I was so bummed to see that the Giants didn't make it. Even though I haven't really watched a game all year (except for the occasional Braves game or two), I still will always feel like they're "My team" no matter how they do. Towards the middle of this year, I was even dreaming of a Giants/Mariner's series so I could see a game or two.

Oh well, I guess now that they're out....I'll have to root for their Bay Area breathren, the A's.....even though I'd rather see the Cubs and Sox make it, just for history's sake. Doesn't look like that will happen.

The Braves totally sucked.  I hope Chicago goes the distance (now that the Braves are out).  :'(

Nice run for the Twins, better pitching won out in the end as always.  Which is why a Yankees-Cubs series is probably on the horizon.

I'll be pulling for the Yankees...even though 95% of the US hates them, I still like them and admire their excellence, plus I hate Chicago sports teams :-*

Well, we'll see if the Cubs can get by the fish.  I am a cautious fan and still have that feeling the Cubs will break my heart again someway, somehow.  However, I kind of feel the Yanks/Cubs series might be coming.  You just KNOW Fox wants that series for the ratings.  That or a Red Sox/Cubs series.  

GO CUBS!!!

CUBS WIN!!!  CUBS WIN!!! CUBS WIN!!!

HOLY COW!!!  I can't believe it!  CUBS WIN!!!

:)

Holy crap!  That's beautiful man!  (sorry chuckles!)  I hadn't even caught any scores from last night since we were out with friends, and totally brainfarted on checking them this morning.  That's great.  I'm really happy for them.  Both underdogs advance in the NL.  Fun times!  I'm really pulling for the Cubbies now!  Too bad it ain't gonna be a Sammy/Dusty showdown against Barry Bonds though.  But I guess eliminating the Giants at any point is better than not at all (sorry Josh!  :-*)...  Those once formidable Atlanta bats choked BIG TIME, as they often do in the crunch of playoff time...

Still hope to see the Sox squeek one out too!  No excuse not to, with Pedro on the mound!   8)

My condolences to Scott and Brent as well!   :-\

Holy crap again!  Red Sox win!!!  8)

Awesome.  Sox vs. Yankees.  That's gonna be fun!  And Bucky Dent ain't around no more...   :P  Rough week for the Bay Area - Giants out, A's out, Raiders get spanked by the hapless Bears...  :-\

Sorry Nick, but I'm rootin' for a Sox/Cubs Series all the way!  That would just be absolutely incredible, and great for baseball too.  Sammy vs. Pedro...  :)

Well, if there was a Sox-Cubs World Series, somehow I think both teams would find a way to lose.  Seriously.

The test starts tomorrow night.  The biggest question for me is who's starting game one for Boston.  I'm pretty secure in the Yanks starting pitching after the Division Series.  Most people are saying either Wakefiled or Burkett.  Well, the Yanks have rocked both of them on a number of occassions.  I see this being a 5 or 6 game series.

As for the National League, I'm pulling for the Cubbies.  But once it gets to the World Series, if the Yanks are still in it, I think everyone knows where my loyalties lie.

What a game!  A little tense at the end, but the boys pulled it off.  It was a little scary with Johnny Damon and Damian Jackson colliding in the seventh, but early reports are it was a concussion and he should be ready to go in the ALCS.  Bring on the Yankees.

That was one fantastic game!!  I'm very happy that the Sox's won and I'm glad that he only had a slight concussion.  I wonder what that fan said to the players though that got his sorry-ass dragged out by security?  (not that he didn't deserve it, I'm sure).

Oh, and the Sox players with the Lilly things on their jackets were the picture of classy baseball?  Please.

Expect the Sox to start Wakefield in Game 1, Lowe in Game 2 and Pedro in Game 3 in Boston. As for the Yanks rocking Wakefield this season I seem to recall the Sox rocking Clemens, Wells and Mussina at least once each as well. The key matchup will be game 2 with Petitte vs. Lowe.
