Wednesday, October 6, 2010 – Hatfield’s MLB Playoff Picks!

October 7, 2010 on 4:00 am | In Baseball | No Comments

October is one of the great sports months of the year.  Why?  One of the reasons is because of the Major League Baseball Playoffs.  The 2010 MLB Postseason is here with some familiar faces – such as last year’s World Series participants the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies – as well as some newcomers such as the Texas Rangers, San Francisco Giants and Cincinnati Reds.  There are the darlings to root for like the Minnesota Twins and Tampa Bay Rays.  Star power is there too with names like Alex Rodriguez, Roy Halladay, Tim Lincecum, Joe Mauer, Ryan Howard, C.C. Sabathia and many others. 

Here are my picks on each series for the postseason, and stay tuned for more thoughts on the baseball playoffs in the BLOG!
