Texas Rangers vs Tampa Bay Rays
New York Yankees vs Minnesota Twins
Cincinnati Reds vs Philadelphia Phillies
Atlanta Braves vs San Francisco Giants
-The Phillies are the favorite on paper. In the NL.
-Its good to see Cincinnati, Atlanta and San Francisco in the playoffs. Will any of them be able to compete against Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt? We will just have to wait and see.
-Great to see Bobby Cox’s run for the Braves continue into the playoffs in his last season. Derek Lee at first for Atlanta, it would be great to see D-Lee get another ring.
-Its good to see Texas make the playoffs. I can get enough Josh Hamilton and Vladimir Guerrero. Cliff Lee to make another run at an incredible playoff hot streak? I sure hope so. He was lights out and great to watch last year.
-Dusty Baker back in the post season. Good to see. I’m still undecided about Dusty. I can’t help but hold him partially responsible for Kerry Wood and Mark Priors arm deterioration. Sorry Dusty, just don’t think I can forgive you. On the other hand, the team is young, and playing great baseball. It would be good for baseball to see them make it to the series.
That is all for now. More to come as the playoffs get under way on Wednesday. Definitly looking forward to this years playoffs. A lot of great stories could unfold in the weeks to come.
