2019 MLB Postseason
We have completed the Division Series round!
Looking at my predictions made a day before the postseason started, I have been right on some and wrong on others, which is not surprising.
What I got right: Both Wild Card games and both of the American League Division Series.
What I got wrong: Both National League Division Series.
I think the Cardinals can outlast the Nationals in the NLCS, but I think it will be a good and close series that could go 7 games. I still think the Astros have too much pitching for the Yankees to overcome, in addition to home field advantage that proved to be big in the 2017 ALCS. However, the Rays unexpectedly pushing them all the way to a Game 5 does make me a little more hopeful the Yankees can win this time. If my new predictions come true, the Astros will beat the Cardinals in the World Series.
Obviously, watching the Yankees dismantle the Twins with ease was nice to see. I loved seeing 3 of the 4 Division Series going to a Game 5. The Braves-Cardinals DS was one of the best postseason series I’ve ever seen, really classic up until the final game. Game 1 of that series and Game 5 of the Nats-Dodgers series were the two best games in my opinion. It’s easy to forget the Wild Card games already, but the Nationals one was great.
I was very impressed with the Rays not giving up, and with Adam Duvall’s heroics for the Braves.
Of course, Howie Kendrick owns the greatest moment of the postseason so far:
Looking forward to seeing what else happens during this epic 2019 MLB Postseason! 😀 Feel free to comment below your thoughts on the postseason so far, and who you think will win from this point forward!
