Official SPL/MLB Divisional Series Thread...

Here are my filters for the baseball playoffs.

Top priority: Yankees not only lose, but they choke.

Teams I like alot: Phillies, Red Sox, Indians

Teams I have no like or dislike for: Rockies, Angels, D-Backs.

The X Factor: The Cubs. I haven't felt any attachment to them this summer, but I have in the past. If they start winning, then I will jump on the bandwagon.


MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

There is one team that will be victorious and it is from New York, and I can't wait to hear you sissies when you come up with these gems - "Oh, with their payroll they just did what they were supposed to do", "It's not fair", "The Yankmees suck", etc, etc.

They will win it for George this year - you know, that owner that all you dicks wish you had, and the one that actually reinvests his money back into the team.
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack!!!!!
Loser?
I didn't lose anything. I'm not a member of the NY Mets. The team sucked, they tanked, they blew it. I'm disappointed. But I take no responsibility, nor do I rise and fall on what the Mets do.

Just like if the Yankees win, you'll still be a dick.
Just when they think they have all the answers, I come and change all the questions.

This isn't a football thread and for the most part if you took the time to read those, I agreed with most of the stuff said regarding the local football squad.
I was pissed when I saw the lineup...

When Utley broke his hand, Burrell got hot...Charlie decided it was a good idea to move Burrell to the 3 hole.

So when Utley returns, he bats Utley 2nd against lefties and Burrell 3rd.

Today the lineups are announced and I see he has Utley in the 3 spot with Burrell batting 6th.

If it wins you a Division Title, why fuck with it?

Now, the home plate umpire, was he not just awful for both sides, or what?
I am not usually one to go off on that shit, but the 3rd strike to Howard was horsecrap. That being said, he probably would have swung and missed at the next pitch anyway.

If Rollins doesn't do anything early this team is cooked. Rockies did a nice job of keeping 1-4 locked down today, deserved it and we'll just try and get it back tomorrow.

Still think this thing is gonna go 5.

Was he not the 2003 WS MVP?


That's a meaningless stat overall. Quite a few mediocre players have won this.

Does the mediocrity start in 1981?
Speedball...
Your baseball posts the last few days have sucked. If someone woke out of a time bubble and read your posts they would think that no wild card team has ever won a playoff series and that there was no World Series MVP after 1980.

Here's the rest of the list...

1981 Ron Cey, Pedro Guerrero, Steve Yeager Los Angeles Dodgers
1982 Darrell Porter St. Louis Cardinals
1983 Rick Dempsey Baltimore Orioles
1984 Alan Trammell Detroit Tigers
1985 Bret Saberhagen Kansas City Royals
1986 Ray Knight New York Mets
1987 Frank Viola Minnesota Twins
1988 Orel Hershiser Los Angeles Dodgers
1989 Dave Stewart Oakland Athletics
1990 Jos? Rijo Cincinnati Reds
1991 Jack Morris Minnesota Twins
1992 Pat Borders Toronto Blue Jays
1993 Paul Molitor Toronto Blue Jays
1994
No World Series
1995 Tom Glavine Atlanta Braves
1996 John Wetteland New York Yankees
1997 Liv?n Hern?ndez Florida Marlins
1998 Scott Brosius New York Yankees
1999 Mariano Rivera New York Yankees
2000 Derek Jeter New York Yankees
2001 Johnson, Schilling Arizona Diamondbacks
2002 Troy Glaus Anaheim Angels
2003 Josh Beckett Florida Marlins
2004 Manny Ram?rez Boston Red Sox
2005 Jermaine Dye Chicago White Sox
2006 David Eckstein St. Louis Cardinals

Care to argue that Scott Brosius, or even Ray Knight to dispel any notion of favoritism, is a stellar player?

God fucking damn I said just for fun. Even you could have figured I was cherry picking a list to piss you off.

Guess not

WTF is a time bubble? Even if they did, before they went in, there was no such thing as the wild card so there.

Oh and 2 mediocrties out of the 25 years there. Oh, you WERE right. Shit, I'll even give you Yeager, Eckstein and Borders
Philly looks like they've rolled over and died...of course, the announcers aren't helping. It sounds like they're commentating on paint drying. TBS is awful! And so are those Dane Cook commercials...couldn't he go sell out somewhere else?
Ugh!

Still don't know why he took the starter out (you can save the he sucks stuff)

Still don't understand why Joe Table was on the post-season roster, much less the regular season roster.

Well it was a fun year and we kept the Mets out of the play-offs, for that the Phils should be thanked, sort of, maybe.
