ALWCS: The Wildcard is going to be a 1-game play-in, as we have seen traditionally. In this ALWCS, we will see the Oakland A's (4) V the Boston Red Sox(5) excellent matchup. I would fully expect to see Sean Manea v Chris Sale in this matchup while both teams are good. Bob Melvin is one of the most excellent game managers we have seen, he has a great pen and a great mind to win games. Oakland advances.

ALDS: In round two, we will see the 1-seed Chicago White Sox vs. the wildcard winning Oakland A's. The ALDS is a five-game series in which both teams usually go with a 3-man rotation. I love the Oakland A's, and if they didn't have to match up against the White Sox, I would advance them quickly. However, the White Sox has too many bats and too good of a pen. White Sox in 4.

-The second matchup in the ALDS will see the 2-seed Houston Astros vs. the 3-seed Tampa Bay Rays. I think this is a fantastic matchup on paper. The Astros have a great offense but minor pitching. At the same time, the Rays have all the pitching and depth and probably the year's manager again in Kevin Cash. Rays in 5.

ALCS: The ALCS is the best of seven.

We will see the 3-seed Tampa Bay Rays v the 1-seed Chicago White Sox. Let's break down this matchup just a little deeper.

Rotation- Tampa Bay

Bull Pen- White Sox

Defense- Tampa Bay

Outfielders- White Sox

Infielders- Tampa Bay

Difference Makers: The difference for the Ray's is Kevin Cash and how well he plays games and how he manipulates his lineup and his personnel on a game-game basis. The difference for the White Sox is Tony La Russa and how he plays coming off a five-game series. I don't think the White Sox have enough starting pitching to truly get them past the scrappy Rays, which is why I think the Rays can take this series in 6 and advance yet again to the World Series.
