Ah, the playoffs. As a Blue Jays fan, I am once again on the outside looking in from the perspective of emotional interest. (/endbluejayspityparty). But it is tradition to take a stab at picking the teams that will advance to, and ultimately win, the World Series.
I say “take a stab” because I haven’t been right in picking the winner yet when choosing at the beginning of the playoffs. My analysis has usually been misguided and misinformed. Therefore, I’m only picking the teams that will advance without any armchair commentary on my part. My picks (and in # of games, for funsies) are:
AL Wildcard Game: Kansas City over Oakland
NL Wildcard Game: Pittsburgh over San Fransisco
AL Divisional Series: Los Angeles Angels over Kansas City (3 games); Detroit over Baltimore (4 games)
NL Divisional Series: Washington over Pittsburgh (3 games); Los Angeles Dodgers over St. Louis (4 games)
AL Championship Series: Los Angeles Angels over Detroit (5 games)
NL Championship Series: Los Angeles Dodgers over Washington (7 games)
World Series: Los Angeles Angels over Los Angeles Dodgers (6 games)
Question: Who do you think will win it all?
