A couple of really interesting articles on Yahoo! Sports today. This one, by Dan Wetzel, contained two statistics that really amazed me:

1) The combined payrolls of the Diamondbacks, Rockies and Indians are $21 million less than the payroll of the New York Yankees.

2) A-Rod is on an 0-for-48 streak in playoff games away from Yankee Stadium.

Another Yahoo! article worth reading is at the link and gives a nice look at some of the Rockies and Diamondbacks players. When you consider that most of the Rockies outside of Todd Helton were virtually unknown three weeks ago, and the most famous player on the Diamondbacks is Randy Johnson, who hasn't pitched since June 28, it's pretty helpful.

It's been an entertaining matchup so far between the Rockies Jeff Francis and the D'Backs Brandon Webb in game 1 of the NLCS. The Rockies are up 4-1 in the 6th as I write this. Can anyone beat these guys???
