Is anyone else ready for MLB playoff predictions??
I'm not certain how the brackets are set-up so I will proceed with how I believe it is, if I have it wrong please tell me and I will edit. With that in mind and as the regular season winds down here is how I see things.
Minnesota vs. New York.
winner --- New York. The Yankees just have too much pitching for the Twins and should win easily.
Boston vs. Houston.
winner --- Houston. Injuries have hurt the Red Sox and the Astros are just the better Team.
New York vs. Cleveland.
winner --- Cleveland. The Indians have too much depth and Terry Francona will out-manage Joe Girardi.
Houston vs. Cleveland.
winner --- Cleveland. This one will be good, probably a DogFight between two really good Teams. I give the edge to the Indians because experience and destiny really matter. Cleveland has both in their favor.
Colorado vs. Arizona.
winner --- Arizona. The Diamondbacks are in the same boat as the Indians, they are reaching their peak at seasons end.
Chicago vs. Washington.
winner --- Washington. The Nationals have the pitching edge and that's all that will matter.
Arizona vs. Los Angeles.
winner --- Arizona. Think about it, the Dodgers had a 50 game run where they went 43-7!!!!! That is remarkable. I assumed they would challenge the Chicago Cub/Seattle Mariner record of 116 wins, but they now will struggle to even win 100!!!!! Again, remarkable.
Arizona vs. Washington.
winner --- Arizona. This will be another good series, but I think the offensive edge will go to the Diamondbacks.
Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Clevelad Indians.
winner --- pick 'em, since I think this will be another 7-game Series. The advantage the Indians have is that when they play in Arizona they'll have access to their Spring Training facility.
