    Hey all you baseball fans!
    The start of October means one thing: Playoffs :D
    I know many of you will be watching your favorite teams this October(who are so lucky that Seattle just missed the playoffs cuz if they did it would be over :D )
    So now that the 8 playoff spots have been decided, let's have a little competition: Predict the playoffs 03
    Here's how it works.
    Put your winners for each of the 4 division series and put a number of games they will win in. Example: Mariners win in 4 games.
    Then put your 2 winners of the League Championship series and finally your World Series winner.
    For each Division Series winner picked correctly is 2 points, championship series 4 points and the world series winner 8 pts.
    For each division series winner picked with the # of games correct gets 1 extra point, League championship series 2 extra points and World series 4 extra points. I will go first:
    Division series:
    Twins in 5, Red Sox in 4, Marlins in 4, Cubs in 5 (almost go Braves, may change before Tuesday.
    LCS: (league championship series)
    Twins in 7, Marlins in 6
    World Series:
    Twins in 7 :clap:
    Now the Division series matchups are:
    AL: Minnesota Twins vs. New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox vs. Oakland Athletics
    NL: Chicago Cubs vs. Atlanta Braves, Florida Marlins vs. San Francisco Giants
    Of course the 2 AL winners face each other and the 2 NL winners face each other.
    First games are Tuesday so get those picks in before that. NO EDITS after the first pitch on Tuesday. The winner becomes the:
    POKEGYM FANTASY BASEBALL CHAMPION FOR THE 2003 PLAYOFFS!
    (and remember, Mariners 04 all the way. ;) )
    EDIT: Forgot to mention, the Division Series (1st round) is a best of 5. The LCS and the World series are a best of 7 for those who didn't know.

    Twins/Yankees - Yankees in 3.
    Red Sox/Athletics - Red Sox in 4.
    Cubs/Braves - Braves in 4.
    Marlins/Giants - Giants in 5.

    Yankees/Red Sox - Red Sox in 7.
    Braves/Giants - Giants in 6.

    Red Sox/Giants - Red Sox in 6.

    but if I had any choice, I would OBVIOUSLY pick Tigers...GO TIGERS! ;)
    If they can beat the twins 4 out of 5, why can't they be in the playoffs? ;)

    Ok, I don't follow baseball, but these are my picks...

    Twins/Yankees- Yanks in 5
    Red Sox/A's-A's in 7
    Cubs/Braves-Cubs in 6
    Marlins/Giants-Marlins in 7

    Yanks over A's in 6
    Cubs over Marlins in 6

    Yanks over Cubs in 4 for the World Series.

    Whoops. Sorry guys, I forgot to mention that the Division Series (1st round) is only a best of 5. The LCS and the World Series are a best of 7.
    Something Else and Captain Obvious please edit your Division Series picks to be out of a best of 5 since you have some picks in 6 or 7 in those series.
    Remember, Division Series Best of 5
    League championship series and World Series are best of 7
    Sorry for the confusion. :)

    Giants > Braves in 6

    A's > Red Sox in 5
    Yanks > Twins in 5

    A's > Yanks in 6

    Giants > A's in 5

    Change all 5's to 3, all 6's to 4, and all 7's to 5 in the first round. That should cover it.

    You could've just edited that post but what you did will work. But don't edit after today so I know you didn't change it. :)

    I'm sorry Bullados but, it wouldn't really be fair to let you in now as the playoffs are well under way with even 1 series done. You can see how you would get an advantage by waiting until all the games are 3-4 games deep.
    However, everyone feel free to post any predictions if you'd like for fun.
    Baseball is exciting whether your playing or not! :clap:

    Today the Yankees unfortunately beat the Twins in 4 and the Cubs won their first playoff series in 95 years by beating the Braves in 5.
    The updated standings after 3 series
    Captain Obviousx1 6pts
    Pidgeotto Trainer 6 pts (Lost World champion)
    RaNd0m 2 pts (Lost World Series runner-up)
    SomethingElse 2 pts (Lost World Series runner-up)
    ToysRUs Kid 2 pts (Lost World Champion)
    Boston vs. Oakland to conclude tomorrow.

    I won't make any predictions, but I really want Boston to break that curse.

    Well they just won a thrilling game 5 against Oakland. For those who missed it:
    Bot 9th, Sox up 4-3, bases loaded, 2 outs. Derek Lowe strikes out Terrance Long I think to send the Sox into the ALCS for an epic battle against the Evil Empire of the Yankees. :D
    The updated standings:
    Pidgeotto Trainer 8 pts :clap: (Lost World Champion)
    Captain Obviousx1 6 pts
    RaNd0m 5 pts (Lost World Series Runner-up)
    SomethingElse 4 pts (Lost World Series Runner-up)
    ToysRUs Kid 2 pts (Lost both World Series participants)
    With ToysRUs Kid losing both World Series participants this is now a 4 person race.
    NLCS starts tomorrow. Cubs vs. Marlins
    ALCS start Wednesday. Yankees vs. Red Sox
    Should be exciting :D

    Anybody thinks baseball is boring should show them the Bosox/A's series. Many heartattacks on both coasts during those games.

    Even though I'm behind, I think I have the best shot to win...the Yanks are usually a lock, and the Cubs just look like they have it this year.
