Unfounded predictions

I'm taking the Brewers over the Nats and the Ray's over the A's in the wildcards.

Then I'll take the Yankees, Braves, Dodgers and Astros in the DS making the wildcard games meaningless.

Then I think Yankees over Astros and Dodgers over Braves, though those both are far from locks. They should be good series both.

Finally I'm taking the Dodgers to finally win the WS, though in my heart I think it's likely the Yankees are looking at another ring.

As a Yankee fan I am more worried about the Astros then any other team. I feel like the Yanks match up to the Dodgers very well. But first, need to beat the Twins yet again.

I really don't see a team beating the Astros in a 5- or 7-game series, they'd really have to put on an amazing display both offensively and on pitching. They're just so ridiculously stacked this year. Greinke is their 3rd starter?!

Astros are definitely the team to beat. Nobody comes close to their pitching. If anyone can, it's the Yankees with that bullpen and those bats. Losing German was huge, though.

Personally, I'd love to see Yankees-Dodgers.

The A's, in the middle of September, in Houston, took 3 of 4 from the Astros. Including wins over Verlander and Miley. I don't know if Miley even makes the postseason squad, he's been so bad this last month. It's hard to see Verlander or Cole, or even Greinke now, pitching much better than this. The bullpen can be pretty shaky though. There isn't a Rivera in the Astros pen, but there are a lot of decent pitchers.

I don't think any team will be a favorite over the Astros in any series they'll face this year, but the point is, in a short series, anything can happen. Ask the 90's Braves, or that 2001 Mariners team with 116 wins.

What an insane series that was. Astros blank the As 15-0 in the first game, then lose 21-7 the next day! Like I said - it would have to be an incredible display to beat them. And I like the As a lot this year - they're a dark horse pennant champ for me.

They're a great team. Just not enough pitching, I think. I want the Astros facing Tampa much more than I want them to see Oakland.

I can't think of another pitcher imploding as bad in September as Wade Miley. He was until then the legit #3 on the club, even after they traded for Greinke. Now, it's an almost Steve Sax or Chuck Knoblauch style inability to perform his job. I mean he went from a 3.00 ERA guy to a guy who gives up 3 and more runs without recording an out. He's run out of gas in August and September before, but not to this degree.

The Astros were stacked last year, too. You just never know. They're my pick too, but I would never bet anything on them - or any other team - I could not afford to lose.

My default choice is always whatever team has the best three starting pitchers because you can ride those guys way, way harder in the playoffs than in the regular season; an ace pitcher becomes far more valuable just because you can use him so much more. That clearly favors Houston this year.

Anyway MLB has a bracket challenge this year and it''s free to enter; the tie breakers are things like "guess the World Series MVP" and such. For the hell of it I picked LA to beat Houston, but my bracket went like this:

WC: A's beat Rays, Nationals beat Brewers
ALDS: Twins beat Yankees, Astros beat A's
NLDS: Dodgers beat Nationals, Braves beat Cardinals
LCS: Dodgers beat Braves, Astros beat Twins
WS: Dodgers beat Astros

Tiebreakers:
WS MVP: Clayton Kershaw
Games It Goes: 7
Total Runs Scored: 55
Total Home Runs In The Series: 18

I think if the Astros get past Oakland (not having to play them would be ideal) they will go all the way. Unless the bullpen goes to hell. Which it has done before, though usually not for more than one or two games. I sure hope they get it done this year because I think the personnel will change after this season, and not in a good way.

From your post to the Baseball Gods' ears.

I'd much rather the Dodgers face the Yankees. The Astros are just vicious.

The sooner the Yankees are out, the better. It's just so boring to have them in. The Twins haven't been to the ALCS since what, 2002? Something like that.

The Twins actually scored more runs than the Astros. I would not count them out.

Since 1960 the Yankees have won nine World Series Championships and all have come with a Democratic president in the White House. Unless the dems can figure out how to install president Pelosi in the next few weeks, the Yankees are screwed.

Any postseason without New York and Boston is a good postseason. Since those don;t happen very often, any postseason in which New York and Boston are eliminated early is a good postseason.

I'm really looking forward to the post-season, because it will be about the first chance all year I've had to watch baseball on a regular basis.

We moved house in the summer, from west coast to east, and the end of the university teaching year in April and May, followed by the hassle and stress of moving and then getting settled in a new place, meant that I didn't have much time to watch, and I didn't bother with my MLBtv subscription this year. I went to a few games back in April and May, but apart from that I've been a bit out of the baseball loop this year.

