Puffing in the 2011 Playoffs—Where to Smoke A Cigar in Baseball’s Postseason
Cigar Aficionado's guide to where you can smoke in MLB’s playoff cities.
Posted: September 29, 2011
(continued from page 1)
Milwaukee has surprisingly good pitching this year, with Yovani Gallardo, Zack Greinke, Shaun Marcum and Randy Wolf. Milwaukee has John Axford closing games, being set up by Frankie “K-Rod” Rodriguez, who seems to find ways to say or do the wrong thing at the worst time every year. Milwaukee, whose hitting has been inconsistent beyond Braun and Fielder most of the year, will score enough against a Snakes pitching staff with a combined 3.78 ERA. That’s not much worse than Milwaukee’s at 3.64, but it’s enough of a difference.
I think the Crew win this round easily over Arizona, then falls to Philadelphia in the NLDS.
THE WORLD SERIES
In a Texas-Philadelphia matchup, I’m picking the Rangers. The much-improved bullpen guides me to that selection. Also, the Rangers hit. I mean, they really hit. Philly can hit, but doesn’t always do so. Of course, the Phillies have the best pitching in baseball and that was the same challenge the Rangers faced last year. Still, Texas crushes the ball. Did I mention that?
Where to Smoke a Cigar in the Playoff CitiesWhile I will be watching the games at home and enjoying fine cigars and beverages, here’s where to catch a puff if you go to the games.
York City still ranks number one in places to enjoy a cigar. If you’re
going to Texas, check out other possibilities in Dallas and Fort Worth.
In Detroit, the stadium has a cigar bar in it, a few good places in the
city, and Windsor, Ontario, where you can go buy and smoke (outdoors) a
Cuban cigar, is just across the river. Tropicana Field, where the Rays
play, is the worst stadium in baseball, but has a cigar bar in it.
Without further delay, here’s the list of my recommended places.
