MLB Playoff Predictions

The Chicago Cubs hope they can win their first World Series title since 1908.
Chicago Cubs

Fall baseball fever is in full effect! The 2008 MLB Playoffs officially kicks off today. We got all the previews and predictions for this year's postseason!

Red Sox vs. Angels

This series may be determined by home field advantage. For the year, the Boston Red Sox are just 39-42 on the road. That is good news for the Los Angeles Angels who owned baseball's best record and are looking to win their first World Series since 2002. It won't be easy, because even though the Red Sox struggled at times this season, they are the reigning World Series' champs. They know how to play in pressure situations, so they'll definitely give the Angels a run for their money. But at the same time, they traded away their best player in Manny Ramirez, so the dynamics of the Sox is definitely different this time around.
  • Kidzworld Prediction - Los Angeles in five games.
  • White Sox vs. Rays

    The Tampa Bay Rays came out of nowhere this year to take the AL East. The surprise team out of Florida posted the best home record in MLB baseball since the '98 Yankees. They will take on the Chicago White Sox who had to play a sudden death game against the Minnesota Twins to earn the right to play in the postseason. The Rays' loaded pitching staff of James Shields and Scott Kazmir might be a little too much for the Sox to handle. Can you say sweep?
  • Kidzworld Prediction - Tampa Bay in three games.
  • Dodgers vs. Cubs

    The Los Angeles Dodgers versus the Chicago Cubs is one of the most anticipated match ups of the '08 playoffs. Two teams with great traditions in big media markets. The Cubs have the longest World Series drought of anyone in baseball. 100 years to be exact. If they are going to break that, they will have to get past the multi talented Dodgers. Led by a manager with plenty of experience in Joe Torre, the Dodgers have many offensive weapons like Manny Ramirez and Matt Kemp. It is up to the Cubs' inconsistent pitching staff of Ryan Dempster, Carlos Zambrano and Rich Harden to come through in the clutch. If they don't you will see L.A. move on to round two.

  • Brewers vs. Phillies

    With an early exit from last year's playoffs, you can bet the Philadelphia Phillies are coming into their first round match up with the Milwaukee Brewers with a chip on their shoulder. But if the Phillies are going to get revenge, they'll have to start by slowing down Brewers' slugging star Prince Fielder. The Brewers were able to sneak into the wild card slot and reach the postseason for the first time since 1982. They will definitely have their hands full with Philly's three headed monster in Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard and Chace Utley. While we envision Milwaukee stealing a game or two, it will still be the Phillies who come up on top.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
