RF Ken Griffey
I remember that after the 1981 season, Bill James had ranked Ken Griffey as the third best right fielder in the American League and commented that it is hard to imagine that when he was in his prime, he was no better than the seventh best player in his team's starting line-up.

This is shaping up to be a wide-open October.
There's no clear-cut favorite this year as opposed to past years.

There's more to playoff success than just winning. Sometimes, you have to go into enemy territory outside your stadium and walk the walk.

Homeplate umpire was deservedly upset when the Dodgers bench was questioning the balls and strikes. When the ump stated he didn't want to hear anymore...Kemp screamed encouragement to his teammate...which got him ejected...as well as Mattingly. Which of course, got Kemp so hot and bothered that he ran out and from what I saw, bumped the umpire at least once."Danny Ainge needs to shut the f--- up and manage his own team. He was the biggest whiner going when he was playing and I know that because I coached against him...." Pat Riley to Danny Ainge

Seriously, I just watched the highlights and read the story. Evidently Kemp was kicked out for simply shouting, "Let's Go Dre!" to Andrew Ethier when he was batting, after the ump told him to not say another word when questioning a strike call. So, now it is against the rules to cheer on your teammates while they are batting?

Blanton was later thrown out for asking the ump a question. The ump followed him and kicked him out.
I have watched more and more games this year where I see a lot of incompetence by the umps (a lot of it coming from Campos). Where it seems umps go out of their way to cause issues.
