How about that for starters?
October 7, 2010 - Seth Staskey
The greatest time of the baseball season got under way this past Wednesday. The Major League Baseball Divisional series got under way with some impressive pitching performances.
Actually, there were two pitching performances more than impressive. Philadelphia ace Roy Halladay -- a near lock for the N.L. Cy Young Award -- pitched the second no hitter in playoff history against the Reds. He was dominant, throwing 104 pitches and 79 for strikes. That's almost unbelievable.
Over-shadowed was the brilliant effort by Rangers' ace Cliff Lee who continues to prove his worth in October. He stymied the Rays after the first inning when they loaded the bases, but failed to score. Other than a solo home run, the Rays were hooked.
The playoffs continue for most of the month and I know that's what I will be glued to. I will watch baseball over NFL any day of the week. Other than 3 hours of watching OSU Saturday, I will be tuned into baseball all weekend.
I am sticking with the Yankees for the World Series title. I think they're going to beat Texas in the ALCS and then take out Philadelphia in 7. I look for the Phillies and Giants to go 7 in the NLCS and whoever's pitching staff blinks is going to win.
