WS Roundtable part 4
Predicting post-season matchups is difficult at best (see Yankees vs Tigers, ALDS 2006)
If anyone had a Cards-Tigers World Series at the start of the season, they're lying
In keeping with the unpredictable nature of this Series, I relied on my Dungeons and Dragons training to roll up a result. My two passions - D&D and blogging about baseball... sorry ladies I'm taken.
As overseen by the accounting firm of Cheryl & Liam I devised the following test:
roll 1d6 - even = Detroit, odd = St.Louis
result: 3 - victory for St.Louis!
roll 1d6 again (I can't find my bag of dice, the D&D nerd's nightmare)
1 = sweep, 2-3 = 5 games, 4-5 = 6 games, 6 = 7 games
result: 3 - 5 games
Now to justify the results...
Albert Pujols is the best hitter in baseball, and will dominate this series, aided by a healthy Jim Edmonds and Scott Rolen. Chris Carpenter and a red-hot Jeff Suppan will win their starts, and rookie closer Adam Wainwright's wicked curveball will confound the free-swinging Tigers hitters.
Here's to a home game sweep in the next three games...
