MLB Post-Season Pick 'Em, LCS Edition: Holy cow, what a week. All fives series go five games, which is very exciting for television viewers, but incredibly stress-inducing for Post-Season Pick 'Em players, who now have a turnaround time shorter than the amount of silence in a three-man broadcast booth. Games start tonight!

NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

THE PICKS

Pick the winner of each series, and the number of games which said victory would require.

THE JUSTIN VERLANDER IS OKAY I GUESS BONUS PICK

Pick the two pitchers, one from each league, who will have the lowest ERA in his respective Series. Minimum 6 IP.

Pick the player that will have the highest OBP in either Series.

Here, at long last, is the standings table. Thanks so much for your patience.

In the Molina bonus, all teams combined to go 17/24 in stolen cases for a 70.8% percentage.

The Showalter bonus lived up to its name as the AL clobbered the NL in blown saves, 5-2.
