I'm sure the Giant's pitching had something to do with this as well. Wouldn't put down Lincecum, Wilson, and their bullpen.

No team can beat the Phillies, they can only beat themselves, and that's what happened.

I see you're still in denial. Well, for those of us in reality, the game's on, though I doubt anyone would want to watch either of those two play.

Nah, they both have pitiful fan bases. San Francisco published an article specifically for bandwagon jumpers, and Texas went bankrupt recently for God's sake! Two teams that have never won a World Series, have no history, and honestly aren't much fun to watch.

Well, the World Series ended, with the Giants becoming champions for the first time since 1954, and the first time in San Francisco. Has there ever been anything more boring and uneventful? Thank God it only lasted five games.

This was perhaps the worst series matchup in history, nobody n the US really cared one way or another other than a few folks in San Fran or Texas. This is the first world series that I can remember (and I've been watching since '96) in which I really didn't give a crap at all. Two nobody teams who overachieved and beat 2 better teams who played like garbage in the LCS.

This is the modern game. The long season, which used to insure that the two best teams met in the world series, has become less relevant with the advent of divisions and wild card teams. Imagine the '27 Yankees having to play a 5 game series against a wild card team, having a short 3 game batting slump and being eliminated. Ridiculous!

That's an excellent point. The modern setup is what allows for these brutal upsets to occur. Although it is minimal in baseball since the MLB has the smallest playoff format. Just think of all the NBA and NHL upsets!

Jayson Werth turns down arbitration. Seems all but certain that he won't be wearing red pinstripes next year.

Phillies steal Cliff Lee from the Yanks and Rangers. The Phillies' 2011 rotation is as follows:

1. Roy Halladay
2. Cliff Lee
3. Roy Oswalt
4. Cole Hamels

The National League has got to be shuddering at the thought.

I would just like to point out that the Cincinnati Reds share the league's top record along with the Nationals. That doesn't even make sense.

The Reds will be put to the test with Votto and Phillips hurt, and the Pie Plates coming to town. Plus Cueto seems to tire historically in the second half of the year and that is happening again.

The Reds trade strikeout king Drew Stubbs to Cleveland and get Shin-Soo Choo in return (and $3.5M to boot). Looks like a steal for the Rojos.

Cleveland also signed Mark Reynolds. One sly blooger notes that there will be a lot of insects killed in Cleveland next summer.

The AL East is going to be amazing this year, in that I think, with the exception of the Oriole's, there will be no more than a 4-6 game window between the teams at any given point in the season, it'll be that tight. Of course, I'm biased toward my hometown Blue Jays with all the sexy pickups this off-season, but I'm staying realistic. The Yankees always seem to be in the conversation no matter what, but sorry Red Sox fans. This year will suck. Bad.
