Man oh man, let me first state that I just had my dinner (crow stew) and there is more than enough left for sandwiches this week at work.

Talk about a disaster. Did Rivera even pitch? Oy, what Yankee pitcher DIDN'T suck ass?

Talk about no clutch hitting - I have it on the radio in the 8th, Posada up, one run in on a wild pitch, Giambi on third, Bernie on 2B, 3-1 to Jorge....if he walks and Mondesi hits one out, hey wow, 9-8. I go in to pick up a pizza, come out.....9-4.

It is the sour grapes talking, but baseball season officially ended today.

Let me also take my hat off to the Angels. Eckstein, Garrett, Darrin, Glaus, Salmon, and that 20-year old releif pitcher who was friggin throwing peas...that is a no-shit team. I think that the Yanks played like ass, and that even their lone win in the series left a sour taste. That fact stated, the Angels won not only because the Yanks poor play, but because they played incredibly.

Yeah, that was a tough one to take today. I just hope that Oakland doesn't get out of the first round either. Twins-Angels would be a fun series.

What a wonderful day it is. Can't wait to see the headlines in the Post for this one. Smart money right now is on Nick Johnson being run out of town by the Boss, since he choked twice in the clutch in the last three innings.

Damn. I lost a bet and the team got beaten in the Divisional freaking Playoffs.




OK, that needs to be clarified. I bet a friend of mine that if the Red Sox got farther into the playoffs than the Yankees, he would have to wear a Red Sox shirt for 24 hours, but if it goes the other way, I have to wear a Yankees shirt. Now he's got his nice little Alfonso Sucksaloto shirt for me to wear and the Yankees just lost. Hey, the Yankees lost! WAHOO!

So the Yankees lost....HA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! wait a minute...let me compose myself....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I'm sorry, but this couldn't happen to a nicer team. The best team money can buy apparenly couldn't figure out to pull David "I fucked the White Sox over oh so bad" Wells out while he was getting shelled and maybe put in Weaver. you remember Weaver, the starter you had to trade for so he could languish in the pen? And can we now begin to say that Jason Giambi is to playoff baseball as Ted McGinley is to tv shows? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, that just slipped out there.

Only downside to the Yanks losing in the first round is now all my rooting interest is gone, as generally come playoff time I root for whomever the Yanks play each round. Now there's no one to hold my interest the same way. Go Twinkies I guess.

You could always cheer for the cardinals... except your from chicago... so nevermind.

Darn the luck.. the yankees are out! I didn't pay too much attention to the series... but are the Angels that good? Good enough to beat a team on a roll like the cardinals?

Now is that properly served as sandwiches with peanut butter & jelly? :-) lol

Make sure you add enough pepper and seasoning to the stew to take the bitterness out.

Now that the rubbish(the Yankees) are out of it, we can just enjoy good, hard baseball the rest of the way.

Would be nice to see the Cardinals win the Series though...

I say if it can't be my beloved Yankees, (and evidently it can't) that the Twinkies should take it all, and stick it to the jagoff Selig.

More than good enough. Which isn't to say that the Cards couldn't win also.

I wanna see the Twins and Angels in the World Series!

Who wins there isn't really the point. If the Angels win, great for them! They've been suffering long enough. If the Twins win, they can all do D-X crotch chops and tell Selig to suck it!

Yay!

One minor problem, both are in the American League, so both can't be in the World Series.

Actually, PBJ&E goes well with broiled crow sauteed in a most delightful brandy sauce.

I have been moping all day, but I guess since I can't root for the Angels, and I have no reason to like the Twins ('cept if they win it all, I could have said "Bah, my Yanks beat those chumps 6 of 6 in the season), I will let my money ride on the great Tino Bambino. I hate LaRussa, I was never a Kile fan, I can't stand JD Drew or Edmonds....



...but Constantino Martinez is second on my list behind the immortal Donnie Baseball. I ain't gonna watch, but go Tino!

Yeah, it's funny... as soon as the Twins advanced, I realized they were going to the ALCS and I immediately thought, “Damn, I'm stupid.” LOL...

So barring that, hmmmm... Braves-Angels or Braves-Twins. I don't particularly care for either the Cardinals or the Giants. Although daaamn, if Mark McGuire were still around, it would've been cooler than all hell to see his team take on Barry Bonds' team to decide the National League champion.

If the Braves don't make it to the World Series, I'll root for the AL team.

I guess we were a little premature in discussing the finer points of the A's-Yankees series....

Now who do I cheer against!!! Well, the Braves are still alive I guess...

Oh glorious day, the Angels have won a divisional series...FINALLY. And they beat the Yanks.

BTW, don't count the Giants out. They looked great yesterday and they have all the tools to win tonight in game 5.

Angels/Cards in the World Series! For the love of God, let it be!
