Wild Card Preview

For the next month, I will be covering the latest in the postseason. First I’ll talk American League. Back in March, during the Pepper Show Prediction Special, I predicted that the Kansas City Royals would win the World Series. Crazy? Yes. Impossible? Not anymore!

The Royals and the A’s are on two different paths, the Royals, the surprise little engine that could type team would be happy regardless of their postseason outcome, and are riding a high wave, Oakland almost completed an epic collapse, and got in on Sunday. They are running on fumes, and won’t advance to the DS.
Result: Kansas City wins 5-2

In the National League: Pittsburgh will run away with it. I’m not a Pirates fan, but Buctober craze was electric last year. The 2013 NL Wild Card had home field advantage galore. The Giants don’t have the bats to match Pittsburgh.

Result: Pittsburgh wins 10-3
