Excerpt: "AL Division Series Previews"

"The A's have the best player by 2013 bWAR in Josh Donaldson. As you work through the rosters, though, you find that the Tigers have most of the better players in the series: they have three players with at least six bWAR; the A's have one. The Tigers have seven with at least three bWAR; the A's have three. Set the line at two wins, and the Tigers have a 12-8 edge. Postseason series are won with frontline talent, not depth; the Tigers' frontline talent dwarfs that of the A's."
