The October Crystal Ball …

… is usually pretty cloudy. At least for me. But as I mentioned in the last post, I predicted a Yankees sweep over the Twins in my scouting report, so we’ll start there. Pitching kills in the playoffs and, for me, the Yankees have it in this series.

How about the rest of the Division Series? Here’s how I see it breaking down:

Phillies over Rockies in 4
Dodgers over Cardinals in 5
Angels over Red Sox in 5

Then I’ve got the Yankees over the Angels in 7 in the ALCS and the Dodgers over the Phillies in 6 in the NLCS, setting up the Joe Torre Reunion in the World Series. As much as I like Torre, though, he can’t stop this train. Yankees in 6 for the title.

So there you have it. Bet your house on No. 27 coming this fall. Just don’t bet mine.


UPDATE, 10:40 a.m.: Yankees final roster is out: Cervelli, Gaudin and Marte are in. Guzman is out. Not much surprise since the Twins are so lefty-heavy.
