Predictions    

Sox in 5 (lose the Daisuke game and one crazy 13-12 type game)
Yanks in 4 (lose to Fausto, ARod series MVP)
Phillies in 5 (Mesa blows one game, starter blows another, Hamels pitches a gem this afternoon while I get toasted at Ludwig's)
Cubs in 4 (lose to Webb)

  • Cubs in 4? In what was does Arizona not look like the far superior team? I shocked the Cubs made it this far.

  • I agree- the dbacks are the better team. But i felt i had to pick an upset, and I hate the cubs, so figured good bet that they'll advance just to piss me off. But it'd piss me off less than any of the other series going the other way. Yes, I want the Sox to beat the Angels. Cause fuck the Angels.

    On a separate note, I guess one has to root for the dbacks, cause if they lose, we'll be subjected to Eric Byrnes, TV analyst, round 2. Shudder.

  • I agree that Drew won't start Game 5...

    Sox in 4
    Indians in 4
    Arizona in 3 (I shocked too, Jesse)
    Rockies in 5 (haaaaaa)

    Sox > Indians in 7
    Arizona > Rockies in 5
    Sox > Arizona in 5

    Unfortunately my rooting interest in the NL is probably the Cubs, if only because we'd be sure to see a Piniella-centric Dugout. Even a sanitized Lou would be worthwhile reading.

  • Also, why would a guy hitting in the .320s since 9/1 not start Game 5? I'm not saying he's awesome or anything, but there's definitely no grounds for benching anymore. If Matsui isn't getting benched, neither is Drew.

  • Oops, sorry, I was in a hurry. I guess actually you couldn't really consider the Diamondbacks a clear favorite given their run differential this year. I just dislike this Cubs team a lot for some reason. I think it's all the stupid money they spent.

    I'm rooting for Philly to beat whoever to beat whoever. Other than that I don't care much, except that I'd love to see the Yankees lose in the first round, particularly if Carmona and not Sabathia were to be the hero. But I don't think I could stomach an Indians world series win, so I really need Philly to go all the way.

  • The D-Backs have more pitching... given that both lineups lick the balls of a moose, I'm going with pitching over the Lee/Aramis/Soriano trio.

    But that whole series is absolute garbage. I'm trying to get psyched about Webb right now but I just can't. I think Zambrano is a meathead, and I wouldn't want to rely on two lefties beyond that. Especially when it's a three-man rotation. That seems destined for failure. (TED LILLY AND RICH HILL? WHAT WOULD LOU EVER WANT WITH THOSE COCKSUCKERS?)

  • I'd be OK with Philly unless they face the Sox. Cause then the Phidiots will come out of the woodwork and make me hate them. I don't want to, really I don't, but a well-trained Phidiot will undoubtedly give me no choice but to wish a Buckneresque hell upon them.

    I obviously prefer the Indians, but what do you have against them, Jesse? Do you still have bitter feelings about the Shin-Soo trade? Or do you feel a Neo/Agent Smith bond with Cleveland because of the snow-out series?

  • I can respect what you're saying about the Phillies, though obviously it's not the case for me.

    I don't really know why I hate the Indians. I have some ill-will regarding the name and the logo, which I don't enjoy rooting for. I have some ill-will left over from 1995. I have some irritation with the fact that they're the gold standard of statheads for smartly run baseball teams. I have had some annoying encounters with Indians fans, who I tend to find obnoxious. But I kind of hate fans of most teams, for the most part, so...

    I don't have any ill-will about the Choo trade, but I would like to get Asdrubral Cabrera back, I'll tell you what. I was pretty sure that was too much for Perez at the time, and with Lopez's struggles, I feel pretty justified. Anyway, I don't really hate the Indians I guess, but the thought of them winning the whole thing is pretty unpleasant for me.

  • I'll tell you why I hate the indians.

    1997.

    And not just cause they eliminated the Yankees, who were the best team in the league that year, but because in doing so they opened the door for the least likable WS champion of my lifetime.

  • 1) The 2006 Cardinals would like a word with you.

    2) What a tragedy that the Yankees had a Series stolen out from under them. Is there no justice in this world?????

    3) You didn't think you could hate on the 1997 Marlins for buying a World Series without me pointing out the irony, did you? I think you should take a peek at this. Parents who buy World Serieses... have kids who buy World Serieseses.
