MVP: Michael Wacha. Just for keeping the games under 3 hours.

Nick Cafardo

Winner: Red Sox in 7. No reason to believe that this isn’t a magic season, start to finish

MVP: David Ortiz. Big Papi will go deep a time or two at the right time.

Peter Abraham

Winner: Red Sox in 6. No sweep this time, but better defense and relief pitching will carry the Sox. Koji high-fives everybody at the parade.

MVP: Jacoby Ellsbury. In his farewell to Boston before striking it rich as a free agent, Ellsbury shows off his speed and power.
