2009 MLB Playoffs Pick ‘Em: LCS

The playoffs are in full swing, and sadly, the Red Sox have been eliminated, falling in a shocking three-game sweep at the hands of the Angels. They can break our hearts, but they can’t break our competitive spirits! Not only were a few of us were fooled by the Sox-Angels series, but the Dodgers-Cardinals series especially confused many of the staff writers. How can we predict that Matt Holliday would drop an easy fly ball?

As for the League Championship Series, the staff has pretty much decided the Yankees are going to the World Series (except for George, Pete, and Teddy), and why not. Alex Rodriguez is all of a sudden the team’s most productive player in the clutch. Wait…did I just say that? A-Rod is clutch? This ain’t right.

LCS Rules:

  • Each correct series winner is worth two points.
  • Correctly choosing how long each series will last is worth one point.
  • Correctly choosing the LCS MVP is worth one point.
  • Making any incorrect pick is worth zero points.

And now, without further ado, here are the LCS picks:

  2. David should have two points (from the COL/PHI series going 4 games).

    And speaking of George, Pete, and Teddy, the three to pick the Angels are also the three lowest remaining scores (sorry guys). Perhaps they’re hoping for upset victories to close the point difference on yours truly?

  4. Hey, that’s what you get when you bring a math major on board.

    And to paraphrase Kid Rock, “It ain’t braggin’ if you back it up.” No, but I’m not really that self centered. :)

  7. [...] a fantasy game. This doesn’t work like a baseball or football fantasy game, but rather like a pro sports pick ‘em. You create your account, join a league, and then for an upcoming UFC event, you pick the winners [...]
