    Detroit has a really good team, but I think the White Sox could still sneak the division. Regarding the Wild Card, my heart says Boston, but my head says it'll be someone from the Central.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    They're going really well, it never ceases to amaze me what an impact Ivan Rodriguez has on a young team. Florida 2003, now Detroit 2006.

    As for the AL...well...who knows? I'm thinking maybe the loser of AL Central, but I have a feeling Boston will get on a streak and they're only 5 behind so they could get there. And of course Minnesota are currently leading for the Wild Card so can't write them off.

    The more I think about it, the more I think that Boston's only shot is to win the division. I'd love if the Yankees missed the playoffs. It'd be my dream scenario, after my eternal dream that Chelsea gets relegated from the Prem.

    Re: Ivan Rodriguez, I've been a fan of his since his Texas days a little while back, and he's a terrific player and leader. He did a decent job with the 2005 Tigers too. I didn't expect them to be holding on this well, but then the White Sox (a more likely challenger than the Twins IMO) have been a disappointment.

    I think Boston seems to be tanking it in. I think mentally they've given up on the season. I would be very surprised if they come back to win the AL East. I think the Wild Card winner will come from the Central.

    You know Ivan Rodriguez is my favorite player of all time. When I first started watching baseball, Pudge was a rookie hot shot catcher for the Texas Rangers. He immediately became my favorite player and I've admired him ever since. To me, he is the best catcher of all time. Yogi and Bench supporters will dispute that, but neither of them had an arm like Pudge, plus he can match them offensively. No one has had a greater impact (defensively) on a game than Pudge. Opposing players are afraid to stray too far off the bag, managers usually don't call a steal on him, and he just has that intimidation factor all around. One of the saddest days of my sport watching life was when the Rangers let him walk away in free agency. The local press was almost gleeful when that happened. They always said that Pudge "didn't work well with pitchers, didn't call a good game, and only concentrated on throwing runners out". Well Pudge worked plenty well with Florida's young pitchers on his way to the World Series! And now he's doing the same with Det. Class player and all time legend. I now end my tribute to Pudge. You may resume regularly scheduled programming.

    Anyone been watching the World Series so far?

    I managed to last the whole of the 4th game this morning, was pretty good with Cardinals winning 4-3. I reckon the Tigers will pull one back today and then St Louis will finish it off in the 6th game.

    I missed today's game, watched the first three though. I'd like to see it go to 7 but I probably want the Cardinals to win in the end.

    With Rodriguez struggling so much with the bat Detroit seem to be struggling a bit as he's such an inspirational guy. Hope he can bounce back in Game 5.
