Indians closer John Axford perfect…on Oscars predictions

New Cleveland closer John Axford took to social media on Sunday to make his predictions for the Oscars. He made selections for 18 of the categories and got every single one correct.

Axford, a proud and well-documented film buff, isn’t new to Oscar predictions. According to his Facebook page, he was 14/15 last year, 11/15 in 2012 and 11/13 in 2011. That’s 84% accuracy heading into last night’s event. After an 18 for 18, his four year record is 54 for 61—an 89% clip.

For those who will undoubtedly inquire, Axford has 106 saves and 21 blown opportunities in five big league seasons.
