Five Things I'm Loving About the 2011 Postseason

1. Tony Plush!

2.

LCS team2011 opening-day payroll rank
Tigers10th
Cardinals12th
Rangers13th
Brewers16th

3. From @BizballMaury:

Amazing... The total payrolls for the Yankees and Philles together equal $375,665,407. Total for the 4 teams left in the LCS? $388,930,400

4. Per Tom Verducci of SI.com, "No NL team...has led the league in wins and won the World Series since the 1995 Braves."

5. Jim Leyland.

Lovin' Tony Plush!

It's nice to see him and the Brewers take the DBacks out. After the Giants won it all last year, the last thing I want to see is another NL West team go deep into the playoffs.

Crap, I hope this doesn't mean the Raiders are coming back.

I used to bum smokes from Leyland when I was a batboy for the Pirates.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd love to sit around and chain smoke with Leyland.

Nic's comment made zero sense until I got the context from Twitter.

2011 NFC Championship: Green Bay vs. division rival.
2011 NLCS: Milwaukee vs. division rival.

I love when stuff like that happens.
