Same As It Ever Was?
Playoff time is rolling around and guess who won't be making an appearance...the Atlanta Braves. Doesn't make me sad. Does it make you sad? Nah, didn't think so. October is just around the corner and the Tomahawk Chop won't be annoying the crap outta me this fall...thank goodness!
Not all is well in playoffville, as both New York teams made it. I hate the Yankees the most, but don't worry I still have enough angst left to throw some loathing the Mets way too. Both teams are probably considered the favorite to capture their league's perspective pennants, but God I hope not! Fellow blogger, Corey, foresees an all-NY World Series...yuck!
The NL Wild Card is still up for grabs, and if my Phillies make it, I probably won't be able to sleep the entire month of October. The Twins, A's, and Tigers are locks in the AL and I wouldn't mind seeing any of those teams in the World Series. The Cardinals are quickly withering in the NL Central with Houston nipping at the heels...time will tell how that plays out. The Padres and Dodgers look like they'll split the Wild Card and NL West division lead...but I hope the Dodgers severely blow up and falter these last 5 games!
