Baseball: Let the playoffs (almost) begin

Baseball's regular season is over ... almost. Seven playoff spots are set, with only the American League Central race between Chicago and Minnesota unresolved. Minnesota leads Chicago by one-half game, and the White Sox have a makeup game set Monday against Detroit. If Chicago wins, they play Minnesota Tuesday for the Central crown. A loss gives the Twins the division and a playoff date with Tampa Bay. Boston plays the Anaheim Angels in the other American League playoff series.

In the National League, some team's long World Series drought will end when the Dodgers, Cubs, Phillies and Brewers meet in the playoffs. The Dodgers last made the World Series in 1988 (they won), the Cubs in 1945 (last won in 1908), the Phillies in 1993 (last won in 1980) and the Brewers in 1982 (never won as Milwaukee Brewers). I bet that Fox, which broadcasts the Series, is rooting hard for a Cubs-Red Sox finale. My prediction? The first Freeway Series, Dodgers vs. Angels, with the Angels winning it all.
