The time for October baseball is officially upon us! The Twins and Yankees will get the 2017 postseason started tonight with the AL Wild Card Game with the Rockies and Diamondbacks squaring off tomorrow in the NL version.

A potential rematch of last year’s World Series is still on the table as the Indians and Cubs both made the playoffs again. Chicago capped off last year’s postseason by taking home the World Series in a dramatic Game 7 in comeback fashion.

Will the Cubs repeat after finally breaking the curse in 2016? Will the Indians get revenge for blowing a lead in last year’s World Series? Can Paul Goldschmidt or Aaron Judge carry a wild card team deep into the playoffs? Will the Dodgers finally make a run behind Clayton Kershaw? All these questions and more will be answered this October! Here is a look at the Last Word on Baseball’s editorial staff and their predictions for the postseason.
