I think I'm more excited about the Rays/Sawx ALCS than I am about any potential World Series match-up. That's probably because:
a.) I don't give a flying rat's patoot about either NL team.
b.) the Rays/Sawx match-up gives us the highest likelihood of fisticuffs. I love those.
I'd rather see the Dodgers make the Series, only because it'll be fun to watch Joe Torre stick it to the non-playoff-making Yankees organization. Plus, I used to work with a guy who played for the Phillies and I didn't like him that much. For some reason, I hold the entire current Phillies organization responsible. It's totally irrational, I'm aware. That's how I roll, folks.
I have a feeling that a lot of the Twins off-season blogging is going to consist of me talking about funny things that happen, and then desperately trying to connect them to baseball in some convoluted manner. So I thought I'd get a headstart and practice with a little anecdote for the Rays.
I was at Bath & Body Works this weekend, and a little girl picked up an adorable stuffed sheep and showed her mom, saying "OK, Mom. How about buying this for me? The answer is either yes, or yes." Smart kid.
So...Rays, how about kicking the crap out of the Red Sox? The answer is either yes, or yes.
