Now that we are in the post-season for ML Baseball, I thought it time to start up the Playoff thread, and keep other discussions on the regular season in the other ML Baseball 2005 thread. Predictions for the first round? Did the Yankees get a worse draw by winning the AL East by having to have the Angels, or are the Chisox back in their 1st half playing form from their performance in the past 2 weeks? Boston needs their pitching to hold up enough to outscore the Chisox, and perhaps the winner of the Angels/Yankee series. Can't imagine anyone wanting to play the Astros at this time (yes, momentum and playing well at the right time does factor into playoff success), but the Braves get them once again this year, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they can avenge last year's NLDS loss to the Astros and meet the Cardinals for a trip to the World Series, but it'll be a tough road.
