Well we have waited….And waited.  But after enduring 162 games (163 for Texas and Tampa Bay), the postseason rosters are finally set.  The self proclaimed 2013 World Series Champion Nationals are nowhere to be found.  This can be blamed solely on Obama and the turmoil he has instilled in Washington.  Obviously it was difficult for the Nationals to truly play under the moniker “Nationals” when our country can’t even stay open. (Thanks a lot Obama!)

But I digress….  The St. Louis Cardinals are the hottest team in baseball, and, based off their post season success, have to be the strong favorites to emerge from the NL.  The Reds and Pirates play this evening in a winner-take-all matchup.  It will be nice to sit back and watch who will get the not so desirable task of opposing the Cardinals in the NLDS.

The other NLDS matchup pairs the Dodgers vs. the Braves.  Both of these teams stumbled into the postseason and it will be interesting to see which team chokes (or swallows) first.  I have a feeling the Braves can outlast LA despite the peril of Clayton Kershaw potentially pitching two games in this series.  Will someone please rebreak Greinke’s collarbone, and kick Puig in the face for good measure?  I could see myself coming around and liking Puig… if only his medallion was just a tad bigger….

My NLCS prediction: Cardinals vs. Atlanta with the Cardinals utilizing home field advantage (which the Braves coughed up in the last weekend) to win the series in 6 games.

AL Prediction: Who cares?  This league continues to make a mockery of MLB with their DH, and the fact they have men actually pose as “managers.”  Billy, the “special” kid down the street, could “manage” a DH aided AL lineup.  Good grief.  If I have to pick: Cleveland (is Wild Thing still the closer?)

Cardinals vs. the Indians in this year’s fall classic!  You can take that to the bank.

    Ouch, it looks like you got at least half of the World Series teams wrong. Hopefully you’re right about the other one. It definitely won’t be an easy road for St. Louis.
