So after 162 games the MLB regular season is over and the post season starts tonight. The match-ups for the best-of-five divisional series which start tonight are:
Anaheim Angels v Boston Red Sox
New York Yankees v Cleveland Indians
Colorado Rockies v Philadelphia Phillies
Chicago Cubs v Arizona Diamondbacks
Colorado got in after a tiebreaker playoff against the San Diego Padres. Two terrible calls in the game – the home run that wasn’t given and the play ay home plate when the runner was clearly out yet called safe. They even out though.
All the games will be on NASN and occasionally on five, and there’s lots of preview stuff on MLB’s website.
My predictions? Almost inevitably, it will be the Sox against the Evil Empire on the AL, and I reckon it’ll be the Cubs and Phillies in the NL, unless the curse strikes again.
