Pet Peeves, Part 2

People who don't stand by their predictions.

One of the New York papers put in all of their staff predictions. Of the 9 writers, 7 put the Yankees 1st the other two put the Red Sox first. The two that put the Red Sox first, who did they predict as the AL MVPs? Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez.

That's completely hedging. That's not wanting to be completely wrong, so you choose to not be completely right. There is no way a Yankee wins the MVP if they lose first place in the division for the first time in a decade.
