It’s October and you know what that means, and no, I’m not talking about pumpkin spiced lattes. I am talking about playoff baseball! These playoffs are shaping up to be one of the most exciting and unpredictable playoffs in recent memory. This year was the year of the surprise teams, with the Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, and the Toronto Blue Jays coming to mind. An interesting stat to think about, is that only three of the eight teams in the playoffs were in it last season. Baseball fans are also guaranteed a new champion this season, with the San Francisco Giants missing the playoffs, so I’ll tell you how I think this postseason will shape out.

Royals vs Astros – Royals in 5 games