How have the Orioles been doing?

Like most people who are not Yankee fans, my first wish for the playoffs is for the Yankees to be eliminated as early as possible. I'd also be happy to see the Cardinals gone sooner rather than later. Apart from that, I really don't mind who wins. If the games and the series are exciting, that will be enough for me.

Yankees over Twins in 4

Dodgers over Nats in 4
Braves over Cards in 5

Astros over Yankees in 5
Dodgers over Braves in 6

Astros over Dodgers in 6.

Let's see how wildly wrong these are. I can't do worse than I'm doing picking NFL games.

The Last one ended with Yogi getting fired and the Yanks going through their worst decade following it. 1964 was shortly before I was born, I was born into the Yanks down period, largely coinciding with the Giants absolutely sucking and NYC itself falling apart. We were part of the middle-class flight I guess.

If all playoff series are random, everyone's bracket is 512-to-1. It's unlikely, but not impossible, and so I assume THOUSANDS of people will have a perfect bracket. (This is as opposed to an NCAA bracket, which is 9.2 quintillion to one if all games are random; they aren't, but even if you favor heavy favourites it's trillions to one.) I guess if you make logical choices you might shave it down to 480-to-1 or something but baseball teams are too evenly matched to really narrow it down too much.

So that's why MLB threw in the tiebreakers. Many people will have perfect brackets, but nailing all those tiebreakers? Can't happen.

Given how vague Nostradamus' predictions were, if you're emulating him your picks should read like this:

A mighty cudgel was swung in the Wild Card, but he pitcheth yet.
Yea, the bullpen masters are to be feared in the Division Series.
A might chorus greets the triumphant coastal warriors as they vie for pennants, yet do not count out the hinterland battlers.
For world honors, the best will out.




I have the Dodgers beating the Yankees* in six in the Series.

*I'd love to see the Twins or Astros knock off N.Y., but a team that's overcome so much in terms of injuries and other noise has an edge on the A.L. pennant.

Sorry to bother you folks. I have been watching the entire 2019 season on my computer.

I cannot log in. They are saying I need cable tv to watch the post season. I don't have a TV.

Any solutions?

Thank you.

It's the same rule as during the regular season. With MLB you cannot watch nationally televised games live unless you have cable access to the carrying channel. All of the post-season is nationally televised.

I have had success in the past using a DNS service called Unlocator. Basically, it fools MLB into thinking that your computer is overseas somewhere, like the UK, and allows you to watch postseason games.

It's $5 a month, but you can do it month-to-month and cancel when the season is over, and I think they have a free trial so you can test whether it still works or not. I'd test it for you, but as I said in an earlier post, I didn't subscribe to MLBTV this season.

Sheet....I have the same MLB package I've had for ten years and this is the first year I couldn't watch on my Ipad or phone. Just gave me bullshit about "You haven't bought it from Apple" or some bullshit.

Also PS3 stopped supporting it, so I wasn't happy this year

You should be ashamed to be a part of a bloodbath. Twins will never beat the Yanks....and I hate the Yanks.

Oh...my prediction: Dodgers over Yanks ala 1981

Yeah, their right fielder must be feeling kinda Buckneresque right about now.

Juan Soto has a good chance to be the left-handed, left-fielding Willie Mays. You read it here first.

Maybe so, but the timing of this particular bullpen implosion for Milwaukee was particularly inauspicious.

People are acting like the Twins snuck into the playoffs out of a weak division, with 89 wins or something. The Twins aren't underdogs this year. Yankees fans should be very nervous...home field might be the only thing that saves them.

Current odds for the ALCS champion are Yankees 2/1, Twins 6/1 - 7/1. Here, or here.

So, very brave of you to offer pick em odds and take the Yankees.

Yankees won the regular season series with them 4-2, with one game going into extra innings. How many of the legion of guys who got injured on the Yankees this year, are going to be able to play in the ALDS?

Unfortunately, Jacoby Ellsbury won't be on the postseason roster.

"Plenty" is understating it. They may have won 100 games with even a mediocre bullpen.

The Nets won because of the home field advantage.

They had a lot of support there.

Heh. I stopped watching after the first. Way too many idiotic commercials on TBS; I'll have to find a radio to listen to with the TV on mute when they play the Dodgers.
