I guess I'm an American League fan for this post-season. I don't really care for any of the NL teams and I kind of like Houston and Cleveland. As long as the World Series doesn't go to:

Cubs
Dodgers
Res Sox
Yankees

...I'll be OK with whoever ultimately wins.

I'm pulling for Cleveland. They are a small market team that usually doesn't have much success. Plus, they have Edwin.

I think the only Yankee I like is Aaron Judge.


I think you'll like this and agree with most of it.

I thought you'd appreciate that one.

I'm not surprised that the Evil Empire knocked out the Twins. I feel pretty confident that the Indians will return the favor.

I'm pulling for the Astros tonight.

Im hoping for back to back WS titles from the Cubs

I read about Aaron Judge who broke McQwire's record , that dude looks like a beast at 6'7 at 282 lbs

You should see him standing beside Jose Altuve, the shortest guy in the league! It might look Photoshopped, but I've seen several pictures of them standing beside each other.

That was a pretty wild game last night. I was really pulling for the Rockies though.

I really didn't care who won last night but I was sort of pulling for the Dbacks because I think they stand a better chance of beating LA.

Watching the Astros and Bosox now and in this one I DO care.  Great pitching matchup with Sale vs Verlander. Go 'stros!

Lol, Sale got pounded!
I was going for the Rockies because I don't like Greinke; he looks like some kind of serial killer.

Sale has pretty much sucked the last third of the season.

Now watching the Evil Empire vs The Tribe.

The Jays pounded Sale his last start against them. He hadn't allowed a run against the Jays in the other three stays against them this season.


Cleveland is going to win this series easily. Their starring pitching is much better than the Yankees, their bullpen is as good or better, and I think their position players are better.

How the hell is Angel Hernandez the home plate umpire for this game? Was this part of a settlement of his BS lawsuit?

I flipped over to the NLDS when the Yankees had an 8-3 lead over the Indians. Once the Shlubs went up 3-0 I went back to MLB Network thinking the Dodgers/Dbacks game was on there. To my surprise the Indians/Yankees game was still on and it was 8-8 in the 13th.

And the Indians just won 9-8.

And to make the night even better, the Cubs had a 3-1 lead going into the eighth but the Nats exploded for 5 runs and won 6-3

I was away on the weekend celebrating my anniversary. I didn't get to watch anything.


It makes me very happy to see all the sad Boston faces! There's not a team I hate more than the Red Sox. I even like the Yankees better now.

Yeah I think I agree with you.

The Yankees  have more "home grown" players, or at least minor league guys they traded for instead of buying.   Plus I like Aaron Judge.  I also respect Joe Girardi.  Did you see his press conference after the Yankees won yesterday?  He started tearing up because he genuinely cares about how the fans and all the team's support staff feel about the team and it tears him up when the team loses; not only because he doesn't want to lose but because he feels like he let all those people down.  

I've liked Girardi ever since the day he was the Cubs catcher and had to come out and announce to the Wrigley Field crowd that a Saturday afternoon game against St. Louis was being cancelled because the Cardinals found the game's starter Daryl Kile dead in his hotel room.  He was emotional then too.  I think Girardi is a genuinely good human being.

Yeah, I think you summed it up pretty well. When the Jays play the Yankees, I never seem to get annoyed at Girardi. Some of the managers for the other teams, I just can't stand.

I like Aaron Judge as well. He doesn't seem arrogant or cocky at all; he seems to be quite humble for a guy who's accomplished what he did this summer.

I just read that the Red Sox fired John Farrell. I don't care for Farrell, but it's a tough gig when you win the division and then get fired.

And you've won a World Series on your watch.

I don't care about Farrell one way or the other but watching the press conference from the GM today on MLB Network just reeked of corporate BS.  Just doing something to appease the fans in Boston who suddenly expect their team to win the WS every damn year.

We get some of that "spoiled fan" crap here too. People are calling for Mike Matheny to be fired as the Cardinals manager because the team has now missed the post-season two years in a row. Waaaaaah...cry me a river. Other teams haven't made the post-season for a lot longer. I'd have no problem with Matheny being fired but it's because I think he over-manages and makes moves that are unnecessary. And he has this annoying tendency to play guys he knows over guys he doesn't even if the guys he doesn't are producing a lot more than the guys he knows. But not because St Louis has missed the post-season two years in a row. Big deal.
