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.

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.

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 […]

With baseball season here at last, it’s time for SoB’s annual MLB Pick ‘Em.

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.

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 […]
