2009 Playoff Predictions (Yeah, I’m late)

I meant to do this the day the playoffs started, but I forgot. We’re three days in, but I’m doing them anyway. Yeah, I’m doing them based on the fact that all the series have two games played now. Sue me. :)
ALDS: Angels over Red Sox in 4, Yankees over Twins in 3
ALCS: Yankees over Angels in 6
NLDS: Phillies over Rockies in 4, Dodgers over Cardinals in 4
NLCS: Phillies over Dodgers in 7
World Series: Yankees over Phillies in 6
Obviously, my first choice would be for my Phillies to repeat. But failing that, I want the World Series to be Dodgers vs Yankees, so TORRE CAN BEAT STEINBRENNER!
Also, bases loaded with nobody out an nobody scores? Yeah, you got screwed on a foul ball call Twins, but come on. Bases loaded and you don’t score any? Yeah, you don’t deserve to win. I originally was going to call that series as Yankees sweep in 3, but then in the middle of Game 2, I thought the Twins could make it a series. But after that no run scoring fiasco, no. You need to go home Minnesota. Not that the Tigers would have done any better there anyway.
