Medlen's about as hot as you can get right now. 2. Atlanta will certainly be focused after last years' collapse led to a Cardinal WS win.)
AL Divisional Round- Detroit over Oakland (Verlander/Scherzer will be too much) AL Divisional Round- Texas over New York (I don't trust anyone other than Sabathia to keep the Rangers offense down)
NL Divisional Round- San Francisco over Cincinnati (Cain/Bumgarner will take advantage of a swing and miss Cincy lineup) NL Divisional Round- Washington over Atlanta (Slight edge to Atlanta's pitching, but Washington, with Davey on the bench will end Chippers' career)
ALCS- Detroit over Texas- Verlander/Scherzer combo is an overwhelming favorite over the Rangers in matchups NLCS- San Francisco over Washington- Going with Cain/Bumgarner combo here. Washington's dream season ends up just short
World Series- Detroit over San Francisco. Both teams are here on the strength of their pitching, but the 3/4 combo of Cabrera/Fielder puts the Tigers over the top.
I got in too late for the wildcards but going forward I see it: Det over Oak Balt over NYY
Det over Bal .............. Wash over STL Cin over SF
Cin over Wash .............. Det over Cin

I'm late too but I would have gone with DET vs SF with SF losing in game 7 when Lincecum blows it in relief
