    Playoffs are nearing


    Well whats everyones predictions for the playoffs for who is going and how you think will make the world series. I know I am getting damn excited right now and with how close the AL central division is it definatly anything but boring, any of the 3 teams (Twins, Tigers, White Sox) could be the pennant/wild card winner right now.

    My thoughts: I would love to see the twins go to the world series this year and I think they have earned it thus far with how far behind they were before interleague games and the dominating winning streaks they to come back. As well as having two of their best pitchers out right now (one being one of the best in the league Liriano) and still managing to catch up to the detroit tigers. Yankees is the team that seems to beat us in the playoffs the past 3 years in a row we had gone (excluding last year when we didn't make it).

    As of now I think the an AL team will win the world series again and I think the playoffs in the AL are going to be VERY close an incredibly entertaining with how well the teams are doing how well they have all been able to come back from bad situations. This year has been one hell of a year for many teams!

    As much as I want the twins in the world series, if I cant have that, seeing the mets and yanks play each other would be one hell of a series! But i'd be rooting for the mets since they are always seen as a crap team compared to the yanks.

    The Mets are a great team this year. Being a Yankee fan, born and raised in Brooklyn NY, I would love another subway series. Yankees winning of course

    A month ago I thought I would be excited and happy about right now, but then my Reds rolled over and died. Every year it's the same ****: great and promising first half, third place second half. We lost Kearns, Casey, and Willie Mo for a bunch of gas cans. I hate to say it, but let Griff go play DH somewhere and pay for some real pitching.

    Presently the Yankees and Mets have the best records in the their respective leagues. I'm anxious to see how the rest of their leagues finish. Just noticed that Phili has a real good shot at the WC.


    So far I'm two-for-two

    Yeah, WC = Wild Card is what I meant. Baltimore has so much potential and just don't produce.

    Dammit...I was skimming while at work and thought that said WS for some reason...my bad.

    ...Baltimore always seems to have a great team on paper or great potential. Unfortunately I have yet to see them in the big series. I'm 25, so I just missed out.

    P.S. I HATE THE YANKEES!

    When Lee Mazzilli went to manage Baltimore I had very high expectations. They started out with a bang and then faded. Unfortunately they dropped Mazzilli.

    See, now, if your were a Yankee fan like me you would have seen more WSC. I have been able to witness them win as a kid in 77 & 78, then 96, 98 (witnessed the sweep of San Diego in person in San Diego), 99, 00. Then I had the bitter sweet experience of watching them loose to my current hometown team, the AZ Diamondbacks in what I consider to be one of the most exciting series for me since I saw them win as a kid in 77 & 78.

    Damn Jeffrey Maier!...and yes, that quote is a little before my time, but thanks to Wikipedia and SNL reruns I do know a little about Chico . Too bad I was too young to remember my ultimate WS 1983 World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Oakland clinched. That's 3 for 3.

    Looks like my picks for Minn. and Det. are good as they both clinched a playoff birth. It's just a matter of who is the WC and who is the AL Central Division Champs.

    Houston is an a Rocket (punn intended)

    There's baseball in cities other than NYC. I would say San Diego is the favorite in the NL, but now they're down 0-1.

    True. Actually a few more if you count the teams that left the city. Brooklyn Dodgers/ NY Giants. Can we talk about something else, now?

    Unhappy


    With a very heavy heart I have to offer congratulations to the Detroit Tigers for winning the ALDS over my Yankees. The great thing about sports is there is always next year.

    That's what makes these short series so hard to predict. Momentum swings, top 3 starters, anything can happen.....

    For what it's worth however, Joe Torre should NOT be shown the door; especially in a disrespectful style as if it's all his fault. I just don't see better candidates out there that have the respect of the players and can "manage" the ownership.
