Warning, incoming Baseball post.

The MLB playoffs have finally arrived! Time to talk some baseball.

American League: Blah blah blah Red Sox. Blah blah blah Yankees. No one outside of the Northeast GIVES A SHIT! The only way this will be interesting is if the Angels beat the Yankees. The White Sox will likely get their asses handed to them on a silver platter. Still, it would be great if they beat the Red Sox. If I have to put up with the Yankees-Red Sox bullshit again, I may shoot myself.

National League: The Astros will beat the Braves. The Astros have the best pitching, by far, and will face the Cardinals in the NLCS. The Cardinals will sweep the Padres. Why? Because the Padres suck. They shouldn't even be in the playoffs. The NL West is an embarassment to the National League. So, the real question is who win the NLCS? I like the Astros, because they essentially will have a starting pitcher for every single game who would be the ace on 90% of the teams in baseball starting every single game. No team in baseball can match the playoff rotation of Roger Clemens, Andy Pettite, and Roy Oswalt. Oh, and there is that Brad Lidge guy who is as automatic a closer as they come. Go Astros!
