Well, if you were looking for exciting playoff series, maybe you should check out a thrilling rock-paper-sciccsors tournament. Because all of the division series are currently 2-0.
By no means are any of the series OVER, but digging yourself out of an 0-2 hole is no easy feat. At least for the White Sox and Brewers they are returning home for games 3 and 4 of their series, but for the Cubbies and Angels they going on the road after losing 2 straight at home.
Things are pretty much going down how I expected. The only shocker is that the Cubbies are down 0-2, but after talking to Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com on Monday, he knew that the Dodgers would be a big hurdle for the Cubs. In the history of 5 game series in the MLB, there have been 7 teams that have overcome an 0-2 deficit to win the series.
Speaking of MLB Trade Rumors, Tim just recently did a really great article on the off season outlook for the Jays. It shows where money is tied up and suggests a few players that the team can afford to look at for 2009.
In Blue Jays news, B.J. Ryan has been nominated for DHL Delivery Man of the Year Award. He is up against the likes of Mariano Rivera, Francisco Rodriguez, Brad Lidge, and Joe Nathan. There is some pretty heavy competition, so make sure you vote for the fist pump and give B.J. a chance to win the Delivery Man of the Year Award!
