Insert "comedy central" joke here.

I think there's an understanding in US sport that the divisional format and playoff structure can throw up unfair quirks. Teams just have to get on with it I guess.

I'd be happy with anyone who hasn't won it ever/for a long time winning it. So basically anyone apart from HOU, ATL LAD and PHI (PHI to a lesser extent).

Wellif I had have tried to predict the winners of the Divisional Round, Id have got three of the four wrong.

Id have gone for Astros over Twins, but would not have predicted the Rangers, Diamondbacks and Phillies.

Ill go for Astros over Rangers and Phillies over Diamondbacks

Best of five series in a sport where only a handful of teams win 5/8 or more of their regular season games and then have to play other teams with winning records are apt to pan out unexpectedly.

All the 100 win teams out. I think we're in anyone but the Astros territory.

World Series is set

Texas Rangers v Arizona Diamondbacks

I'm pretty sure that this is the first match-up where both teams have states in their name, rather than a city.

I hope that the Rangers win, purely because Randy Johnson once gave me a nasty stare when I was a pre-match, on-field guest at a D'Backs home game.

Not unless there's any evening games (UK time).

I used to get up about 6am and watch the games 'as live' (fast forwarding through the ads), but I'll probably just go for MLB.com's 'Condensed Game' option.

I watch hardly any full games these days. In the past decade, I've watched more full games in person than I have on TV.

It seems that the easier it is to watch Baseball, the less I do.

I kind of miss the days when I had to get people in the USA to video games and mail the tapes over to me.

The Texas Rangers win the World Series 4-1
The first title in the 62 year history of the franchise


They played 11 away games in the post-season and won them all.
