Are You Enjoying the MLB Playoffs?

The Major League Baseball playoffs have seen their fare share of great pitching, clutch hitting, close games, and dominant performances this week -- especially in the quad set of Game Fours. And one team has already punched their ticket to the American League Championship Series, defending AL Champion Texas Rangers.

The Rangers eliminated the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALDS, the former cinderella team in baseball (final score 4-3.) The Philadelphia Phillies won another close National League Division Series game against the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2. Philadelphia is one win away from the NL Championship Series.

The Arizona Diamondbacks kept their World Series dreams alive with a dominant 8-1 NLDS win over the Milwaukee Brewers. However, no team was as dominant in its respective Game 4 than the New York Yankees, who rallied behind often-criticized pitcher A.J. Burnett for a huge win over the Detroit Tigers.

The Yankees' batters certainly helped Burnett's cause, rattling off runs like it was nothing for a final score of 10-1. The Yankees and Tigers are one win away from facing the Rangers in the ALCS. Based of these Game 4s, the Rangers look to be an early World Series favorite.

As the Divisional Series has shown fans--a series isn't over until it's over. The real winners in all of this? The baseball fans.

    GO Tigers! How great is it to have the Tigers in the MLB Playoffs and the LIONS are 4-0!
  • none 2011/10/07 15:50:17
    My two favorite teams aren't in the play offs so it doesn't really matter to me as much as it could although I did enjoy seeing the Yankees lose to the Tigers last night. I have three favorite teams, the Red Sox, the Giants, and any team that beats the Yankees.
  • wcpjams 2011/10/07 13:28:58 (edited)
    Well I'm enjoying them much better now that the Yankees have been eliminated. And I will be pulling for Texas from this point on.

    Now that a team with half the revenues to pay their players(Detroit) beat the overpaid bums from NY,it is going to be a fun series playoff.

    NIce pic up top btw, the Cards rushing the field after clinching the 2006 Series.

    I'm loving it at the moment. Just spent the last two nights in the stands watching the Cards split two tight games with the Phils. Well watching that and Busch Squirrel...

    Busch Squirrel

    Game 5 coming up. If we lose, oh well. We showed very well and gave the Phils a scare. If we win? Who knows what could happen? 11th World Title in 2011?

    Yes, baseball does exist places other than the east coast.

    I was actually hoping the sox would make the playoffs because I wanted a re-match of the '04 Series. We absolutely stunk and this year would have been different.
  • beavith1 dave s 2011/10/06 19:46:48
    the way they played this year ranged from a downright awful start to commanding to a downright awful finish.

    in their commanding period, i'd have stacked them up against anyone. in their pitiful stages, they could well have been the worst team in baseball. i've never seen anything like it.
  • Garciataria 2011/10/06 13:35:15 (edited)
    Even more now that the Rangers eliminated the Rays (I hate the Rays).

    Rays Suck
