ation on the "arrogant" Yankee fans...hah.

And you're right, Mr. Welch -- the Bronx boys handled the loss with class.

Congratulations to the Angels, now they get the Twins who will be tough. I don't think Troy Percival was as impressed with the Yankees supposed class when he drilled Soriano between the numbers for taking a curtain call in the 6th inning of the second game of the series but whatever. Angels and Twins should be an excellent series.

Here's another Yankee fan who hates to lose but was impressed by the Angels. Your team played brilliantly and will be tough to beat the rest of the way. Enjoy it!

Good fans admit when their team was beaten. I'll be blunt and simple. The Angels were the better team. They out-pitched, out-hit, out-hustled, and out-played the Yankees. The Angels were a joy to watch. Their enthusiasm, energy and confidence warms the heart of any baseball fan. I almost want them to win the LCS to finally play in the World Series. Almost

I have to root for the Twins. Two reasons.

1) I hate the wild card. Absolutely hate it. It demeans a good regular season playoff race. The idea of a wild card team in the world series causes my teeth to grind. So, sorry Anaheim, I know you have the better record, but you are still the wild card team.

2) I want to see Bud Selig "congratulate" Carl Pohlad (insert obligatory Montgomery Burns reference here) for the "success" of the Twins this year. The pure discomfort and hypocrisy of the moment would be a joy to behold. Catching part of Jim Rome on my way to the office this afternoon, I heard a report that Torii Hunter (or was it Jacque Jones?) poured a bottle of champagne down the back of Pohlad's pants saying, "You needed that."
