Playoffs

The Dodgers: an amazingly tedious game even if they did win. James Loney's grand slam got the blood racing for a while and then back to another peaceful afternoon. And where did they recruit those Cubs' fans? Mount Carmel Cemetery? They used to be capable of more passion than that.

The Angels: very exciting, full of tension and great baseball. Unfortunately, the great baseball was played by the Red Sox. E.g. Scott Shields: in his one inning pitched: 4 hits, two earned runs, no strikeouts. And let's not talk about Vladdy. His lousy base-running instincts are common knowledge. Except, apparently, to the network announcers who once again exhibit their usual ignorance of and bias against all west coast teams.
