2014 MLB Postseason: Division Series Predictions

The 2014 MLB Wild Card saw a pair of games that were drastically different. The Royals, in their first postseason appearance since 1985, won an instant classic as they rallied twice to beat the Athletics in 12, 9-8, on Tuesday night. Meanwhile, the Giants dominated the Pirates on Wednesday night as they were advance easily by a 8-0 final. Now the Division Series kicks off this Thursday and the race to the Fall Classic is on. Who will survive their best-of-five series? Here are my predictions.

Kansas City is certainly a great story with that amazing win on Thursday night with some serious small-ball and some seriously bad managing by Ned Yost. But even the best of stories have to come to an end and it's going to be a short series with Anaheim. The Royals are not going to be able to keep up with the potent Angel offense with their small-ball action and without James Shields on the hill every night.

The Tigers had a largely inconsistent regular season once again, this time under rookie manager Brad Ausmus, but with this very deep starting rotation and a strong lineup, this will be a team to watch out for. Baltimore can certainly rake but their inconsistent rotation could hold them back. Detroit will advance.

There may not be a team deeper in both the rotation and in the starting lineup than this Washington ballclub, hence why a ton of folks are thinking they may just win the whole damn thing. Before we get ahead of ourselves, they will have to deal with a feisty Giants team that may not be as deep as usual with their pitching and their offense isn't great. Washington should sail, though, but Frisco can steal one.

This will be a fun series, quite possibly the best of the four. The Cardinals have themselves a pretty good rotation, but the Dodgers are just better as it doesn't hurt to have a guy as otherworldly as Clayton Kershaw. Considering that the Cardinals largely struggled all year to score runs, they will have a lot of pressure on their rotation to keep them in games. Against this Dodgers club, it won't be enough.
