Let the games begin

Posted at 12:13 PM on October 3, 2005 by Ben Tesch (1 Comments)

Over the weekend, the matchups were set. In the AL it's the Red Sox versus the White Sox, and the Yankees versus the Angels. The White Sox might now have the pitching to beat the Red Sox, but they haven't won a playoff series in, oh, 88 years. The Angels are fast and scrappy, and even beat the Yankees 6 out of 10 season games to get home field avantage, but then again, it's the Yankees.

In the NL it's the Padres versus the Cardinals, and the Astros versus the Braves. The Cardinals are pretty much solid all around, so I can't say much for the Padres besides their last rites. The Braves are always good (14 straight division titles good), but the Astros have the same number of aces as wins that it takes to get to the next round.

What are your postseason predictions?
