Thought I'd start a thread for playoff discussions.

My bet right now would be Dodgers or Phillies vs Yankees in World Series.

I took the Whitesox over the Cubs last year in my playoff predictions, and they won 1 game combined in the post season. So I should be able to top that...

I'll take the Yankees over the Cardinals in 5

I want to see the Rockies win!!! since they are the only team in the playoffs that doesn't have a ring yet.

I am from NYC, but I am rooting for the Twins. In an era of such wide disparities of salaries, year after year, the Twins manage to put a competitive team on the field sticking to their busines model and keeping their budget down. You have to respect that organization and hopefully, they will win tonight and then surprise some people.

Thumbs up Case's Picks

Okay, folks. Here are my playoff picks for the divisional playoff series.


AMERICAN LEAGUE

Red Sox vs. Angels > Angels in 5

Yankees vs. Twins > Twins in 5


NATIONAL LEAGUE

Rockies vs. Phillies > Phillies in 4

Cardinals vs. Dodgers > Dodgers in 5


And there you are.

And there you are.
and here's my picks for the divisional round

Red Sox-Angles (Sox in 3) I think Lester shuts them down in game #1, and than the doubt will creep in if it hasn't already, and for the 3rd year in a row Sox eliminate the Angles.

Twins-Yanks (Yanks in 5) Bold Pick Case and as much as I would like to agree with you I think the Yanks will prevail here, but it will be a battle

Rockies-Phillies (Philly in 4) - Lee and Hamels take care of games one and two, rather anti-climatic after that.

Dodgers-Cardinals (Cardinals in 4)-
what happened to the Dodger pitching? the two headed monster atop the Cardinal staff take care of business.

I'm going for Rockies over the Phillies in 4.............got tickets for Sat. and Sun. at Coors Field so I don't mind 4 games

I want the Twins to beat the damn Yankees and the Cards to beat the Dodgers, and the Angels to beat the Sox. We'll see though.

GO ROCKIES!!
