Re: Playoff predictions?
Dodgers vs. Cubs
The Cubs will find a way to lose, they always do, its pretty simple. Dempster is a solid pitcher and I kick myself everytime I hear the story about how he wanted to stay with the Reds because he felt he owed them something and they wouldn't sign them. He'll be the only bright spot in this series for the Cubs.
The first hundred down, let the second hundred begin now.
Brewers vs. Phillies
Lot of Brewer love flying around and with CC on the hill its no surprise. Problem is the Phils have Brad Lidge, Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, and some dude named Utley who is maybe the best player in baseball.
Phils vs. Dodgers
Manny is a comet flying across the Hollywood sky. He and Torre are enough to get it done.
White Sox vs. Rays
Dewayne Wise is in the Sox lineup. I think that says enough for me. I will be rooting like a fan for Junior Griffey, but he won't get his ring this season either.
Red Sox vs. Angels
The Angels are an enigma perhaps, some say the best, some among the weakest. All I know is they've got John Lackey, K-Rod, and Texieria.
I also like Halos.
Angels vs. Rays
You coulda had Boston and Chicago, major markets. Instead you get Anaheim and Tampa.
Dodgers vs. Rays
Cinderella had to be home before midnight, and this series will linger on well into the night. Still the experience the Dodgers have will rule the day.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
