And thus, it begins… the offseason for the Yanks and the precious postseason for the teams that made it.
For what’s going on in Yankee Universe: The
first move of the offseason has been made and the Yanks have resigned
the Mariano of GM’s, Brian Cashman. I don’t think anyone believed Cash
would actually leave the team he’s help build, even though it was a possibility. However, now
that he’s officially staying on board for at least the next three
years, you can cross that off the checklist and feel a little relief.
For what’s going on in the rest of baseball:
The postseason has begun… and it’s time for my pick. I said
before that I wasn’t sure what team I’d be rooting for in October since
the Yanks decided to purposely drown themselves so the other teams can
get a shot… but, I’ve made my decision. Hello Chicago White Sox,
you’ve just been adopted for a month. No surprise. The Red Sox were not going to
get any support from me for obvious reasons. Same goes for the Angels.
The two teams left in the AL were the Rays [a.k.a. the out of nowhere,
backstabbing, must be cheaters] and the White Sox, lead by one crazy
s.o.b. So naturally I chose the team lead by the crazy s.o.b. I don’t
really care about the NL, but if the Dodgers make it to the WS, I’ll
root for them [well, all but the one that can’t pull off any other
color than Red Sox Red] because I would love to see Torre stick it to
the morons that thought that a one year deal wasn’t an insult.
