of the National League out at home ( way to lob the ball in, juicer), the Padres and Trevor Hoffman's gascan are playing golf or planning hunting/surfing outings....That means the trail to the World Series becomes that much easier for the Cubs this year. They will have a tough matchup with Brandon Webb, but the rest of the Snakes from Phoenix do not scare me or the Cubs Big 3 ( A-So, A-Ram, D. Lee).....so getting past the Snakes will be done in 4-5 games.....
The Phils will take care of the "running out of gas" Rockies...no way they can survive the emotion of the 4plus hour game and come back to beat the Phighting Phillies........Howard tears up the young pitching staff of the Rockies as does Chase Utley.
As for the Sox and Halos, either team could win the whole thing, but it will come down to the pitching and the pick here is with the 3 starters from Boston. Beckett, Dice-K and Schill will overpower and dodge Vlad the Impaler, and will win in 6 games. Lackey could steal 2 games with his "A" game cheese.
As for the Tribe and the Yanks, I wish I could say it was Pronk's time to rule the roost over the much more experienced Bronx Bombers...but this is A-Rod's year and everyone ( in the A.L. is gunning for second place).
That leads to a Sox- Yanks matchup and Phils vs Cubbies.......I like the Sox and Cubs pitching ( although the relief in Chitown could be the Northsiders undoing and cause the so called curse to ruminate further)
Cubs over the Sox, due to the starters of the Red Sox nation getting overworked before the World Series.....
