MLB Division Series - A Plethora of Sweeps?

New, 12 comments

I realize the chances of it actually happening are slim to none... but so far in the division series', it doesn't appear any of them are going to even go to 4 games? I wonder if it has ever happened that all 4 division series' went 3 games and out.

The Phillies, Rays and Dodgers all lead their series two games to none and could easily take the 3rd game. If I had to put money down on the outcome of the next 4 games(1 game per series), I would say that the Red Sox will be the only team to lose... which would mean 3 of the 4 series go down in sweeps. Kind of interesting...
