I can't imagine there were many prognosticators that correctly selected these two teams to be playing for the AL Championship this October.

Wow.

This should be a fun series and I am definitely pulling for whoever wins this series to beat whoever comes out of the NL.

Excellent. Now that the Yankees have been eliminated, I may become bitter Red Sox fan...Version 2. ::pulls in middle finger and does Matt Hardy-esque pose:: Those stupid Angels beat out my precious Sox! Go Twins!

Great pumpkin. Possibly another World Series in Minnesota with the AL holding home-field. I can't wait for a repeat of 1987 and 1991 where the home team wins every game.

GO ANGELS GO

I admit, I did take about 90 seconds to do my "The Oakland Athletics Suck Just As Much Ass As The Yanks" dance, and rejoiced in the solace that Eric Chavez can go fuck a duck.

I don't buy into this whole "Twins are a team of destiny" thing at all. If anything, I think the ANGELS are a team of destiny! We're playing for the memory of Cowboy Gene Autry! And we won't let the Twinkies stand in our way!

This is all on the road to the World Series, where we'll hopefully meet up with the St. Louis Cardinals. I'm intrigued at the thought of Jim Edmonds and Chuck Finley coming back to Anaheim for the first time since they were traded.

Wow, I remember the last time the Twinkies were this good. I was one year removed from my home state of Minnesota. That was a fun World Series, even if I had to watch it in another state. I need one that will stick in the memory a bit more.

Im a Twins fan and think they are indeed a team of destiny. Keep in mind they havent lost a playoff series in 30 years. I'd love to see that weasel Selig have to present the trophy to the team he tried to get rid of. Maybe MLB can contract his Brewers.

And I think the NL team will get the home field advantage in the Wordl series.

The Giants are a team of destiny because Barry Bonds needs to win it all before he turns 40 and Dusty Baker needs to prove himself as one of the best managers of the last decade.

The Cardinals are a team of destiny because Darryl Kile and Jack Buck died.

The Angels are a team of destiny because of their success despite a low payroll, Disney trying to rid themselves of them, and Gene Autry's memory.

The Twins are a team of destiny because MLB tried to contract itself, eliminating one of the AL's charter franchises and three-time World Champs.

This portends to be the lowest watched World Series in modern baseball TV history.

No East Coast team, a Twins team no one knows about, a Giants team led by a guy no one likes, the Angels (see Twins), and a team-concept group in the Cardinals.

I'm not saying it won't be fun to watch for real fans, it's just that no one East of Illinois will give a continental damn. (which is the least damn to give BTW)

I don't know, I'd think more people would care about San Fran-Anaheim or Minnesota-St. Louis than cared about New York-New York in '00. A change of scenery is good; witness the R*ms/Titans Super Bowl of a couple years ago that was higher rated than the past couple years.

The Rams were being touted as the greatest show on earth and had media mega-stars Warner and Faulk. Tough to compare that.

There are more Yankees fans than you think. Will West Coast games start at 7:30 ET or PT? Makes a HUGE difference in TV viewership.

Each World Series game, even in a San Fran-Anaheim series, will start at 8:30 et/5:30 pt. Fox sets the time, and late games would wreck their schedule.

So far, ratings are up 19% over last year; I hope the trend continues through the LCSs and WS.

I would think that the entire controversy over the possible contracting of the Minnesota Twins would push up ratings - especially if the Twins take the Series and make both Selig and Pohlad look like jackasses.

Now Selig says that he will come out of Pohlad's private skybox and sit in the crowd should the Twins reach the World Series. He had better bring bodyguards and a suit of armor.

The Twins are this year's Cinderella story. A bunch of no name punks who are fighting authority and playing a good game. That'll draw. I know there are a lot of Yankee's fans. I live in Madison, WI, and 50% of the people I know are Yankee's fans. But if I were to ask them who they'd like to see win the Series now, most of them would say the Twins.



Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)

Vikings (0-4) - Bye weeks are boring (round 2)
Badgers (5-1) - Congrats to Penn State. Time to rethink our defense.
Twins (1-0) - Mays looked like a million bucks. In short, our team's whole salary.
Buffy 7.2 earns a 8.8 Out of 10 for being the funniest episode since "Tabula Rasa" and without the dramatic ending. It might even have scored higher if my UPN's audio didn't cut out and I didn't have to watch it in closed captioning...

Whoever wins the World Series, it will be a happy ending, makeable into a Disney movie soon therafter.

Angels win - Disney owned underdogs and also a contraction candidate one year ago.

Twins win - Beezlebud handing the trophy to Pohlad would be such a happy ending, no?

Giants win - Barry Bonds life story can now be made into a movie since he has performed the greatest of individual feats and now has a WS ring.

Cardinals win - overcoming adversity with the loss of Darryl Kile to win one for the Gipper.

Yup, any of the scenarios can be the movie at your local theatre.
