Updated playoff predictions
Apparently, I know nothing about the American League. Last week I predicted that the Twins and Yankees would advance to the ALCS, and we’ve ended up with the A’s and Tigers instead…so let’s see…I’m going with the A’s in seven. I know the Tigers were the best team in baseball for most of the season, and I know they have all kinds of momentum right now, but I think Moneyball will trump the old-school grit. I really hope so, anyway. I admire people who think outside the box, and A’s GM Billy Beane has done it.
As for the NLCS, I’m going with the Mets in six. The Mets need to win because I need to go to the World Series–and I don’t plan on getting on a plane.
World Series prediction: Mets over A’s in five.

I’ve been told that there’s a little blurb about me in the current issue of TIME Magazine for Kids. I haven’t seen it yet. Have you?
