This isn't a topic about arguing who is better or who is going to win or anything like that, just wanted to say that upfront.

Anyway, I was going to ESPN.com to see what time the Braves and Mets games this week started so that I could be sure to catch them on TBS or Turner South, but when I looked them up I realized that all three games in the series are scheduled to come on ESPN. I don't think they usually show all three game of a series, they'll usually switch out their games more than that.

I know the Dodgers and Giants have had a long rivalry, but there isn't really any excitement there other than Bonds. I know the Redsox and Yankees hate each other but the Redsox are never close in the standings, although they do beat them head to head some (like they are now).

So my question is has the Braves vs. Mets become the biggest division rival matchup? Or do I just get that feeling because i'm in Braves land.

Check the standings, sucka. The Yankees are languishing in second place by a cool half-game, since the Sox took two out of three. And that was some fine baseball, with three of those games being very hotly contested. Yankees suck. Boo yah.



Do I lie to myself to be happy? In your case, Teddy, I think I can.

Marge: Mr. Scorpio, this house is almost too good for us. I keep expecting to get the bums rush.
Scorpio: We don't have bums in our town, Marge, and if we did, they wouldn't rush, they'd be allowed to go at their own pace.

Yes I realize that, in fact I picked the Redsox to win the East but they have not been close to the Yankees for years now before this year.

Yes, the Yankees will be eating the dust of the Red Sox from here on out (hopefully), but the bigger question regarding ESPN covering the entire Braves/Mets series is why? They play each other 19 times, do we need to see them on ESPN for an entire series? I can accept once a series because it is a rivalry game, but there was no need to have all three. There are 30 teams, and most of the games this past weekend and whether or not they all had the meaning of the Brave/Mets series, I see nothing wrong with exposing casual baseball fans to some teams they don't regularly watch. Don't forget for 2 of the games aired on ESPN they were also on TBS, so most of the viewing audience had the option of watching the same game on two national stations. I'm not going to keep rambling on about this, but I don't think I'm alone on this... am I?

Well, they beat a team in the NLDS that led the NL West, then they were down 3-1 in the series facing the two best pitchers in the MAJORS IN WRIGLEY FIELD and beat both of them. Fluke? I think not.
