The Tigers and Rangers are underway, so that means it’s time for the next round of the MLB Pick ‘Em. After the first round, it’s a tight race, so we’re all eager to keep making a push for the lead like Tampa or St. Louis. This time around, everyone was won over by Detroit’s performance […]

2011 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round Results

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 […]

2011 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round

Welcome to the 2011 MLB Playoffs. We were all treated to a very thrilling final day on Wednesday, and it didn’t go too well for the collapsing Red Sox and Braves. As for us here at Sports of Boston (and for the first time in the MLB Pick ‘Em, Sports of New York), it’s time […]

The season is now over, and the Red Sox and Braves both completed epic choke jobs on the season’s final day, giving way to Tampa and St. Louis.

2011 MLB Regular Season Expert Picks

Sports Illustrated thinks Boston will go all the way. But what does Sports of Boston think? That’s what we’re here to find out, as the annual Pick ‘Em has arrived with the new season. And the Red Sox are a popular pick with us as well. In fact, they’re the only unanimous pick to even […]

2010 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: World Series Results

Well, we’re losing our touch picking winners here at SoB, but at least California, a fellow blue state, won out over the Yankees’ next pitcher Cliff Lee. The Giants won the series 4-1, behind Cliff Lee’s first two ever postseason losses in 10 games, now. Congratulations to the Giants; they earned it. Most of use […]

2010 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: World Series

The Yankees and Phillies; the ultimate World Series which will bring MLB untold amounts of money. But instead, it’s down to Frisco and Texas. The Giants are coming with two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum, and the Rangers are counteri ng with Cliff Lee, who has seven wins and one no-decision in his post-season career. […]

2010 MLB Playoff Expert Picks: League Championship Series Results

The World Series is here, and the Yankees aren’t in it. If only the Red Sox were. But that’s neither here nor there. The Giants surprised all of us by tearing into Philadelphia’s ace-loaded staff, and the Yankees surprised most of us by being terrible. Our leader Pete padded his lead by getting the Rangers […]

2010 MLB Playoff Expert Picks: League Championship Series

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) […]

2010 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round Results

Well, that was an exciting first round. The year of the pitcher carried right over into the postseason, thanks to Lincecum, Halladay, and Lee. Lincecum and Halladay are set to engage in the biggest battle of Titans since Zeus and Kronos. But on the downside (for Texas, at least), Cliff Lee going in Game 5 […]

2010 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round

The playoffs are finally here. And the Red Sox aren’t in it. Well, at least the Yankees were relegated to the Wildcard spot, where they haven’t had much success in the past. And the Phillies managed to wind up as the best team around. The Reds and Giants finally made it back in, and we […]

2010 MLB Regular Season Expert Picks Results

What a season. Boston’s defensive strategy turned offensive in a hurry. The ghost of Steinbrenner’s checkbook could only buy a Wildcard birth. The Phillies have pretty much the best starting staff with Halladay and Oswalt in the fold. So where did that get all of us? The Mariners messed up a bunch of us, as […]

2010 MLB Regular Season Expert Picks

With baseball season here at last, it’s time for SoB’s annual MLB Pick ‘Em. After the Yankees won the World Series last year for the first time since 2000 and made it for the first time since 2003, and gave Dennis Leary a stroke in the process, everyone jumped on the Yankees bandwagon, including many […]

2009 MLB Playoffs Pick ‘Em: Results

Congratulations to the New York Yankees. Theo Epstein would do well to quote the governator Arnold Schwarzenegger, and tell the Yankees, “I’ll be back.” Plenty of records were set this October/November. Chase Utley tied Reggie Jackson for most home runs in a World Series (five); Hideki Matsui tied the record for most RBIs in a […]

MLB World Series Picks 2009

Before the Phillies beat the Yankees in Game 1 Wednesday night, Sports of Boston’s best baseball minds submitted their picks. You know I’m telling the truth, as nearly everyone has the Yankees winning their 27th World Series in franchise history. Given the Yankees’ Game 1 loss with CC Sabathia on the mound, that prediction may […]
