Baseball Playoff Predictions? The postseason starts soon and I'm just wondering who you guys think will turn out to the be the world series champs. We don't officially know which teams are in yet (at least in the NL), but its never too early for predictions. My prediction is that the Twins beat the Mets 4-2. With the best left handed pitcher in the planet , one of the best bullpen in the majors, an offense led by Mauer and Morneau, and momentum, I dont think any team can stop them. My sleeper pick would probably be the Houston Astros. They're only a game and a half behind the cardinals and in their usual late season push.
