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.
