Freakin' Raul Ibanez!

Damn you Raul Ibanez! Damn you!

The Phillies are out of the playoffs, so I truly have no vested interest in any of the clubs currently playing in October, but I certainly dislike the friggin' Yankees more than the others.  However, I am pulling for the O's and A's, because I like their underdog story line and complete team/never give up mentality.  Former Phillie Raul Ibanez is doing his best to make sure that one of those teams doesn't move on to the next round in the American League Championship Series for the pennant.

Jim Johnson, he of 51 regular season saves and a 2.49 ERA, has been the culprit of Baltimore's meltdowns.  He allowed 3 homeruns all season long, spanning 68.2 innings.  Yet, it 4.1 postseason innings he's surrenders 2 4-baggers.  Last night, the killer blow came off the bat of Ibanez in the 9th inning to tie the game, who was pinch hitting for A-Rod (ballsy move by Girardi).  Then Ibanez did it again in the 12th inning, for the walk-off win.  Wow!  That's 2 homeruns for the Yankees in only 5 postseason at bats.  In comparison, he only hit 3 homeruns in 100 at bats in the playoffs for the Phillies.  Son of a...

So happy right now.

Wanted to see the O's go all the way, but glad to see the Gnats won't be celebrating.

Now to endure ESPN talking about the Strasburg absence for, like, three days.

I've been reading about MLB executives wishing nothing but failure for the Nationals in this postseason because of the stupid decision to shutdown Strasburg. Some are saying they hope they don't make it back to the playoffs for decades, just as way of showing them how stupid it was.

I agree with them. No guarantee that Strasburg doesn't blow his arm out at some point next season. Them losing couldn't happen to a nicer team (sarcasm). Arrogance to the hilt. I am with Aaron. The Nattitude of National Nation can suck it!

Strasburg or no Strasburg, I hate those dipshit Cardinals. If it comes down to a Yanks-Redbrids World Series, I may well root for the Yankees.
