Of my original picks, I correctly identified four postseason teams. The revised picks netted 7 out of 8 with 5 of 8 placements correctly identified. I think that the Sporting News should give me a call. Here are my picks for the first round of the playoffs. (We'll see how good or bad I really am.):
NL Division Series:
NY Mets over the LA Dodgers in 5
St. Louis over the San Diego Padres in 5 (Sentiment clouds my judgment)
AL Division Series
NY Yankees over the Detroit Tigers in 4
Minnesota Twins over the Oakland A's in 5
Coincidently, Rick has picked the exact opposite for all of his winners. There is a lunch riding on this so I hope the Cardinals don't let me down. Play starts today at 2 PM. I told you that fall was the best season.

Quiz Day: What Kind of Friend Are You?
|You Are A Good Friend|
You're always willing to listen
Or lend a shoulder to cry on
You're there through thick and thin
Many people consider you their "best friend"!
Just a little note for everyone, The Little Mermaid is being released on DVD today. If you want this film, I suggest getting it now. Once the Disney vault is closed, they become very expensive on eBay.
