    Postseason predictions

    No Reds, but October baseball = awes.

    Feel free to change/augment this if there is another way people prefer to do this. I'm going to pick what I think will happen, not necessarily what I want to...though there's surprisingly not much disparity between the two for me this year. My predictions are in bold.

    ALDS
    Oakland Athletics (93-69) vs. Minnesota Twins (96-66), starts Tuesday at 1 pm
    Minnesota in 5
    Detroit Tigers (95-67) vs. New York Yankees (97-65), starts Tuesday at 8 pm
    New York in 5

    NLDS
    St. Louis Cardinals (83-78) vs. San Diego Padres (88-74), starts Tuesday at 4 pm
    San Diego in 4
    Los Angeles Dodgers (88-74) vs. New York Mets (97-65), starts Wednesday at 4 pm
    Los Angeles in 4

    ALCS
    New York over Minnesota in 7

    NLCS
    San Diego over Los Angeles in 5

    WORLD SERIES
    New York over San Diego in 5

    Didn't realize I thought so poorly of the Mets' chances til now.

    Please predict!

    Thanks for starting this thread on Reds Live so that everyone can participate.

    I'll take Min over Oak in 4, Det over NYY in 5, Min over Det in 6. Assumes Johnson is out for NYY I haven't heard an update on his status. If Johnson Pitches NYY beats Det in 5 and Min beats NYY in 7.

    In the NL SD over STL in 5, LA over the Pedroless mets in 4. LA over Sd in 6.

    In the series Min over LA.

    ALCS MVP Morneau.
    NLCS MVP Nomar.
    WS MVP Johan Santana.

    I could really care less since the Reds aren't in it. I am not even going to watch a playoff game this year and refuse to watch another one until my beloved Reds are back where they belong; however I am glad that the Braves aren't in the postseason this year.

    He is scheduled to pitch the third game against Detroit. if his disc does not improve by then, he will be taken off the postseason roster and replaced with another pitcher, probably karstens.

    I suck at predictions.

    ALCS - Detroit over Minnesota - The Tigers tanked (like the White Sox did last year) at the right time.

    NLCS - Mets over Padres. Mike Piazza is sad.

    WS - First time since '86 - Mets in 6. I think they'll rally around Pedro.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I agree. If the Yankees can't win it all this year with that team, they should probably just stop trying.

    Going into the 2004 post season it looked like it could be one of the most exciting in quite some time. And outside of the actual Series, it was. This looks like it could be one of the most boring post seasons in recent memory. I'll watch simply because I always do, but nothing about this post season seems compelling to me. I'm not that excited about it at all.

    I think the yankees will lose a total of 3 games this post-season. That offensive lineup they have is ridiculous. They have no peer in the post season this year.

    The Yankees lineup is just about as close to a perfectly built machine as you'll ever find. Taking pitches, working the count, taking walks, boosting the OBP, etc. is the Yankee way, and I wouldn't be surprised if they wear down each opposing pitching staff with each series.
