    The MLB Postseason kicks off tomorrow and here are the contenders for the ALDS:

    Twins Vs. Yankees
    Devil Rays Vs. Rangers

    For the NLDS:

    Phillies Vs. Reds
    Braves Vs. Giants

    Tomorrow I'll probably get the Yankees-Twins faceoff, since ESPN Asia heavily broadcasts Yankees games here. (It sucks, really.)

    I do hope the Cubs reach the NLDS next season and possibly the WS...Its been 103 years since their last title!

    Haven't had any interest since the baseball strike that screwed the Expos

    Can't believe me eyes...Roy Halladay in his first postseason start of his career, pitches a no-hitter and the Phillies win 4-0 over the Reds. Amazing game. :shock:

    Pb has a grudge on the MLB probably because the Expos lead their division in '94 when the Strike began and then they became the Washington Nationals.

    So for today, the ALDS:

    Texas 1-0 Tampa Bay
    New York 1-0 Minnesota

    NLDS:

    Philadelphia 1-0 Cincinnati
    San Francisco-Atlanta series game one to begin tomorrow!

    GO RANGERS!!!! Only their 2nd post season victory ever but it was a good one. Who could have thought that big fat tub of lard Molina would go 3 for 4 with a homerun. Man, when he runs it looks like two pigs fighting in a blanket.

    The Rangers actually have a shot at getting to the world series, as does every American League team, but they would get squashed by the Phillies.

    Oh......and introducing your American League MVP......JOSH HAMILTON!!!!!!

    :lol: Remember that back in the regular season he got a triple to complete the Cycle. He's freaking fat, but I can't believe he can run 270 feet and not be tagged out.

    Twins just can't seem to get it done against the Yankees all year. Thought maybe homefield advantage would make the difference, but it hasn't. lost 2 of 2 so far and now it's off to evil Yankee land for the next 2 games, not good.

    Sorry to hear about your Twins Buck, but if they can't come back and win 3 straight, you can start cheering for the RANGERS!!!!!

    The Twins are out of the running for the ALCS after a really sad 6-1 loss. Now I can only hope the Rangers win their first postseason series or possibly their first World Series. Kick the Bronx Bombers' a$$!

    An exciting day for the Rangers and its fans since the franchise wins its very first postseason series to face New York in the ALCS on Friday. Interesting championship series to say the least!
