It’s the start of Labor Day weekend, and I’m kicking back watching Gameday, thinking about college football, the start of the NFL season in five days and the stretch drive of major league baseball. Here’s some general sports predictions covering all three.
These picks have been made, in one form or another, on different spots on TheSportsNotebook, but here’s a summation that brings it all together, with a few brief comments.
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL
American League Playoff Teams: Baltimore, Cleveland, Oakland, LA Angels*, Kansas City*
