MLB Best Series 4/13-15

Nothing really sticks out but some decent games:

1. Phillies at Mets (Monday 110pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 710pm)

Phillies- The Phils have been off to a better start then expected to so far, the big players so far are C Carlos Ruiz and new Ss Freddy Galvis.

Mets- Had a decent 1st week by winning 2 games against the Nationals, then lost 2 out of 3 to the Braves. 1B Lucas Duda has been off to a good start,

Prediction- I like the Mets here with DeGrom and Harvey going the 1st 2 games, (Mets win 2 out of 3)

2.Rockies at Giants (Monday 435pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 1015pm)

Rockies- They are off to a good start,they did lose 2 to the Cubs, but have been off to a good start considering.They have Troy Tulowitzki leading them with help from Carlos Gonzalez.

Giants- The Giants have been decimated by injuries but, they still have a good core with Buster Posey. Nori Aoki and Angel Pagan.They just lost 3 of 4 to the Padres and are definitely  not as good as last season but, they are tough.

Prediction- I like the Giants in this series, with Hudson and Lincecum starting, plus opening home day Monday I see a sweep. (Giants win all 3 games)

3.Angels at Rangers (Monday, Tuesday 805pm and Wednesday 205pm)

Angels- They are not off to a good start as expected, they got beat by the Royals , they do have a good team that should be better than they are playing, with the likes of Albert Pujols and Mike Trout.Angels are coming off a sweep from the Royals.

Rangers- Also in the same boat not as good start as expected but, they do not have Darvish for the season and will have to rely on their hitting lead by Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland

Prediction- This is a tough one, as neither team has been good yet, I will take Texas since they are home but, it could go either way. (Texas 2 out of 3)

4.Nationals at Red Sox (Monday 305pm, Tuesday 610pm and Wednesday 135pm)

Nationals- They have been disappointing, they were expected to be a top team but, lost 2 out of 3 to the Mets and won 1 game at Philadelphia. They have a good team but, are not getting the runs.

Red Sox- Probably a surprising team as they are hotter than expected, beat the Yankees and also won 2 from Philadelphia. They have a good nucleus with Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez being the leaders

Prediciton– I like Boston, being the 1st home series, with big crowds at Fenway and a hot start. (Red Sox Take 2 out of 3 from Washington)
