Will and TFD Playoff picks are prominently posted at All-Baseball.com, so I thought I would post my selections. Of course, some games have already been played, so these picks are suspect, but I can promise you that I sent out these selections to friends before Tuesday.
Yankees over Twins in 5- Santana will win both of his games, but unfortunately, the Twins will fall short in the other 3. TFD was right, as Radke is the key to series and he's just not good enough.
Red Sox over Angels in 4- Angels can't get the early leads it needs to win. Bullpens can't cover for mediocre starting pitching in the Playoffs.
Astros over Braves in 4- To be honest, both NL series are dull compared to the AL series. Only the Cardinals have a chance to win against any of the 4 AL representatives.
Cards over Dodgers in 4- Dodgers will win one in LA, but that's it.
Red Sox over Yanks in 6- Oh (insert favorite Deity) do I hope this happens.
Cards over Astros in 5- Oswalt gets only win, as Clemens get lit up by Cards murderous offense.
Red Sox over Cards in 6- It's possible that if the Red Sox get past the Yankees, they will consider it their ultimate hurdle, not focusing enough on the Biggest Prize. I expect Schilling to win his games, as the Cards have no one who can compete with him. Wakefield will be a big factor for the Sox, also.
