Just lost in game 5 to the Angels. I'm looking forward to seeing Championship Series and a World Series without the bulging salaries of New York and Boston...but the ratings will probably drop off.

Yay Angels! I like seeing a payroll that's 1.65x the number 2 payroll in the league go down.

I don't know, I kind of like having the Yankees in the playoffs. Not that I want them to win, but if it's Angels vs. White Sox, I don't really care. Outside of the Phillies, I'm not a huge baseball fan, but the Yanks are always a draw (the Red Sox aren't now that they've won, IMO) and they keep it interesting. I'm sure you could argue that this year's White Sox are last year's Red Sox, but I'm not buying.

Besides, wouldn't you rather see them make it all the way the World Series and then lose? You can't tell me that the memory of 2001 doesn't still bring a smile to your face [Wink]

There's no guarantee that they don't win if they get to the big Series. I'm happiest if they don't make the playoffs at all...and this feeling will only intensify as they continue to try to buy the best free agents every winter. If another team suddenly gets rich and tries the same strategy, I'll go ahead and hate them too!
