Dre Bly - ALCS - NLCS

I came across a perfectly stated tweet by @RealSkipBayless tonight.

RealSkipBayless I cannot remember an NFL coach ordering a public apology from a player, and little surprised DBly agreed to. That's the power of Singletary.

Skip is right. Singletary commands respect and has earned it. This guy coaches as if he is still roaming the middle of the great Bears defense he played for - that is why I have become a huge fan - not just because he has excellent post game drops. It's a nice change of pace seeing an NFL coach command that his players play the right. Dre Bly didn't cost his team the game, but he sure did cash in on some embarrassment - don't showboat when your team is getting their butts handed to them every each way.

Predictions for the American League Championship Series

  • Yankees in 6
  • 3-Man Rotation works for the Yankees
Prediction for the National League Championship Series

  • Phillies in 7
  • Cole Hamels comes up big - I love that man!

Swisher Sweets

I have always been a huge fan of Nick Swisher. Swisher loves his job and he shows it. Whenever you see Swisher on the field he is having the time of his life. He acts like he is the 8 year old on his local little league just happy to be out on the field playing the game he grew up on. I get a lot of flack from my friends because I have a lot of "man love" for Swish, but I can't help it. Since I started following Swish on Twitter (@NickSwisher) I have realized that he really likes to do a lot for charity. You have to respect the athletes that give back - since they make a TON of money. Swish's Wishes is a charity that Swish endorses. If you feel lead to donate, you can buy a Swish Shirt on the site to benefit a child.

Monday night quick hitters:
  • The Phillies never give up. Props to Brad Lidge for closing the game out. Rough year, but you have to love Charlie Manuel sticking by his guy.
  • The J-E-T-S have to love what they saw from Braylon tonight. I see him being a key part in the evolution of Mark Sanchez.
  • Won Week 5 Pick Em in the CBS Pool. : )
