Re: 2008 playoff predictions
Wild card playoff - Rockies over Padres - Pitching, pitching, pitching as someone says above. Well maybe but not in colorado. Padres are so bad offensively that the Rockies win.
NLDS - Phillies over Rockies 3 games to 2. This series would be a slug fest.
NLDS - Dbacks over Cubs 3 games to 1. Brandon Webb.
ALDS - Red Sox over Angels Sweep. I really like the red sox and the way their team is built. Give me a series with Beckett, Schilling, and DiceK and I take the Sox. The Angles may frustrate the Sox but Boston is just too talented.
ALDS - Indians over Yankees 3 games to 1 CC and Carmona are a 1-2 punch that will scare anyone. Don't think the Yankees have enough in the tank to beat the indians.
NLCS - DBacks over Phills 4-2. Did I mention a guy by the name Brandon Webb. 2 starts in a 7 games series spell doom for the Phills.
ALCS Red Sox over Indians 4-1. I like the Indians but the Sox are just a better team.
WS - Red Sox over DBacks 4-3. Red Sox IMO are the best team in baseball. Sure they had a bump in the road but taking the division over the Yankees will give them a boost through out the entire playoffs.
I am a little biased. I was at Fenway last friday and it was an amazing experience. As much as I hate north eastern fans and their belief that sports only exist in the north east, they are passionate baseball fans.
