Now is the time of year that everyone makes their bold playoff predictions. Who will be a bust? Who will be the Cinderella team? Who will win it all?
The first series will be the Twins/White Sox vs. the Rays. I don’t think it matters who wins in the Twins/White Sox playoff, the Rays are going to win this series. Scott Kazmir and the defense are excellent. The Rays don’t have a tremendous offense but they do have home field advantage and will win this series.
The Red Sox and the Angels I feel is the best series by far. I think this will go 5 games and will have Franky Rodriguez shut the door in the ninth to clinch the series. Don’t get me wrong Bo Sox fans, the Red Sox are an excellent team. The Angels however are better. With the addition of Teixeira the Angels became the best team in all of baseball. Boston will not go down without a fight, but the Angels will prevail.
Next up is the Brew Crew and the Phillies. I am almost positive that C.C. Sabathia will completely overwhelm the Phillies offense and get at least 2 victories in the series. I think this will go at least 4 games. But in the end the Brewers have C.C. Sabathia and Ben Sheets. Oh and don’t forget about that Prince Fielder guy, he isn’t bad either. Brewers take the series in at least 4 games.
The final division series is the Cubs and the Dodgers. I think of this as more of a warm up series for the Cubs. Even with Manny Ramirez, the Dodgers are not very good. They have some pitching. Ok, I lied. They don’t have any. The Cubs happen to have 2 aces. Ryan Dempster is their third guy. He would be the second one on almost any other team. The Cubs have way to much pitching and way to much offense. I’m calling the sweep, 3 games and out for the Dodgers.
