As for the weekend, the big story was the beginning of the MLB Playoffs. To be honest, I don't have nearly as much invested in the playoffs this year as I did last year when the Brewers won the division and beat Arizona in the first round before bowing out to St. Louis in the NLCS.
I'm sure I will watch more of the action during the week when the NFL isn't on, but I don't have any interest in any of the teams still playing, except to see the Cardinals lose. I thought Yahoo! Sports did a pretty good job discussing the playoffs and really took interest into some of the blog posts in particular.
Tim Brown wrote about the Oakland A's chances, which are dwindling and its season could be over today against Detroit. The A's weren't expected to make the playoffs, much less win the rugged AL West. The A's are a great story and Brown does a nice job diagramming their season. I'd compare Brown to ESPN's Jayson Stark in regards to using statistics to back up his statements. Well done.
