More predictions

Despite an 0-for-4 showing in the division series, I'm going to try my hand at picking the League Championship Series.

So here goes some either very in-tune foresight or more picks for you fine people to ridicule:

In the American League, Oakland will win in six games. Both of these teams have strong pitching staffs with young stars in the making. And seeing as how good pitching normally stifles good hitting, look for the A's to edge the Tigers and their inconsistent lineup.

On the National League side, I like the Mets in 6. St. Louis likely won't have ace Chris Carpenter until Game 3 (Game 2 if he goes on three days rest). New York, meanwhile, already handled the Dodgers' pitching staff handily and L.A.'s arms were much more potent than the Cards.

So there you have it, two more picks to try to break the schneid or continue a perfectly imperfect postseason of picks.

Pugh, stop picking baseball games and find another hobby. You're horrible!!!
The Cardinals will beat the Mets, because although NY found a way to win the short first-round series, losing your two of your best starters HAS to catch up with you at some point.
I feel good about my selection considering you're 0-5 including your A's pick.
