Why Baseball is Best for Playoff Following

*Disclaimer. The article discusses only the top for American sports. As always, Minnesota high school hockey is the best damn tournament, ever.*

Call it what you want. Baseball playoff are, well, spectacular compared to the other playoffs. Don't get me wrong 162 games is a long season. And when you're not in contention it's not a fun October. But there are cities like Kansas City, Tampa Bay that will spend decades of losing season, so not being in the post season for one year isn't so bad.

At the beginning of every major four season friends and I make picks. This has been a tradition for several years. I can proudly say that this year I like most people in the world, did not have the Rockies going to the World Series. But I did have the Indians. Which went against every bone in my being, because after being a MinnE fan I love my Boston sports. It's the Irish in me.

So for the haters here are my football and NHL final picks and who I will pick for NBA.

New England vs. Carolina
San Jose vs. Ottawa
Spurs vs. Boston

Back to baseball. Sure the royally messed it up with the strike. And Bud Selig is a douchebag, but the wildcard and having to have all 25 members on your team step up on different nights if fantastic to watch. I'm a sports lover at heart so as long as the games are interesting I'm sold. But to potentially have Rockies vs. Indians, granted it won't get much hype, but I'm guessing it could be better than any other major four championship.
