I'm somewhat in denial that the Yankees missed the playoffs this year. On the other hand, it's nice not to be as invested as when the 2004 Yankees collapsed against Boston. In the just-completed Dodgers/Cubs series, I rooted for Joe Torre, Lou Piniella, and Ted Lilly, not being a fan of former Yankee Alfonso Soriano or Manny Ramirez.
Several experts thought the Angels would beat the Red Sox this year, but I think Tampa could really do it.
My picks from here on:
NL - Phillies over Brewers, Dodgers over Phillies
AL - Red Sox over Angels, Rays over White Sox, Rays over Red Sox
WS - Dodgers over Rays
