Well the teams are set and it looks like a great post season. ( No Barry Bonds!)

Boston over Minnesota in 6

Anyways...

Anaheim over Boston in 5
New York over Minnesota in 4

St. Louis over LA in 4
Atlanta over Houston in 4

New York over Anaheim in 6
St. Louis over Atlanta in 5

St. Louis over New York in 7

Oh yeah, these are going to be unbiased picks on my part. Who again do I have at the Venetian?
Division Series

Boston vs. Anaheim: Impressive line-up and bullpen for the Angels, I don't really like their starters. Percival has had problems with Boston in the past. Schilling is on, Wakefield seems to be rounding into form, and I'm hoping Martinez actually has a set. Boston in 4.

Twins vs. Yankees: With Santana and Radke, an excellent case can be made for the Twins, especially considering who knows who throws for the Yankees after Game 2. However, the Yankees have shown they can get to the Twins bullpen before, and they'll use the human blimp as a rain delay to screw up the Twins pitchers in the 7th inning at the Stadium. Yankees in 4.

Dodgers vs. Cardinals: Dodgers have been pulling off miracle wins after getting near collapsing, while the Cardinals have coasted for a month. I still don't like the Cardinals pitchers, but I like the Dodgers starters even less. Cardinals in 4.

Braves vs. Astros: Braves rotation is a post-season mystery. Astros always find a way to lose series. Clemens does in Game 5 what he did in Game 7 for the Yankees last year, and Mussina and Grady Little aren't around to bail him out this time. Braves in 5.

LCS

Braves vs. Cardinals: LaRussa's team folded up 3-1 in a LCS to the Braves in '96. However, the Braves don't have near the team they had in '96. Cardinals in 6.

Red Sox vs. Yankees: Since 12:17 A.M. on Friday October 17th, 2003, it has all been pointing to this occurring again. This is where Pettite and Wells being gone comes back to haunt Steinbrenner. It'll probably go 7, but I'm not dumb enough to make a prediction where it's a Russian Roulette game, especially since Boston's biggest weakness is the same one they had last season in big spots. Red Sox in 6, as Wakefield finishes the job.

World Series

Cardinals vs. Red Sox: Both teams have explosive offenses. Red Sox have better pitching. Payback for '46 and '67. Red Sox in 6, as Martinez shows he has genitalia and pitches the game of his life to bring Boston home.

Boston over Anaheim. We played, and trounced them, less than a month ago. Plus, their pitching is a huge question mark. 4 games.

Yankees over Minnesota in five. The Yankee offense has enough of an edge over the Twins to make this competitive, and with Brown seemingly recovering, I don't think their pitching (while weak) is as weak as some have speculated. I wouldn't be surprised to see this go either way, but for now I'll pick the hated Yanks.

LA over StL in five. Partly to be contradictory, partly because inujury is befalling the Cards at exactly the wrong time.

Houston over Atlanta in four. Just a better team, I think.

Boston over NY in 6. I don't see New York advancing past the second round, if they get there. There's not enough pitching depth. Relying on Kevin Brown's back, and the overworked Gordon and Rivera can only take you so far, I think.

Houston over LA in... six. Part guessing, part pessimism over Eric Gagne's seeming fall from the stratosphere.

And Boston over Houston in seven, because I'm a homer and I want Clemens to choke once more on the big stage. Just not for us this time.

this is true, but before that series anaheim held a 4-2 season edge. and in terms of pitching, since sept 1 anaheim holds the edge in ERA at 3.80 to 4.58. also anaheim has the home field advantage.

i like santana to basically single-handedly end the yankees season with 2 wins in that series.

houston in 5

dodgers over st louis in 5 as well

anaheim over minnesota in 5
LA over houston in 6

thats right i said it FREEWAY SERIES!!! with the angels winning it in 13th inning of game 7 by scoring 8 runs in the ninth just to show up the dodgers.

whatever, predicitions dont mean sh** GO ANGELS!!!

It scares me to death to type this, but Boston wins in 6, clinching at Fenway. Three-fourths of the fans storm the field, the rest wait in line to jump to their deaths off the back of the left field bleachers,

The ultimate quandry: your team wins 105 games. With your ace out of the first round, how can you pick them to win it all and NOT sound like a homer?

ALDS
Twins d. Yanks (4)
BoSox d. Angels (4)

NLDS
Astros d. Braves (5)
Cards d. Dodgers (4)

ALCS
BoSox d. Twins (6)

NLCS
Cards d. Astros (7)

100th WS
Cards d. BoSox (7)

Wishful thinking more than predictions, perhaps, but that's the beauty of baseball. WHO THE HELL KNOWS. Tell me again how the Cards pitching doesn't stand up to the Astros (who will own a five game series but struggle more in a seven gamer) and I'll refer to you April when everyone said the same damn thing. 105 > 92.

The putrid thing here is that, unlike most Cards fans, I wanted the Cubs to make the playoffs. Nice story, that team is. Plus, I love waving to the folks in Houston come October, and hoping they're in Fox Viewing Positions to watch the other NL teams play baseball. Dirty shame, those Astros. Maybe they'll win a playoff series for once.

Edit: I'm not very superstitous, but for a second I thought that changing my avatar from Rory Gilmore in a Cardinals cap to Georgia Lass sans headgear caused the Cardinals' poor week. Checking my server, the image was uploaded late Wednesday, well after the Redbirds' recent troubles began. Phew, I am not to blame.

FWIW, MLB.com is giving out a $10,000 prize to person who does the best job guessing the results. If you're making picks and you've got an MLB.com account (or want to take the three minutes it takes to set up one), then you might as well give yourself a chance for cash.

(One point for each correctly picked winner/number of games combo, most points win.)
