You Can't Script October!

But you can predict that Fox will overplay any dramatic angle it will find in the 2005 baseball playoffs.

I predicted a few days ago to a friend that both the Red Sox and Yankees will make the playoffs. I say this because it just seems like it is fated, and also because I envision Rupert Murdoch pulling the strings so that this will come to pass and Fox can get the ratings boost of another exciting ALCS. Even better, we get what is essentially the start of playoff baseball this weekend when the Sox and Yanks clash at Fenway for the division title. It would be awfully nice to win the division for once, since the Red Sox didn't win it even last year when they captured the World Series title. (On the flip side, the non-division winner gets what looks like a weak White Sox team that is struggling mightily down the stretch--assuming they can even hold off Cleveland.)

I also need to commend the Blue Jays, Orioles, Devil Rays and Tigers today because they are all playing for pride and nothing else, and they still managed to beat all of the four playoff contenders in the East and Central last night.

This post is rather lame, I admit. Gimme a break, I've been sick as a dog and busy as God this week, and dog is God backwards to boot.
