First round picks:

Rays in 3
Jays in 3
Mets in 2
Cards in 3
I would have Cards in 2. I can also see Jays-M's going either way.

At least for us here in Wisconsin, pitchers and catchers report in about four months or so...

It also means that the top three single-season home run leaders in the AL have all worn pinstripes (Judge, Ruth, and Maris). I hope Judge's hair isn't falling out in his quest for 62.
His quotes are comfortable. Mantle had 59 also you know... so the top 4
In what year did Mantle hit 59? His highest single season total is 54 in 1961. Ruth hit 59 in 1921 for third place.
For some reason I thought he had a year like that. Oh well.

Giancarlo Stanton hit 59 home runs in 2017, but he was playing for the Marlins at the time so that doesn't count as a Yankee doing it.

I honestly thought Stanton had been with the Yankees for longer than that.

His first year with the Yankees was 2018. He's been there five years now.

While neither the Cubs nor the White Sox will be in the postseason, the Mariners and Dodgers will. I really want to see the Dodgers win the World Series so that they can dedicate it to the memory of Vin Scully because after 111 wins, anything less would be a total letdown.

Yea.  And more than a few pundits are expecting the Bucks to win it all again this season.

Mariners down 8-1 in the 5th and manage to win 10-9.

There will be postseason baseball played in Seattle this year. What a miracle.

Yesterday saw the first ever postseason game to enter the 15th inning scoreless.

Then the Guardians punched their ticket to the ALDS in dramatic fashion.

Could we see a "Miracle in Seattle" just like a "Miracle on Ice"? ;)

My wife is from San Diego, so we're celebrating the Padres' win against the despised Mets. But now come the hard part: who to root for in the NLDS. She's going with the Padres again, and I'm going to pick the Dodgers.

all favorites, so original
I know any amount of upsets are unlikely here. I would love the Astros to be unseated and the Blue Jays are the most likely of the 4 underdogs to pull the upset (notwithstanding who they're facing) from what I know of them. Phillies have a shot at the Braves too for that matter, especially being divisional rivals.

He must mean the Mariners, although they have a very good shot at pulling an upset against the Astros.

My other three picks are the Braves, Mariners and Yankees. (Although I commend the Guardians for a terrific debut season, I don't think that they can get past New York, who happens to have former Cub Anthony Rizzo on its roster.)

I think the Guardians have the highest chance of an upset (though as I type this, the Phillies have gotten off to a hot start in game 1), because the Yankeesí bullpen seems to be a bit iffy due to injuries and Chapman being the turd of a person that he is.
