Round Three recap: Ringo bracket
Eliminated: 87 Blue Jays, 87 Cardinals
Both series went six games. Of the 14 possible games, 12 were played. The Ringo bracket, of course, consists of all 1987 teams, and the American and National Leagues were in opposite halves, so we have one American League team and one National League team in the fourth round.
Even though the Twins were the top seed, I regard the outcome of that series as an upset. The Giants over the Cardinals isn't much of an upset, although it does reverse the outcome of the real live NLCS. The team the Giants ended 1987 with was markedly strong than the one it opened the year with.
