OFFICIAL SULLY BASEBALL PREDICTIONS FOR 2018 POST SEASON

OXTOVERIt is a tradition as old as time… or at least as old as I am.

I will make my Official Picks for the 2018 Postseason before the first playoff pitch is thrown. And as usual, my prediction usually is a kiss of death… just ask the Cleveland Indians and Washington Nationals who I doomed last year as my World Series picks!

So I SHOULD be picking the Yankees because that will eliminate them out of the gate!

AMERICAN LEAGUE WILD CARD
NEW YORK YANKEES defeat OAKLAND ATHLETICS

NATIONAL LEAGUE WILD CARD
COLORADO ROCKIES defeat CHICAGO CUBS

AMERICAN LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES
BOSTON RED SOX defeat NEW YORK YANKEES, 3 Games to 1
HOUSTON ASTROS defeat CLEVELAND INDIANS, 3 Games to 2

NATIONAL LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES
MILWAUKEE BREWERS defeat COLORADO ROCKIES, 3 Games to 2
LOS ANGELES DODGERS defeat ATLANTA BRAVES, 3 Games to 0

AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
HOUSTON ASTROS defeat BOSTON RED SOX, 4 Games to 2

NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
MILWAUKEE BREWERS defeat LOS ANGELES DODGERS, 4 Games to 0

WORLD SERIES
HOUSTON ASTROS defeat MILWAUKEE BREWERS, 4 Games to 1

So there you have it… I have the Astros repeating as World Champions in a World Series that would have confused a LOT of people a few decades ago. “Wait… the Astros are and AMERICAN League team? The BREWERS are the National League team? WHAT???”

So let’s play ball and see how wrong I actually am!

He wants to know which team should be the next great championship challenge for Theo Epstein after delivering to Red Sox and Cubs fans.

He makes some suggestions. I have a thought of my own.

IMG_0188

This is my favorite part of the year as a baseball fan. It is like Christmas morning every day. Which is one reason it is so frustrating that the Red Sox have decided to coddle domestic abuser Steven Wright and make this month a whole lot less fun.

Keeping priorities straight in this episode of Sully Baseball.

While we are at it, enjoy the NEW In Memoriam video.
