stats. dig it. based upon my calculations: the greatest threat for the yankees is tampa bay. minnesota is not to be overlooked. giants, atlanta: OUT. rockies: IN. whomever takes the alcs will face the phillies and beat them.
thus: YANKEES v. TEXAS > YANKEES TAMPA BAY v. MINNESOTA > TAMPA BAY >
YANKEES v. TAMPA BAY > ?
PHILLIES v. COLORADO > PHILLIES CINCINNATI v. PADRES > CINCINNATI
PHILLIES v. CINCINNATI > PHILLIES
of course, we've eliminated the AARON BOONE, BUCKY DENT AND BILL BUCKNER factors...i'mjussayin...
