As hard as it is to stomach given the team he's playing for, I would love to see Ichiro! win a WS before he retires

Would like to see Detroit beat the Yankees, not just cuz I'm a Red Sox fan but... well ya ok cuz I'm a Red Sox fan.

Go Detroit!

The Nats were the team I was rooting for and since they are out at least I still have the Yankees to root against. And honestly, F the Nats GM for shutting down Strasburg, I'm confidant they would have won the series if they hadn't done that. It ruined a great year for 25 other guys. There's no guarantee next year they make it again either.

I'm with the majority who think the remaining four are ho-hum. Oak, Bal, Cin and Was were more interesting stories.

This schedule is so dumb. So the Yankees finish with the best record in the AL and yet they are the ones that get no day off between series and now have to decide whether to use Kuroda on short rest in game 2 and Sabathia on short rest in game 3, just to keep their rotation in order...or else throw a guy like Phelps into the fire in game 2 and not have Sabathia until game 4? So dumb. What would it have hurt to make today an off-day and start both series tomorrow? Anyone? Bueller?


That said, let's go Yankees. Hopefully Pettitte comes up big tonight.

that's crazy talk. The Nat's were up by two, with two outs and two strikes in the 9th. They blew it. The other 24 guys. Not The GM, not Straus … they have nobody to blame but themselves.

That wasn't the only at-bat of the series. There were literally dozens more in which Stras could have directly affected the outcome.

The A's also wouldn't have needed to play game 5 if they had won game 2, when an over-used Grant Balfour had a predictable 9th inning meltdown after pitching 5 consecutive days to finish off the regular season.

So yeah, these teams COULD have won despite their mistakes, just like they COULD have won every game by 10 runs. They also COULD be golfing in mid-October because of bad decisions.
