My 2010 MLB Postseason Predictions

I see that John Quayle has written his 2010 post-season predictions on the IC main site.

A Rangers-Giants World Series would be fun. I would love to see Tim Lincecum pitch to Josh Hamilton. It's also an interesting match up because when the Giants brought up Buster Posey at the end of June they traded Bengie Molina to the Rangers. Alas, I don't think the Giants will end their five decade plus World Series drought.

AL Predictions


New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins - Yankees in three.

Texas Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Rays - Rays in four.


New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays - Yankees in seven.

ALCS MVP - Robinson Cano, New York Yankees

NL Predictions


Cincinnati Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies - Phillies in four.

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants - Braves in five.

Please note these were my predictions back in March as I correctly predicted all four NL playoff spots.


Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies - Phillies in six.

NLCS MVP - Jayson Werth, Philadelphia Phillies

World Series

So yes there will be a Yankees-Phillies rematch. It would mark the first time two teams have faced each other in consecutive World Series since the Yankees and Dodgers did so in 1977 and 1978.

New York Yankees vs. Philadelphia Phillies - Phillies in seven.

World Series MVP - Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies.

Let the fun begin.
