  6. Last year's pick was gold (fixed a few things):

    World Series: STL, 7 Each game is won by the home team, Game 5 is the only blowout. Game 6 is won by an 11th-inning John Jay HR.

    Did I say John Jay? I meant Freese. Duh.

    1. Side-prediction:
      Orioles win any games they win by two or fewer runs if in regulation. Lose any games they lose by wide margins.

  21. In case anybody didn't know, the format for this year's LDS is different. The lower-seeded team hosts games 1-2, and the higher-seeded game hosts games 3-4*-5*.
