*I should note that my hope is Indians/Cubs, but I'm afraid Boston is too good for Cleveland right now. And this seems like a year Texas could get back in, either way.

If the Orioles lose, then ill likely be in for a Nationals Blue Jays WS.

 

I honestly dont hate the Blue Jays, as I typically default to Toronto when Buffalo doesnt have a said team( Argos, TFC, Raptors, Marlies(Rochester has one, but blech for them being a primary(huge bandits fan)) or are secondary(leafs).

Only reason I dont like them is because im likely moving to MD/VA soon for teaching and adopted the Orioles as my AL team

From the MLB thread:

Quote

AL Wild Card

Orioles 3-1 Blue Jays

Chris Tillman gives up a run early, but then settles in and shuts the Jays down.  Stroman dominates our offense save for a lone solo shot from Matt Wieters.  The game is 1-1 till the 8th when the O's score 2 runs off of the Jays 'pen.  Britton gets the save.

 

NL Wild Card

Mets 4-5 Giants

Not the result I want to see, but postseason MadBum is a different beast from regular season MadBum, even if the regular season one was pretty darn good too.  Would love to see the Mets pull this one out but I think the Giants will end up taking this one.

 

ALDS

Texas over Baltimore in 4

The O's have been good this year but not good enough.  We struggled against the Rangers earlier in the year and their dominance will show, as they dispatch us in 4 games.

 

Boston over Cleveland in 4

With virtually all of their starting pitching behind Kluber gone, the Indians have little to no chance against the (sigh) juggernaut that has been the Sox this year.  Side prediction: the Indians' only win comes against David Price in game 2.

 

NLDS

Cubs over Giants in 3

The Giants' even year success comes to a screeching halt as they get swept by the powerful Cubs.  Not even MadBum can save them this time.

 

Nats over Dodgers in 5

This will go down to the wire, but behind Max Scherzer's dominance and a powerful offense, the Nats will sneak by a Kershaw-led Dodgers side.

 

ALCS

Boston over Texas in 6

Texas has the players to compete with the Sox, but this seems like Boston's year in the AL.  They will take this one realatively easily.

 

NLCS

Cubs over Nats in 5

Cubs are clearly the better team here.  Scherzer might keep the Nats in it, but with the talent the Cubs have, I can't see them not winning the pennant.

 

World Series

Cubs over Red Sox in 7

I'm picking more with my heart than my head here.  I'd absolutely love to see the Cubs win, but imo the more likely scenario is Boston winning - again.  But I just can't bear to pick them, so I'm going Cubbies here.

 

World Series MVP: Anthony Rizzo, Cubs

I made this. 

 

Thoughts:

- Yes I think the Cubs have the parts to win it all so they will probably be this year's version of the random good team that doesn't show up for the LDS. 

- Giants over Mets because of Bumgarner, but ultimately only have one Madbum start against the Cubs and hitting woes will end #EvenYearDevilMagic

- Nats finally put it together to win a playoff series. Dusty Baker finally figures out that you have to manage differently in the postseason. 

- I picked the Blue Jays over the Orioles because I want to see a rematch of last year's ALDS with the Rangers and Blue Jays

- Red Sox come out of the American League just because baseball is terrible and the Red Sox will be this year's BiT team where a rich kid fanbase gets to experience more fun than they deserve. It'll also mean the stakes for the World Series will be super high.
