I predicted the Brewers would take down the Diamondbacks in five games, so I'll try my hand at the NLCS.
First and foremost, both clubs are playing exceptional baseball right now. After just sneaking into the postseason as the NL Wild Card, the Cardinals were able to do the impossible by defeating the mighty Phillies, getting to Roy Halladay in Game 5.
However, the Brewers will have home-field advantage with Philadelphia out of the playoff picture, which does not bode well for Tony La Russa and company. Granted, these two clubs split their regular-season series 9-9, with Milwaukee outscoring St. Louis 71-64. Nevertheless, there's simply no disputing how well the Brewers have played at home this season.
Expect that to be the difference as the Brewers take the series in seven games, advancing to their first World Series in 29 years.
