  • Which team(s) would you like to see in the 2006 playoffs?

    Two parts:

    Which team which didn't make the 2004 and/or 2005 playoffs would you like to see make it this season?

    Which team that didn't go very far (1st round loss) make it to the LCS?

    If you could state your reasons why you'd like to see that team at least make it, or advance further than before, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

    Thanks.

    AL East- As much as I enjoy seeing the Yankees every year in the postseason, I wouldn't mind seeing Toronto this year. They have made a few trades and I think they will benefit.
    AL Central- Lets face it, Chicago has the same team from last year, with a few differs. I think they will come back to the playoffs. Why Not?
    AL West- Love to see my Rangers make it, but if they still have the current pitching rotation in a couple months as they do now, it's going back to Los Angeles.
    AL Wild Card- Yankees. Enough said..

    NL East- Atlanta Braves going again. A more dominate team, but only time will tell you how far they go this upcoming year.
    NL Central- I'd like to see Chicago go, but with St. Louis and Houston, this one could be a toss up.
    NL West- With Bonds healthy, I'll go with San Fran. Do I like Bonds? No. Is he a good player? Yes.
    NL Wildcard- This could be one of the best wildcards ever. I like Florida's and Chicago's chances this year. Chicago got rid of Patterson which will help a lot.

        I'll tell Reggie to stick his fannie out a little bit, and Tommie Lasorda can again go ballistic on him.

        The umpires again won't listen to him.

          Hopefully there will be no reoccurance of Reggie Jackson

          The similaraties of this 2006 Dodger team and the 96 Yankee team are very apperant

            I would love to see Frank Robinson and the Nats overcome the chaos they are playoing under and get to the playoffs. Robbies job as mentor and mgr for a franchise with so much against its competitive abilities( what free agent wants to go to a franchise in limbo ?) is great and best of luck this year.I would love to see the Braves win one more Series for Bobby Cox. Year in and year out we hear that this year they are too old, or this year they are too young, or they have not done enough in the offseason yet for 14 years they are on top. One more Series win would be a nice vindication for a guy who gets the job done every year.

              I would like to see the Brew crew (Brewers) give a playoff run a shot. Not because they were Bud's team, but the fact that they visably improved last year can only mean that they are headed in the right direction.

              I would also like to see the Rockies figure out the puzzle that is Coors Field and make a run similar to the 1995 Rockies team. It's a pipedream, sure, but it would be interesting if this team does figure out the puzzle.

              And the Chicago Cubs...because quite frankly they shouldn't have to wait an entire century to win a WS championship.

              2) "The teams play 1962 games in 180 days."

              3) "Stadiums don't move silly, people do."

              4) "Once again you quibble, because it is I who speaks."

              5) Almost anything RuthMayBond says...

                Toronto, it's been a long time since the city here was talking Baseball, and it's starting to happen again, there is alot of belief that the Jays can over take one of either the Red Sox, or Yankees, and I must say it's been a while since Baseball held a candle to Hockey talk here.

                    My heart tells me that someday I will see the World Series of my dreams (Orioles over Giants in 7 games).

                    I think the Giants have a good chance of making it to the playoffs this year. O's, maybe not as good a chance...

                    I think the playoffs will look like this...
                    White Sox over Yankees
                    Red Sox over A's
                    Mets over Giants
                    Cardnials over Astros

                    Red Sox over White Sox
                    Mets over Cardnials

                    Red Sox over Mets in the World Series

                        My Picks (AKA who I would like to see):
                        NL East: Mets -- I know they are the Mets, but at some point all the talent is going to lead to some winning.
                        NL Central: Cubs -- They've made some good moves this offseason (don't underestimate the importance of a great leadoff hitter), but they'll have to play smart and stay healthy to win.
                        NL West: Giants -- Barry Bonds
                        NLWC: Brewers: I realize that this is a longshot as well (and that I excluded the Braves and the Cardinals), but this team has some of the best overall talent anywhere.

                        AL East: Yankees -- Eight straight division titles and they got much better this offseason by signing Damon.
                        AL Central: Chi Sox -- They got better and Cleveland got worse.
                        AL West: Mariners -- Please stop laughing and think about this. They've signed Washburn. Beltre won't suck next year. They still have Ichiro to get everything going. Their worst positions last season were SS, 2B, and C -- Betancourt is one of the best defensive SSs I've EVER seen (Peter Gammons is already calling him the next Ozzie Smith), Lopez is solid at 2B and is developing homerun power, and they signed Kenji Johima (Japan's newest wonder) at C. Everyone is comparing the guy to Pudge except with a BETTER ARM. All I can say is that the Ms know how to evaluate Japanese talent.
                        ALWC: Red Sox -- The Blue Jays are living in a dream world. The Sox still have Manny and Ortiz and they will be there next year too. With the increased talent on the mound, they should have a 90+ win season EASY.
