Well it is official, the Bombers reign on the AL East came to an end Friday evening.
The first round games are set: Yanks at Cleveland, Angels at Boston. These 4 teams are the best in the league, and don't see an edge one way or the other for any of them. It'll be good, hard baseball.
Nothing like a little seed of doubt heading into the October tourney as Mo blows a save, and Giambi is ice cold at the plate.
I would like to see Pettitte get the starting nod in game 1 of the Divisional round.
Game 1 Line Up: Damon (LF), Jeter, Abreu, A-Rod, Matsui, Posada, Cano, Mientkiwicz, Cabrera
I still do not believe that Clemens will be strong enough to make a start - look for him to be the hero by becoming Mr. Bullpen.
On the Mets - I'm simply in a state of disbelief; to lose the division lead with two to go would kill me as a fan if it happened to my team, and by the looks on the faces at Shea, has killed many of their fans. A cleaning of the house is a given, and that is the kind of thing that sets a franchise back 5 to 10 years before we hear from them again.
I've changed my mind on the NL MVP race. Due to the disrespect that Fielder is showing to his old man, I think that has turned off several would be voters. Look for it to go to Matt Holiday of the Rockies or a Philley in Utley, Rollins, or Rowand.
Hope Solo - is not a bad teammate the way the PC drenched media is making her out to be. At the end of the day, soccer is a competitive sport. It can't always be about minivans and camp, it has to be about winning. Because of that, Hope is not a bad teammate, she is the best teammate because she wants to win.
