Playoff Season

For those of you not paying attention, minor league baseball has started. Most start tonight today or tomorrow, but some are in full swing. In the Appalachian League (Rookie) the Pulaski Yankees have already eliminated the Bluefield Blue Jays and the Elizabethton Twins and Greeneville Astros are playing a rubber match tonight. After that, they'll immediately start the League Championship series.

Tonight I'll have to make a choice between listening to the Elizabethton-Greeneville game or watching one of the Frontier League (Independent) playoffs. My favorite independent baseball team, the mighty Evansville Otters are taking on the Schaumburg Boomers while the Florence Freedom take on the Washington Wild Things. Others that I'll be paying attention to are the Eugene Emeralds who start playing in the Northwest League (Rookie) playoffs tonight and the Mahoning Valley Scrappers who I think will start playing their NY-Penn League (Short-A) playoff Friday.

The rest of the playoffs I'm interested in start Wednesday. I'll be keeping an eye on the Gary Southshore Railcats in the American Association (Independent), the Kannapolis Intimidators in the South Atlantic League (A), the Dayton Dragons and the Bowling Green Hot Rods of the Midwest League (A), the El Paso Chihuahuas of the Pacific League (AAA), and the Pensacola Blue Wahoos of the Southern League (AA).

Good luck everyone and my favorite teams win!
