Rejoice, Expert MLB Postseason Predictions Have Arrived

If the experts have their say, it's going to be a great October for two cities on opposite coasts.

I hope you’ve been doing your couch calisthenics because your butt is going to be sitting in front of the TV all weekend as MLB has blessed us with a Wild Card weekend.

So, stock up on popcorn, bowls of Halloween candy you’ve already tapped into, and crack open a Modelo or three.

The MLB postseason is here. That affords us the opportunity to turn best-laid plans into cold takes or see them play out to strokes of genius.

Regardless, playoff predictions are here, and it seems like going chalk is the savvy choice for En Fuego baseball experts. First, here is the MLB bracket so you can play at home.

And the schedule for opening action. 

Our crack team of hardball experts looked at the summer that was and came away with the following picks.
