Card's Win

The 2006 World Series Champions are the St Louis Cardinals. It was a long season that proved to all the the playoffs are a crapshoot. It comes down to who is hot at the time and wich pitchers rise up. I tip my hat to St Louis but I hope next year will be for the Mets. Thanks to anyone who took the time to read me thoughts this season. About mid way through the season I re did my personal web site and it exploded with now over 1000 members. This took alot of time from me here. I dont think I will continue anymore. I encourage anyone to check out 'Mikes Mets' blog and for fans of other teams try one of the links from his site. Thanks for being here and I'll see you in Florida this Feb....

World Series 2006

After the Tigers quickly took care of Oakland in 4 games, the Card's took out the Mets in 7. This was a tough loss for the favored Mets and Met fans too. I tip my hat to the Cards.

Tigers vs. Cards

As I type the Card's have won game one. Winning with offense and power. Knowing that I still like the Tigers to bounce back and take it but it probably will have to be in 7. This could be St Louis' year and after beating the Mets I wouldnt be suprised if the Cards get there ring..

8 more wins....

The first round is over ... The Cards beat out the Padre's in 4 and the Mets swept the Dodgers. The A's swept the Twins and the Tigers knocked down the 'best team money can buy' Yankees. Its was nice to see the high proced Yankee bats go flat. Even if they wanted to change the team up they couldnt. Theres too much money invovled. Maybee Sheffield is gone. Maybee you figure out a way to trade ARod. Thats about it...

A's vs Tigers
Mets vs Cardinals

I like the A's in a long 7 game series. Both teams have solid pitching..
I like the Mets in 5. They are just better the St Louis. I give Puljols one game..

Playoffs 2006

Its been a long season but the best part has arived , the playoffs. Heres how things finished out....
AL -
Yankees and Oakland won the respective divisions. In the central Detroit fell and fell hard. After being swept by KC the last 3 games of the season , The Tigers will go as the wildcard and the Twins will represent the central.

Yankees vs. Tigers / A's vs. Twins

I like the Yankees to sweep it quick unless Johnson throws another stinker and they need 4 to win. I like the Twins in a long series. Seems like the Yankees - Twins have been on track to face up all year..

NL -
The Mets clinched a few weeks ago. The Cardinals did there best to give it away but managed to hold on and back in from the central. Out west the Dodgers and Padres finished with the same record , however with a better head-to-head record the Padres will represent the west with the Dodgers going in as the wildcard.

Mets vs. Dodgers / Padres vs. Cardinals

I like the Mets to win in 4 games. It might take 5 if they dont win the first game. I like the Padres over the Card's. The Cardinals have been so bad, the only way they could win would be a 'Puljos night'. I think the Pad's have played well lately and I dont see that changing.

Braves Officially Eliminated

 The Atlanta Braves run of 14 straight postseasons is over. 14 years is a nice run. Many time I thought they would be done but kept fighting back. Im just happy that are done and I dont have to see them so any more damage to the Eastern Division Champions NY Mets.... Let hope the NL wins it this year ! Go Mets !

Liriano Is Done For Year

The Twins post season hopes took a bad turn yesterday when there ace rookie pitcher Fransisco Liriano left the game in the 3rd inning with elbow pain. Liriano was an up and coming star. He will not pitch again this year. The Twins still have Santana and Nathan but that probably wont be enough to overtake the Yankees. The Twins have a good pitching staff and should be contenders for the next few years. They still need to add a few power hitters but that is not as hard to find as the pitching. I love to see all the young up and coming pitchers do there thing. Seems like every team now has a 'young gun'.

Marlin's Rookie Throw a No - No

Florida Marlin's rookie Anibal Sanchez threw a no hitter tonight against the Diamondbacks. It was only his 13th major league start. It only took him 103 pitches to do it too. The Marlins have some good young pitchers and you can now add Sanchez to that list. He was mobbed by his teammates after the win and later Sanchez would say "This is the best moment of my life". Anibal Sanchez is only 22 years old.
