Looks like the Marlins are a nice bet to win the fall classic!  No shock from me if Miami wins the 2020 World Series!
The 1997 and 2003 Marlins had a lot more talent. I just don't see this team making a World Series run, maybe 1 or 2 series at most.

My predictions:
Rays over Blue Jays
Indians over Yankees
Twins over Astros
White Sox over Athletics
Dodgers over Brewers
Reds over Braves
Cubs over Marlins
Cardinals over Padres

The thing with the Marlins was a joke.  I donít expect them to do much.  While it technically is possible for them to win, they were also in a position where they couldíve done worse enough to obtain the worst pick.  Really, I thought they were going to get kicked out for their violations and the outbreak due to their total carelessness.

It is still amazing that theyíve never lost a playoff series (which led to my comment); their postseason history includes 1997 & 2003 and thatís it).  They donít even have a division title yet!

Game 1 of Cincinnati-Atlanta becomes the first game in postseason history to be scoreless after 11 innings. They each had golden opportunities to score, but couldn't cash in.

And Atlanta takes game 1, 1-0 in 13 innings on an RBI single from Freddie Freeman.

Astros move on. The Twins have lost 18 consecutive playoff games dating back to the 2004 ALDS. Yikes!

And now the umps have joined in on the Astros' favoritism. George Springer stays in the game even while yelling from the dugout. Eddie Rosario gets ejected as he's walking back two seconds after striking out and is then given the silent treatment. Good balance there.

And now the Indians are unraveling. Gio Urshela just hit a grand slam of them.

Just don't make it a Buccos picture.  At least Minnesota's won a playoff series in the past 4 decades!

Over six hours after the scheduled first pitch, the Yankees are off to the Division Series.

As per this article from the Associated Press. For the first time this season, Fans can attend the NL Championship Series and the World Series in Arlington, Major League Baseball said yesterday. There will be approximately 11,500 tickets will be available for each game that is about 28% of the 40,518-capacity, retractable-roof stadium of the Texas Rangers.

The pricing of the all-digital tickets is $40-250 for the NLCS and $75-450 for the World Series. With 10,550 seats in the regular sections of the ballpark and 950 in suites and will be sold for individual games in pods of four contiguous seats.

The pods will be distanced by at least 6 feet, and a checkerboard pattern will be used, with alternating rows of seats in the middle or at the ends and tying back unsold seats.

Also, there will be no seats sold in the first six rows within 20 feet of the field, dugouts, or the bullpen. Fans will not be allowed to the lowest level reserved for tier-one personnel of the MLB, such as players and managers.

Atlanta advances to the DS, sweeping the Reds in a 5-0
victory at Truist Park. Cincinnati never scored.

Don't count the Padres out. In an elimination game, they've turned a 6-2 deficit into a 9-6 lead.

Atlanta takes game 1 of their NLDS, 9-5 over Miami. Unlike their Falcons counterparts,  the Braves took a late lead (after being down 4-1 earlier) and preserved it.

Game 2 is won by Atlanta, 2-0. They are the third team in postseason history to have pitched three shutouts in the first four games (Baltimore in 1966 and the New York Giants in 1905 were the others).
