I will admit that picking post season results before the beginning of the season is simply bananas. I don’t know which teams will be hot going into the post season and whether or not that will even matter.
But it is a fun, if insane, ritual, so why not participate?

No, I am not just picking the Giants because it is an even year. I am doing so because I just came to this conclusion:
You do NOT pick against Bruce Bochy in October.
If this comes true and the Giants are putting up big numbers in 2018, admit it, this even number thing will be creepy!
