Hermosillo has to be considered the favorites in the Mex Pac postseason after finishing with a superb 21-12 road record. However, the Naranjeros were a mediocre 17-17 at home, where they open their first round series against Navojoa this weekend. Hermosillo defeated Navojoa six of nine times the two teams played during the regular season.

Defending champion Mazatlan was an LMP-best 24-10 at home, but lost their final four games to end a disappointing second half with a 15-18 record going into their first round set with rival Culiacan. The Venados won their season series against Culiacan, eight games to three.

Obregon gets home field advantage against Mexicali, and the red-hot Yaquis may be the team nobody wants to play in the postseason. The Aguilas beat Obregon six out of ten games this winter, but all six of those wins came in the first half.
All three best-of-7 series were scheduled to begin Saturday, January 2.
