IF THE BASEBALL PLAYOFFS STARTED TODAY... September 27, 2008

Well congrats to the AL East Champion Tampa Bay Rays.

My God that looks strange typed out.
But they were a great team this year...
And I hope the Red Sox face them in the ALCS and crush them!

But I digress.

The playoff picture is a little clearer now but won't be completely settled until Sunday at the earliest.

So let's look at the match ups.

I recognize players who were robbed of a World Series MVP




SULLY BASEBALL PLUG OF THE DAY:
DARK HORSE by Kenneth D. Ackerman

If you think this year's Presidential race is odd, then read up on the election and after math of 1880.

The Republican ticket was one guy who didn't even want to run (Garfield) and a man so corrupt that the previous President removed him from his government (Athur.)

A crazed office seeker wanted to be Minister to Paris despite not speaking any French. Garfield turned him down, so the office seeker shot President Garfield so he could ask the new President Arthur.

After that the story gets crazy. Well written and even funny... read it.

It might not be as crazy as this pennant race, but it is indeed a good read.
