2010 Playoff Predictions!

Postby GiantsFan14 » Sun Oct 03, 2010 7:52 pm

So while I'm riding the high of the Giants clinching the West, I thought it'd be fun to see some predictions on how the playoffs will turn out.

ALDS- NY @ MIN- NY in 5
ALDS- TEX @ TB- TB in 4

NLDS- ATL @ SF- SF in 4
NLDS- CIN @ PHI- PHI in 3
--------------------
ALCS- NY @ TB- NY in 6
NLCS- SF @ PHI- SF in 6
--------------------
WS- NY @ SF- SF in 7
--------------------
WS CHAMPS- YOUR SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS

I can dream! :-D

As long as anyone besides Philly comes out of the NL, I'll be happy.

ALDS- NY @ MIN- NY in 4
ALDS- TEX @ TB- TEX in 4

NLDS- ATL @ SF- SF in 4
NLDS- CIN @ PHI- PHI in 4
--------------------
ALCS- NY @ TEX- TEX in 7
NLCS- SF @ PHI- PHI in 4 or 5
--------------------
WS- TEX @ PHI- PHI in 6
--------------------
WS CHAMPS- YOUR PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES

My thoouugghtttsssss:
- NYY haven't got 3 usable play off SPs. Hughes has been belted in the 2nd half. MIN could win that series if they get a few lucky breaks.
- Tampa's starting pitchers haven't been very amazing this year, Texas should be able to out-pitch them as a group.
- That SF/PHI series looks good on paper, but I have a gut feeling that PHI will rip them to shreds. :-?

I think the Braves are being underrated. Heyward, Lee, McCann have big bats. Also the SP is very deep here and the bullpen is very well crafted.

I had a similar prediction, except ATL beats SF. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks TEX will make some noise. Vlad/Hamilton/Cruz are a formidable offensive trio and Lee/Lewis/Wilson are a solid top three.

A few months ago I drunkenly predicted SF vs. TEX to a buddy, so I'll have to stick to that

As long as NYY / PHI aren't in it, I'll be happy

interesting.. TB getting no world series love and Cincinnati getting no love what so ever..

What I'd like to see - '91 world series rematch - Twins over Braves..

What I think I'll see - Rays over Giants.
