WVFN Staff Picks: 2015 MLB Postseason
And then there were 10. 2,430 games later and the 2015 MLB playoff picture is finally set. We knew the National League contenders for a while but it took until game 162 to knock out the final American League team (LA Angels).
Will the Cubs break their curse? Will Josh Donaldson, David Price and the loaded Blue Jays deliver a World Series north of the border? What about a Subway Series 2?

Some words on their predictions:
Beanie: "The Blue Jays went all in with already having the best offense in baseball. David Price is a left-handed dominator, and he'll help them get over the hump in October."
Brockadamus: "I don't want to pick against the Cardinals after they put up a 100-win season and looked dominant doing so. The NLCS will be a tough one though with the Dodgers."
The Dean: "I love pitching when it comes to the postseason and Greinke and Kershaw will be too much for opponents to handle."
Mad Dog: "I think Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke are going to be unbelievable. I love Toronto and David Price but I love Magic's team more. These guys are adding on to the likes of Yasiel Puig, and Don Mattingly is due for this."
Producer Zak: "Two wild cards playing in the Series last year, even though there are some stacked teams who won the divisions, I think Houston goes through. The Mets will stop them short though. Both teams are very well rounded and yet under the radar I feel, compared to Toronto, St. Louis, Kansas City etc."
