Oscars 2014: Cleveland Indians pitcher John Axford goes 18-for-18 on his Facebook picks


The Oscars always brings out the handicapper in everyone, and one of those this evening was Cleveland Indians pitcher, John Axford. Prior to tonight’s events, Axford took 18 categories, including the major ones, and shared his predictions. And, in a pretty amazing feat, the right-hander was spot on with all of them.

No matter what way you try and spin it, that’s actually a pretty amazing accomplishment. Sometimes, there’s no telling what kind of outcomes these award shows can bring, but Axford made it look fairly easy this evening with the way this all turned out for him.

As you can see, Axford has come close a few times with nailing a perfect record on his picks and tonight was just his night.

I’m sure that Cleveland sports fans right now are violently hoping that this luck translates into his performance on the mound come this summer.
