Who I’m Rooting For And Why…

I’ll start with the American League.

Twins vs Yankees:

Twins.
Why?
Because their the underdogs…
America loves the underdogs.
America loves to love the underdogs
America loves to hate the Yankees.
Pretty simple.

Red Sox vs. Angels:

Angels.
Why?
Because I like them more, I guess.
Also because I like Mike Scioscia.  
And Nick Adenhart

Now the National League…

Rockies vs. Phillies:

I don’t care, like at all. This series is bittersweet for me. Why? Because I know one of these teams will fail (YEY!!!), but one will succeed (BOO!!!).

Cardinals vs. Dodgers:

In a way I want to see the Cardinals win it all, but I would mind watching the Dodgers win…

So, Who are you rooting for??

Its The Most Wonderful Time of The Year…

Anyone remember that commercial from Staples where the Dad took the two kids school shopping? They played that classic Christmas song, the kids were depressed and pissed, and the Dad was dancing with glee…

No?

Why, here it is.

) verses a suddenly hot Chicago lineup. While The Twins are matching KC’s Hochevar (7-12, 6.24) with veteran pitcher and mid season pick up, Carl Pavano (13-12, 5.07).

In my opinoin, both the Twins and Tiger have advantages in their respective games. So, their season’s could both be decided by a tie-breaker. THATS EXCITING!

In a tie-breaker would insue, Scott Baker (15-9, 4.36) would face off against Rick Porcello (14-9, 4.04).

I like the move the Twins made. I like haing the veteran pitcher playing in the must win game, and playing their best pitcher in the tie-breaker. You want a guys whos been there, a guy who could pitch under pressure.

Both teams are in 1st place, both team are good, both can make the playoffs.
Its all up in the air!

Whoever wins will face the Yankees on 10/7/09 or 10/8/09 and swept out of the postseason on 10/11/09…

…Just kidding!

That’s all for me folks!
