American League

National League

    Wild Card Winners: Houston Astros

    Central Division Champions: St. Louis Cardinals
    Western Division Champions: Los Angeles Dodgers
KC's View:
We think that the Cardinals and the Braves will meet to decide the National league pennant, and that the Yankees and Red Sox will meet yet again to see who goes to the World Series from the American League.

And then…we’ll go out on a limb and say that the Cardinals will face the Red Sox in the 2004 World Series.

And then? Oh, what the hell. Red Sox in seven.

Ya gotta believe.
