    Um, the Yankees have won more WS than the next two teams COMBINED (BOS and STL). That, my friends, is what I call way too many. That, and they prematurely called themselves AL Champs as soon as they traded for Giancarlo. They're nothing but classless jerks who buy their way to the top. F the Warriors, of course, but the Athletics are not the Warriors.

    We clinch the division on September 25 again (well, technically the 26th, but it's still the 25th in Seattle, close enough).

    What I meant was, you don't have obvious sell outs like Kevin Durant join the team. They haven't eliminated us in a playoff series yet. And they haven't won it all in a while. They could become the Warriors in a few years, but they're not there yet. Of course, the city of Houston>>>>>>Oakland. Whatever. Can't we all just celebrate winning the division?

    It’s probably going to be noon or 1. Highly doubtful it’s later in the day with the other markets slated to be in the playoffs.

    Was just thinking about all those years of struggle in the NL central never being able to beat out the Cardinals for the division.

    How sweet it is to start piling up some division championships.

    Some might say, “Pah I only care about Pennants or WS Championships”

    But I like it.

    Hasn't been announced yet. Hate that baseball still has weekday afternoon playoff games...it's okay if there is a little bit of overlap in your games MLB, they should all be played at night during the work week.

    I would think between the two games that day AL game would be more competitive than the NL no?
