The Great Debate

We’ve had some good baseball in the playoffs. The Twins/Yankees series looks like it’s the marquise matchup though, as we had a great pitching matchup last night, and now the Twins are down by single run in the bottom of the seventh.

A challenge has been issued. Upstart blogger and close personal friend Blade Stevens (it still kind of creeps me out calling him that) has continually argued over the years that the 1975 Reds were Sparky Anderson’s best team.

And that’s an odd statement, considering the fact that Sparky managed the 1984 Tigers, and we all know that was his best team. We’re going to hash it all out between the two blogs and we’re going to debate, position by position, which team was better. If you follow the above link, Blade wants to run a Diamond Mind simulation as well, but I’m not making any promises.

The Twins just doubled up Sheffield. The game’s going into the eighth and the Yankees added a run.

Tigers Central handed out their post season awards. If you’ve never been to the site, it’s got some top notch writers, and some great analysis. It’s no surprise that I completely agree with their choices.

Roger Clemens wasn’t on top of his game, but still notched the win. He walked six batters in seven innings. The seven strikeouts helped, but Atlanta stranded twelve runners. It’s Oswalt vs. Hampton tomorrow.

Two runs off of Gordon and Rivera, and the game is tied. If the Twins can get out of this inning, they have the advantage. They’ll have Nathan for probably the ninth, and if needed, the tenth. Rivera probably won’t pitch more then one more inning, seeing as how he threw fifteen pitches to get the two outs in the eighth.

Enjoy the rest of the game.
