Surprises? Not really

I'm not looking good in my first-round baseball predictions. That's not a surprise.

And while I misfired so far on both NLDS series, the results in those series aren't exactly surprising either.

Colorado is THE hottest team in baseball, so grabbing two wins at Philadelphia wasn't out of the question. Beating Cole Hamels could have been a stretch, but Jeff Francis outdueled "King Cole" and the Rockies stole Game 1.

Out in the desert, seeing the Cubs fall to Brandon Webb in Game 1 was not exactly earth-shattering news. However, seeing Ted Lilly fail to make it out of the fourth inning of Game 2 was a little stunning. Even at his worst this season, Lilly relaxed the Chicago bullpen's workload.

So far, no good for me in the NL. Not that that's a big surprise.
