Baseball, anyone?

By C. “PINK” BUNEL

Special to The Winsted Journal

Here are my picks for Major League Baseball’s Division Series games.

American League

Tampa Bay vs. Texas — The first-game matchup between Cliff Lee and David Price should be super. Whoever wins the first game wins this series. The Rangers prevail in five games.

New York vs. Minnesota — The Yanks get the nod in this series for two reasons: the middle of the lineup (Texeira, A-Rod and Cano) and pitching. Yes, I said pitching. C.C. Sabathia is one of baseball’s best big-game pitchers, if not the best. The loss of Justin Morneau is huge for the Twins. The Yankees will win in four games.

National League

Philadelphia vs. Cincinnati — The Phillies come into this series a huge favorite. But the Reds are not going to go down easy and will play loose. However, I’ll stick with the Phillies, 3-1.

San Francisco vs. Atlanta — There will be plenty of people pulling for the Braves and their retiring manager, Bobby Cox. Unfortunately, they run into a Giants team that has outstanding pitching.  In the end, I think the Giants win this series, 3-2.
