Alright, Sun Deckers, it's time to for some serious prognostication.
It's getting late so get your crystal balls out and let's have a go at it.

NLDS: Colorado over Philadelphia - Can't slow that Rockies roll.
NLDS: Arizona over Chicago - There's magic in the desert in 2007.

ALDS: Cleveland over New York - I have an Erie feeling about this.
ALDS: LAA over Boston - Vlad is a bad bad man.

NLCS: Arizona over Colorado - The Phoenix rises again.
ALCS: Cleveland over LAA - Hey ho, way to go, Ohio.

WS: Cleveland over Arizona - Cleveland Rocks!!!

PS If enough folks throw down some picks, I will set up an excel spreadsheet. Correct picks will be rewarded as follows: Division Series will be worth one point. Championship Series will be worth two points. World Series will be worth three points. Sounds fair to me. Cutoff will be Thursday morning whenever I get on. I know a couple of games will be played, but what the heck. This got started kind of late and it gives more folks a chance to pick.

NLDS: Phillies over Rocks
NLDS: Cubs over D-Backs

ALDS: Yanks over Injuns
ALDS: LAA over Boston (this will be a great series)

NLCS: Phillies over Cubs (Cubs fans seen blaming a goat... or Bartman)
ALCS: LAA over Yanks

WS: LAA over Phillies

10-03-2007, 01:18 PM
NLDS: Colorado over Philadelphia
NLDS: Arizona over Chicago

ALDS: Yankees over Indians
ALDS: Red Sox over Angels

NLCS: Colorado over Arizona
ALCS: Red Sox over Yankees

World Series: Red Sox over Colorado

10-03-2007, 01:22 PM
NLDS: Rockies over Phils 3-2.
NLDS: Cubs over D-backs 3-1. Unless Webb can pitch 3 times I dont see the D-backs winning that series

ALDS: Indians over Yanks 3-2. Coin flip on my part to make that guess.
ALDS: Boston over LAA 3-2. Beckett wins twice to lead the charge in 5.

NLCS: Rockies over Cubs 4-2
ALCS: Indians over Boston 4-3

WS: Rockies over Boston 4-0. Got to love the Rockies Karma.

10-03-2007, 01:34 PM
NLDS: Phillies over Rox Rocky Mountain let down and the Phil can flat mash the ball
NLDS: Cubs over D'Backs Only prolonging the agony of Cubs fans when they lose in the LCS

ALDS: BoSox over LAA Bullpen rights the ship and starters stay rested
ALDS: Tribe over Yanks No good reason, I just hate NYY

NLCS: Phils over Cubs I'll take the Phillies, but only slightly
ALCS: BoSox over Tribe Too much experience to lose this one

WS: BoSox over Phlls in 7 Ryan Howard strikes out 15 times in the series, but also hits 3 HRs, Phils still lose.

10-03-2007, 02:08 PM

Rockies over Phillies- This should be a high scoring series, but I just like the Rockies more than the Phillies.

Cubs over the Diamondbacks- I can't predict a team that gave up more runs than they scored in the regular season to win in the playoffs.


Rockies over Cubs- The Rockies show that a team in a hitters park can win, as long as they draft and sign talented players. They are the model the Reds are trying to emulate, so I have interest in seeing them win. Plus, the Cubs are cursed, there is no way they make it to the World Series ;).



Indians over the Yankees- The Yankees can't match the 1-2 punch of Sabathia and Carmona.

Redsox over the Angels- The Angels just don't have the hitting to win.


Redsox over the Indians- This would be close, but the Redsox have the superior lineup.

World Series

Redsox over the Rockies- The Redsox pitching gives them the edge.

Well sir, so far the teams I've picked to win are 0-6 :lol:. Of course, it could have something to do with me picking against the homefield advantage in every series. Still, this is why I don't bet on sports games.:bang:

Rockies vs. Arizona in the NLCS goes to the Rockies, they are on fire

Boston vs. Cleveland in the ALCS goes to Boston

WS: Red Sox vs. Rockies should go to the Sox. 1918, 2004, 2007, and many more to come.

10-07-2007, 06:08 PM
Angels 6 outs away from elimination with a 9-0 difference.

10-07-2007, 06:24 PM
3 more outs and then 3 out of 4 series will be sweeps. I don't know if the Indians can do it at Yankee Stadium or not.

10-07-2007, 06:35 PM
2 more outs and the Angels in the outfield are done

10-07-2007, 06:37 PM

Three Down 1 To Go. Go Indians Sweep!

10-08-2007, 12:35 AM
wow, i had the yanks and cubs in the world series, not lookin pretty for me, lol.

10-08-2007, 12:55 AM
My picks are looking pretty good so far: Boston, Arizona and Colorado have all advanced. My pick of NY Yankees is not looking good right now though.

10-09-2007, 10:26 AM
The Division Series for both leagues is in the books and only 1 person prognosticated all four series correctly. Nicely done, Degenerate10! :beerme: There were 32 folks that threw done some picks and the correct picks shook out like thusly:

Indians 16 of 32 - 50%
Red Sox 26 of 32 - 81%
Rockies 15 of 32 - 47%
D'Backs 20 of 32 - 63%

Sun Deck 31 of 52 59.6%
ORG 46 of 76 60.5%
Total 77 of 128 - 60%

10-09-2007, 11:43 AM
sorry guys, my picks messed you over, i had the yanks and cubs in the world series, lol.

10-09-2007, 02:11 PM
Anyone else want to see the Indians 'tea-party' Boston? =)

10-09-2007, 02:40 PM
Boston has an awful lot of good pitching, but I will give Cleveland a chance. I would like to see a team from Ohio make the World series.

10-09-2007, 02:41 PM
screw cleveland, i know two indians fans, and they're both annoying. I only know one Sox fan that's annoying, so Go Sox, lol.

10-22-2007, 12:14 AM
Surprisingly enough, I actually picked the World Series teams. Boston and Colorado have both made it to the World Series, and I will be interested to see if Boston wins the World Series like I predicted. My Crystal Ball did pretty good this year. I did miss on the Yankees,though.
