Let's have a contest to see who can predict the winners of the AL and NL Divisional Series winners. Tell us the winner of each series and, tie breaker, how many games the series will go (remember they are best of 5).
The four series. with my guesses, are:
Unfortunately, no prizes for the winner, but you'll have the admiration of your fellow Banterers, and isn't that worth more than cash? No? Well sorry but that's what you get.
So give us your picks, before the start of the first game, Tigers @ Orioles, at 5:00 Eastern today.
My picks? Tigers in 5, Angels in 4, Nationals in 4 and Dodgers in 4.
There are a few former Blue Jays playing:
Orioles: Kelly Johnson
Tigers: Rajai Davis
Royals: Tim Collins, Jason Frasor, Erik Kratz, Scott Downs, Liam Hendriks and Jayson Nix (though I'd expect that some of them won't make the playoff roster).
Angels: John McDonald
Dodgers: Brandon League
