Phillies, Giants, Yankees, Rangers — World Series Match-ups

2010 World Series

This major league baseball postseason has been bizarre, to say the least. The heavily favored Yankees and Phillies both found themselves down in the League Championship series 3-1, to teams that nobody gave a good shot. The Yankees have since brought it back to 3-2, and the Phillies have an awesome Lincecum versus Halladay game tonight. Can the Yanks and Phils pull off a big comeback? We’ll see. But for the sake of conversation, here are my favorites on all possible World Series matchups.

Yankees vs. Phillies — Yankees in 7 games

Yankees vs. Giants — Yankees in 5 games

Rangers vs. Phillies — Phillies in 7 games

Rangers vs. Giants — Rangers in 6 games

Thoughts? Arguments?

Watch Your Baseball — Weekend Notes!

Yankees Phillies ALCS NLCS

The NLCS and ALCS start this weekend, meaning baseball starts this weekend. Get out there and watch it. Who are your picks? I’m going out on a limb with a Yankees-Phillies World Series prediction — the exact same prediction I made in April.

Also, check out this article — sent to me graciously by Kevin Youkilis. In a nutshell? Derek Jeter and A-Rod make more than the entire Texas Rangers team combined. And the Yankees spent $151 million more this season than the Rangers did. And people dare to call them a well run organization….. Give me a break.

Patriots, Yankees, or Phillies — You Make the Odds

Tim Lincecum 2010 NLCS

We’re keeping it simple today, with the first “You Make the Odds” post in quite a while. What’s more likely to happen — the Patriots beating the Ravens on Sunday, the Yankees losing the ALCS to the Rangers, or the Phillies losing the NLCS to the Giants? I’m going to say the Patriots have a 20% chance of winning — Baltimore’s defense should have no problem getting to Tom Brady, and their running attack will eat the Patriots alive. The Yankees have a 30% chance of losing — they need to close this one out early so they don’t have to face Cliff Lee twice or when he’s well rested. The Phillies have a 25% chance of losing — just because the Giants have some pitching and well, they are the Phillies.  In other words, I guess these are all pretty heavily favored contests, although I give the Yankees the best chance of losing — though not by much.

What do you think? Back your suggestions up.
