So here it is...my playoff predictions....based on my knowledge of baseball and clouded by my personal feelings.
Brewers vs. Phillies: The Phillies will take it 3-1. The Brewers had a good run but they are not a World Series worthy team.
Cubs vs. The Dodgers: The Dodgers will take it 3-1. Let's face it... Manny and Joe Torre know how to win while all the Cubs know is how to lose.
Red Sux vs. Angels: I hoping with all of my heart that the Red Sux take it 3-2. Stick with me on this...
White Sox vs. Devil Rays: The Rays will take this one 3-0. The White Sox are lucky to have beat the Twins...which still isn't saying much. If the Yankees or Red Sux were in their division...this whole last minute tie breaker game would not have been necessary.
Phillies vs. Dodgers: I would like to see the Phillies go to the big dance however it benefits the greater good if the Dodgers win 4-3 so we at least get a good series out of it.
Red Sux vs. Devil Rays: The Cinderella story stops here. The Red Sux will take it 4-1.
Red Sux vs. Dodgers: The Dodgers will take it 4-3. Here is how and why...
- Joe Torre...he knows how to win championships and he knows how to beat the Red Sux.
- Financially it maximizes sales throughout the country. A cross-country battle for the World Series, especially these two teams will cause merchandise sales to skyrocket.
- It will be the ultimate Ha-Ha for Nomar and Manny.
Basically...it boils down to the fact that I hate the Red Sux. The world of baseball will be redeemed for me if the Red Sux lose to the Dodgers in the final game of the World Series at the hands of two former Red Sux whom have done better for themselves after having left the Dark Side.
So let's sit back and see how October plays out.
