CBSSports.com experts playoff predictions
CBSSports.com's baseball writers take a stab at predicting the outcome of the next month's worth of games. With our six different baseball writers tabbing five different World Series champions, odds are in our favor that someone gets it right.
Because all of our experts had the Orioles finishing last in the American League East and all but two had the A's finishing last in the AL West, we're now here to give our best guess as how the playoffs will play out. Remember, these picks are for entertainment purposes only (and if that wasn't abundantly clear, take another gander at some of the preseason picks). But with our six baseball writers picking five different World Series champions, odds are decent that someone got it right.
