The Big Lead MLB Postseason Predictions

Baseball’s postseason is upon us and it’s not lacking in intrigue. Sport’s longest-running curse could be broken with 11 victories. Cleveland could celebrate its second championship within months after waiting five decades for the first. Bryce Harper could finally get a chance to deliver under the brightest lights. The San Francisco Giants could continue their uncanny even-year tradition.

For the 16th straight year, the reigning World Series champion will not repeat. Of the 10 remaining teams, only Boston and San Francisco have won a title since 1993. Title-starved fanbases from coast to coast enter with hope.

Predicting the MLB playoffs is a fool’s errand. But we’ll do it anyway.
