So its been awhile since I’ve posted. We’ll chalk it up to being so captivated by the playoffs that I haven’t been able to post. The real reason: I’ve been lazy.
The me bashing aside, I have to say I’ve been very pleased with how the playoffs have gone so far. Every team I want to advance is still alive or have already won their series.
Just some quick thoughts on what has transpired so far:
Tampa Bay- I wanted them to lose but still it is a shame they were bounced so quickly after their remarkable come back just to punch their playoff ticket. Only the Rays could start a rookie, who was making only his second big league start, and have him win a playoff game. Still I have to say it. The lack of Rays fans at home playoff games, as well as games down the stretch, was disgusting. That city does not deserve that team….though that’s not to say they aren’t without loyal fans. There is just not enough them.
Detroit- Joe Giradi starts A.J. Burnett in a must win game on your home turf and you can’t light him up?? Come on. It’s not over yet but if the Yanks do win Game 5 you have only yourself to blame.
Brewers- keep up the good work. Let’s end this tonight.
Cardinals- Well played to force a Game 5. Now all you have to do is beat Roy Halliday and you’re off to the next round!…ummm, good luck.
