Seriously this time......Looks to everyone's surprise that the Dodgers and Padres might be playing the best, healthiest, and might be the favorites to come out of the NL now.

Surprising what a month will do to change everyone's perception of each league. Should be interesting to see what the vegas odds are on Mondayfor both leagues.

I agree with that. Either one could be the WS contestant for the NL. I expect them both to win their ALDS series.

I agree with the poster above me who said the Astros are the team to fear. A)They have done this before, like last year and the year before, and B)they ride their hot streaks for a VERY long time and this one has only been going on for about a month or so.

And with Pedro being out for the postseason the Mets are screwed.

The Astros need a lot of help if they want to stay in the race. They cannot lose and must hope the Cardinals lose twice. They are likely the best team not to make the playoffs this season.

Think the Dodgers are going to be a surprise throughout the playoffs

I guess I have to root for the one team in the playoffs that has never won it all.

They'll be usable for trips around NYC in January. Neither New York team will be in the series this year. The Twins will take the Yankees out and the Mets won't get past the Dodgers.

Not so fast my friend! If El Duque is out for this series the Mets are going to be hard pressed to win if they have to rely on guys like Trachsel, Perez, and John Maine to win tight postseason games for them.

To be honest, I'd say the A's are the team the Yanks don't want to see in the next round. The A's took 6 of 9 from the Yanks this year taking four of six at the Bronx including a three game sweep.

The Twins did not play badly today. Barry Zito showed why he won a Cy Young award. He is not a bad pitcher, nor are Harden, Haren and Blanton.
