I gotta go with Oakland. This team was white hot in the second half & went into the playoffs on a high. Seattle has been cruising almost all season & is totally complacent & arrogant. Cleveland will defeat seattle & Oakland will advance & defeat the Toons, then win the big dance.

The Oakland A's your 2001 World Series Champs.

I am thinking the A's and the Cardinal's,I won't predict a winner though.

I'm thinking the A's, too. But I really need to add Daver's alternative signature here. Of course, I can't because he'll get on my case. :)

Is it bad that I am rooting for Cleveland to beat Seattle? I think the A's also, but you can never count out the Yankees. Whoever wins that series shoulkd go to the series. I won't even speculate on the NL. They clearly are the second best league, IMO.

remember what happened to the cubs who won that many games? (clue: "hitless wonders")

we'll just have to rough it in ALCS, could be fun especially if we get to watch A's munching up that Toon meat

Is it bad? not really. I just find it impossible to root for the tribe, unless they played the cubs in the world series. then id root for the tribe.

I agree that Oakland will be the AL representatives. I think it will be Arizona in the NL, because Schilling and the Big Unit will be so important in short playoff series.
