i dont know who your team is...and dont give damn either.
 
i find it reeeally funny that everyone hates on the Yankees and their fans for acknowledging that we have won 26 world championships. but when it comes to their own teams and specifically when they have defeated the Yankees...it always goes back to what your team did in the past. hypocritical much? yah. thatll be all. good night. oh yeah...please wipe your feet before you come into Yankee Stadium. we dont appreciate your filth. thanks!

Pretty extreme but definitely right.  The Yankees will have their hands full with the Angels who always give them fits.  But they are hands down the favorite thus far.  Though, the Cards' were suppose to shut down the Dodgers with their great staff and we know the rest.  You gotta love the baseball playoffs!

The Yanks have always had their problems with the Angels, but the Angels always had their problems with the Red Sox, so maybe it will change.

Not looking ahead, but the Yankees need to hit earlier in the game if they want to beat the Dodgers, if they get past the Angels.  The Dodgers bullpen is amazing.

Whatever Kate Hudson is doing, keep doing it.

Seriously, whatever she is doing, she needs to keep doing it.  It's working.

I hate to say it, but the Yankees are on a damn mission this year.  Yankees in six again.

These are the two best teams, I'm glad it worked out this way. Should be a great series.

I agree.  I always like it when the clearly best two teams make it.  That doesn't happen every year.

Agreed.  The Wild Card, while making things interesting, has made some not so good teams make the World Series.

I was never a fan of the WC, I'm of the opinion if you can't win your division you shouldn't be able to win a championship in pro sports.

Now with 4 4 team divisions, I think the Wild Card waters down the playoffs.  It makes the end of the regular season interesting (most of the time), but when 8-8 teams are making the playoffs it bothers me.


I could deal with the Wild Card in baseball if the Division Series were 7 games and not 5.

Hell, 8-8 teams win divisions in the NFL.  Do you really think that the Chargers last year deserved a spot over one of the AFC wildcard teams?

Dolphins won the division champ!  An 8-8 team got in over the 11-5 patriots though.

Just wanted to mess with you.


But yes, if you have divisions reward the division winners.  I understand the concept of the Wild Card, but if that is the case of everything, just have the top 6 teams from each Conference make the playoffs and scrap the division.

I don't mind the NFL set up at all.  I can understand your problem with the baseball wildcard, I just don't care about baseball.

Baseball.  Yes, it's fair, but personally, I'll pull for the KC Royals every time they play the Yanks/RedSox just for the heck of it.

An interesting question was raised about the Yankees this morning no Mike and Mike, didn't get to hear their answer, but I thought it'd be interesting to ask all of you.
 
With all of the $$ spent this past season, would a World Series victory not be as exciting? With that payroll, they SHOULD win the World Series. In years past, according to SWOLE, they won through the farm system and developing players.
 
So which is more exciting? Or are they as equally awesome?

I'm ok with 5, gives your top 2 guys 2 games to throw.

Need to shorten the reg season to 144 games or so.  Never gonna happen.

You can't buy much in sports.  A high payroll can pay to keep you in the playoff hunt, but it takes more than a high priced all star team to win when it counts.

So, IMO a high payroll can buy you a playoff spot, but it doesn't buy you anything come October.

Yet they have the most championships of any professional sports team.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.
