Yup, it's that time again. I'm bloggin' live couchside watching the Major League Baseball playoffs on TBS.
OK, starting off, I still can't completely jump on this Tampa Bay bandwagon yet. I know, I know, they just won Game 1 against the White Sox, but every part me still wants to shrug and say: "Come on, its the the Rays!" Oh yeah, maybe its the fact that they've had a million losing seasons in a row.
Well, Brett Myers looks really really legit. Wait, maybe it was the month of August that I didn't really pay attention to baseball due to being so wrapped up in the Summer Olympics, but, when did Brett Myers get really really good? Forget it, nevermind...I wish John Madden did play by play for all sports, and speaking of which, what happened to Joe Buck? Isn't Joe Buck half of the experience when it comes to post-season baseball? I just really pay attention to these things, I'm sorry. Alright, I've got my pick on this one... Phillies in three. Ummm, I hate to rain on Tampa's parade but I wanna say White Sox in 4. Hmmmm I was just told by a Napa commercial that I can gain peace of mind by taking my car to Napa. Man, that's where you get it...Napa...hmmmm
I've always thought that both the Phillies and the Brewers had some of the sweeetest looking hats in baseball.
Its always depressing to see massive amounts of former Mariners playing in the playoffs...Just to throw me in deeper depression can we take a look at what the Mariners could have looked like if they didn't trade away like everyone...Ok here we go.The past decade we would have had a lineup consisted of names like Ken Griffey Jr, Mike Cameron, Ichiro(soon to be traded), A-ROD, Jason Varitek(farm system), Tino Martinez, Jamie Moyer, Randy Johnson, Derek Lowe... I mean, just to name a few. Alright...enough moping.
Onto the Cubs. I feel terrible for Cubs fans that I already have a horrible feeling about their chances in the first round. I love the old fashion feel to the series but...lets just cut to the chase. Dodgers in 4.
