    Major League Baseball's post-season games starts on Wednesday. How bad will the Phillies beat the Reds? In other games on wed., Rangers vs Rays and Yankees vs Twins. Thursday is Braves vs Giants.

    ????

    The Yankees won the AL wild card, finishing 2nd to the Tampa Rays. They're in the playoffs.

    The Phillies take Game 1 against the Reds. Did anyone have doubts about Halladay? A no-hitter for his first post-season game. H2O power in Philadelphia!

    I got my two oldest boys to sit and watch the latter part of that one with me. They were getting into it because I was getting into it. I only wish my Cardinals had had the testicular fortitude to steal your "O" - Oswalt. ;)

    Halladay is the man. He's now pushing 260 IP for the year...hope he holds out in all these playoff rounds.

    Know Yanks are in playoffs - don't want them to get past round 1.

    Halladay is a machine! he's the most hungriest Phillie on the team,this is what he was wanting his whole career.his focus is unearthly,i can't wait to see what he does for an encore.

    Oswalt and Hamels sure have their work cut for them for the second and third game. But speaking of Halladay, and certainly not to take anything away from form his abilities or accomplishments, but Carlos Ruiz ("Chooooooooch!") is proving to be one of the best catchers and his working in tandem with his pitchers is great.

    Yankees won over the Twins again tonight, taking the series lead 2-0. And the series heads to the Yanks' home turf so it's a good chance they'll sweep it in three straight.

    Rangers blanked the Rays earlier. Currently, the Giants are leading the Braves 1-0 in the 5th.

    Wow, the Red's pitcher hit two Phillies players, including Chooch, in the sixth and walked home a run after loading the bases. When he hit Francisco, hitting the bill of his batting helment which flew off, I thought the Phillies dugout was going to erupt. Luckily, the hit looked a lot worse than it actually was. Ruiz also managed to walk off his hit, but his was scary too, as he got hit in the knee.

    Reds and Phillies heading into the bottom of the 9th with the Phils leading 2-0 and Cole Hamels working on a shutout.

    And Cole does it!!

    Sigh...My NY Mets didn't make it again...and for me that means the MLB Season is over.

    and in the AL we have Yankees at Texas facing the Rangers


    Best ending would pit Rangers against the Giants with the Rangers then taking the WS in 6 games.

    I for one is praying for a Rangers - Giants World Series. The three teams I hate the most being a Met fan (Yankees, Braves, Phillies in that order) ALL made the playoffs. I just want to enjoy the World Series unlike last year when I had to be sedated.

    Being a Yankees fan half my life I of course think they will win the ALCS and go on to win the World Series again. And I hope they'll face the Giants in the WS because I wouldn't mind them possibly losing it to them. Not that I'd mind the Phillies winning it either, but I've been rooting for the Giants a bit this year too. I was especially glad when they kept San Diego out of the postseason. San Diego, Boston, Arizona and Anaheim (LAA) are the teams I most often root against no matter who they play.
