Let the playoffs begin

Wow, what a great ballgame last night to determine the A.L. Central champs. The Twins won the tiebreaker game in the bottom of the 12th, but it was back-and-forth all night long.

In my humble opinion, I think the Tigers actually played better baseball. (How 'bout that defense from Brandon Inge and Ryan Rayburn?) The Twins got the breaks, though. You gotta love that about this wonderful, crazy game of baseball... sometimes, the best team loses.

One criticism I have of last night's broadcast - What's the deal with these announcers? God, they were awful. The on-field reporter was worthless and couldn't hardly speak in a complete sentence, Ron Darling didn't add anything of value, and the play-by-play guy was certainly nothing special. Is this what we're gonna be subjected to throughout the division series? And then, in the ALDS, we'll get the added commentary of David Wells! Wells was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon a couple days ago, and he was just downright creepy.

At least the World Series will be on Fox.
