These are some great match ups, and as pumped as I can remember to watch them all.
Who ya got?

NYY over Minnesota
Houston over Boston in 5
NYY over Cleveland in 5
Houston over NYY in 7

Arizona over Col
Arizona over LAD in 5
Chicago over Washington in 5
Arizona over CHI in 6

Houston over AZ in 6

Obviously most of these are coin-flips to start.

In terms of some specific reasoning, the Yankees just wear down starters regardless of quality and they have a ridiculous pen which they can use liberally.

We've seen a bit of a preview of the Astros, though this series is basically down to Sale and if he has much left in the tank.

Arizona may be the Dodgers toughest match up, due to familiarity. The D-Backs handled them in regular season (11-8 and outscoring them 91-71 and with Wood tiring they seem vulnerable.

I have no idea on the Nats/Cubs so flipped a coin. Heads for Cubs.
