2010 MLB Playoff Expert Picks: League Championship Series

Who will step up and be the hero in each LCS? ('A Hero Sits Next Door,' "Family Guy," 5/2/99)

Here we are, at the League Championship Series. Texas won in Tampa three times, the Yankees steamrolled the Twins again, the Phillies took care of business, and the Giants ended Bobby Cox’ career in Atlanta.

Here at SoB, we foresee a match-up of #1 vs #W in the World Series (except for the leader, Pete) of the Phillies and Yankees. Cliff Lee is only going twice for the Rangers, while Halladay is set to go for the Phils at home. The Yankees’ three-man rotation from last year is no more, and Big Time Timmy Jam has a blister. As a result, the Phillies should either win quickly in five, or it won’t matter for Lincecum and they’ll end up winning in seven. Cliff Lee’s truncated influence in the series should help the Yankees move on, unless he’s still that good and the Rangers’ base runners are that aggressive.

Robinson Cano and Roy Halladay are the most favored MVP candidates, with Howard and Utley getting NLCS MVP nods, and Jeter, Sabathia, and Lee himself getting nods in the ALCS, which should be a mid-length series. So how have we all individually foreseen the future? Check below to find out.

Yankees / Rangers Giants / Phillies Total
Name Winner Series Length Series MVP Winner Series Length Series MVP Points
Andrew Yankees 6 Robinson Cano Phillies 5 Roy Halladay 6
Brian Yankees 5 Robinson Cano Phillies 5 Roy Halladay 5
Erikk Yankees 6 Derek Jeter Phillies 5 Roy Halladay 5
John Yankees 7 C.C. Sabathia Phillies 7 Ryan Howard 7
KC Yankees 6 Robinson Cano Phillies 5 Chase Utley 4
Pete Rangers 6 Cliff Lee Phillies 7 Roy Halladay 9
