Outside of Trader Joe’s, I discuss watching baseball in the west coast, the dull games, why Pete Rose needs to shut his mouth and why everything is pumpkin flavored.

It is a 4 Playoff Games In One Day episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Jose Altuve, Delino Deshields, Jake Diekman, Collin McHugh, Edwin Encarnacion, Kendrys Morales and Chris Young all added to their totals for Who Owns October

SULLY BASEBALL OFFICIAL 2015 POST SEASON PICKS

2015-MLB-Postseason-Logo

Here we go… another year of picking the World Series winner. This is of course an act of mass lunacy. Remember all the people picking the Nationals last year? NOBODY was picking Giants and Royals in 2014.

My preseason picks were pretty dreadful. However my World Series winner pick, the Cardinals, are still alive and well.

Last year I picked the Orioles to beat St. Louis. The year before, I picked the Cardinals over Oakland.

Cardinals fans must hate me because I keep picking their team and they keep falling short. (In 2011, I picked the Phillies and the Cardinals won it.)

So these are not necessarily the results I WANT! I would love to see the Mets and the Pirates meet in the NLCS. And I really don’t want to see the Royals in the World Series again.

These are the picks that I think WILL happen. And naturally they won’t.

So before the games get started in a few hours, here are my official post season picks:

AL WILD CARD:
HOUSTON ASTROS def. NEW YORK YANKEES

NL WILD CARD:
CHICAGO CUBS def. PITTSBURGH PIRATES

AL DIVISION SERIES
KANSAS CITY ROYALS def. HOUSTON ASTROS, 3 games to 1
TORONTO BLUE JAYS def. TEXAS RANGERS, 3 games to 2

NL DIVISION SERIES
ST. LOUIS CARDINALS def. CHICAGO CUBS, 3 games to 2
NEW YORK METS def. LOS ANGELES DODGERS, 3 games to 1

AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
TORONTO BLUE JAYS def. KANSAS CITY ROYALS, 4 games to 0

NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
NEW YORK METS def. ST. LOUIS CARDINALS, 4 games to 3

WORLD SERIES
TORONTO BLUE JAYS def. NEW YORK METS, 4 games to 1

So there you have it. I am picking the Mets to win a game in LA and to have Don Mattingly blow another playoff series. I think a Cubs and Cardinals series will bring more heartbreak to Wrigleyville. I think the Cardinals and the Mets will have a showdown that will go down to the wire. This time, a Mets player might swing at a Wainwright pitch.

I think the Rangers will give the Blue Jays the hardest time while Kansas City makes it back to back ALCS appearances but won’t be able to hold off the Toronto attack.

And while the Mets will play it tough and give New York their first pennant of the decade, the Blue Jays are just too strong.

So if you like to bet, fly to Vegas and put all your money down for a Yankees and Pirates World Series. It is how my picks usually go!

The Astros Magic Number is 138. How much is that real? I don’t know but for young fans this is already the best team they have ever seen.

That and I ponder my place in the universe on episode 919 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Dallas Keuchel, Miguel Cabrera, Josh Collmenter, Ryan Braun, Michael Cuddyer, Trevor Plouffe and Andrew Cashner all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?
