With the 2009 regular season out of the way, Onion Sports runs down what to look for during the postseason.

  • Phillies: If everyone just does their part and hits one home run per game, they should be fine
  • Yankees: With the best starting pitchers, best bull pen, best lineup, and best regular-season record, the Yankees will be extra disappointed when losing in the first round on some bloop to right field
  • Rockies: Technically allowed to win World Series
  • Red Sox: With most of the team struggling to hit home runs, everyone on the roster will spend home games openly complaining about Fenway's Green Monster being too high
  • Angels: Fantastic defense will at least allow them to keep the games close when they lose the ALDS
  • Cardinals: If Matt Holliday plays like the Matt Holliday from the 2009 Cardinals, this team could go deep into the playoffs
  • Twins: Having played in one more game than the other playoff contenders gives this team too much experience
  • Dodgers: Would rather not make a prediction since it could be wrong
