You know how people like to run Madden games to see who will win the Super Bowl? Well, Sony has gone one step further and decided to send me an e-mail predicting how the entire 2007 MLB season will pan out via their latest game MLB 07 The Show. Check out what the future will be and see if you disagree (there's gotta be some sports fans here, you can't all be nerds, can you?).
