    Totally inaccurate predictions.

    Dodgers over Cardinals
    Braves over Brewers
    Giants over Dodgers
    Giants over Braves

    Red Sox over Yankees
    Astros over White Sox
    Rays over Red Sox
    Rays over Astros

    Giants over Rays


    The places I could see additonal so called upsets are:

    Cards over Dodgers (1 game)
    Yankees over Red Sox (1 game)
    Dodgers over Giants
    White Sox over Astros

    I want the Brewers to go farther, but they haven't been all that great lately.

    I don't completely dislike the Braves. So there's that.

    2) Brewers
    3) Braves
    4) Dodgers
    5) Cardinals

    The Rays are definitely the "best" of the awful options on the AL side. I would rather eat tar than see the White Sox back in the World Series. The Yankees and Red Sox are about as boring as it gets, and the Astros are cheaters. So, by default, I will be cheering on Tampa...but I certainly won't have any good feelings if they do advance.

    On the NL side, my least favorite NL team is in it (Atlanta). Dodgers fans are horrendous. I could easily say the same thing about the Cardinals...but I have to bite my tongue, as my wife is from St. Louis and they are all Cards fans. I don't have really strong feelings one way or the other for the Giants, but they do have 3 recent titles. While the Brewers are the Twins interleague "rival," I would be just fine with them winning a a title.

    So yes, Rays/Brewers, with Milwaukee taking the title.

    I've been a Giants fan for over 50 years and if it should turn out to be a Bost/San Fran WS I will be at one on those games at Fenway.

    Well, the Yankees walk off the Rays, and then the Red Sox storm back from a 4-run deficit to take a 7-5 lead in the 9th.

    So we'll have Red Sox - Yankees for about the 9 millionth time. : (

    From a Twins' fan's perspective, this is about the worst AL Playoff field as humanly possible.

    Giants up 11-1 top of the 8th.

    Sweet. How many Vikings' Super Bowls can we claim now? We are the absolute kings of losing on a 1/14,000,000 type situation.

    Midway through the games today, and pretty much everyone holding up their end of the bargain to create a 4-team tie for the 2 Wild Card spots...well, almost everyone. : - p

    The Mariners were America's team the year we came back and beat the Yankees (97?).

    Edit: 95.

    I’m not sure what the process actually used to be for four team scenarios, but my guess it was drawing lots to place teams into slots A-D.
    I very vaguely remember this as correct.
