I know there is still a spot to be determined but I figured I'd start this anyway.

NLDS
Cubs/Dodgers
Lets go Dodgers! I personally don't like the Dodgers, but in this case I have to root for them to keep the 100 years of futility to continue. However, it seems like every time the Dodgers make the LDS they get smoked. So I say Cubs in 4.

Brewers/Phils
Phils have the better offense, but the Brewers have superior starting pitching. Unfortunately, that pitching could be worn down, and I'd take Hamels over a tired CC. So I'll take the team with the better closer. Phils in 4.

ALDS
Rays/AL Central winner
Home field could be the key for the Rays(HA!). All kidding aside, I have to go with the team that is rested and ready. The AL Central winner will probably be more worn, especially if it is the Sox. Both teams had trouble with subpar teams(go Royals!) with the chance to win the division. Rays in 4.

Red Sox/Angels
The best series of the 4. Both teams have the starting pitching and pens, with the Angels slighly better in middle relief, Sox with the better closer(IMO). Becketts status could be key. Offenses are pretty even. I guess I'll take the team with home-field, if only to see Fox execs jumping from windows with no Yanks or Sox in the LCS. Angels in a tough 5.

NLCS
Phils/Cubs-Cubs in 6(ugh)

ALCS
Rays/Angels-Angels in 5

WS
Cubs/Angels-Angels in 7

“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

White Sox over Twins in 1. Thought I'd go ahead and predict it, and the Sox are too hot not to go into the game and win.


Dodgers over Cubs in 5. Torre vs. Piniella in the playoffs? Torre.

Brewers over Phillies in 4. Howard is second in the league in strike-outs, Braun isn't, and as stupid as it sounds I want more Bob Uecker and less Joe Buck (stupid, if only because Buck will be sent to the bigger market games and FOX wouldn't put Uecker on the air).

Angels over Red Sox in 3. ANY WAY BUT FENWAY.

White Sox over Rays in 4. Rays buckle when they step into U.S. Cellular field and see that even with another team in town the ChiSox can sell out a playoff game. AL East teams are supposed to sell out those kinds of things.


Dodgers over Brewers in 6. So-so pitching beats tired pitching. Bob Uecker strangles Joe Buck with piano wire, President Bush pardons him on his last day in office, his popularity skyrockets and is heralded as one of the greatest presidents that ever lived.

White Sox over Angels in 7. Again, Chicago's moving with a head of steam while the Angels heads are just in the clouds.


Dodgers over White Sox in 7. Torre, Mattingly, Garciaparra, and Ramirez say a special thanks to the Red Sox and Yankees for getting them all together for this special championship. Hank Steinbrenner challenges Torre to a fight.


Eh, I know, unrealistic, but I'd love to see it all.

To start with, Sox lose today and Ozzie says the F word - a lot.

Cubs in 4 over the Dodgers
Phils in 3 over the Brewers

Cubs eek out a series win over the Phils to make the Series for the first time in 63 years.

Angels over the Sox in 5. But very close

Rays beat the Twinkies in 4

Somehow, The Rays beat the Angels for the Pennant

Cubs win it and then lose another 100 years straight.

Twins over Chicago

Rays over Twins
Angels over Red Sox

Phillies over Brewers - this is tough, I wish the Brewers would win this one, but CC has a lot to prove in the postseason.
Cubs over Dodgers

Rays over Angels
Cubs over Phillies

Cubs over Rays - I would enjoy this series, regardless of the outcome.

Might as well...

White Sox over Twins

NLDS
Dodgers over Cubs
Brewers over Phillies (Mainly because I desperately want the Dodgers to have home field advantage in the NLCS.)

ALDS
Angels over Red Sox
White Sox over Rays

NLCS
Dodgers over Brewers

ALCS
Angels over White Sox

World(?) Series
Dodgers over Angels in 7 (and one of the lowest rated WS in history)

Though, I'm secretly hoping the Red Sox make it into the WS. Manny vs. his old team for all the marbles would make for some great TV.

As a Cards fan, I would enjoy this series if the Rays, an expansion team of 12(?) years ago beat the Cubs in the series. Heckling my Cub fan friends would never be so enjoyable!

While waiting to find out if coin tosses will replace his not being in the Hall of Fame in Bert Blyleven's bitching about things in life.

AL
Red Sox in 3. I like the pitching match-ups for Boston, and this is a different team than the one that was floundering when the Angels beat them 6 times in July.

White Sox in 4. If I was confident that Percival was at 100%, maybe I'd go another way. Can see Wheeler blowing a game late at home to give the White Sox the momentum and then they ride it through at New Comiskey.

