    I think this is the time for the Twins to finally slay the Yankees in postseason play. I'm not confident in my thinking to say that they dogged it to get the Wild Card, but I think they are more comfortable playing the Twins then the Rangers and I really feel that their arrogance in not playing well down the stretch run for the division will cripple them in thinking they can just turn it on come the playoffs.

    That and I think it would hilarious to see Carl Pavano be instrumental in the Twins victory in the postseason over the Yankees.
    While I prefer to play the Twins, I don't think the Yankees dogged it to get them. Neither them or the Rays played well down the stretch. The Twins and Rangers didn't really either. Going all out to win the division isn't as important as getting their guys right. WC teams win all the time.

Playing by arbitrary rules that can't be enforced won't help the Mets compete. They need to get the star talent that's out there by going above slot. There are players who can be bought out of college falling to the 5th round who are big bargains. Other teams are doing this and being rewarded. Why would the Mets not do this?
      Like I said since Wilpon is good friends with Selig he listens to him when it comes to overslotting. Do I agree with it? Hell no it's a ridiculous practice that gets absolutely nothing in return.

      • They need to fix the WC system. They need a bigger incentive for the team that wins the division.

        • Manager talk...I still hope the Braves get Fredie Gonzalez. The job was supposed to be his in Atlanta one day anyway, and his release was rather timely. It seems like it's going to happen, but you never know what may happen...the Cubs talk scared me for a while, but he turned down the chance to interview for the gig. Making a deal with ATL almost inevitable.
          It's probably only between Fredi and Terry Pendleton, and those two have been my favorites for the job for years. So I should be happy, regardless. But I want Fredi. Should happen.

          • I am hoping for a rematch of 91 world series to tell u the truth. Or the matchup between the central division winners. Unfortanately, I see the Braves, Reds, and Twins all losing in the first round.

            • I'm hoping for Rangers/Giants so I can go to the games.

              • PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS

                Rangers 3, Rays 1
                -I don't trust Garza and Shields at all and Cliff Lee will be starting the other game (or two games). The Rays offense is also pretty hit-or-miss.

                Yankees 3, Twins 0
                -CC out-duels Liriano and the Yankees lefties feast on Baker and Pavano.

                Phillies 3, Reds 1
                -The Reds will steal one, but Philly is more talented, experienced and has the best pitcher in the world.

                Braves 3, Giants 1
                -I really want the Giants to win but something tells me the Braves get timely hitting and quality pitching to dominate the Giants. I hope I'm wrong.

                Rangers 4, Yankees 3
                -A classic series ends in a 13th inning walk-off HR by Nelson Cruz.

                Phillies 4, Braves 2
                -The Braves win two but it's not really even that close.

                Phillies 4, Rangers 1
                -Too much Doc, the Rangers are drained from the Yankees series.

                MVP: Roy Halladay

                        For those of us who don't really care, perhaps posting the names would be of help.

                            Thanks. Hopefully we are in it for more than a week for once.

                            I heard a rumor that Terry Ryan is interested in the Mets GM job, but that's just talk. Would be interesting though.

                            • I truly believe just bringing Doc to the playoffs was all he needed and he will do the rest.

                              • I've heard we're interested in Ryan but he doesn't really have the passion to GM again unless it's a really special situation. Hearing that I don't really want to beg someone to be our GM if he doesn't have the heart to do so. I'm most interested in Logan White and Dan Jennings.
