Playoff Baseball...I live for this

Playoff baseball, nothing better. The GreenJackets have made the postseason for a third straight year and once again have the highest winning percentage among all full season teams. Also, for a second straight year the pitching staff has the lowest ERA in all of Minor League Baseball.

I am saying it now, but in two or three years, the San Francisco Giants are going to be stacked with good young arms that can flat out pitch. On top of that, the position players coming up are young, fast and exciting to watch. Keep an eye out. Tim Lincecum was just the first of many good young talented guys coming up.

Playoff baseball though, there is just something about it that is exciting. The air, the atmosphere, the level of play. It is all just enhanced. The crowd is much more into it and all the hard work done through out the year comes to one culminating moment in time.

I have been fortunate enough to be part of playoff baseball the last three years, one in Wilmington and the last two here in Augusta. I can’t wait to see how far this team goes in Augusta. They are the best I have ever broadcasted for.

I was out there tonight with them and they are just really loose and having fun still. Everyone is joking with each other and the guys just seem to know that the season isn’t over yet, they still have to win four more games, then they can go home. Because with four more wins, they are the South Atlantic League Champions.
