With the White Sox capturing the final playoff spot, time for some playoff predictions:
Phillies over Brewers in 3. Great offense, great bullpen for the Phillies. Lidge has a chance to shine with no Pujols to face this year in the postseason.
Cubs over Dodgers in 5. This will be a very competitive series and it wouldn't surprise me if the Dodgers win. Lowe, Billingsley and Kuroda were solid down the stretch and there are some question marks with Zambrano and Harden.
Angels over Red Sox in 5. The Beckett injury for the Sox is a key factor, and the Angels have owned Boston this year winning 8 of 9.
Rays over White Sox in 4. The rested Rays will have a decided advantage at home for the first 2 games with the White Sox having just used their top 2 starters Mon and Tue. And the Rays get Crawford back just in time for the playoffs.
NLCS: Phillies over Cubs in 6.
ALCS: Angels over Rays in 5.
World Series: Angels over Phillies in 6.
