Pond scum! Pond scum!

Most people probably won't remember that mid-80s reference, and, honestly, that's probably to your credit. Though we did enjoy when, riding the subway the other day wearing a Cardinals hat, someone yelled "Hey, John Tudor sucks!" We loved John Tudor.

Anyway, again, if the rain stays away, the NLCS will kick off tonight. There's, uh, a prohibitive favorite.

Here's a roundup of predictions from around the Web.

‚ÄĘ Peter Gammons: Mets in six.
‚ÄĘ Buster Olney: Mets in seven.
‚ÄĘ Cool Standings: Mets in six.
‚ÄĘ John Donovan: Mets in five.
‚ÄĘ Baseball Musings: Mets.
‚ÄĘ Baseball Prospectus: Mets in six.
‚ÄĘ DEADSPIN: Cardinals in seven. Come on. You expected anything else? We're helplessly biased. Also, Chris Carpenter would pitch a Game 7 on full rest ... so we'd like our odds in that one.


We're probably the only one, though, right? Give us your thoughts in the comments.
