NL begins tonight in Arizona. Joe Sheehan, BP:
The Rockies and Diamondbacks are evenly matched teams with comparable strengths and weaknesses, and each has a number of young stars or stars-in-waiting well worth watching. Both swept more experienced opponents in the first round, striking a blow against the notion that experience is a determinant of postseason fate. This is simply a terrific series ahead of us, one that despite the locations —- both teams' home parks are among the better hitters' parks in the game -- could feature more low-scoring games than its AL counterpart. ... Diamondbacks in seven.Rockies in 7.
Red Sox in 6.
And I'm sticking with my months-long assertion that Slügö will be the ALCS MVP.
