Siddhuey Reviewy: 2012 MLB Playoff Preview


MLB Review and Postseason Preview

The National League has had its share of storylines this season but has lacked the enthralling playoff races of the American League. Nonetheless, the Pirates horror season and the Dodgers roller coaster ride have given NL writers plenty to talk about.

National League East
I picked the Marlins to win this division and that might have been the dumbest statement of the year had I not spoke again. The Marlins sucked all year and things have gotten so bad that the players have turned on their manager. The story of the division all year has been the Washington Nationals. To shut or not to shut Strasburg down? How good can Bryce Harper be? Eventually the Nationals stuck to their guns and shut down Strasburg for the season. The Nats have a good enough pitching staff to win the NL without Strasburg but the lingering question of ‘what if’ will hang over their heads this postseason.

National League Central
At the All Star break, baseball analysts wondered whether the Pirates could make the playoff but as the season wore on many merely hoped they would stay above .500. The Pirates didn’t and they have confirmed their status as one of the hopeless franchises in baseball. I picked the Cardinals to win this division and although they have made the playoffs they did not win the division. That distinction belongs to the Cincinnati Reds.

National League West
I picked Arizona to win the division and San Francisco won.

National League Playoffs
Wildcard Game: Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals
Chipper Jones is retiring this year and the whole of baseball is upset by the news. Chipper is one of those good ol’ boys of baseball; he packs a dip, he hits the ball and he has a southern accent.

I mean, look at his name, he’s called Chipper. Chipper Jones is one of the whitest names in sports alongside Carson Palmer and Webb Simpson.

Do I hate Chipper Jones? Yes. He’s the Brett Favre of Major League Baseball. He’s one dick pick short of actually being Brett Favre.

For those of you unfamiliar with Chipper Jones let me paint you a picture. He’s your typical Southern Frat Boy; he’s the kinda guy that would rock crocs, chinos and a t-shirt that reads “Save water, drink beer.”

Nonetheless, Chipper will be looking to summon some more magic for the Braves this postseason, specifically against the Cardinals. In a one off game like the wildcard I have to favor the home team and so I’ll pick the Braves, even if that means I have to tolerate Chipper for another day.

American League
The American League was by far the more compelling of the two leagues this year. The Oakland A’s were the best story in baseball, followed closely by the Baltimore Orioles. In third place was the Red Sox season from hell and the Angels inability to make the postseason rounded out the best stories in baseball.

American League East
The Orioles have been fantastic this year. You often wonder with teams like the Orioles when it will all go wrong. The Pirates melted down after the all star break and perhaps pessimistic Orioles’ fans felt their season would go pear shaped soon afterwards. However, the Orioles fought the good fight and ended up in the postseason as one of the wildcard teams . Unfortunately, the Yankees also enter the postseason and surely they will be among the favorites to take the whole thing.

I should mention that I picked the Yankees to win their division and win the World Series.

American League Central
Was this the worst division in baseball? Probably. The Tigers won the division thanks to a White Sox collapse that did not get the media coverage their shittiness deserved. Once again I picked the correct division winner but it was not Prince Fielder that led them to this pennant, but Miguel Cabrera.

Cabrera is the first winner of the Triple Crown (leads the league in batting average, RBI’s and home runs) since 1967. Many have tried to diminish this achievement but I am not one of them. Cabrera is hitting machine. The guy, almost singlehandedly, led the Tigers to the pennant by destroying the league in the last two months.

He is easily the most feared hitter in baseball and one wonders what he has in store for the postseason. If he continues to ball like he has and Verlander does what Verlander does, then the Tigers may be a very tough out.

American League West
In my MLB preview I laughed at the suggestion that the A’s could possibly get close to the Giants record.

They had the same record.

People said they would lose 100 games.

They almost won 100 games.

I was sure the A’s would finish last in their division, especially considering they were thirteen games back in the division. Fuck, they had a worse record than the Red Sox!

The A’s were crowned division champs.

How they did it, no one knows. Reddick and Cespedes come to mind as the leaders of the charge but how can I forget about Jonny Gomes; the man who fired back at the Yankees for their criticism of the A’s exuberance at victory. Brandon McCarthy may have been lost for the season but his hilarious tweets and his hot wife kept spirits up.

What’s the best part about winning the division? Rubbing it in to the teams with large payrolls. Fuck you Texas! Fuck you Anaheim! And fuck you Seattle for just being in the division and not really being a factor at all and just taking losses like Rihanna takes dicks.

The sky is the limit for this A’s team. I believe they are just as likely to win the World Series as they are to lose in the first round. They are unpredictable and I love it.

American League Wildcard
Baltimore Orioles vs. Texas Rangers

From an A’s perspective this matchup is quite nice. We don’t have to face the Yankees or the Rangers in the first round. The Rangers have no momentum going into the playoffs. While the Orioles are disappointed at finishing just short of the division title, they will take confidence from the pressure they put the Yankees under.

I really have no idea how to analyze the baseball side of this so I’m just going to say the Orioles will win the game.

BIG RON THE OAKLAND A’s PROPHET!!

On January 29th (year of our lord) The Over Sow Family and I attended the 2012 Oakland A’s FanFest at the Oracle Arena. It was an amazing day, we BBQ’d doof and had some brews. Ronald “Big Ron” Sharpe happened to film some FANtastic footy out front of the Oakland Coliseum (O.co) that would later be used in a video titled “Oakland Sesh with Big Ron” . Ron in this video say’s because he landed his trick first try the Oakland A’s would now win the AL West, at that point in time  no one in the world thought there was a chance in hell of that happening.

On October 3, 2012 Ron’s prediction came true!!! The video above shows a little bit of the end of wednesdays game and also has a phone call i had with Ron following his amazing prediction. Was the end of an amazing regular season and the beginning of any fantastic post season! LETS GO OAKLAND!!!!
