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...


Yankees over Tigers in 3. The Yankees handled Detroit easily during the regular season, and that was when the Tigers weren't struggling and the Yankees were dealing with injuries.

Twins over A's in 5. A's continue their grand tradition of first-round choke jobs (four straight from 2000-2003) by winning the first two in Minnesota and losing three in a row.

Mets over Dodgers in 4. The Mets' pitching was fine for a good portion of the season without Pedro, and the Dodgers don't have a quality lefthander to counter the Mets' lineup with.

Padres over Cardinals in 5. Probably the most even matchup of the first round. Home field and the lull St. Louis came into these playoffs on gives San Diego the edge.


Yankees over Twins in 6. The Yankees have had Minnesota's number over the years, and Santana is the only real threat to the Yankees' lineup. He wins two, New York wins the rest.

Mets over Padres in 6. Wells & Embree are the only hopes San Diego has to keep this one close. Mets dominated the season series, which doesn't bode well for San Diego.


Yankees over Mets in 6. It won't be as one-sided as earlier series was, but the Yankees are stocked with quality lefty middle relief that will kill the Mets in crunch time.

(Disclaimer: Picking the Yankees to win is predicate in great part on Randy Johnson being able to perform. Should Johnson come up lame and the Yankees bow out, the balance tilts towards the Mets winning since neither the Twins nor the Tigers have the lefty pitching depth the Yankees do.)

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.

Twins/A's - Twins in 3. They're too hot.

Yankees/Tigers - I remember something I told a friend of mine at the beginning of the season. 'Detroit's looking fantastic, but I think that'll peter out by the end of the season'. Besides, the day Detroit gets a triple crown (I am confident in their basketball and hockey clubs) is the day hell freezes. Besides, I'm a Yankees fan. Yanks in 4.

Padres/Cardinals - Anybody could call this Padres/Pujols and they'd be a hundred percent accurate. Padres in 5, only because Albert carries 2 good games.

Mets/Dodgers - This is too close for me to call. Pedro's been out a fair amount this season, so I don't see him as a factor. I honestly can not assess a pick.

Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.

Yankees over Tigers in 5
Twins over A's in 3

Dodgers over Mets in 3 (Yeah, I said it.)
Padres over Cardinals in 5

Yankees over Twins in 7
Dodgers over Padres in 6 (Hopefully erasing the stigma of the tied finish in the regular season.)

And Dodgers over Yankees in 7, just to see that damn clock on Dodger Blues (May be NSFW, depending on what pic they have up when you click.) finally get reset.

My mom says sigs are bad for you.

Many of us at The W were not-so-good in picking the ROY candidates here: In fact, Big Bad pointed out the lack of "love" for Bailey, and I noted that no one picked Coghlan.
