Postseason Predictions:

Alright! So we’ve gone through our site’s voting at the divisional level, and here is how the whole playoff picture shakes out:

American League:

  • Boston Red Sox
  • Cleveland Indians
  • Texas Rangers
  • Toronto Blue Jays
  • Houston Astros

National League:

  • New York Mets
  • Chicago Cubs
  • Los Angeles Dodgers
  • St. Louis Cardinals
  • San Francisco Giants

Alright! Not too bad at all.

So instead of trying to predict each round, we just went straight to the ALCS and NLCS. The match-up votes are as follows, with the predicted winner in bold:

ALCS

  • Cleveland Indians (7)
  • Boston Red Sox (4)
  • Toronto Blue Jays (2)
  • New York Yankees (1)
  • Houston Astros (1)
  • Kansas City Royals (1)

This is the Royals last shot with this core of players, as they likely don’t have the money to return everyone. They do have a championship pedigree, and injuries de-railed their 2016 campaign. A solid dark-horse here to get the job done. The Astros were painfully close to eliminating them in 2015, so you have to keep an eye on them as well. However, an Indians vs. Red Sox ALCS is our best bet.

NLCS

  •  San Francisco Giants (6)
  • Chicago Cubs (5)
  • Dodgers (5)

Ahh! The NLCS is narrowed down to three possible teams with the Dodgers and Cubs each receiving a ton of votes. One thing is clear, no matter if the Giants win the division, our writers think they’ll reach the NLCS. The postseason pedigree might just be big enough for the Giants. However, the Dodgers and Cubs are locked at the horns. All three have a really good shot at being there, so we’ll see what happens

So after that? Who wins the World Series? To be honest, we kinda messed up the survey, and didn’t include an option. However in asking those who voted to send me their World Series picks, it became obvious that the leader was the Cubs. So we’ll leave it at that:

Indians vs. Cubs Part II, with the Chicago Cubs winning it all!
