Tampa Bay in 5 (may their stadium implode)
New York in 4 (I don't want to be stabbed for my opinion)
Philadelphia in 5 (Big Red Machine runs into gear-stripping pitchers)
San Francisco in 4 (Only because today is the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi)

Highest OBP for the LDS: Gardner, NYY (Wait! Does LDS mean he has to be a Mormon?)

Most innings by starting pitchers: AL +7 (It's the stupid DH, stupid>

SpoFi MLB post-season MVP: Dr. John for once again setting this up.

Looks like the ground rules for Tropicana Field's catwalks have been changed for the post-season.

I mention this in case it affects your picks.
