The 2011 MLB Postseason kicks off with the American League Division Series tonight and the National League's tomorrow. Eight talented teams will be taking their shots at a World Series title.
For the rest of us and our 22 teams, well, at least we get to watch the playoffs, which are going to be hotly contested. And there's always next year.
And what about next year? Hey, it's never too early to take a look. Now of course there will be some big changes in the offseason...trades, free agent signings, firings, releases, call-ups, injured players returning, CBA discussions (the current agreement expires in December)...but for the most part, most teams' cores will be staying intact.
So, I took out my darts and took an early shot at seeing which teams might come out on top next season.
Here's your first look at all 30 teams' chances of winning the 2012 World Series. High five.
