Overall 2005 NL Predictions / Playoffs 

First a recap of our 2005 predictions ...

NL East
Florida Marlins
Philadelphia Phillies
Atlanta Braves
New York Mets
Washington Nationals

NL Central
St. Louis Cardinals
Chicago Cubs (WC)
Houston Astros
Pittsburgh Pirates
Milwaukee Brewers
Cincinnati Reds

NL West
San Francisco Giants
San Diego Padres
Los Angeles Dodgers
Arizona Diamondbacks
Colorado Rockies

Playoffs: Cubs, Cards, Marlins and Giants. Not as strong as the AL entries to the post-season sweepstakes, but these are good teams … How do I see the playoffs unfolding? It is a risky pick, siding with the Cubs over the Marlins, but I think that they’ll avenge the ’03 NLCS and get into the ALCS. Any rotation boasting Maddux, Wood and Prior (note, I make this prediction under the assumption the Cubs Big Three are healthy come October) is going to be hard to beat in a best-of-five. As for the Cards, I see them making short work of the Giants and advancing to the 2005 NLCS as they did last year. I think the whole baseball world will hang on the outcome of the Cards-Cubs NLCS, which will be every bit the battle royale last year’s NLCS was (not that anyone fixated on the ALCS noticed). I think that the Cards are a better team than the Cubs, though a healthy rotation for the Cubs could give them the edge. Still, I see the Cards in the World Series for the first time since 1987.

NLDS:
Chicago over Florida, 3-1
St. Louis over San Francisco, 3-0

NLCS:
St. Louis over Chicago, 4-3

MVP: Albert Pujols, Cardinals
Cy Young: Tim Hudson, Braves
Rookie: Ryan Howard, whatever team the Phillies trade him to

World Series: St. Louis over Minnesota, 4-3

Rematch of the '87 series will be a good one. I give the edge to the Cards.

Monday: Season Preview, Part II: Pitching.

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word poster, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
