The playoff picture grows clearer

Despite what Madisoncubaholic said in the shout box, I haven't found this year's playoffs to be too terribly exciting.  We had what, sweeps in every series but one?  The Yankees and the Angels -- two of the heavy hitters of the AL -- are playing for the Series.  In the NL we have the Dodgers and the Phillies, neither of whom surprised anybody by reaching the playoffs. 

In other words, yawn. 

Meanwhile, the Cubs have entered bankruptcy court in order to expedite their sale to the Ricketts clan.  I'm just happy that the light is visible at the end of this ridiculously long tunnel. 

That's all I've got for now.  Call it blogger burn-out if you will.  I'll just call it temporary indifference.  The Season Recaps will start soon, though.
