2011 MLB Playoffs: Five of the Best Potential World Series Match-Ups

It's that time of year again: The stretch drive to the MLB Playoffs. It's also time to re-visit those picks we all made for who would be in the World Series in 2011 way back in April. There were the die-hard Pirates fans got excited about the team's the start and said, "It's going be our year, we're going to take it!" Conversely, there were the realists who predicted a Yankees versus Phillies title series. Everyone had their own opinion, and now it's time to predict and preview some possible World Series match-ups that we could see unfold come October 19th, 2011.

Without a doubt, there are going to be questions as to why certain teams will be left out of the following match-ups, but we are looking at the best possible World Series match-ups and not ones that have the potential to be four-game sweeps.

Over the course of this slideshow, five separate potential World Series match-ups will be broken down, and there won't be many surprises.
