The NLDS has been more exciting in my opinion. The NLDS has had extraordinary pitching in both Game 1s. Both Game 2s of the NLDS have been offensive battles. What else is their that people want to see besides pitching or offensive battles? ALDS has had the Rangers and Yankees dominating Rays and Twins which is only fun for a fan of Rangers or Yankees to watch. Though Game 3 of the Rays-Rangers NLDS was good with the 9th inning comeback. So my opinion is....

NLDS wins over ALDS, in more entertaining for baseball fans.
