of the baseball "experts." As Ira Stoll explains, back in March, the ESPN web site published the predictions of 43 baseball so-called experts on the 2013 season. Not a single one of ESPN's 43 predictions had either the Red Sox or the Cardinals in the World Series. It's a good lesson in why we should treat all "expert" predictions, whether they're about sports or politics, with the skepticism they deserve.
