Baseball Playoffs Set!

10/7/2009 Update:

Field of 8 vie for coveted trophy

I knew something could have been possible when I said the Twins might surge! Amazing one-game playoff last night between Minnesota and the (FAIL) Detroit Tigers – and now the playoff field is set.

Can you predict who will win each of the four series?

See original update from late September, after the jump…

9/21/2009:

The “Fall Classic” is getting closer!

With about two weeks left in the MLB season – and unless some kind of implosion happens, the following eight teams will be in the playoffs in October:

AL: NY Yankess, Boston Red Sox, LA Angels, Detroit Tigers (or maybe the Twins if they surge…)
NL: Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, LA Dodgers, Colorado Rockies

Can the Yankees hang on?

Out of the likely playoff contenders – the three that have the biggest fan base of course, are the Yankees, Phillies and Red Sox. Regular readers know that I’m a huge Yankees fan – and frankly – after their amazing mid-summer surge – I’m getting a bit nervous about whether they can hang on to 1st place and best AL record.

The Yankees have 12 games left – with SIX of them against tough opponents (three away at LA, then three at home against Boston)… We all know they’re making the post-season, and the one thing going for them is that they have the next two Thursday’s off (barring any rain-outs) – while Boston has to play 14 consecutive games. Other than the three against NY – the rest are relatively easy teams (KC, TOR, CLE).

Will New York hang on to the top spot?

The Yankees final position will be:

  • AL East Champs - Best Overall AL Record (69%, 101 Votes)
  • Wild Card Suckers! (19%, 28 Votes)
  • AL East Champs - LA has the best record (12%, 18 Votes)

Total Voters: 147

Yes, of course. :: Shrug :: I don’t care. I just don’t think MA’s comments were worthless or that he’s clueless.

Which makes one ponder…The Sox who”suck” crushed the spirits of the Choke-me’s FOREVER with their historic 4 game sweep of the Choke-me’s in 2004, on the way to winning the WS in 2004, and 2007 of course.

So if the Sox “suck”always, then what does that make the Choke me’s?

Have a great day!

PS if you chokers cannot win the World series again this year, will you up your 500 million off season shopping spree to 1 Billion next year? Would not it just be easier to buy every team,that is one way you guys could finally win a title this century.

Tah!

I wouldn’t bother wasting much time on MA. Her posts on all threads are pretty much worthless, this is just more of the same. Maybe if her store weren’t in the middle of nowhere, she would have less time on her hands. She was attacking the Phillies for not winning last week. Clueless.

Midtown-a, why don’t you just get off patssoxrevscelts back? I don’t get it. I think you started it. If you keep poking him with a stick he’ll come back at you in kind. Disingenuous / nasty to witness. Or am I missing something?

Thank you, I just don’t get it either. Anyway, I’ll go back to ignoring MA, but for the record, I would never call anyone “dumb” or “worthless”.

Did I say MA’s posts from the day were pretty much worthless? Yes. They were attacking me for the usual and Christopher Columbus for being the “jerk” that closed the post office, so that was my opinion.

“Her posts on all threads are pretty much worthless”. I’m not sure how you’re saying that I was saying MA was worthless and not her posts, but whatever. Can we pleae, please, please just move on?

Hey this is a baseball thread but I do not see a football thread so just wanted to say Congratulations to the MIAMI DOLPHINS for upsetting the overrated New York Jets, who actually already won the superbowl this season in week 2.

I don’t think that his comments are worthless. Be careful– you’re starting to sound like someone I know…
