Okay, I'm an idiot

So I had the playoff matchups wrong in the AL. Let's fix this with new predictions (along with new info about the teams)

A's over Twins in 4
Yankees over Tigers in 4
Dodgers over Mets in 3
Padres over Cardinals in 4

A's over Yankees in 7
Dodgers over Padres in 6

A's over Dodgers in 5

With Santana losing today, the Twins are in deep, deep trouble, especially against Oakland's potent rotation. The Mets are similarly in trouble, as it seems 3 members of their intended playoff rotation is injured in some way or another and can't start game 1 (Pedro - out for playoffs, El Duque - some sort of strain, Glavine - not ready yet). Their pitching is just a mess.
