Beloved creation, it is the greatest time of the year. Major League Baseball playoffs!!!
Back in early May I took a stab at predicting who would be here in the fall dance for the ultimate title of MLB World Champs.
I predicted the Bold, the actual is [in brackets].
AL East Boston Red Sox [Tampa Bay Rays]
AL Central Kansas City Royals [Chicago White Sox]
AL West Los Angeles Angels
AL Wildcard Oakland Athletics [Boston Red Sox]
NL East Philadelphia Phillies
NL Central St. Louis Cardinals [Chicago Cubs]
NL West Los Angeles Dodgers
NL Wildcard Chicago Cubs [Milwaukee Brewers]
I predicted the Angels, the Phillies, and the Dodgers to win their division. I thought the Bo Sox and the Cubs would be there but the Sox got there via the wildcard and the Cubs won the NL central.
I am very happy to see the Rays there in the mix. I have loved to watch them play this season. They are a very exciting team to watch. You get a great show as they play. I am still hoping for a freeway World Series between the Angels and the Dodgers.
There is hope of a North Sider vs. South Sider series in Chicago. I personally hope that one does not happen. I want the Dodgers to be in and win the World Series against the Angels, but I would settle for the Rays. I just want the Boys in Blue to triumph 20 years after their last run.
If the Dodgers get to the World Series I am going to go. I got to see it. My brother has tickets to the NLCS at Chavez. I am jealous. I hope his happy vegan butt gets ill on the Dodger Dog he will have to consume.
