Oh, I wanted to mention this. I heard an interview on the radio with Jim Leland today. He talked about 2006 and the problems they had with the long wait between the end of their championship series and the start of the World Series. The same as they have now. In 2006, they did regular work outs at Ford Field (the domed football field), and they felt that they started out very sluggish. This year, starting tomorrow, they will be playing games against the Florida instructional league team (the league just ended) at Comerica Park. At least tomorrow and Sunday. Then they will evaluate what they need to do until the Series starts.

Smart.

ETA - this is, of course, the Tigers I am talkig about.

Jim Leyland? Wasn't he the manager of The Pirates who the Braves beat in the NLCS two years in a row? :saint: :P

:wuzrobbed Yes. I still remember Andy Van Slyke just sitting in center field after they lost the second time. :fragile:

I must have missed that as I was more focused on Sid Bream and his broke-down knees giving it his all to score and the team pile-up when they won.

Andy was a totally hottie. :grope: So, you know, that's kind of where I focused my attention..... :shuffle:

Sadly, his son Scott, who plays for the eville Dodgers, inherited his father's gorgeous eyes, but not his fantastic physique. And butt. Andy had a nice ass. ;)

Does anyone here know CPR? Or have smelling salts handy? I know somewhere earlier in this thread, I would be fine with just the Giants even making it to the post-season. I didn't expect them to go this far with all the chaos of the year.

I am not going to survive tonight.
