KC's View:
I hesitate to do this, because my record is generally pretty awful. But…

If I were going to bet, it would be on the Yankees facing the Cardinals in the World Series. But I have this crazy feeling that it is going to be the Angels vs. the Cardinals.

BTW…Michael Sansolo had a good line from the “timing is everything” department…he shot me an email yesterday noting that the New York Mets had swept the final series of the season for the first time in three years…and if they’d done so in 2008, 2007 or 2006, they would have found themselves in the playoffs.
