Let's see what Thursday holds.   I can't believe we have to wait that long for game 2.

I'll post this once per page and keep updating it so it is handy...

I am still not total believer, but a split is what the Twins wanted...Game 3 worries me, I think the Yanks will win Thursday and then having Lohse picthing in such a big game is a little dicey, I would have put out the Gambler...

Well the Cubs pulled it out last night.  I was wondering what would happen when Wood could not go any longer.  It turned out great.  Although I was pacing all over the first floor between innings and ads.  They have given themselves life in the series at least.  I am really glad they avoided a sweep.  It just sucks to make the playoffs and then get swept away in 3 straight games.

Yeah it was great game, if you were an A's fan :'(  It was a hearbreaker to say the least.  I have no idea what Grady Little is thinking.  Too much rotation in the pitching if you ask me.

I watched a fair ammount of the A's-Red Sux game.  Too bad I missed the end :(

Glad the Marlins won!  :)  Too bad Atlanta did, too. :(  They've just monopolized the postseason over the past 12 years.  It makes the Yankees look not quite so bad.

As for tonight...LET'S GO YANKEES!

That was a great game last night and goes to show how one stupid mistake can turn into three runs rather easily.  I'm impressed at how well the Twins played, hopefully Dome Field Advantage will translate into 2 W's

Radke and Pettite both pitched great games.  I'm surprised that a hit batsman turned into a rally, too.  But I'm not knocking the win, by any means.

GIANTS ELIMINATED!!   8)  As a Dodgers fan, I hate the dreaded rival Giants, not to mention I despise Barry Bonds, so I was absolutely overjoyed to see them get spanked again tonight by the Fish!  In the words of our future governer...  Hasta la vista, baby. (said with Ahnold's accent  :P)

Not as thrilled with how the rest of the series are going though, since those underdogs aren't quite doing as well as I had hoped...   :-\  Some big games coming up!  Come on Cubbies!  Sox have a ways to go to pull this one out, but hopefully they do just that.  Twinkies are in trouble though.  I just don't want to see another Yankees/Braves World Series...   :-\

Glad to see the Marlins advance to the NLCS.  It's great to see a wild card team make it that far.

I was on the edge of my seat late last night, watching the end of the Cubs/Braves game.  What a finish!  When I saw Sammy Sosa do his homer hop, I thought that ball was outta there.  Where was that catch made, on the warning track?  A dramatic end if there ever was one.  I hope that the Cubs can cinch this one up in the next game.

And in Yankee news, I was happy as a clam to see them go into the Homer Dome and come out on top.  Clemens was great, and it was good to see the Yanks playing some little ball and advancing runners, as well as Godzilla's shot into the right field seats.  One more win, and the Yanks are headed to the ALCS!

As for the Red Sox, I'm kinda disappointed to read that the A's couldn't out them away last night.  Oh well, they're still up 2 games to 1 in that series.

Yeah another great game yesterday, what I thought true is happening, the Yanks staff is so much better than the Twins (minus Santana)...the Twins are intimidated especially by Mariano

I'm kinda surprised that the Twins didn't pinch hit for Doug Mankiewicz against Rivera.  He's killer against lefties.
