It starts tonight with the Brewers vs Nationals for the right to face the Dodgers.

 

My prediction - Astros beat the Braves in 5. Now prove me wrong Yankees

Nationals beat Brewers

 

Dodgers beat Nats in 4

Cards beat Braves in 5

 

Dodgers beat Cards in 6

 

American League

 

A’s beat Rays

 

Astros beat A’s in 3

Twins beat Yankees in 5

 

Astros beat Twins in 5

 

World Series

Astros beat Dodgers in 7

I'm going to the Brewers-Nationals game tonight. My uncle managed to get us tickets for seats near the Brewers' dugout (which is impressive considering he no longer works for the team). I've never been to a playoff game for any league and I honestly don't have much of a rooting interest either.

 

Just hoping for that experience of Baseball in October.

Whatever is the most painful way for the Dodgers to lose is what my prediction is.

Just to get this out if the way:

Cardinals over Yankees in the World Series

 

I'll just go with what I said back in March

Yankees and Cardinals have alternated head-to-head World Series wins over the years, so if they meet this year, I'll hope that pattern holds true. Getting back to .500 is at least 55 years overdue.

Anybody but the drunk driver-honoring, "Christian's day" Cardinals, the Dodgers, or the "tomahawk chop" Braves.

So with the Brewers-Nationals game tonight it marks the second time that there was a playoff meeting between two teams from the same expansion class (granted there is relocation and league swapping in this case). The only other time was the 1986 NLCS between the Mets and Astros.

Not really liking the Brewers' chances tonight but I also didn't like their chances after Yelich went down. Either way, I don't think either of these teams will beat the Dodgers in the NLDS.

Eventually the Nationals, by law of averages, have to win a Win-Or-Go-Home playoff game. 

 

Astros over the Dodgers in 6.

So the Rays get to play a stupid one-game series to see who gets systematically demolished piece-by-piece against the Astros. Fun!

I haven't watched baseball since the M's crashed back to earth.

 

I'm rooting for Yankees/Dodgers because I like those uniforms most.

A's vs. Rays death match. Winner gets a new stadium. Loser folds. 😉

AL:

 

Yankees def. Twins - 3-1

Rays def. Astros - 3-1 (upset!)

 

Yankees def. Rays - 4-3

 

NL:

 

Dodgers def. Nationals - 3-2 (erasing a 2-1 deficit along the way)

Braves def. Cardinals - 3-1

 

Dodgers def. Braves - 4-1

 

Yankees def. Dodgers - 4-1

 

The calculus in the AL changes entirely if the A's win the wild card; the Astros would slice through the A's like a knife through warm butter. Objectively, the Astros go all the way in that scenario. From my biased POV, I'm still going to say the Yankees win it because I don't need to be objective here. The NL is unaffected if the Brewers win tonight other than that the Dodgers will have easier passage into the NLCS.

Nationals took the lead.. Error in RF allows all 3 runs to score!

 

Ouch Brewers.

 

And it is Game Over. Nationals vs Dodgers in the NLDS.

Well, the Expos/Nationals have won when it mattered exactly twice in their history now. Let’s see if they can do it again!

You spelled “relocate” wrong. 🙂

The Nats are the only team in the NL that has the pitching that should worry the Dodgers. 

 

I mean, it won’t, and they’ll still lose. But LA would’ve probably been better off against the Brewers.
