At last, the playoffs are upon us. After a grueling 162-game regular season, it's time to finish with a flurry. There's a tripleheader on tap starting this afternoon, but until the games get underway, how about we here at FanHouse whet your appetite with some prediction-flavored hors d'oeuvres.
Our crack blogging team made their picks last night all the way through the World Series. After the jump you can see all the predictions, but before you check them all out, a few demographic notes:
--Despite the American League's clear dominance right now, an overwhelming majority picked a National League team to walk away with the title.
--The biggest underdog? The Phillies according to our guys. Only two people picked the Fightin's to beat the Brewers in the first round.
--No one picked the Red Sox to repeat. I guess everyone is spooked by Josh Beckett's injury.
--Both of our resident Cubs fans picked them to win the Fall Classic. They're either going to be very happy at the end of the month or are being set up for another tremendous letdown.
With that out of the way, enjoy, and feel free to make your picks in the comments. (And if you want a good laugh, check out our preseason picks).
