    Hope the Dodgers kick some arse! LB52 congrats on the NL West title.

    My picks for the playoffs-

    Padres over Cardinals in 3
    Dodgers over Mets in 4

    Yankees over Tigers in 5
    Twins over A's in 3

    I give the NL no chance in the WS.

    I'm thinking about having a bet on the Yankees at 2/1, but the Twins are also a fair price at 5/1.
    The Yankees hitting looks unstoppable, but I keep hearing the 'pitching wins championships' cliche in the back of my head.

      Since none of my teams made it (Rockies/Marlins) I'll be rooting for Oakland and Frank Thomas. They've lost in game 5 of the division series in 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003. I'd like to see them advance to the World Series for the first time since 1990, though I doubt they can get past the Twins.

      I'm also hoping Alex Rodriguez has a big postseason to shut up all the unclutch crap.

        I'll be rooting for the Cardinals, as always. I don't have a ton of faith in the squad since the pitching staff, aside from Chris Carpenter, is a mess and the team went into such a tailspin at the end of the season.

          It should be a good series. I went to a couple of games when the birds came in to PetCo. It was a crazy series featuring 4 of the longest homeruns in PetCo's history (Piazza, Bard, Bellhorn, Pujols [A monster blast].) Peavy got a win after getting shalacked, and the Cardinals were able to avoid the sweep when Brian Giles was picked off of first base in the bottom of the 9th inning of game two of the series...killing what would become a staple of SD's season...a rally.

          Overall the Madres were 4-2 against the cardinals this season, and hopefully they can give the birds back a little of what they got in the playoffs last year...a beating.

          The Madres outscored St. Louis by a count of 38-24 during their season series.

            Anybody but the Mets and Cards and I'll be happy.

            Ideally, I'm pulling for a Padres/Twins series.

                  GO TWINS! SLAY THE GIANT! I was actually kind of bummed that Minne won the division--I wanted a MINN-NY matchup from the start.

                      ...also, I just can't bring myself to root for SD as they are the HATED interleague rivals of the M's!

                      (joking)

                      The local media always plays that up before interleague starts...

                        Peoria is our turf. You are the inferior tenants of our spring training complex. Rent is due!

                        Congrats on the Orange Mane baseball title. I feel like the 1954 Indians. You kicked my ass three times this season. Well deserved.

                            Ha...ha...ha...

                            Peoria (or ST in general) is where Beltre plays his best ball. We have to get something out of him, ya know. Although, he was pretty darn solid outside of April...

                            Thank you sir...thank you.


                            On a serious note, I guess I will sorta pull for SD. Cammy's the man...
