So my predictions for the postseason thus far have been nothing short of atrocious. If this was a march madness style pool, I’d be destined for last place. I nailed Tampa in 4 exactly but was wrong on every other pick.
So what to do now? Well, I’ve decided to scrap the prediction thing.
I am rooting for a Tampa Bay – Philly World Series. I don’t think it will happen, but if it ends up a Red Sox – Dodgers World Series, I might be forced to leave the country. I thought the Eagles – Patriots Super Bowl back in the day was the worst thing ever, but Red Sox – Dodgers might top it.
On the positive though (at least for me), I think the Rays are going to hang tough against the Red Sox. Their pitching matches up favorably and the Red Sox definitely have some weaknesses.
As for the Phillies – Dodgers… oh my. Have you looked at those teams? How does Joe Torre do it? They are probably the most talented team in the NL, underachieved all year, and now they’re in a position to go to the World Series. Lowe and Billingsley are a great 1-2. Is there any hope that Philly wins the first two games at home? I don’t think so. I think best case the Dodgers take home field away and worst they take a commanding lead heading back to L.A. But hey – I’ve been wrong before.
