Im going to say Giants win the WC game (just because they hit Volquez well). The Royals will beat Oakland in the other WC game.

WAS over SF
STL over LAD
LAA over KC
DET over BAL

WAS over STL
DET over LAA

WAS over DET

I know I said the Nats haven't shown the ability to win when people expect it, but they're heading into the postseason hot. Ive changed my tune, because I think they have the best mix of pitching, hitting, and being hot coming in. Plus they own the Giants, so round 1 would be a warmup.

Ultimately STL has that playoff grit, and the Dodgers, along with the mighty Kershaw, have a history of coming up small in the big games.

Nats get some revenge on STL for 2012 and go to their first WS.


Angels are very good. Plus they have Mike Trout, and KC does not.

Detroit has the pitching to trump the Orioles hitting.

Ultimately, in the postseason you need a great rotation, and the Angels without Garrett Richards just don't compare to Detroit in that area.

Washington uses the momentum they came in with and rides a well balanced team to a WS win over a Tigers team who always seem to come up just short.

I could see the Nationals. I just don't know how anyone is stopping LAA in the AL though.

Pitching. Im not afraid of Jered Weaver or Matt Shoemaker in the playoffs. Tigers will be matching with Price and Scherzer.
Wildcard
Pitt over SF
Oak over KC

Division Series
Washington over Pitt
LA over STL

LAA over Oak
Det over Balt

Championship Series

Washington over LA
Detroit over LAA

WS
Detroit over Nats

I think this might be the year that Detroit actually wins it. Hope not though. I would like Washington to win it if Giants or Pirates dont.

All good. Do me a favor and check the last time these teams have met in the playoffs though.
