    MLB Playoff Thread

    A little disappointed in the postseason this year.

    NL
    Dodgers vs. Mets

    would love to see the Dodgers win this, but i don't think they have it, especially for how crappy they play on the road. Mets in 4.

    Cards vs. Pads

    Cards have stunk for a month, and their closer is hurt. Pads in 4.

    Pads pitching > Mets = Pads in Series

    AL
    Tigers vs. Yankees

    Tigers are a buncha rookies, and c'mon, it's the Yankees. Yanks in 5.

    A's vs. Twins

    Twins pitching is too much, and they are almost unbeatable at home. Twins sweep.

    Twins finally beat the Yanks in postseason

    Pads/Twins World Series...could go either way. I pick the Twins.

    You and me both. My Astros made it interesting just enough to hurt at the end.

    Here's my stab at things:

    ALCS: Twins/Yankees ---> Twins
    NLCS: Padres/Dodgers---->Dodgers

    World Series: Twins/Dodgers--->Twins

    EDIT: Didn't know about Pedro's rotator cuff until I saw the news on PTI tonight. So long Mets.

    That was a "you're welcome" left over from last year's postseason. Enjoy!

    I just hope for the twins lose, mainly so I dont have to watch a week of Twins Tributes on TV.

    In all seriousness, it's a bit unusual to see an NL postseason without the Braves. How long has it been....11-12 years?

    As long as the Yankee's lose I'll be happy. I'd love to see the Tigers win it all though.

    A's - Tigers ALCS is great for baseball, every none yankees/red sox fan is so sick of seeing them in the playoffs every year. It's nice to see a bunch of non-houselhold names playing to make a name.

    A's over Tigers in 6. Big Hurt = ALCS MVP, figuratively tea-bagging the White Sox management upon acceptance

    I will take him in Boston anytime. what about the other 8 players? what about the Yanks pitching? What about when A-Rod had about 12 hits in 3 games vs the Sox in the '04 ALCS? I will never understand the Yankee fan.

    Detroit needs to keep Verlander, Bonderman, and Robertson long term. could be the next Maddux, Glavine, Smoltz trio.

    Don't forget Zumaya. The dude is barely legally old enough to drink, and scared the sh*t out of the Yanks with his 103 MPH fastball (with placement) in cold weather.

    Let's not forget they signed the best pitcher in all of college baseball. He would've been the #1 pick had he not been so difficult for most teams to sign....ie....huge $$$

    I wish the salary cap was lower. I even feel that the Tigers overspent on Ordonez and Pudge. Just calling it how I see it. That said, GO TIGERS!!

    salary cap in baseball = maximum before luxury tax penalty kicks in. Maj knows that.

    I also felt Pudge was overpaid. He is a fantastic catcher, but his offense has declined with age.

    "I will take him in Boston anytime. what about the other 8 players? what about the Yanks pitching? What about when A-Rod had about 12 hits in 3 games vs the Sox in the '04 ALCS? I will never understand the Yankee fan."

    I will never understand people who lack literacy.

    Did I say that he's entirely to blame for the loss? NO. A-rod, despite what you've posted, is stastistically one of the worst post season hitters of all time with RISP and the WORST post season hitter with RISP and 2 outs. These aren't exaggerations, these are truths.

    The only yankees who did well hitting in this series are posada and jeter, of course thats expected because they're from the dynasty years. Wright pitched terrible. Anemic offense. Another epic yankee collapse.

    I hope the yankees keep Arod and he does better in the next post season.

    using the word "clutch" usually means they were actually still IN the ballgame, which they werent.

    and what are his career postseason stats? from what I gather, his last 8 postseason appearances(not counting this one), he has 31 games in which he has batted .305, 6 HRs, 16 RBIs, 19Rs.

    Did you watch the game?

    These are stats fed to us during the game. I actually have no idea where you can find postseason only stats. They're only for the yankees though. If you include his previous years he's much better.

    I think he's 0/16 with RISP and 2 outs and he's 4/24 with RISP and less than two outs.

    Part of being clutch is hitting with RISP, because if you do that you can actually get INTO a game.
