- The Giants over the Braves: Lowe has been fabulous down the stretch. Lincecum has been fabulous for two months.
- The Rangers over the Bay Rays: Simply don't see the Rays getting enough post season offense to compete with the Rangers who are back to full strength.
- The Yankees over the Twins: Pavano has had some good starts against the Yankees in the past, but he really scuffled coming down the stretch. Pettitte is lefty which is troubling for the Twins and he knows how to win these games.
