yankee girl

It may be fucking 40 degrees outside here in New York, but none the less, Baseball starts tomorrow. Super Bowl Sunday may be practically a national holiday, but for Major League Baseball fans, opening day is a day of religious observance. We may not be a sports blog per say, but we have some big fans right here in our office, and we all have our live streams ready to go tomorrow. So we thought, how can we bring the conversation to our fans? What better way to start arguments, and take full advantage of our blogosphere arrogance than with staff predictions. So without further ado, here are our picks for MLB Playoffs and World Series 2011. Enjoy Socialites, and give us your feedback.
