    I'll take that bet as well.

    Giants take the division this year, more well rounded top to bottom.

They did also beat the Cardinals in the world series, so luck does happen, but it can happen to any team, regardless how good they are.

    So being ok during the regular season gets you to the postseason and who you play gets you to the World Series.

    One strike away from being swept.

    You "can" make it to an LCS on "luck". Rockies fans do not want to hear it, but you had a ton of luck on your side in 07. The Brewers had to win the last game of the season for you to have to force a one game playoff. Holiday's face first slide into home. Yes, it took a good team to capitalize on that luck, but you cannot. Ignore it.

    Twins and Rockies are ok teams at best with good players on their rosters and they'll have to go through some amazing teams to get to the promise land ... I won't say it won't happen cause anything can happen I just highly doubt it

    Rockies VS. Twins World Series!...
    I agree with #1snake for teams to make it, is along shot. The Rox have to go through Philly (or a team that beats them), the Cards, Reds and Giants. The Twins have to face My Sox, the Yanks, and Rangers. So it is a long shot at best.

    My 2011 predictions

    NL West : San Francisco. Not the most powerful lineup but they have amazing pitching and as we've seen Pitching is what wins

    NL Central: Cincinnati Reds. I think they are for real they have good pitching and a good line up Votto and Bruce are still young to lead this team for years

    NL East: Philadelphia Phillies. Best team in the National League hitting fielding and of course pitching i think their only weak spot is their Closer

    NL Wild Card: Colorado Rockies. I think they will finish a game or two out of first behind San Francisco and will make it to the NLCS against the Giants

    AL West : Texas Rangers. Good team in a weak division biggest threat ... Oakland

    AL Central : Minnesota Twins. Good pitching and a decent lineup and anyline up with Joe Mauer is pretty good

    AL East : Boston Red Sox. anyone shocked here ?

    AL Wild Card : Oakland Athletics. The Yankees need pitching and they aren't going to get Lariano From Minnestoa and theres really no free agent arms left the Rays suck and the Angels won't catch Oakland or Texas

    So the Brackets look like

    San Francisco - 3
    Cincinnati - 1

    Colorado - 3
    Philadelphia - 2

    Texas - 2
    Minnesota - 3

    Oakland - 0
    Boston - 3

    San Francisco - 4
    Colorado -2

    Minnesota - 2
    Boston -4

    San Francisco - 0
    Boston - 4

    2011 World Series Champions

    Boston Red Sox
    San Fran's pretty possible. They'll need to prove losing Uribe won't hurt their lineup and Aubery Huff needs to be more consistant. Who else is there in their lineup other than Buster Posey? I like how you have us beating the Phillies tho :thumb:

    I doubt the Sox sweep the Giants, but they should win easily. I say Sox in 5 if that happens

    My 2011 Predictions:

    NL West: Rockies (IMO, the best all around team in the division)

    NL Central: Reds. The Cardinals will be hurt with Wainwright missing the season and Carpenter has injury problems too. I want to see if Grienke can pitch in a hitters park in Milwaukee before I say anything about them.

    NL East - Phillies. The Braves will definitely compete, but the Phillies rotation is just too good.

    Wild Card - Braves. I expect the Giants to compete, but they did lose a power bat in the offseason (Uribe) and Auriila is old and inconsistent. Hitting helps win in the MLB. (See the Seattle Mariners first before you reply to my comment)

    AL West - Rangers. Wouldn't surprise me to see the Athletics win, but Texas is still a very talented team. Even without Cliff Lee.

    AL Central - White Sox. Wouldn't surprise me if the Twins won, but IMO, the Sox are better overall than the Twins. I'll give the Twins the advantage, hitting wise, but the Sox have a very good lineup too, and IMO, Chicago's pitching rotation is better.

    AL East: Red Sox. Gotta acknowledge what they did in the offseason. They have a very talented team. Would surprise me if they DIDN'T win.

    AL Wild Card: Yankees. They're still a great team, but great pitching rotations win ballgames and World Series Titles. Other than CC, who do they got?
