The LCS or the Uncivil War

Charleston RiverDogs vs Nashville Hillbillies - Two old foes go at one another in the ALCS. RiverDogs GM, danka, was surprised they got by Toronto even though they were favored by the handicappers. The Hillbillies swept by the Aces rather handily. The season series show they were tied 5-5 in their 10 meetings this season. Although the RiverDogs had a 6-4 home field advantage and won 4 of those 6. So it would seem the RiverDogs will need to garner a split in Nashville to have a chance. Crystal ball says Nashville in 6 games if the split doesn't happen. This is the playoffs and anything can happen and if it goes 7 games it is anyones to win.

Honolulu Warriors vs Arizona High Heat - Arizona beat Florida and division foe Cheyenne to get here, not the easiest of tasks, and the last game was epic. Honolulu swept Syracuse and Milwaukee to to claim their chance at glory. Arizona holds the season series 6-4. Home field is not an advantage to either team in this long series. Crystal ball shows an even split between the two which we know can't happen. Home field is not a real advantage. Advantage goes to Honolulu with their playoff record so far.
