Good afternoon baseball fans. Here is today's open discussion thread to discuss the Major League Baseball playoffs, minor league baseball, the Arizona Fall League, prospects, rookies, and anything else baseball-oriented that you wish to discuss.

Yesterday's playoff predictions did not go particularly well. On the positive side, I predicted that the Royals would defeat the Angels by a 5-2 score. The three-run margin of victory was correct, the Royals defeating the Angels in 11 innings by a 4-1 count. I didn't make a prediction for the Tigers/Orioles game since it was already underway when I made the post yesterday.

The predictions for the National League were completely wrong. I said that the Nationals could defeat the Giants 6-3 and that the Dodgers would defeat the Cardinals. Instead, the Giants beat the Nationals 3-2 and the Cardinals knocked out Clayton Kershaw in a 10-9 slugfest. This brings my post-season prediction record to 3-3.

For tonight, we'll predict that the Nationals pull even with a 6-3 win over the Giants and the Dodgers pull even with the Cardinals 7-5.

What say you?
