Well, since I picked all four of the AL playoff teams prior to the season (went one for four in the NL), I will bless you with my playoff predictions.

Dodgers over the Cardinals in four. The Cardinals pitching is hella suspect.
Astros over Braves in four. The Braves still suck.

Red Sox over Angels in four.
Yankees over Twins in four.

Astros over Dodgers in five
Red Sox over Yankees in five

Red Sox over Astros in six (at which point I shoot myself in the head)

The Dodgers better do something this year. They better not pull what the Lakers did to me. Do something memorable (Kobe's shot against Portland and Fisher's against San Ann) only to lose in 5 games. Because if they do, it's time to raid McBankrupt's house!

That's the problem, Alou and Sosa blame everyone but themselves. It's horrible. That team needs a real veteran leader. Too bad Sosa isn't going anywhere. Posturing dick.

As I said, they will beat the Cardinals but that is about it. The team just isn't that good.

haven't liked the cubs much since marcus gracious left...but not a lot has changed....sammy still strikes out as much as he hits, can't play outfield for shit, and his peoples still love him.

That is true, but 53 comebacks has to stand for something, not to mention the most in the major league from the 8th inning on. That stands good for when they go against the Astro, if your first round predictions come out because the Astros have a pretty bad bullpen. Worst ERA of any of the NL playoff teams. That may work out to my liking.

Won't matter when Clemens and Oswalt get them to Brad Lidge single-handedly.

Unfortunately for them its not a best 2 out of 3. Randy Johnson and Curt Shilling proved you can do with two superstars but Clemens and Oswalt do not match up to Johnson and Shilling.
