Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals
This may be the most competitive series in the playoffs. Both teams are young, hungry and ready to roll. The Braves are on their way to be special, but the Cardinals are that squad that may not be the most talented on paper, but damn they are resilient. I call them “Team Cockroach” for a reason.
This is gonna go the full five, but until Atlanta actually wins in the playoffs, I gotta go with the OGs from St. Louis.
Prediction: Team Cockroach in 5
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals
This series will get the headlines because both teams are more flashy than the other one. L.A. has the brand and the tradition. Washington has the pitching and the “we did this shit without Bryce Harper” story.
Too bad it will be a little one-sided. The Dodgers are just too strong and will overpower the Nationals.
Prediction: Dodgers in 4
