Also, I'm pretty sure they have to win *both* games to take the series back to MIN. It's a best of 5 series.

I think all playoff series should be best of 3.

reduce the playoffs down to just 2 rounds...at most then the playoffs would run a week and a half.

My aunt used to own a 13 cabin lodge in northern Minnesota. Best summers of my life. Great fishing, shore lunches, endless games of teather ball (sp?). God I miss that. I remember we had to make sure we closed the doors because Bears would literally come into your cabin..."bears..beets, battlestar gallactica".

Twins are on their death bed. Phillies look unstoppable anyway. They could just use Halladay, Hamels and Oswalt the whole playoffs, which is flat-out unfair.

is that football? I'm giving up on football I think, I gave it a go for a few years there, but it seems like its just a filler between baseball and college basketball, and this filler makes me angry

I'm now a hockey fan

My favorite excerpt: "And of course nothing will change, no matter how much "debate" ensues, except maybe a carefully constructed blue-ribbon "replay" commission will be empaneled, and George Will again will drape himself over the proceedings like a horrible lace doily, and the rest of us will go on waiting patiently for the removal of the human element known as Bud Selig."
