LCS Preview

AL

#1 Boston vs. #2 Montreal

Path to the LCS - Boston beat Scottsdale in 5, Montreal beat Philadelphia in 5.

Top 10 - Boston finished at #1, Montreal at #2

Regular Season - Series split 5-5, Montreal +10 Run Differential

Pitching Matchups -

Game 1 - Preston Forster vs. Alexi Terrero

Game 2 - Jeff Woods vs. Victor Sierra

Game 3 - Sammy Iglesias vs. Wade Redmond

Game 4 - TBD
Game 5 - TBD
Game 6 - TBD
Game 7 - TBD

Prediction - This one should go the distance. Boston has the advantage offensivly, but Montreal has the better pitching staff. This may come down to Boston's players being more rested, and something tells me it's time for the Tea Partiers to gat back to the WS - Boston in 7

NL

#5 Honolulu vs. #2 Chicago

Path to the LCS - Honolulu beat Cleveland in 4 and Memphis in 4. Chicago beat Helena in 5.

Top 10 - Honolulu finished as the top ranked NL team at #5, Chicago was second at #6.

Regular Season - Honolulu won 6 of 10 games, with a +15 Run differential

Pitching Matchups

Game 1 - Randy Broome vs. Wascar Franco

Game 2 - Art Wingo vs. Cesar Reyes

Game 3 - Marvin Wilkinson vs. Spud Hughes
Game 4 - TBD
Game 5 - TBD
Game 6 - TBD
Game 7 - TBD

Prediction - This one is also going the distance. Both pitching staffs rely on two aces, and they should be able top cancel each other out. It will come down to offense, and Chicago has the advantage. If Honolulu steals one early, they would be the favorite to sweep in their pitching freindly home field. Honolulu in 7
