Re: 2008 playoff predictions
Wild card playoff - Padres over the Rockies
I'll take the upset. Rocks 5-3
NLDS - Rocks over Phils, 3-1
the hotter of two hot clubs -- some high-scoring games here
NLDS - Cubs over Dbacks, 3-1
Cubs bullpen also tough (I doubt Dempster closes in the postseason). Dbacks aren't ready yet.
ALDS - Red Sox over Angels, 3-2
Vlad isn't healthy, but Angels put a scare into the Sox anyway.
ALDS - Indians over Yanks, 3-2
CC and Carmona and some nice middle relief put the heat on Joba and Rivera, and they crack.
NLCS - Rockies over Cubs, 4-3
So all my NL picks are based on Fogg over Peavy... so?
ALCS - Red Sox over Indians 4-2
depth in the rotation puts Sox over the top
World Series - Red Sox over Rockies 4-1
Yankees -- errr, Red Sox -- expand their empire.
