The "Frog Days of Fall" are heating up this weekend as the Major League Baseball League Championship series gets underway. And, who'd thought it would come down to these four teams?

Most people I talked to thought this year's World Series would pit the Yankees against the Phillies; after all the Yankees have all those sluggers and the Phillies the best pitching. Didn't happen as we know.

Game one in the AL League Championship series takes to the field tonight at 8:05 p.m., when the Texas Rangers host the Detroit Tigers. Justin Verlander, the right-hander takes to the mound for the Tigers, while the Rangers will give left-hander C.J. Wilson the start.  Game one in the NLCS starts Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. (going against NFL Football, no less) with the Milwaukee Brewers playing host to the St. Louis Cardinals.

I began with the question: "Who'd thought"? Well, I have to admit, that I told a few friends that I thought that the Milwaukee Brewers were hungry...and may just pull it off. And, I thought that the Yankees would have the toughest time getting by the Tigers, not Texas. So, not that I can predict sports outcomes, but I had a hunch that the Brewers and the Tigers would stay alive. Now the question is how long?
