2007 Playoff Predictions Thread.

18 posts in this topic

Time to go public with your predictions. OK to post your reasons, but if you would, please keep the back and forth commentary off this thread so we can keep it easy to reference later. We can spar all season on other threads we start. Here's my predictions.....

AL East- Red Sox

AL Central- Tigers

AL West- Angels

AL Wildcard- Twins

NL East- Mets

NL Central- Cardinals

NL West- Padres

NL Wildcard- Cubs

Tigers win the 2007 World Series. Twins win the 2008 series. You heard it here first. smile.gif

Whitesox and Angels have a decent chance of screwing up my predictions. I'd like to pick the Reds, but the pitching and defense is just not there.

AL East...Yankees

AL Central...Tigers

AL West...Angels

AL Wildcard...A's...in a close one over Boston, Cleveland, and the Twins.

NL East...Mets

NL Central...Cubs

NL West...Dodgers (best race...close over Padres and Diamondbacks).

NL Wildcard...Phillies

This kind of pains me because I love the Twins - I don't think they have enough starting pitching this year - and I hate the Cubs and Yankees. But I like Lou Pinella...

But in 2008, if Garza and Bonser can develop and can shoulder the load of starting all year, and Liriano can come back healthy, the Twins should be pretty dominant...

I'll take the Mets and Angels in the World Series.

Wow, I'm surprised that more people didn't choose the Brew Crew for the NL Central! I hear that they will do very well this year. But, on that note, Twins to win the AL Central

lets see i was 1 for 8 in my prediction.... not bad wink.gif

it sure has been an interesting year. i never would have guessed that the yankees would have turned it around the way they did after their dismal start and their pitching problems.

The NL really surprised me. i didn't think the NL west was going to be as good as they showed this year.

Yeah, but didn't they miss a homer for the Rockies, called it a double and the guy did not score, at least that is what one of the talking heads said on the radio this morning on my way to work.

      Dad and I fished this past Saturday and Sunday with portables and saying the fishing was slow would be an understatement. Between the 2 days we hit the mud flats pretty hard and stayed very mobile. Didn't even set up a house during the day because it was so nice out. We fished the mudflats from East Flat down to Blue Jug, over to 8 Mile and back up to Matton Flat. The day bite was very tough, we would mark fish but they wouldn't want much to do with it. We picked up 3 eyes Saturday morning with the biggest being 17" then picked up only 3 more during the day. They only seemed to hit our dead sticks with a shiner on it. We used mainly VMC gold perch tingler spoons and flutter spoons without much luck jigging. On Saturday night we had a sleeper rented from Twin Pines Resort and our house was in 20'. We had 6 bites throughout the night with a bigger fish breaking off and a couple smaller ones being caught. We really had to give them a lot of time to inhale the shiner. On Sunday we went back out to the Mud Flats with little confidence and the fishing was pretty slow again. Didn't hear many good reports from this weekend, not sure if it was the warm weather along with the pressure system or what.

      I think your best bet would be the narrows on Pelican. That can be pretty good crappie and walleye area. I usually fish it a couple times earlier in the season. Otherwise closer to Battle Lake you could give South Turtle or East and West Lost a try.

      I thought Clitherall was pretty good but never fished panfish down there.  I fish mainly the Perham/DL area.   Panfish have been very skitish as of lately.  We have been using mainly 4mm and 5 mm jigs for crappies but the panfish are wanting 3 mm jigs.  Best luck has been with a horizontal shapped jig tipped with 2-3 wax worms (depending on hook and wax worm size) very lightly jigged.  Most of the action has been once they appear is to reel up above them 5-8 feet then slowly drop down stopping 1-2 feet above them and twitching the jig LIGHTLY.  Anything with a "GLOW" has been killer for paints.  The lakes I've been fishing have almost a foot of snow and the water was merky prior to freeze up so even though the sun is up I'm still hitting the jigs with the UV Light and the fish are instantly reacting.  I've been targetting deeper holes and finding them in that 20-30' mark but I've heard some reports that they have started coming back up into the shallows and hitting the green weeds again.  Crappies right away this year were liking the 5 mm jigs tipped with a wax worm and soft plastic suspended but they have started preferring smaller jigs also.  Hope this helps you some.

      Caught a few walleyes on o'dowds this weekend. Was marking a lot of fish on the bottom but very skidish and not willing to bite very well. Anyone else have any luck on o'dowds?
