Let the Post Season Begin

On the wood working front the finishing process on the Narra case is in progress. I offered up my Jatoba case up for sale which can be seen over on SRK.com, membership of the site is required to view items in the trading forums. I also have two Painted MDF cases nearing completion. I plan on continuing this form of selling for a while so I can appease my creative side, and use up my stock of hardwood.

However the next week to month will have my attention on Baseball. My Chicago Cubs clinched their place in the post season back on Sept 20. This gave Lou a chance to rest some players and setup his pitching rotation for the first round of the playoffs. In fact the Cubs were the first team in the majors to punch their ticket this year. This is a step up from last year when they won the wild card spot. One tidbit of trivia needs to be stated here. This is the first time that the Cubs have appeared in the post season in back to back years since they last won the World Series 100 years ago.

This evening the Cubs open up the series in Chicago against the L.A. Dodgers. Does this year’s Cubs have what it takes to win the World Series? In this humble fan’s opinion, yes I believe they do. They have 5 players belting 20 or more home runs this season. Their pitching rotation and bullpen that is one of the best in the majors. I think that they do have a good chance.

Heck with the result of a one game playoff last night the World Series could be entirely played in Chicago. The White Sox were able to win last night in a 1-0 game against the Minnesota Twins. This gave the White Sox the wild card spot in the American League. With last nights game the table is finally set for the post season. So needless to say this post season could be a very interesting one.

Game On!
