2014 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.

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 the World Series. Enjoy our picks and check out my Twitter account for updates on the predictions race.

My NLDS Picks: Los Angeles over St. Louis, Washington over San Francisco
Mrs. NoDak Twins Fan: St. Louis over Los Angeles, Washington over Pittsburgh
NLDS Coin Flip: St. Louis over Los Angeles, San Francisco over Washington

My ALCS Pick: Los Angeles over Detroit
Mrs. NoDak Twins Fan: Baltimore over Los Angeles
ALCS Coin Flip: Oakland over Detroit

My NLCS Pick: Washington over Los Angeles
Mrs. NoDak Twins Fan: St. Louis over Washington
NLCS Coin Flip: San Francisco over St. Louis

My World Series Pick:Washington over Los Angeles
Mrs. NoDak Twins Fan: St. Louis over Baltimore
World Series Coin Flip: San Francisco over Oakland

The coin flip got a little daring having two Wild Card participants square off in a Bay Area World Series. Mrs. NoDak Twins Fan picked the Cardinals to win it all for the second year in a row. I picked the two best team's in each league to survive all the way to the end with the Nats winning their first World Series since moving from Montreal.
