Why does TBS get to broadcast the ALCS every year? I don't get TBS and it pisses me off as an AL fan, I miss when Fox would broadcast both series.

They alternate each season. Last year, the ALCS was on Fox and the NLCS was on TBS.

Other than Swisher and A-Rod, there's very little I dislike about the Yankees. Gotta get on the Yankee train....

I can't say the same thing. I sympathize with Joe Boyd, the lead character in "Damn Yankees," who's willing to sell his soul to see New York lose. I got a kick reading what John Grisham, the author of "Calico Joe," said about how much he hates the Yankees.

They're a strong organization -- got to give them that. But I've seen the White Sox get pushed to the back of the line by that team for so many years that I can't bring myself to appreciate what they do.

Having said that, I'm also not crazy about Detroit, for obvious reasons. So if the Manhattan Millionaires make it through the ALCS, I will then become an rabid National League fan.

2 things I learned last night.The baseball gods are alive and well as they punished the moronic Nationals for sitting their best pitcher when it matters , and the National fans are the stupidest in baseball . I went over and read a lot of their comments , and almost unbelievably, there is this belief that they will surely be in this position for many years to come. Any non-johnnycomelately fan, like most of these so-called Nats fans are not, knows you cannot assume anything in this game with the spectre of injury and free agency, and just plain luck all playing into the future. Rizzo better hope they make it to the playoffs next year , because this is going to be his legacy if they don't.

Agreed. I have no love lost for the Tigers, they're a divisional rival after all, but it's not like they stole anything from the Sox; you can't have stolen what you just gave away. The Sox pissed away the division and the Tigers happened to the lucky recipients.

But the Yankees? **** those ****ing ****ers.

At least we avoid McCarver! Go Cardinals!

I understand, I hate the Yankees too, but I don't have as much hate for the Yankees as I do Detroit. I basically hate everyone on that Tigers team, especially Valverde. This hate has been there for a while, way before last year.

I have to go with the Tigers as much as it pains me to say. I've hated the Yankees for too long, and the End of the World is not a realistic third option.

I do have this crazy vision of Valverde (El Douche Grande) drilling Swisher between the numbers (not in the head, because it wouldn't hurt). But Swisher swings anyway and the bat slips out of his hands, hits Valverde in the forehead and knocks him clear into center field.

A guy can dream right?
