  1. Fine work Mike. Even with the bias against Boston!

    You know what bugs me about baseball….

    When the team (lets say for example, the Blue Jays) that comes to bat first makes the 3rd out in the top of the first inning, the announcers say “And after one half of an inning its the Blue Jays 1 and the Yankees are coming to bat”…..I understand the Yankees at this point, have not been up yet, therefore have not scored a run. Why not just say the score is the Blue Jays 1- Yankees 0? Why do you have to say “coming to bat”? We get it. We get they haven’t been up yet, but the fact is they have 0 runs. So the score is 1-0. This is really dumb.

    • I have no bias against Boston, i call them like I see them. Boston started the year with the 2nd highest payroll in baseball and I actually selected them in my preseason forecast to get the 2nd wildcard slot, and then beat the Yankees in the wildcard one game playoff. You can look it up!!
      Interesting that of the top 5 highest payrolls in baseball, only the Yankees will make the playoffs. Boston, Philly, the Angels and Tigers will all miss the postseason as it looks now!
      The announcer thing? Well you can’t say 0 if the team hasnt batted yet!! That would be inaccurate!

  2. Yankees havent made it yet. A one game play in game looms on their horizon and they dont have the horse to put on the mound that I would feel very confident with. We’ll have to see how this plays out….Boston is a total disgrace. Cant disagree with you there! Funny how they can beat the Rays when it doesnt matter (to them at least)

    • The one game play in IS a playoff game, it IS the postseason now under the new system. All stats in the one game playoffs will count as postseason stats. It is no different than the first week of the NFL playoffs and the wildcard games. These aren’t “play-in” games, these are postseason games. I’m not sure how you can be so sure that the Yankees won’t win the division either. They are currently tied with the Orioles and one game ahead of them in the loss column.
      My point on the payrolls is that if it is just a matter of payroll, then why will the 2nd-5th highest payroll teams of 2012 miss the playoffs?
      Payroll is also misleading. If you are a team that has developed good players in house or make good trades, eventually they come due for big contracts and to resign them you have to pay. If the Rangers resign Hamilton after this season their payroll will most certainly increase, but does that make them better? LOL!! All they will be doing is paying the same player MORE money because it is contract time for him!!
