MLP 2K5 Playoff edition

What the hell happened to the baseball thread? Did it hit 500 and get moved? I just spent half an hour looking for it, I thought I was going crazy.

It sucks the Indians choked so bad, would have been nice to see new blood in the playoffs. But I'm sure we'll see Yankees/Red Sox Pt 3 in the ALCS

I've got a very bad feeling about the Cardinals, a first round loss to the Padres could be devestating, yet I could see it happening.

Oh well, let the games begin...

By the way, the Astros unveiled a banner today saying "Back to Back Wildcard Champions." Does anybody else find this a little odd? By winning a wildcard what exactly are you a champion of? It's like chanting, we're #2!!

Also today was the last regular season game in Busch stadium. So many memories there, it will be missed

The Angel/Yankee series is going to be tough. I expect it to go to the last out of the 5th game. Both teams are playing well.

About home field advantage: I think home field advantage in and of itself means almost nothing in the Angel/Yankee playoff. What might be slightly advantageous to the Angels in this series is that their players are pretty well rested and they've got their pitching staff lined up just the way they want it, while the Yankees haven't had a chance to catch a breath and they presumably had to get on a plane today and fly to L.A.

Nevertheless, the Yankees have a more imposing lineup than the Angels, they're playing with confidence and they aren't going to roll over for anyone.

Should be a helluva series.

peavy would have to win twice in the serise against st louis and then somebody else on that otherwise poor staff would have to beat the redbirds.

dont see it happening.

stop it with you and your badfeelings too, it cost us last year when you said you had a bad feeling the cardinals were gonna win the NL and lose to the red sox in the world series.

The White Sox pitching has got to step it up, especially out of the bull pen. I'm glad they're not playing the Angels. They can't seem to beat teams on the West Coast.

Can't Be Afraid of a team when you win more then they did

I think Sox-Sox will be a great series to watch

I think it will go to game five with the sox pulling out on top

Additionally, the Angels plan a fan-fest appreciation of sorts starting Monday, at 5 pm..meaning, if the Yankees get into town later this evening, they'll have to turn around and hit the field early tomorrow morning for their workouts since the Angels have the park from 5 until 8 pm...

That lack of rest time might be crucial for the first two games. Angels in 4.

Honestly, I think any of the remaining teams in the AL could go all the way. And I hope the White Sox beat the living crap out of the bosox....but that's just me.

the al will not win the world series this year. its either going to be st louis or houston.

i dont think any AL team matches up well against those two.

did you see Al Reyes is most likely out for the postseason? on the last day of the season we lose our most effective releiver. what is it with cardinals and playoff injuries? it's ridiculous, it seriously happens every year.

Carp/Mulder can pitch 4 out of the 5 games in the NLDS, so hopefully they will pitch to their abilities and that should be enough. Houston/Atl should be an interesting series.

Yeah, I might make it down there if I can get away from work early enough.

no i didnt see that. tavarez and king will just have to step it up a bit.

i think this team is good enough to overcome that though. sanders has looked pretty good recently and it seems that walker is starting to heat up at the right time too. as long as the pitching stays true...

thats the key. they have been lit up for the past month. our only good pitcher has been suppan yet tony wont even start him. there is no way morris should start ahead of suppan, but he will, and we will lose that game. its sickening.
