Phillies 1 - Yankees 1

The series is tied one game apiece. What's going to happen tonight as the series moves to Philadelphia? I sure would like to see the Phillies win the series. The Yankees knocked out my Angels.

A Baseball Day

Yesterday the National League Championship Series began. The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Dodgers in Game 1 on the Dodgers home turf. Although I live in Los Angeles, as an Angel fan it didn't break my heart. I know lots of folks here in L.A. want a freeway series, but a bi-coastal World Series usually attracts a larger viewing audience. So I'd prefer an Angels/Phillies series to an Angels/Dodgers one. On the other hand, the Angels have beaten the Dodgers in interleague play with remarkable consistency over the last decade.

Today we get Game 2 of the NLCS early in the day followed by Game 1 of the American League Championship Series in the evening. In that series the Angels will be taking on the New York Yankees in the new Yankee Stadium. Go Angels!!!

It's October

Where did the last two weeks go? I know... it was the end of regular season baseball. What a finale the Twins and Tigers gave us in an American League Central tiebreaker!

Now we're into the playoffs. I love October. One month of multiple games per day leading up to the World Series. Sadly, it's followed by five months of no baseball.
