2013 MLB Playoff Predictions (Sure to Go Wrong...)

There are plenty of playoff predictions being made across the interwebs over the last couple of days. I like to make things exciting and approach the predictions segment a little bit different. I spend time over-thinking my picks to the point where I don't remember why I went with the team. Then I ask my wife to pick out who she thinks will win. After that, I flip a coin for all of the match-ups to see who ends up king of the Fall Classic.

Last year's results were pretty entertaining and I correctly predicted the Giants winning it all. The coin flip tends to make some upset picks but anything can happen in the crazy postseason. Overall, it is a fun exercise and I will post results at the end of October. Enjoy our picks and check out my Twitter account for updates on the predictions race.
