I avoid picking because my teams always lose if I pick them--of course, they often lose when I don't, but I'm not dealing in reason here--and I've tried gaming the system and picking against my teams and that doesn't work either.

In short, I shall suffer in silence. :)

I appreciate your enthusiasm for the Angels. I grew up in north Orange County (the non-moneyed part), about 10 miles from Anaheim, and rooted for the hard-luck team throughout my childhood. Let's just say that the 2002 series was like the best day ever at Disneyland.

Teresa, Brian has the right idea, since all my picks seem to be going down. I am afraid that the Angels will not survive to make it to the next round; I say this hoping I am once again proven wrong.

I will have to do a recap with all of our picks OTM, Sporks and mine.

Ok, so I'm 3 for 4 so far, but with a big error...

given the LDS (baseball should NOT be associated with Mormons), I'm revising thusly:

Rockies over the D-Backs
BoSox over the Indians
Rockies in 6

Talk to me next week about how sure I am. :)
