I'm going with Detroit and L.A... but I hope we face St. Louis.

If St. Louis gets by LA, it will be a rematch of either '04/'06.

I'll go with the teams having HFA--Cards/Sox.

You should be able to take this to the bank since I picked all 4 winners last round.

No prediction, but I'd like to see the Dodgers versus the Red Sox as that has never happened in a World Series. Talk about a tough ticket though ... yikes.

Also, that would be a fairly unique backstory with the blockbuster 2012 trade between them---if it ended up putting both teams in the World Series.

Dodgers vs Red Sox is my prediction. Either way, we are getting 4 historic teams who can make the World Series, with all great ballparks. As long as Tampa was out I am happy cause that stadium is like a morgue!

That's putting it nicely. I've been in warehouses that had more personality.

Voted Dodgers and Sox, but I really want the Sox to lose somewhere.

Dodgers and Sox are tough teams but went with Cards/Tigers.

Going with the home state team and the team that took the division from KC

And year after year we get to hear about Joe Maddon and how Tampa Bay is a model organization, perhaps the best in baseball.

And they never win anything.

Great game played tonight by both teams. The Cardinals need to give Beltran another 2-3 year contract. Go Cardinals!!!!!

As long as the World Series isn't Los Angeles vs ESPN Sox I'll watch.

It figures a guy named EddieMoney doesn't factor in Tampa Bay's payroll compared to these other teams.

Re: MLB 2013 Playoffs, Championship Series Edition

The Cardinals have to have the lowest payroll of the four remaining teams. Also, some of their highest paid players are not even a factor for most if not all of the season: Chris Carpenter, Rafael Furcal, Jaime Garcia and to a lesser extent Jason Motte and now Allen Craig. Their payroll is about half of the Dodgers' payroll.

St. Louis' payroll is double that of Tampa Bay's ...

Hearing Magic Johnson compare "his" Dodgers team to the Showtime Lakers = ugh! Also, I'm not quite in agreement with his analysis that they are the most exciting team in baseball.

Ouch, don't like the Dodgers chances in the series if they can't score runs for Greinke and Kershaw
