John Axford Is Perfect in Oscar Picks

As we covered last night, Indians closer John Axford made his annual Oscar predictions on Twitter. And, after going 14-for-15 with his picks in 2013, the expectations were high.

Axford delivered and then some, going a perfect 18-for-18. The Oscars perfect game bid left many baseball fans anxious throughout the broadcast, but it was exciting to follow along. For his part, Axford provided fun reactions in real time.

Just an incredible performance from Axford, who studied film at Notre Dame. The stakes are raised for next year, when he plans to make predictions for all 24 categories.
