After a crazy finish to the regular season, I’m not sure I want to do this but I will. If you want to submit your Playoffs predictions, feel free. Keep in mind that I wrote this before either game started and I did not change it after the Yankee rain postponement tonight.
Rays over Rangers in 4
Tigers over Yankees in 5
I think Rays ride their hot streak to easily take care of the Rangers in 4. The other series should be a lot more interesting.
The Yanks definitely have the better ERA but the Tigers’ staff was better in terms of quality starts – that can certainly go a long way in the playoffs. I give Verlander the edge over CC and if the Yankees bullpen has a hiccup or two, they will be one and done.
Phillies over Cardinals in 4
Diamondbacks over Brewers in 5
At the beginning of the season, I thought 97.5 was a high O/U number forPhiladelphiaand they surpassed it. Although it kills me to root for the Phillies, I can’t go against Roy Halladay and they should have no problem surpassing the Cards who should not have even made the playoffs if it wasn’t for the massive Atlanta collapse.
On paper, the Brewers are a better team than the Diamondbacks by a mile but that is why you play the game. Personally I have an interest in seeingArizonado well with the Jays trading Aaron Hill and Johnny Mac to them this season.
Tigers over Rays in 6
Diamondbacks over Phillies in 7
Tigers over D-backs in 6
But I will revise the later rounds as we move along. What are your picks?
