John Axford Goes 18-for-18 with Oscar Predictions

John Axford Oscars

John Axford is pretty much incapable of pitching a perfect game, seeing as how he is a reliever.  But as he proved last night, he is more than capable of calling a perfect Oscars.

That is exactly what the newly acquired member of the Cleveland Indians did last night, as Axford went a perfect 18-for-18 in his Oscar predictions.

Yes, he had 12 Years a Slave for Best Picture, Cate Blanchett for best Actress, and he even had Matthew McConaughey winning the award for Best Actor.  Here’s the proof, via Axford’s Facebook page:

Axford has done well with his Oscar predictions in the past, going 14-for-15 during last year’s Academy Awards, but even he seemed to be surprised by his performance last night.

Here’s what he tweeted after correctly predicting the first 16 awards:
