Baseball Nation predicts the playoffs

Pool Photo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

We're not telling you to take these predictions and use them to gamble. But if you were to do such a thing, you'd win an awful lot of money.

Here they are. The Baseball Nation predictions.

All of these predictions were arrived at after hours of study and meditation, with careful analysis going into each pick. They certainly weren't something that everyone spit out after five seconds of thinking in response to a "Hey, wait, we need to get some predictions up" e-mail.

So if some of these predictions turn out wrong -- I mean, it's possible -- make sure you save this page and refer back to it often because your team was totally slighted. It's probably because we hate your team.

Except for the A's. Wow. They're a popular pick. And what happened to the Reds? I'm thinking they have the best chance of making all six of these professional prognosticators look mighty stupid.

Here goes:
