Tough call. The Giants have to win this year, because they aren't getting any older. Yet, the Angels may have to win this year too since there could be an ownership changes and we all know what that can do to a ballclub.

Potential for a great series though; I say Angels in six.

Of course I be biased as an Angels fan, but I was praying for this matchup. I love that the Wild Card teams are the ones in the World Series. You have to feel for Fox though, as they will get huge ratings in California, but not much elsewhere. St. Louis will be too pissed to watch it. Same for New York. Then again, who can resist watching the "BATTLE OF THE THUNDERSTICKS!!!"

I'll take the Angels in 5.

That's either really deep or not what you meant to type.

By definition, isn't everybody getting older every second of every day?

The thing I like about this match-up as a Giants fan is that there will likely be many Giants fans down there in Anaheim cheering for the Giants, so it may sound like Giant-Dodger games in LA where it almost sounds like the crowd is cheering for the Giants. Should be a hella fun series to watch.

I'll take Giants in 6.

Twins in Six.


Ahhhhh, shit. :(

(edited by Jaguar on 15.10.02 1839)

With poison running through your veins, and death marching solemnly towards you, heroic acts become more of a necessity as you see your time dwindling.

Vanquishing your enemies, making amends to those you have wronged, and leaving words of love and kindness for those around you become second nature as your own mortality looms

However, true strength lies not in these last desperate acts, but in the actions of one who has to get out of bed the next day and face the consequences of doing that which you believe is right.

Angels haven't lost at home all postseason, first games in Anaheim. Angels have dropped first game in each series and then swept. When trends collide! God, now I have to go into bitter Red Sox fan mode...Version 3. ::invents new Matt Hardy-esque pose:: Go American League! Go American League!

Angels in 6.

Benoit & Angle vs. Eddie & Chavo. There is no way in hell that this could possibly suck.

I predict Angels in 6, and another interruption via earthquake, as in 1989.

Seriously, I think it's great that it's a California series, and a wild-card series.

Angels in 5. Bonds gets one night to shine and the scrappy band of misfits blows him out of the water after that. You gotta love a team that has your kid brother's annoying friend on it. Or am I the only one who sees that in Eckstein?

I hope the Angels win, very decisively.

One, they've never been here before, so I'd love to see them win a World Championship.

Two, they've been so bad for so long.

Three, Barry Bonds is a jerk.

Add me into the "Angels in 6" club. I was at the ALCS clincher last Sunday and I have NEVER seen a baseball crowd like that EVER in Southern California and that includes the year the Padres made it to the big dance. Angels have far too much momentum to be stopped now and I don't even think the mighty power of Barry can contain them.

I'm personally salivating over the inevitable matchup between Big Barry and our resident phenom, Francisco Rodriguez.

I also say Giants in four.

Bonds gets less than ten offical at bats.

Halos in 7.

And am I the only one that hates the damn rally monkey? I mean, I like the Angels, I'm rooting for them, but that damn monkey sucks. However, that kid dressed up as the monkey was pretty funny, even if his dad made him do it and scarred him for life. I laughed.

Barry Bonds may be an asshole, but Michael Eisner's a bigger one.

Angels/Giants? How did this happen? You mean that baseball season didn't actually end with the Yankees losing and MLB kept playing games? WTF? Why?
