    What do you want to see in the playoffs?

    Only a month away. I think number one is a big time matchup in the World Series. Not to say I root for the Yankees or anything, but a Yankees/Red Sox vs. Dodgers World Series would be the huge draw MLB needs. Colorado/San Francisco vs. Detroit is not.

    Second, and maybe more importantly is a COMPETITIVE World Series, which there hasn't been the past 5 years. The past 5 years the World Series has been so lopsided that the winner's record versus the loser is 20-2. 20-2! That's just pathetic.

    We've done the underdog story to death. The Rays, Rockies, Tigers, etc, etc. While I always root for the underdog, I think its about time to have some legitimately big name World Series matchup. A St. Louis vs. Los Angles NLCS and a NY vs. Boston ALCS would be the kind of money matchups the MLB sorely needs.

    Just say no to NY vs LA. I dont feel like being further bombarded by ESPN about Joe Torre, ManRam, and the Yanks.

    Well, I would really like to see Louisville take the whole thing although their pitching is a little thin.

    Wood and Klinker both need to turn in great performances.

    It has been nice to see Denove do so well in the catcher position. Hopefully he can keep that up.

    Heiseyn and Frazier need to keep doing what they have done all year.

    Lastly, Francisco. Error free series with a hot bat.

    It will be difficult for Sweet though because so much of his team is now in Cincinnati.

    Anyone but the Yankees and Red Sox. I can't stand the thought of those arrogant, rude fanbases having something to celebrate, plus the thought of A-Rod winning a world series makes me sick to my stomach.

    Re: What do you want to see in the playoffs?

    My playoff wish list...

    1. The Phillies do not win the World Series-the reason is that I like having the bragging rights that the Reds were the last NL team to do so. In fact there have only been 3 NL teams to repeat, the Cubs 06-07, NY Giants I think 20-21, and of course the BRM 75-76.

    2. No Cubs or Braves in the playoffs, two many bandwagon fans to give hell to when they miss!

    3. The Red Sox gets beat, preferably by the Yankees, see item #2.

    The Red Sox cannot make it to the series. If they do, they HAVE to lose the first game, otherwise they would be tied with the Reds for the longest current winning streak in WS play. The Reds have won 9 straight games, the Sox have won 8 straight.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I rarely watch any of the playoffs ever.

    I love my REDS so much, that if they're not in it, I hope they all lose.

    I just don't care.

    Thats probably what MLBHQ wants. But Add that to Yanks vs LA. Anything that gives ESPN an excuse to blatently forget about 50% of the country for a week is a bad thing.

    I truely believe that if it ever happens again it means that almost everyone worthy of being called a MLBer is on the DL except whomever is on the Reds that year. That or a crazy derranged Reds fan selling his soul to the devil in exchange for Reds success!
