Normally I'd cheer for the Reds and maybe the Nationals, but I'm cheering for them to lose spectacularly due to inept CF/lead off play which causes them to strongly consider overpaying for a commodity the Twins are chalk full of.

I'll be cheering for the Tigers because I want to see Mike Ilitch rewarded for the long-term risk he took (and, since I don't have any intradivisional hatred, I always root for the A.L. Central team just like I always root for the Big Ten in the bowls). But I would also be happy to see wins by the Orioles or A's. The Rangers less so and the Yankees not at all.
I don't have particularly strong feelings about the National League but Cincinnati and St. Louis (if they are in). Would also be happy to see the Braves win. Less so the Giants and Nationals. Dodgers not at all.

I'm pulling for the Oakland A's in the AL and Cincinnati Reds in the NL. I think it'd be nice to find out what the 'back-up' teams are here. Baseball just isn't as fun when you don't have any rooting interest!
Oh man... the key matchup will be Jose Rijo vs Dave Stewart. I have a feeling Billy Hatcher will play a key role!
I would normally root for the Nats as I don't dislike any of their players but I would like them to lose every game that Strasburg would have been slated to start.
AL meh... now that the Rays are eliminated I guess the Orioles or A's.
My dream is for the Yankees and Rangers to play the play-in game. I think that would be funny.

We posted this just a bit ago, but my answer is obvious - just look at my sig.
There's nothing in either the Twins Talk or the More Baseball feeds that would suggest it. My apologies on the repetition.
Oh, no worries! Just that I'd put in a whole Braves postseason preview into the last one, so I didn't want to bore everyone with it again! This is my absolute favorite time of the year. There is no such thing as too much postseason baseball talk. It's the NCAA tourney for professional baseball.
