Only in a game like Baseball can the two most offensively charges teams and #1 seeds in both leagues get shutdown and eliminated in the first round.
It just goes to show you that no matter how many people pick the favored teams, the games still have to e played and decided on the baseball diamond. With that the Phillies and the Yankees will be watching the Brewers vs. Cardinals and Rangers vs. Tigers with the rest of us...from home.
This wacky season has just gotten wackier. And for the record, even though I have substantial egg on my face for the two series I predicted wrong (Yanks and Rays winning their respective series in 4) and one I got partially right (Brewers in 4) I predicted the most improbable series right on the head: Cardinals over the Phillies in 5.
