    Well...looks like I should buy a lottery ticket...

    I'm going with:
    Rays over Astros
    Yankees over Twins
    Braves over Cardinals
    Nationals over Dodgers

    I'd love to see the Nats win it all just to be a slap in Harper's face.

    I like the Rays but I just couldn't get there. The Astros are historically deep. From this season; they have two CY candidates, a MVP candidate, and the likely ROY.

    Hell of a game pitched by Glasnow. No shame in giving up a two run shot to a former MVP. Earlier in the game I was amazed that Altuve was able to even make contact on a near 100 MPH fastball down at his feet.

    Fantastic weekend of playoff baseball. Another day of all four division series matchups playing, all with the possibility of being closed out. My take is that the Astros and Yankees close out and that the Cardinals and Nationals extend their series to deciding game fives.

    Ahhh, baseball is being talked about on this thread. I hadn't checked out anything but my Braves thread since the postseason began due to a loss in the family. During all the doom and gloom I've only had the enthusiasm to post in there.

    But time heals all wounds and so does a Braves postseason series lead...which the Braves haven't had since 2001, a world record in fact. So here's my picks

    NLCS: Braves over Dodgers in four games
    ALCS: Astros over Yankees in five games
    World Series: Braves over Astros in four games

    No bias whatsoever
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    A very poor showing by the Braves yesterday, the least interesting playoff game in recent memory. The game was over before the completion of the top of the first, just shocking. The middle of the Braves order had little impact throughout the series and it was really disappointing to see.

    And then the evening game and another disappointing loss for the home crowd. I didn't like the approach by either the Dodgers or the Nationals after pulling their starters. This time it worked for the Nationals bringing in Corbin but for the Dodgers to pitch Kershaw with the depth they had on the bench was just perplexing. It's great to see the Nationals making it to the championship series and personally I'd like to see them in the World Series.

    Do the Rays shock the Astros today? Regardless, Yankees fans have got to be pleased with the way this is playing out for them. Extra rest for their starters and the ability to set their rotation anyway they choose, along with no extra travel.

    I couldnít be any happier with the results of the Braves/Cardinals and Dodgers/Nationals games.

    Itís literally the best thing ever.

    I had the Rays going into the playoffs as my #3 ranked team, and I still think they are an elite team.... just have the Stros as #1 still, Val Venis is simply amazing. Its unfortunate this can't be the WS matchup, which would easily be possible if HOU stayed in NL.

    Championship Series time!

    I think with the way the Rays played against the Astros, that shifted the advantage this round to the Yankees in this series. With that said, I'll take the Yankees in five games.

    The series between the Cardinals and the Nationals is a toss up to me, but I give the advantage to the Nationals with their rotation advantage. With that said, I'll take the Nationals in seven.

    Looking forward to some great baseball.

    Congratulations to the Nationals and their fans, they will have their hands full with either the Astros or the Yankees but I would love to see them win one.

    I must say that the Cardinals played worse than any LCS team in recent memory. Their hitting was atrocious and in the field their play was embarrassing.

    World Series game 1 in the books! Huge pitching matchup and a huge victory for the Nationals. Now let's see if the Nationals can do what the Yankees could not, take the first two games from the home team. Strasburg vs. Verlander should be another instant classic.
