Well, we are through one round of the playoffs and there were some interesting results. Moving onto the next round we have the following match-ups:
Texas Rangers v. Detroit Tigers
Milwaukee Brewers v. St. Louis Cardinals
This weeks question is fairly simple. What team was the biggest surprise/letdown in the ALDS?
For me there was one surprise, and that was the Cardinals beating the Phillies. With the starting rotation of the Phillies I really didn't see them getting bounced in the first round.
You may be wondering if I was surprised by the Yankees getting bounced, but I really wasn't. The team wasn't hitting at all with the exception of Cano, Posada, and Gardner. Hard to win games when you can get guys on base. Was I disappointed, sure. Surprised, not at all. Tigers played better.
