The 66ers made great strides during 2008, from a pathetic start to the season to a team that made the playoffs without a great number of prospects.
Lake Elsinore was the better team going into the series. They have the best offense in the league, and the pitching has gotten better. Lake Elsinore was my pick to win the first half but it was Lancaster that came out with the win.
Lake Elsinore was the hottest team going into the playoffs, so I will predict the Storm will beat Lancaster, then beat San Jose in the finals. In 2005 and 2007, as the rotation goes in the finals, San Jose had home field advantage and won all of its home games to take home the title. This year the South has home field, so the Storm will win the title with the fifth game at The Diamond.