Red Sox in 5 over White Sox. I like the Red Sox pitching over a feast or famine White Sox line-up.

NL

Dodgers in 4. When in doubt, pick against the Cubs.

Phillies in 4. Unless Sabathia is pitching every game this is a tough match-up for Milwaukee, especially the Brewers Bullpen of Doom.

Dodgers in 6 over Phillies. Fans of Philly get to see a team celebrate on their field, as Lidge blows his first game to end the Philly season.

World Series

Red Sox in 6 over Dodgers. Series ends with Manny Ramirez flying out to Jason Bay for the final out, with Manny then jumping into the celebratory pile as he celebrates getting a 3rd World Series ring.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

I've said it before, I'll say it again: Any casual fan of baseball, and any non-casual fan whose horse didn't make it into this race, would have to be out of their mind not to want a Cubs/Rays World Series. And the allure of it is too hard to ignore as far as the picks are concerned.

WILD-CARD ROUND
Rays over White Sox in 3
Angels over Red Sox in 4
Cubs over Dodgers in 3
Brewers over Phillies in 5

CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
Rays over Angels in 5 (yes, 5)
Cubs over Brewers in 6

WORLD SERIES
Cubs over Rays in 7

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

And now that the White Sox are in, I'll weigh in.

ALDS

White Sox over Rays in 5
The Rays have never been under postseason pressure before and I don't think they'll fare as well as people are hoping. The White Sox have major momentum on their side, especially after polishing off the Tigers and Twins just to get in. It'll be a great series, but Ozzie's crew will come out on top.

Angels over Red Sox in 4
After being utterly dominated by the Red Sox over the last five years or so, the Angels are finally ready to strike back. Not only have they pounded the Red Sox in the regular season, but Manny don't live in Boston no more. The Sox will take one in Fenway (against an inconsistent Joe Saunders), but that's all they get. L.A. should win this without much trouble.

NLDS

Dodgers over Cubs in 5
Manny's brought new life to L.A. and I don't like where things with the Cubs are right now. The Cubs can take the first game, but it'll all go to hell when Zambrano gives up another 8 in 3 innings for Game 2. The Dodgers are quietly one of the hottest teams in baseball since the Manny trade and they'll show why when they dust off the NL favorites.

Phillies over Brewers in 3
The Brewers fall back to earth when Sabathia's arm falls off after making all those starts on short rest. Phillies win this easily and Sabathia takes his busted arm to the Bronx to become the New Carl Pavano.

ALCS

Angels over White Sox in 6
I probably should let that "A.J. Pierzynski strike that wasn't" go, since it happened four years ago. What can I say? I'm bitter.

Dodgers over Phillies in 7
This should be a great series, with two good offenses going at it. I think the Dodgers prevail here, as I think their offense beats out Philly's powerhouse offense. It'll be close, though.

WORLD SERIES

Angels over Dodgers in 6
Angels win in a World Series that'll probably never happen again in my lifetime. My life savings will never be the same.

I'm going to try and make picks unbound by the high I'm still on from the Sox vs. Twins game last night.

ALDS: Rays over Sox in 5. Sox suck in domes. Three games are in domes. Oh well, at least we beat the Twins.
Red Sox over Angels in 4. Red Sox are the strongest team in baseball. Angels will be dulled from having clinched division sometime around July 4th.

NLDS: Cubs over Dodgers in 4. Too much pitching, especially with Dempster pitching at home.
Phillies over Brewers in 5. Sabathia can't possibly pitch 3 out of 5 games can he? If not, they lose.

ALCS: Red Sox over Rays in 5. The Rays realize they are the Rays. The Red Sox realize they have a $175 million payroll and play like it.

NLCS: Cubs over Phillies in 6. Fox will kill people to make sure this happens. They won't need to though. Phils just aren't up to Cubs caliber.

WS: Cubs over Red Sox in 7. Rupert Murdoch wins over everyone by making a million billion dollars off this series, as game 7 approaches Super Bowl level ratings. ESPN explodes with joy at being able to cover two of their three favorite things in the world. If Brett Favre could somehow be involved Bristol would explode. Cubs win game 7 in some goofy fashion as they have had the look of a team touched by the gods all year long.

I am sick of hearing about Manny and the Dodgers. Did you know the Cubs have a better record since Aug 1 than the Dodgers? And they weren't playing the NL West!

Phillies over Brewers in 4
CC can't pitch every game!

ALDS

Red Sox over Angels in 5
It's been so long since the Angels played an important game, will they remember how?

Rays over White Sox
Just so we can hear Ozzie cuss some more!
