So, To Recap

Of the seven series this October, five were sweeps, one was 3-1, and the Red Sox/Indians ALCS had about three and a half innings of drama after Game Four.

That was, by far, the least interesting baseball playoffs I've ever watched. Its only saving grace is that the best team actually won in the end, but that hardly makes things much better, considering who that team is.

What do we get out of this postseason? A bitter ending to the Colorado fairytale, a new reputation for CC Sabathia and Fausto Carmona as Alex Rodriguez-level chokers, a bunch of articles about how Jon Papelbon is the best closer in the league, and a near guarantee that Jacoby Ellsbury will be the most overrated young player in baseball next year.

Thanks a lot, October. You sucked.
