Playoffs:

AL Wild Card – Orioles at Rangers

The Orioles’ bats outlast Texas pitching, survive and advance.

NL Wild Card – Giants at Cardinals

Madison Bumgarner is too much once again, Giants move on.

AL Division Series

Orioles vs. Indians – Baltimore’s great run ends at the hands of Francona’s dominant rotation, Indians in 4.

Astros vs. Red Sox – In a high scoring 5 game series, Red Sox prevail in Fenway.

NL Division Series

Giants vs. Cubs – In this NLDS rematch, the Cubs fight off Cueto in game 1, lose to Bumgarner in game 3, but have enough to clinch the series on the road in game 4.

Dodgers vs. Nationals – And in this rematch, the Nationals finally pull through and win a hard-fought game 5.

AL Conference Series – Red Sox vs. Indians

In a series I’m already looking forward to, the Red Sox get back to the World Series behind Chris Sale and some clutch rookie performances in 6 games.

NL Conference Series – Nationals vs. Cubs

The Nationals’ dream ends short, Cubs sweep to try to repeat as champions.

World Series Prediction: Red Sox beat Cubs in 6 games.
