Default Appears the World Series is Set

Looks like it is going to be the Phillies vs the Twins!

Me too. Guaranteed win for the Twins (just kidding, Doug).
That would be an interesting matchup. Both teams have some good young pitchers and hitters.

I think the Dodgers will go... any team that can hit 4 solo homeruns in the 9th to stay alive has to have confidence like no other!

Well, it is a bit early to call, but the Twins have started selling playoff tickets already and they will sell out. They might even remove the upper curtain for more capacity (giving an extra 7500+ seats).

I'm going to go with the Tigers winning the AL. I don't think the Twinkies can catch them to win the division and they'll lose to the Yanks as the wild card.

With home field advantage in the first round belonging to the Tigers I doubt the Athletics will pose a big threat to them. With the Tigers at 94-62 and the Yankees at 93-62 right now, it'll be a shoot out this week to see who wins homefield advantage for the second round. My money's on the Tigers though, and I believe that with homefield advantage against the Yankees, they'll take the AL.


The NL is much easier for me to predict. Mets, baby Mets!


Tim.

Pedro martinez is going to miss the first round of the playoffs. Not good for the Mets.

Without Pedro at his best, the Mets will have a tough time winning the first round of the playoffs. They have been hammered recently and they are not playing well.

Phillies Vs. Twins is actually realistic as they are the two hottest teams right now and recent history has shown that the hot team will more than likely win in the postseason.

Houston is pretty hot. I hope they can catch the Cardinals.

I would fear the Astros if they can make it to the post-season. They have won 9 straight and have been hitting, pitching and fielding flawlessly recently.
Wouldn't it be nice to see the Rocket pitch in the Series again?

1/2 game back from the cardinals right now! I hope they can get in, not many people will want to face Oswalt, Clemens, and Pettitte in the playoffs..

I might have to amend my previous prediction of the Mets reaching the WS. Without Pedro and his big-game experience, the Mets' pitching rotation looks just average. But they are way above average on their offense, so we shall see........
