A Fun September

September is my 2nd favorite month of the baseball season, April being my 1st love because it means the sport I devote my life to is back on the big stage. Anyway, September is great for call-ups as the rosters expand up to 40 players and the hunt for October playoffs is a win-or-go-home scenario.

Today I want to focus on the quest for the postseason. The Cincinnati Reds and Texas Rangers each hold an 8 game lead in their division with the St. Louis Cardinals and Oakland Athletics barely hanging on by a string. The other division are a far more highly contested battle. In the AL East you have the New York Yankees holding it down while the Tampa Bay Rays are 2.5 back. Both teams seem destined for the playoffs, but each would like to claim the division title. In the AL Central the Minnesota Twins are 3.5 up on the Chicago White Sox, but don't be so quick to hand it over to the Twinkies just yet because the new Manny Ramirez spearheaded offensive attack of the Pale Booties ain't ready to give up. Then there's the NL East with the Philadelphia Phillies trailing the sentimental Atlanta Braves (bye-bye Bobby Cox!) by a game. My guess is both teams make the playoffs, with the Phils finally overcoming the Braves in the final series of the season (Phils have a 3 game advantage in the Wild Card). Then the NL West has become closer over the past week due to the San Diego Padres going on a huge slide (9 straight losses) and the San Francisco Giants continuing to play well...now only 2 back. The Boston Red Sox, St. Louis Cardinals, and Colorado Rockies hold on to a slim chance for the Wild Cards, but would need a miracle to reach the postseason.

Told ya September is fun.

*Remember those douchey Dane Cook "There's Only One October" commercials? Awful.
