MLB Playoff Preview / Predictions

More than a Game

MLB Postseason Predictions

It took 163 games to see who will be fighting for the MLB World Series.  Tonight the Pirates will play their first playoff game in 21 years but are they really?  If they lose tonight they are done already.  I know baseball is trying to get more teams involved and add excitement for the fans but the Pirates deserve more than one game.  They control their own fate but it will be a huge let down for the MLB to see this team gone with only one game.  Here are the AVS predictions for this years’ Fall Classic race.
