2011 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round Results

St. Louis improbably defeated Philadelphia to advance to the NLCS; can they do it again? (National Geographic)

The Divisional round is now over, and the big surprise was that St. Louis defeated the mighty Philadelphia Phillies, including Roy Halladay in the deciding Game 5. Detroit also took down the #1 New York Yankees, though that wasn’t a unanimous surprise. In addition, the sheer length of the series took many of us by surprise.

All that brings us down to MLB’s Final Four. No more AL East. No more Philly rotation. The field is suddenly wide open. But that’s for later on in the day when the next round begins, with Detroit visiting Texas. In the meantime, eight out of ten panelists are within two points of each other for the lead, and without the power of the eastern teams left, anything can happen with those standings.

So be sure to stay tuned for the next round of picks, and while you wait, check below to see how the first round went.
