Hopes and Realities for the 2007 playoffs. Feel free to discuss in the comment section.
NL: Phillies over Rockies; Cubs over D-Backs. Cubs over Phillies.
AL: Indians over Yankees; Angels over Red Sox. Indians over Angels.
WS: Indians over Cubs in 7.
Give me all 300 pounds of C.C. Sabathia bathed in champagne and as much Grady Sizemore as I can handle. On the man-crush scale, Sizemore > Tulowitzki. I want Cubs fans to continue to endure their championship drought, but I want them to really get their hopes up first. I am an asshole.
Get the realities below.
NL: Phillies over Rockies; Cubs over D-Backs. Phillies over Cubs.
AL: Yankees over Indians; Red Sox over Angels. Yankees over Red Sox.
WS: Yankees over Phillies in 5.
Just typing that out made me ill. But I can’t see anyone stopping the Yanks at this point. Their pitching is good enough (you take some pressure off the staff when you put up 7 runs a game) and they are on a mission right now. Man-crush update: A-Rod > Sizemore. Hate him all you want, he is the best player in baseball. I would let him do dirty things to me. No, I wouldn’t. Yes, I would.
