2012 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round

The Nationals are a surprisingly good upstart team, and now they face the task of dethroning the champs. (http://abcnews.go.com)

The Divisional Round is underway, with a full slate of four best-of-five series to look forward to. And thanks to the elimination of the rule prohibiting teams from the same division from facing off in this round, we get to see the Yankees and Orioles slug it out. We also get to see how Washington and Oakland, two teams not used to playing in October, fare against two good teams (St. Louis and Detroit).

None of the series featured unanimous picks for winners, so there’s plenty of opportunity to make up room. Speaking of which, for this round, successfully picking the winner of each series is worth two points, while picking how many games a series will last is worth one point.

So relax and watch the series with us, and be sure to follow the complete pick sets below.
