ALDS
Toronto Blue Jays vs Texas Rangers (Jays, I how chances are slim for Jays this year.)
Boston Red Sox vs Cleveland Indians (Indians)
NLDS
LA Dodgers vs Washington Nationals (Dodgers)
Chicago Cubs vs San Francisco Giants (Cubs, could be a hell of a series)

My picks are just guesses

Added later: 2010 SFG, 2012 SFG, 2014 SFG........ Hmmm 2016 ???

^^^ If this alleged sports copy editor is the thrower, one would think he'd know better. Wait a minute, only a complete moron would not know better then to throw items at players.

If he is found guilty in the courts, then MLB should place him on league wide ban order. Length to be determined by the League & both Baltimore & Toronto management (since it happened to Baltimore player & at the home of Toronto).

News says he has been charged. High def video showed he was the thrower.

He says "completely innocent".

I guess during such a good game, this major sports fan (even is a sports writer) remember he needed to pick something up at the store, or had to mail a letter and left the area before police got to where he was sitting.

Very strange someone who WAS in the sports writing business would do this. I say WAS because that's the reality. Whatever he gets or doesn't get from the courts is nothing compared to his loss of opportunity regarding watching and writing about sports.

Sure "enjoyed" listening to the homer telecast of todays game.

Tonight is pretty well do or die for Blue Jays, if they go down 3 games to 0. Chances of a comeback is real slim, since only 1 MLB has ever done it. 2004 Boston Red Sox were down 3 to 0 with NY Yankees and comeback won 4 straight to take the series.

Well, Cleveland could do what Cavaliers did and knockoff Toronto team tonight & move on to MLB Finals.

Yes there is another name for MLB Finals, since only 2 countries have teams in MLB (1 of those 2 countries only has 1 team). I won't call it the other name.

Added later: if Toronto is knockoff..... Go Chicago Go, knockoff that curse.

As much has been said about the Jays bats going silent, what a lot of people fail to see is that Cleveland isn't really out slugging the Jays either. In fact both teams are tied in total hits going into game four. Cleveland is a team of opportunist and that's the only difference in this series so far.

Cleveland is taking advantage of the fact Toronto is unable to hit anything that is not a fastball.
Toronto lives or dies on long ball nothing else, take that away it's all over. (all Cleveland needs to throw are sliders & sink balls and Toronto hitters are lost)
If Sanchez plays like he did against Texas then Toronto will be cleaning off those golf clubs.

Just need to do that 2 more times to setup game 7 showdown, or win 3 to move on and be only 2nd team mb team to do so.

As much as Josh Donaldson's locker room talk to his teammates before game four jacked up his and his teammates play resulted in a 5-1 victory over Cleveland, one has to wonder if Jose Baustista's comments after the game about the inexperience of Cleveland's rookie pitcher Ryan Merritt deflated any momentum the Jays gained. Judging after three innings of this afternoon's game five game Merritt doesn't seem to be shaking in his boots and the Jays are the ones who look rattled.
