Now that all the playoff matchups have been set, it is time
for me to make postseason predictions.
But in keeping true to the spirit of this site, these will be based on
the amount of Canadian (and bonuses for Albertan) content of the playoff
rosters, as well as links to Red Sox players.
Let’s start with the American
League: The wildcard match features the
Texas Rangers who will host the surprising Baltimore Orioles. The O’s don’t have any Canadians or any
former Red Sox players. Texas has BC
native Ryan Dempster as an available arm, as well as former Red Sox Adrian
Beltre and David Murphy in the lineup.
This is an easy pick – Texas will advance to the LDS.
