Yankees vs. Tigers: As tough a series as the Yankees may play, and not just because of Justin Verlander. But if CC Sabathia neutralizes Verlander, and the Yankees force him to throw enough pitches, the Yankees have a deep enough lineup and deep enough bullpen to get through -- barely. Yankees in 5.
Rangers vs. Rays: Absent Cliff Lee, the Rays would have beaten the Rangers in the first round last year. Absent Cliff Lee, they lose to them again in the first round this year. The problem this time is that as good as the Rays rotation is, the Rangers will find a way to score. And the Rays' weak lineup will prevent them from keeping up. Rangers in 5.
Phillies vs. Cardinals: A scouting friend of mine said if the Cardinals had Adam Wainwright, they could beat the Phillies. I'm not sure that's true, but even without Wainwright, the Cardinals have a better chance than you think. They're still not going to win, because the Phillies rotation is just too good. Phillies in 5.
Brewers vs. Diamondbacks: A fascinating series that too few people will watch. And when it's over, the rest of the country will wonder how in the world Arizona won it. Just as we wonder now, how did the Diamondbacks get this far? The Brewers will be done in by poor defense, and by some more Kirk Gibson postseason magic. Diamondbacks in 5.
League Championship Series
Yankees vs. Rangers: The Rangers were the team that cheered up Red Sox fans last October by ousting the Yankees in six games. The Rangers are good enough to do it again, but they won't. Their lefty-dominated rotation will be a challenge, but this time the Yankees will be up for it -- barely. Yankees in 7.
Phillies vs. Diamondbacks: The last time the D-Backs were in Philadelphia, they became the first team ever to rally in the ninth inning for a win over Roy Halladay. So it can be done. And Gibson will talk them into believing it can be done again. This is his time of year. Diamondbacks in 7.
Yankees vs. Diamondbacks: It's Gibson's time of year, but it's also Derek Jeter's time of year. Jeter is playing. Gibson isn't. Advantage: Yankees. Oh, and their lineup is just a touch deeper and more dangerous than Arizona's. Yankees in 7.
