    Who are you rooting for?

    In the playoffs this year... (not who you think will win, but who you are rooting for)

    AL:

    Twins over A's.... I love watching Johan and Liriano (even though he isn't playing), plus the "Special K" relationship with the Twins still is kinda cool, plus way back when they were almost contracted, and then turned it around completely made me like them more

    Tigers over Yanks.... I love the Tigers young team, especially their pitchers (Verlander and Zumaya).... plus they have the all time hug king Sean Casey. Gotta cheer for him.

    NL:

    Mets over Dodgers... just don't care for the Dodgers much. I'm pulling for the Mets mainly because of the injuries to their SP. Plus the whole West Coast losing streak we had ruined our season basically.

    Padres over Cards... I despise the Cardinals, and the 34 year old Pujols (lol). Don't get me started on Jim Edmonds. Also, Jake Peavy is one of my favorite pitchers in the league.

    Re: Who are you rooting for?

    I'm pulling for the A's. One because they aren't the Yankees, lol and Two, because I'd like to see The Big Hurt get himself a ring.

    I'd like to see the Tigers move on too, but the Yankees are just so good this year, but they're young and should be in a position to win it for years to come.

    If anyone from the NL, I'd like to see the Dodgers win it because Kenny Lofton is my favorite player.

    I guess you could say I'm conflicted lol

    Kenny Lofton is a jinx though. No way do the Dodgers win it all

    I can't stand the Dodgers or Mets and I just can't root for St Louis. I guess that leaves San Diego in the NL. In the AL, I'm rooting for the A's but I'd be fine with the Tigers or Twins winning the pennant.

    This postseason is a real turd so far. But I guess things don't get very interesting till the Cee-Esses.

    Not as a contributor... Pretty sure he was left off the post-season roster due to injury.

    It is very cool seeing Sean Casey in the post season. I am just hoping to see good games.

    I'm rooting for the Reds not to be an inconsequence.

    Gotta cheer on the Tigers!!!! The Mayor is going to be awesome this postseason! I've got a feeling!....Or maybe its because he's my favorite player....

    Oh yeah, and I want the Pads to make it to the WS, but I want Sean and the Tigs to get a ring!
