My predictions will be more than a little biased with good old fashioned homerism with a mix of the absurd. But since the postseason never makes sense anyway, this might just work. Ahem:
 Simply beware that the package doesn't include the NLCS (on FOX, IIRC, so only an issue if, like me, you still don't have a digital antenna or whatever it's called)
I've seen this a lot, and I really don't understand why having the first two games at home is such an advantage.
Because if the "lesser" team starts out 2-0, then the "better" team is facing three elimination games. If they're down 2-0 in the first inning of Game Three, they have to consider pulling their starter, burning the bullpen for Games 4 and 5.'

Everyone nervously laughs, thinking this is some kind of gag. But then Teddy runs in to the mound, and dispenses his "head" and uniform to reveal his true identity as STEPHEN STRASBURG! The Yankees immediately appeal to the Umpires and the Commissioner to declare this move illegal, as Strasburg wasn't on the roster. However, as FOX tells Selig how awesome Game 7 of the series would get in the ratings, Selig announces that he is "making a one-time exception" to the roster rules (a member of the Yankee front office is later heard saying \"####### Melky.") As the crowd goes nuts, Teddy/Strasburg proceeds to strike out Cano and Teixeira and then gets A-Rod to fly out. The Nationals win game 6!

Most ironic ending to a team's season ever?
Yankees over Athletics in five: Behind the scenes, Fox begins to panic- if there's a Athletics-Giants World Series, their ratings will plummet to record lows. And what's worse, the Athletics- for all the underdog Moneyball stuff- would be ratings poison. While there is no overt conspiracy, the series is filled with questionable calls and unusual act-of-god style bounces, all of them seemingly breaking to the Yankees side. Even the Athletics' win in Game 3 comes only after a instant replay is needed to show that, yes, Jonny Gomes did hit a home run. The O.Co Coliseum, by the way, is by now completely filled with almost 60,000 people, as the tarps are off and Mount Davis is opened (they've said they will only remove them in case of the World Series, but the demand is enough that they do so early). This causes extreme problems in Game 5, as a furious late-game rally by the Athletics comes up short when a would-be walk-off run is cut down at home by, yes, Derek Jeter (although he does a normal throw this time, not a flip). Replay shows that Coco Crisp was clearly safe. The Yankees then promptly win in the 10th inning when Robinson Cano goes deep ONE PITCH after a ball is called on Balfour on what had been strike three all game. Soriano shuts down the Athletics, but the crowd is restless before the final out, verbally chanting loud obscenities at the Umps, the Yankees and Bud Selig throughout the final frame. Once the final out is made (a pop-out to, of course, Jeter), all hell breaks loose. Trash is thrown on the field, at least one chair lands near the Yankees dugout (Billy Beane has the alibi that he had gone to watch the Instructional League team). The Yankees and the Umpires are escorted from the stadium under police protection. Grant Balfour, in a postgame press conference, introduces the American populace to various Australian phrases that aren't printable.
If any of this #### comes even close to ####### happening, I am going to kill everyone. EVERYONE.
That's an interesting postseason you've got there, Srul. Did the Yankees forfeit the LCS?

Rangers over Orioles
Cardinals over Braves
Yankees over Rangers in 3
Tigers over A's in 5
Nats over Braves
Reds over Giants
In his choices, the NL decided that even though the Cardinals won the game, that nobody wants a repeat of last year, and the league interfere and advance the Braves.
I would enjoy basically any series outcome other than Yanks over St Louis.
