Graveyard Baseball Podcast: Lions ŌenDEN Bonus Episode 1: 2016 NPB Playoffs
In a special episode of Lions ŌenDEN, Christian and Wes breakdown the 2016 NPB postseason in a draft format. As a collaboration, they rank each of the six Climax Series teams based on their chance of winning the Japan Series.
This is not based on talent and roster alone, but rather the path required and matchups teams will face that determined this ranking. While some rotations and other factors helped us decide who goes in front of who, we considered all tangible options when picking the top and bottom.

We would like to address that the Hiroshima Carp's record against the top Central League teams wasn't as dominant as B-class as said on this episode. However, we still would have placed them where they are in our rankings given the odds compared to the rest of NPB.
Did we get the rankings wrong? Do you have other thoughts? Let us know!
