Well, everyone else is doing it, so I may as well, too.
First, my division series picks. I'm going with my "fewest errors during the season wins" theory for these. It's worked for me in the past, and it's certainly been better than any other method I've tried, like, say, thinking about it. The number of games? I'll just make something up.
LA Angels (87 errors) over New York Yankees (95) in five.
Chicago White Sox (94) over Boston Red Sox (109) in four.
St. Louis Cardinals (100) over San Diego Padres (109) in three.
Atlanta Braves (86) over Houston Astros (89) in five.
OK, then in the LCS, you reverse it:
White Sox (94) over Angels (87) in six.
Cardinals (100) over Braves (86) in five.
Then back the other direction for the World Series:
White Sox (94) over Cardinals (100) in seven.
There you go. The White Sox. See, if I had given this any thought at all, I would never have picked them. Now I'm going to be right, another curse will be broken.
Which all goes to prove the following...brains: bad. Soylent green...mmm...soylent green.
That only makes sense if by sense you mean, superstitious malarky.
