Re: 2008 playoff predictions
Wild card playoff - Padres over the Rockies
If Francis were pitching, things would be different.
NLDS - Padres over Phillies, 3-2
pitching pitching pitching
NLDS - Diamondbacks over Cubs, 3-1
Arizonia has Brandon Webb and a killer bullpen. The Cubs are...well...the Cubs. The Dbacks may go against all conventional odds, but they managed to put up the best record in the NL.
ALDS - Red Sox over Angels, 3-0
The Red Sox are simply a better team.
ALDS - Yankees over Indians 3-2
This will be close (and I will be rooting for the Tribe) but the Yanks have the offense and a pretty deep rotation. They will get it done.
NLCS - Diamondbacks over Padres 4-3
honestly don't know why, but I like Arizona. It could go either way though.
ALCS - Red Sox over Yankees 4-3
World Series - Red Sox over Diamondbacks 4-1
If it is my choice, though, it would be a Colorado-Cleveland World Series.
