I'm definitely watching. I'm rooting for the Twins. I like the way they play ball. Plus they're a former team from Washington, DC.

Cardinals have a really good shot. That offense is deadly and if they get an early lead in the games the Dodgers bullpen is useless. Lots of interesting subplots in the playoffs-will the Red Sox break the curse, will the Braves finally get another World Series, will we see a SoCal match of Angels vs. Dodgers, will Clemens and Pettite lead Houston to a win over their former team the Yankees?

I'm somewhat interested but I know I lost a lot of interest when my team (Padres) was eliminated in that last week of the season. I'm rooting for either the twins, red sox or the cardinals.

Here's my guess, Cardinals, Braves, Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox, A's, Twins, umm someone help me out with the rest

You got em all right except for the A's.

Here you go...

Cardinals vs. Dodgers - Cardinals lead 1-0

Astros vs. Braves - Game 1 today

Red Sox vs. Angels - Red Sox lead 1-0

Twins vs. Yankees - Twins lead 1-0

Another hater. You either love em or you hate em I guess.

I am a huge Yankee fan, so of course I'm rooting for em. I know we lost game 1, but hey it was against the best pitcher in the league. Hopefully tonight we can dominate Radke and get a win. I thought we had a chance last night, but I have to give the Twins their props.....they played awesome defense and made some great plays.

For the first time though I am really worried about my Yanks since they have suspect pitching and can't match up well with anyone else in the AL (pitching wise). We'll see though.

I love this time of the year, football, baseball playoffs, and basketball is right around the corner.

Looks like it's only Clemens since Pettite is injured. You gotta love how Houston came back strong in September though. They have a great chance.

My prediction for the WS is..

Yankees or Red Sox vs. Cardinals or Astros.

I'm an O's fan. The '96 ALCS (the Jeffrey Maier incident) is when I really started hating the Yankees. The O's had an awesome offense that year and would have won it all if it weren't for that little brat.

I used to like the yankees (Around the time don mattingly was on the team) but then as I got older and they continued to win or atleast be in the world series almost every year I started to hate how a team could just by a championship like that and found myself rooting for anyone playing them, especially small market teams and big time underdogs.

Yankees fan since birth! What a game last night! I was amongst either a lot of Twins fans or Yankee haters. The silence was golden after that magical 12th inning.
