    They've clinched a playoff berth, so there's that. Twins are leading the AL Central at the moment, but it's still a bit of a toss-up who will finish first between them, The Chi-Sox and Cleveland.

    Twins and Indians got the playoffs, but everything is so close that it's hard to tell who they can face.

    All things considered, it's been an entertaining season. NL still has several possibilities of who might get in the playoffs.

    And I've decided, DH for both leagues should stay... *runs*

    Hey, maybe that means the Twins will actually be able to make it past the Yanks this year.
    Mmm....nah. But I'm rooting for yah!

    The Cubs offense is mostly crap half the time and the bullpen still gives me anxiety. Yu and Hendricks are pitching great though and Mills might have a good future ahead of him.

    And as he lay there
    Playing games with his pain
    He felt his choice of jobs
    Was such a mistake
    He could have been a doctor
    In a soft easy chair
    Instead he chose three stars
    A territorial affair

    The Cubs can send out Bote or Schwarber to be the DH if that is still allowed. Smart money is on the Dodgers winning it all.

    So many different playoff projections and four teams vying for the last two spots in the NL. Pretty cool.

    I won my third fantasy ESPN baseball title this week. Lost in the first round last year and lost two title games before that, all in ESPN. I'm counting it despite the shortened season-I went 5-2 in the regular season, 2-0 in the playoffs.

    3rd place for me.

    Postseason predictions:
    Rays beat Jays 2-0
    Yankees beat Indians 2-1
    Twins beat Astros 2-1
    White Sox beat A's 2-1

    Dodgers beat Brewers 2-0
    Cardinals beat Padres 2-0
    Marlins beat Cubs 2-1
    Reds beat Braves 2-1

    Rays beat Yankees 4-2
    White Sox beat Twins 4-3
    Dodgers beat Cardinals 4-1
    Marlins beat Reds 4-2

    Rays beat White Sox 4-2
    Dodgers beat Marlins 4-1

    Dodgers finally pay for their World Series 4-2.

    You'll get no argument from me. DH (Nelson "Boomstick!" Cruz) has rapidly become my favorite Twin, and is so popular with the fans that he has a food item named after him at Target field (a 2 foot long chili cheese dog. good luck surviving that one with clean shirt).

    Chili Cruz Dog?
    lol. I'd like to see people navigate that down the steps.

    It's actually called a Boomstick. I've never seen a fella so focused as the time I saw a guy trying to carry that messy beast through a crowd.

    I don't think I can handle the Cubs losing to the Marlins in the playoffs again.

    If I had an AL Midwest team it would be the Twins or the Royals. I usually prefer the Athletics though when it comes to the AL because of their history and also because of Moneyball.
