First round baseball predictions

10/2/2008:

While most area residents feel a bit out of place this October because no New York team made the playoffs – there are still plenty of fans of the teams that actually did.

Do you have baseball fever?

The Philly fans are having kittens they’re so excited, Boston fans think they’ll repeat, and so on… The experts generally believe the Angels, White Sox, Cubs and Phillies will advance to the next round.

What do you think?

15 years. It’s been 15 years since we won a playoff game before Wednesday.

[quote comment=”109859″]You know Katie, the craziest thing about this Phillies talk is there’s almost no mention of a certain MVP. When he wakes up, watch out. Again, best of luck to you all from a Mets fan. History just hasn’t been kind to your city[/quote]
I guess I don’t really go on about him because it’s just expected that he plays well. And he has been known to spout off at the mouth (and in my opinion, that’s real klassy).

Ryan Howard is just a big teddy bear, America, just a big teddy bear. That’s his line from a Phillies commercial. I believe it. He’s the most improved infielder, and is coming along as a great first baseman. Jayson Werth is truly a star, and they pointed out yesterday that he has really benefited from being later in the line up. He and Howard both had a sick September. Cole Hamels was unbelievable in game 1, and my only regret is that they put Lidge in to finish it (the man gives me gray hairs!!). Lidge is a fantastic closer, but see above gray hairs comment! Victorino has a ton of heart. I love that about him. And speaking of heart, Jaime Moyer runs on and off the field like a gentleman, plays like he’s always played, and comes through for us in clutch situations – I like him too!! The only player I’m not totally impressed with is Burrell, but that goes back a long way and has more to do with Pat the person than Pat the bat. I… Read more »
