Not much in the way of reports, but my guess is the kid was lying to the Twins again saying he's better than he really was.  Heart's in the right place but not so much his brain.  I know he's just trying to help, but let it heal kid. 

Even if it's not bad, my guess is unless they go deep in the playoffs he's done for the year :'(  And he might be done for the year regardless, depending on how bad it was.  Yahoo is reporting he threw a really low pitch and slumped over on the mound clutching his arm.  Buh-bye.

From what I've read he's done for the year and may be headed to Tommy John land...and the Yankees breath a sigh of relief >:(

Where's Colman? 

I thought for sure he would have posted in here yesterday, to tell us about the amazing Dodgers comeback against the Padres the other night, with back-to-back-to-back-to-back homers in the bottom of the ninth to tie it up, and then the come-from-behind, winning home-run from No-mah in extra innings. . .

JediMAC doesn't bother with that anymore, because he fears my responses.

That and today he knows it would have been too late to post it since they turned right around and gave up the division lead again to the Padres last nite ::)

If the Mets didn't just roll through whoever makes the NL playoffs anyhow, and get to the World Series (against the Yankees), I'd be pretty surprised.

The Padres got totally rump wrangled in the first round last year, and I'd expect more of the same would happen when the Dodgers or Padres, whoever it is, runs into the Mets this year.

The playoffs have Yankees/Mets Part II written all over it this year.

I generally agree although I wouldn't be suprised if either team blew it and didn't make it to the series either. I don't think the national league west team will suprise anyone.

If Liriano would have stayed healthy, I might have to disagree with you on that,

As it stands now, I'd really like to see the Twins manage to win the Central so we can play Oakland instead of NY in the first round.  That way, Mauer/Morneau and the rest of the guys who haven't been to the playoffs would get thier playoff jitters out of the way in Oakland before having to roll into Yankee stadium and face that kind of atmosphere.

Santana/Silva/Garza/Bonser can beat Oakland in a 5 games series, but going against the Yankees with our current pitching mess would be... well, worrysome.   :-\

Mmmmm not convinced.  Harden is back tomorrow.  Rich Harden, Danny Haren, Joe Blanton is every bit as good as Santana, Silva, Garza, if not better.  If Liriano was in, and Radke, I'd agree with you.  It's likely a 3 man rotation in round 1.

Well, at least Santana won't have to pitch to Ortiz in the playoffs...he should be relieved about it :P


That was a crushed ball last nite.

Congrats to the Twins fans in the audience.  What fun it is to be a Royals fan and watch two opposing teams clinch playoff berths on consecutive nights.  :)  While I'm bummed the White Sox didn't make it, it is nice to see the Tigers make such a turn from two years ago and to see the Twins' resurgence from their early record.  At this point I'm rooting for the Twins and Cards in the World Series (though no one knows what the hell is going to happen in the NL yet).

5.  Sheffield, 1B
6.  Matsui, LF
7.  Abreu, RF
8.  Cano, 2B
9.  Posada, C


And they've beaten his ass before  :)

Which is why I'm still holding out hope for a Detroit stumble that allows us to win the AL Central.  I said it before, but hosting the As in the first round sounds a lot better to me than heading to Yankee Stadium to kick things off. 

I'd much rather all of our young guys got their first playoff experience in the friendly confines of the Dome rather then Yankee Stadium.  Plus, I still think some combination of Santana/Bonser/Silva/Garza can beat Oakland (especially with our Dome field advantage). 

Versus the Yankees though?  Even if you forget Santana for a minute (I have faith in him), that Yankee line-up (with lots of playoff experience) could be a lot of trouble for our playoff virgin/rookie pitchers like Bonser or Baker or Garza.

Eh, anyway you look at it, it's nice to just have my squad back in the playoffs especially after the slow start and all the pitching staff injuries they've had to weather this year.  (And, to a lesser extent, it's nice to see the White Sox out of it :P)

AL East Champion New York Yankees vs. Wild Card Tigers or Twins

AL West Champion Oakland Athletics vs. Tigers or Twins

NL East Champion New York Mets vs. Wild Card Phillies, Padres or Dodgers

NL Central Champion St. Louis Cardinals or Houston Astros vs. Padres or Dodgers

The Phillies, if they win the WC, won't play the Mets.  Even if it's best team vs. worst team (which will probably be the case), WC winners don't play division rivals in the first round.
