Playoff season is right around the corner! Love this time of year. Big Nick thinks the Yankees have a team that can go all the way. The Astros are looking a little scary with that pitching they got. Nothin' wrong with some fun competition. Got some good matchups out there. Can't get your hopes up, though, for playing certain teams. That shit never turns out the way you want it to. You just gotta knuckle down and rep your team all the way! Nick is such a die hard fan, he'd love to just go on...
