It seems like Seattle's season but all it takes is a bad series and they are out of it. Cleveland has had a lot of playoff experience and I think they can knock off both the Mariners and the Yankees. The NL seems wide open.

Let's not forget about the hot run Oakland has been on. As a Yankee fan, I know for sure that I wouldn't want them facing the A's anywhere in the playoffs. If the playoffs were to start today, I would probably put my money on Seatle, but I certainly wouldn't count out the A's and Yanks in the AL.

Im goin' with the Cardinals. Yeah, Im a fan of them, but I do think they have a chance. That 11 game winning streak sort of influenced my decision a bit, though. :)

CUBS! Now that they're off of their cold streak, they can get back to normal and get that lead back and take it to the series. Seattle does lack experience more than any other team with a good chance of going to the postseason, although their roster is very talented, next year is Seattle's year. Yankees have had their day, and really aren't the greatest thing out there this year, very good still, but I don't think they'll go all that far. Cleveland'll probably make it to the playoffs, and they do have experience, and are probably the world series team for the AL. For the NL, Diamondbacks look good, but I really don't think that in an extremely serious series with heavy pressure on both teams that they can knock off the Cubs. Houston will probably get the wildcard, and with this year's team, they can go far, but I don't think they will. As for the NL east, there really isn't anyone over there that could take the cake IMO.

So there you have it, the reason the Cubs will win the series (hey, it's been almost 100 years, they're due!).

Seattle's got everyone's number right now, Yankees are still the champs (remember Houston Rockets w/Rudy T). If Diamondbacks get a third starter throwing anywhere NEAR the Unit and Schilling, they could win it all...
