I'm so waiting for the day when the Yankees won't even be in the playoffs. I hope their stay is a short three games this season.

Failing to win it all with a 210 M payroll will still be disgrace.

Hoping for a sweep.

Torre cries every year: at the end of the regular season and every time they win a playoff series. It's a little old. But it's also impressive that he can get emotional when two of the main contributors are pricks like Randy and Sheffield.

I only chose a mild preference for Anaheim because I wouldn't mind seeing Boston beat the Yankees in the ALCS, since Skank fans hate it when they lose to Boston.

If those Cleveland Idiots had held up their end, Boston would be trying to eliminate the Yanks today. Damn you, Cleveland.

For once, I'm rooting for the Yan...

Nah, can't do it with a straight face. Strongly for the Angels. I'm not even a front-runner on this as I've already specified the Los Anaheims of Angeles as my favorite American League squadron.

And I'm afraid you're not right for our band INXS.

Martin needs to persuade silverdsl to vote for the Angels since he has already cast her vote for her.

More reasons to vote Angels...A-Fraud...from Bob Raissman.

CALL HIM 'A-READ': Listening to Alex Rodriguez during Saturday's postgame celebration gave every indication that he prepared a script for the occasion. In three interviews - with Fox's Chris Myers, Sterling and Kay - A-Rod used the following line: "This is emotional for me. Over the last year or so, I've grown so much as a person and a player. I thank the city of New York and the pinstripes for that." Now that's sappy. . . .



I saw the Myers interview, A-Fraud all but shoved himself in front of the mic after Myers was done with Sheffield, and I swear he used the same line with Kay on the post-game...ass-hole.

I know Ill take alot of heat for this, but I voted Skanks.

I feel that if the Mets cant be there, a New York team should be.
Im no Yank fan.
I dont hate them as much as the way the media and NY papers rally around them.(Piazza's last stand gets a buried blurb box and the bombers get 4 freakin pages, not including the back page)

But a NY team should make the big show every year, in Zvons world.
Its a New York thing.
Best damn city on the face of the earth.
