It's not how you drive. It's how you arrive.

95 wins.

A rotating turnstile on the pitching mound with some misses (Smoltz, Penny) and some hits (Wagner, Saito), the proud veterans who are headed into the sunset (Wake, Tek) the young guys with a rocket strapped on their back (Bard, and the two guys in the picture) and the guys rising like the Phoenix from what many assumed was the ashes of their career (Papi, A Gone).

Like Jerry and the fellas used to sing, What a Long Strange Trip it's Been.

After 162 games the year ended like 6 out of the last 7; the Boston Red Sox are in the playoffs and are squaring off against the Angels in round one while the Yankees play whoever wins the Steel Cage Playoff Tuesday night in Minnesota between the Twins and the Tigers.

Come Wednesday, 8 teams will all be 0-0. And in one month's time the World Series Champion will be crowned.

Playoff baseball is here.

And I can't wait to see what happens.

I've only just noticed that the Y*****s don't have to choose ALDS A or B until after the game at the Twins so my plan for taking most of Friday afternoon off is in limbo. Selig and Turner: the Axis Of Evil.

Yep. They get to wait and see although I can't imagine they won't take the earlier series just to not let whoever wins get some rest.
