Wednesday, October 1st — Baseball Playoffs

October 1, 2008

Today I Learned…

…that it’s been waaaaaaaaay too long since I’ve really watched any baseball.

Go Red Sox!

Division Series Storylines: Can the 100-year Cubs beat out the Manny-led Dodgers?  Can the Phillies overcome last season’s disappointment?  How will the Rays fare in their first October games in franchise history, and how will the Brewers do in their first postseason in my lifetime (1984 being their last playoff season)?  Can the Red Sox defend their World Championship despite the most injury trouble they’ve had in years?  Can the Angels snap out of their self-imposed hibernation after winning their division by 21 games?  How will the White Sox perform after needing 163 games to win their division?  Will we see a “Freeway Series?” (Dodgers v. Angels)  Or maybe an all-Chicago series?  Both Chicago teams haven’t been in the postseason in the same season since 1904.  Just how much baseball can I manage to watch despite my job?
