is there any way to watch the playoffs on the internet – similar to regular season?

I mean no disrespect to the selection of Martin and I understand the value of getting SB out of the catching position, but how isn’t Mauer the choice? Mauer has more runs, RBI, higher BA, and three less home runs than Martin. He also has a higher OPS and more Runs Created. Is Martin the pick because of one category?

As they said on the show, if anything the pick at catcher probably could’ve been McCann.

Wow… I don’t understand why K-Rod wasn’t the closer of the year for fantasy. I mean 60+ saves? All you need on top of that is one extra closer and you’re going to compete at the top in saves. Poor selection…

That being said, your show is great. Love watching it all year. Keep the insights and analysis coming our way!

I can buy picking Mariano over K-Rod, the differences in WHIP and ERA are huge.

However: Manny!
I’d pick him over Holliday (and maybe Beltran)

Manny vs Holliday:
-5 runs, +12 in HR, +33 RBI, -25 SB, +.020 AVG

Manny vs Beltran
-14 R, +10 HR, +9 RBI, -22 SB, + .048 AVG
