Not really. I'm not getting this whole OH WATCH OUT FOR THE RAYS shit that started after they won last night. The Red Sox went 12-7 against them during the season. They can beat them. Yes Tampa Bays starters are excellent, but Boston's have been nearly as good this year, and their offenses aren't even comparable. It will be a good series, but the Rays aren't this juggernaut that cannot be stopped.

I'm sorry if I'm ranting about this, but I really, really hate that team. From the twitter stuff they started earlier this season when they had a brief half a game lead in the division, to the smugness of the whole group. This was a team that couldn't score a run to save it's life 3 weeks ago, and almost blew a 7 run lead against the Blue Jays on the last day of the year, and they act like they've won the World Series with every game, and the media buys right into it. I think that people should have fun playing the game, but they take it to a level that is nauseating. Act like you've been there before, act like a professional, and don't smack talk about a .5 game lead that you had, when you eventually lost the division but what, 9 games? They have surpassed the recent Yankee teams as the team I hate the most.

The Red Sox have been the best team in the league the whole year this year. They'll show up, and they'll be fine.

I went to an NLCS game years ago. Whatever happens, don't be in the bathroom in the 9th inning. Nothing like missing the game winning homer while taking a piss.

2006, Game 2 at the old Shea. My old man and I went. They blew 3 leads that night. Was standing at a urinal in a couple inches of standing piss when I heard 50,000 groan at once. I finished up, went back to my seat, and saw that something named So Taguchi hit a 3 run bomb. Mets lost 9-6.

Ever been on a train ride from the stadium after a playoff loss? There was the 7 line that night and the special gameday train out of Foxborough after a Pats loss. You've never seen more people that appear to be capable of taking a life with their bare hands.

I've been on trains after losses, but I have never seen a playoff game live.

So it's like Philadelphia, then?

It's being reported that Dusty Baker is finished with Cincinnati. I'd take him in a heartbeat over Gibbons for the Jays.

You can have him. It didn't take all that long before I understood all too well Timby's outright gleeful response when the Cubs let him go. I don't doubt his has enjoyed some good player support while in Cincinnati... but things have just plain been screwy with many of his personnel decisions the past couple of years - particularly the pitching. Starting Cueto this year in the wildcard game against Pittsburgh is a good example. In all seriousness though... I think his health necessitates his retirement, and I was quite surprised when he came back after his late season problems last year.

But bottom line is I am glad Cincinnati has decided to change things up. This team has woefully underachieved the past 3 seasons. And that is reason enough for my money to make a change.

I'd take a moldy shoebox over John Gibbons.

I really don't have a dog in the playoffs this year except to say I hope the Red Sox and Cardinals crash... hard.
