Let's Get to the Post Season already!!

All teams have clinched their post-season playoff berth, except for either San Diego or Colorado (GO ROCKIES!) - as I write this, the score has ping-ponged back into the lead for the Rockies 6-5 in the 6th on a Matsui (not Hikeki) sac fly.

MLB has also announced the shit-tastic ALCS and ALDS playoff schedules:

The Red Sox head a pre-playoff rally in Government Center. I wasn't there but it looked to be a good time!

A few things to note from today:
  • Josh Beckett will start Game 1 (duh)
  • Daisuke Matszaka will start Game 2 (Now THIS comes as a surprise to me!)
  • Schilling, then, will be the starter for Game 3
  • David Ortiz was named AL Player of the Month for September
  • Jacoby Ellsbury was named AL Rookie of the Month for September
And, the Red Seat unleashed a brand new Red Sox shirt which is pretty cool!

I may have to pick one of these up, I get a lot of compliments on my other Red Seat shirts! (I didn't get paid to say this or post an image of the shirt, I truly like it!)
