Well, that was an exciting first round. The year of the pitcher carried right over into the postseason, thanks to Lincecum, Halladay, and Lee. Lincecum and Halladay are set to engage in the biggest battle of Titans since Zeus and Kronos. But on the downside (for Texas, at least), Cliff Lee going in Game 5 means he’ll start Game 3 of the next round, and only will go twice, instead of three potential appearances for CC Sabathia.
But in the meantime, the Yankees and Phillies were kind to most of us, while the Rays completely blew it for all of us. That was the first time when all five games of a series were won by the road team. We can definitely expect the Yankees to sign Cliff Lee next year. Some of us, though, had the foresight to see Bobby Cox’ career ending in defeat early.
But I’m sure you’re dying to see exactly how we’re all doing. Our fantasy guru Pete is in the lead, but it’s pure fantasy if he thinks he’ll defeat me. We were the only two to correctly guess the winner of each series other than Texas/Tampa, so expect good things to follow. Check below to see where everyone stands so far:
