While the Division Series matchups aren't set in stone yet, they are close enough for me to do a prediction post! Making picks next Wednesday didn't seem cromulent so we're taking a leap of faith and doing them today. DEAL WITH IT.
AL Play-In Game: Oakland over Kansas City. I see both of these teams holding on. The A's are a mess (Fuck you, Moneyball!) but Lester is better than Big Game James Shields. "Big Game" is one of the best nicknames in all of sports by the way.
NL Play-In Game: San Francisco over Pittsburgh. Good job "making the playoffs", Pirates and Royals.
ALDS: Los Angeles Angels over Oakland in 4. Detroit over Baltimore in 5. The A's spent all season proving that they can't beat Mike Trout. That isn't going to change in October. Tigers/O's could be really good. OBVZ the Tigers have better pitching but Buck is so much of a better manager than Assmouth.
NLDS: Washington over San Francisco in 4. Los Angeles over St. Louis in 4. This is pretty simple. The Nats were my preseason pick to win the pennant and Kershaw is better than Wainwright.
ALCS: Detroit over Los Angeles in 6. God, do I hope I'm wrong.
NLCS: Washington over Los Angeles in 7. Fuck you, LA!
World Series: Washington over Detroit in 5. FISTER'S REVENGE!!! The Tigers deserve to get embarrassed in October (again) for fucking around all season long and letting losers hang (again).
Obviously, all of this will change when the Yankees win out behind the STREMPH of the Captain and then win another ring for The Captain but this is where we sit today. I got some Nattitude! RE2PECT.
