Buffalo Lebowski's v. Anaheim Hell Raising Jalapenos: The "ghost ship" proved with their 1st round thumping of the Sun Dogs that they don't need an owner to win. They didn't need anything from Lew Evans either, but Anaheim is a different beast. The firepower up and down that lineup is downright scary......Pedro Bonilla, Nap Musial, Tony Bennett, Tony Weiss, Elvis Collins and Sven Baez.....WOW!! Can Buffalo score enough to make this a series or will they ride the wave a momentum and sweep into the ALCS? Prediction: Anaheim in 5.
Edit: Buffalo has jumped on Anaheim and stole the 1st two games on the road. So far Buffalo's pitching has the big bopper of Jalapenos fooled!!
Houston Oilers v. Syracuse Psychos: It was promises to be the best series of the DCS two powerhouse teams go to battle. Bigparb felt that the Oilers all-around game might be too much for the big name baller of Syracuse, but so far led by a lights out performance by Jack Redmond in Game 1 the Psychos are about to go up 3-0 and all but close out the series. Pre-series prediction: Houston in 7.
Iowa City Rounders v. St. Louis Red Birds: The young Rounders have their hands full with arguably the best team in the AL. Can Hernandez, Mullens and Puffer continue this magical run against the Red Birds and their veteran lineup. Alex Torres heads the best pitching staff in the AL, while Teddy Anderson and Louie Santiago are the oil that grease the wheels of this balanced and dangerous lineup. The teams have split the first two of the series, but bigparb doesn't think the Rounders will be able to score with the Red Birds. Pre-series prediction: St. Louis in 6.
New Orleans Pelicans. v. Chicago Blagos: This series appeared lopsided from the start. We've got probable S17 AL MVP Frank Robbins trying to out-score the best offense in the AL led by the likes of Tony Pena, Gary Girardi, Benito Rijo, Lee Flick, Lou Kelly, and Diego Guzman. No one in the HBD universe gave the Pelicans a shot in this series, but they forgot to tell Emil Cabeza, the guy is on fire!!!! Will it be enough though? I don't think so. Pre-series prediction: Chicago in 5.
