Wow! What a night of baseball!
Just remember one thing: While you are ripping into the Red Sox and Braves for two of the biggest choke-jobs in the history of sports, don't forget to give a big thumbs up to the Rays and Cardinals for their amazing finishes.
See, this is why we don't need no stinkin' reality TV. Sports is the original reality TV ... and it's 100 times better than all of the pretenders.
Now where was I? Oh, yeah ...
How about those Red Sox and Braves? What a bunch of freakin' chokers!
And now the postseason predictions:
ALDS: Tigers over Yankees in 5 ... Rays over Rangers in 4. The AL has been weird all season, so why stop now?
NLDS: Phillies over Cardinals in 4 ... Brewers over Diamondbacks in 4. Going with chalk in the NL.
ALCS: Tigers over Rays in 6. Too much Verlander and Cabrera.
NLCS: Phillies over Brewers in 6. Classic matchup of pitching vs. pop, and -- surprise! -- pitching wins.
WORLD SERIES: Phillies over Tigers in 6. The best team prevails ... as long as the bullpen does its job.
