[quote=SometimesNowhere]With the postseason at hand (well, after the playoff today), what are some predictions for the baseball playoffs.

  Here is mine:   ALCS: New York vs. Anaheim Yankees in 6   NLCS: Los Angeles vs. Philadelphia LA in 7   World Series Yankees in 5   Anyone who knows my predictions (see my predictions about the NBA finals) knows I am always right. Please post your ideas so we can make fun of you...[/quote]   OOPS

Yep...

Right on the money with the Yanks series though, and my World Series prediction stands.

I think Phillies in 6.

  Yankees got a lot handed to them(other teams playing poorly). And Sabbathia was terrible against the Phillies last year.

True about having a lot handed to them, but as the whole saying goes "you have to be good to be lucky" (or something like that).

CC is a different pitcher this year, he knows he doesn't have to single-handedly win games so he can just trust his stuff. Also, the Phillies pitching is not good enough. Sure, Cliff Lee was good this post season, but he's also pitching to NL teams. For most of his career in the AL, he was barely above average.

LOVE WATCHING YANKEES LOSE… This game wasn’t even close…

Way to go Henrybar ! You really went out on a limb and made a prediction prior to the game !

  That is ridiculous. You were obviously following this thread, but you had your skirt wrapped around your forehead so you couldn't stick your neck out ? Come on !

Thank you, Thank you.  I didn’t know it would be quite that scary of ride though

  Hamels doesn't melt down in game three, Lidge doesn't come unhinged in game four, Howard doesn't, inexplicably, go 4 four 23, Manuel pulls Pedro before Godzilla bats in the third in game six, and the outcome could have been very different.   The Yankees won this series, but to me that doesn't make them the better team. From a critical POV, I don't see them as the better team. Just better in this series. The Phillies bullpen was plagued by injuries and two key members of the pitching staff hamels and Lidge were horrible all year. Big gun Brett Myers went down in June adding to the Phillies pitching woes. Still, they got to the World Series with a patchwork pitching staff. And barring the outcome outlined in the first paragraph of this post, put it to a Yankees team that was hitting on all eight cylinders. The Phils are a great team who had a poor series.   Still, I thought the series was great. A "White Paper" on good pitching trumps good hitting. Of course a phillies trophy win would have been better for me.   With a payroll that is about half of what the Yankees have ponied up, the Phillies gave us fans a great season!   Next year!
