MLB Playoff Predictions

Postby ajgnydc722 » Thu Sep 30, 2004 7:24 pm

Just watched Jeff Brantley's playoff predictions on Sportscenter and thought it would be fun to do my own. Here's what I have:

Divisional Series:
New York Yankees defeat Minnesota Twins (4 games)
Boston Red Sox defeat Anaheim Angels (5 games)
St. Louis Cardinals defeat Los Angeles Dodgers (4 games)
Houston Astros defeat Atlanta Braves (5 games)

League Championship Series:
New York Yankees defeat Boston Red Sox (7 games)
St. Louis Cardinals defeat Houston Astros (6 games)

World Series:
New York Yankees defeat St. Louis Cardinals (6 games)

Ok, ok I know it's a homer pick but I truly don't see anyone stopping the Yankees in the postseason because I don't believe in the Red Sox. I also don't forsee anyone beating St. Louis because they are just too good.

I pick the Yankees to win in the 6th game because I'm going to that game. :-)

Let's see who you have getting in the playoffs for the AL West, NL Wildcard, and what they do from there...

ALDS:
Yankees over Twins -- 4 games
A's over Red Sox -- 5 games

NLDS:
Cardinals over Dodgers -- 4 games
Cubs over Braves -- 5 games (If the Cubbies even make it. :-o If not put the 'Stros in there)

ALCS:
A's over Yankees -- 6 games

NLCS:
Cardinals over Braves -- 6 games

WS:
Cardinals over A's -- 7 games

A's finally get past the first round (and the Yankees) to meet my beloved Redbirds, only to come up short in game seven. :-D I'm a homer, I know. I would love to see the A's pitching against the Cards offense, that would be something thats for sure. ;-D

Everybody has the Twins against the Yankees...... but don't the Yanks play Boston, since they finished first, ie: 1st overall plays the wildcard?

Once I know how the matchups work I'll make my predictions...

Not if the team is within their own division.
