I have to admit I was elated when I found out the Tigers fell to the wild card yesterday. I know Peter Gammons still loves them, but its hard to see how they are more of a threat than the Twins.
That said, anything can happen in a short series. I think the Yankees will take the first two in the Stadium behind Wang and Moose. That will leave Kenny Rogers pitching for the Tigers postseason lives in game 3. You've got to love that scenario. If the Unit is healthy and pitches well, this could be a sweep. If not, there will be two slugfests in Detroit and I like the Yankee chances in at least one of them.
In the other series, I have a gut feeling that this is Oakland's year to break out of the first round. I realize this makes little sense when they have to go up against Santana but I'm still picking Oakland in 5. In the NL, the Padres will dismantle the reeling Cardinals in 3 and the Mets will survive the Dodgers in 5.
