How about a no New York series?
In early April, I picked Oakland, Cleveland, St. Louis and New York as the teams to make it to baseball's final four. I picked Oakland and St. Louis to advance to the series with St. Louis as the winner.
It might seem far-fetched, but STL already has beat the odds -- 18 of 19 ESPN "experts" picked San Diego to beat STL just a week ago. This evening, the Cards dispatched the Padres in four games.
Watch for Chris Duncan to hit four home runs against the Mets in the LCS.
Despite my April prediction, I'd like to see a rematch of the 1968 World Series, Tigers and Cardinals.
