2019 MLB Playoffs | American League PANTONE Colors
Perhaps the most consistent franchise in baseball over the last 5 seasons, the Astros mixed dominant pitching with athletic fielding and timely hitting to win a remarkable 107 games in 2019. Houston may once again be the favorite to win the World Series, a feat they last accomplished in 2017.
The Twins’ young roster set a new MLB season record for most home runs during the 2019 regular season. Nelson Cruz, Max Kepler and company hope to bash the Twins to their first World Series victory since 1991.
New York Yankees
Don Larsen’s perfect game in the World Series. “Mr. October” Reggie Jackson. “Mr. November” Derek Jeter. Mariano Rivera’s mastery. No franchise has a greater postseason resume than the New York Yankees. But can the Yankees overcome injuries, the powerful Twins and the dominating Astros to reach another World Series?
The Athletics remain one of baseball’s most remarkable franchises, consistently fielding competitive teams with lower payrolls (and ushering in the era of analytics). Oakland won 97 games this season and won’t be sneaking up on anybody; can they advance past the Wild Card game against Tampa Bay?
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays survived a tough AL East to finish ahead of talented teams like Cleveland and Boston to snag the final AL Wild Card berth in the 2019 playoffs. Tampa’s pitchers gave up the 2nd-fewest runs in the American League this season.
2019 MLB Playoffs | National League PANTONE Colors
The Braves’ young squad just keeps winning. With all the drama surrounding NL East counterparts like Washington and Philadelphia, Atlanta carried on their winning ways and took the NL East crown yet again. Is Atlanta’s next step to reach the World Series?
Los Angeles Dodgers
106 wins, the fewest runs allowed in baseball, and the 2nd-best run differential during the 2019 season. The Dodgers are loaded for a deep 2019 playoff run, but will they get over the hump and claim the World Series for the first time since 1988?
The Brewers suffered a tough injury to reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich towards the end of the regular season, but the Brew Crew has enough talent to still contend. The question is, will the loss of Yelich keep Milwaukee out of the World Series picture?
St. Louis Cardinals
This is the time of year nobody wants to see St. Louis on their schedule. The Cardinals have a history of being downright scary in October, with memorable runs to the World Series on 4 separate occasions this century.
Remember when Washington lost Bryce Harper to the Phillies and all was lost? Well, the Nationals just earned a Wild Card berth without Harper, whose Phillies didn’t make the playoffs. We’d bet anything that happens after this will be icing on the cake in DC.
