Bummer for the A's. They had a ridiculously awesome overachieving season, but Verlander is too much of a beast.

Welp, no more baseball for me this season. No $100 million payroll = very little chance in October.
Well, the MLB gets their traditional powers in the LCS
Yankees (40 pennants) and Tigers (10 pennants)
Cardinals (18 pennants) and Giants (21 pennants)
All of them have won at least one pennant in the past ten years.
This is about as safe a LCS as you could ask for.
My home town was carved out of swampland.
Proud of the Beltway teams this year...both cut their teeth in the post-season a year or so ahead of schedule.
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."

I won't be watching either way
"In 2012 the Redskins are gonna be the NFC East champions, and that starts right f–king today.” Kyle Shanahan, 1/1/12
I can't understand the idea of not watching the playoffs just because the team you like lost. If you like baseball, you like baseball. Right?

Don't let the loss of two local teams jade your perception of the sport
Oh, and by the way...the Cards...that team that just beat the Nats? What was their payroll?
The notion linking payroll to success has always been overrated. The Red Sox before this year spent massive amounts of payroll to attempt to make the playoffs. So did the Angels. Neither team is in the postseason.
I guess when you buy yourself into the post season every year, it's not a big deal. Again, plenty of seats available for a Saturday night game in NY.

Will check with my dad on how yankees are doing after this. I'll only watch world series if it's his team or my boy's team who just started getting into baseball, too and likes detroit. Not watching NLCS or ALCS. Default: New York. Status: Desensitised.

We don't know what we think, we don't know what we know. All we have to go on, is what we say and what we show...
Anyway, not using it as an excuse at all. Small market teams can do well, big market teams can struggle. I'm simply saying if it's, say, a Yankees/Cardinals WS I have no intention of watching a single game.
There's a reason every other major sport has a salary cap, I'll just say that.
A salary cap wouldn't work in baseball. Too lazy to post the quote from the other forum statistically destroying any notion of the cap.
If I'm A-Rod, I'm saying to myself, "Why the hell isn't Cano getting booed?"
All you Yankee haters can rejoice
The Yankees were lucky to get past Baltimore, and barely proved they were better than them
However, throughout the series, other than game 1 9th inning, the Yankees struggled all series to hit and were frequently shut down by Orioles pitching. It's no surprise the same thing is happening tonight. A-rod, Granderson, Swisher, and Cano are 9/85. If this continues, you Yankee haters are going to have a field day. This offense just is stone cold right now.
