BASEBALL PLAYOFFS!
#1
Boston raped the Angels 9-3 today at Anaheim, Ca., the Twins embarassed the Yankees with a 2-0 shut-out in da Bronx, and the Cardinals beat the Dodgers 8-3. Obviously I want the Sox to win; but besides that, I'd root for the underdog...like the Twins over the Assholes; the Dodgers over the Cardinals...

Share opinions and team rooting here.

Twins because they were up for contraction along with the Expos when it was first proposed by that fucking faggot Selig, so I have a soft spot for them.

Dodgers because of Eric Gagne. But also, Cardinals because of Larry Walker. It's a tough choice.

Angels becaue of Vladimir Guerrero. He's still my favourite player in the MLB, and if anybody deserves a World Series, it's him. Besides, I'm not too worried about the Sox winning anything. If any team knows how to choke under the spotlight, it's them. And the 1997 NL Cy Young winner Pedro Martinez has lost his godamn mind. Even if the Red Sox do make it out of the first round, they'll still lose to his Daddy, the Yankees (assuming they beat the Twins, which I don't want).

Atlanta over Houston. The Braves always beat the Astros, and they have tonnes of October veterans.

Yea; I like the Twins, too. And I feel terrible for the Expos, and poor Youppi!

I don't follow National Teams. Those are just names to me.

Angels becaue of Vladimir Guerrero.

He's a good player; but the Angels have won more than their fair share of World Series in the past 15 years...its time to pass it on.[/b]

You're assigning personificational character flaws to an orgnaization. It's a constantly-evolving baseball club, not a shakespearean tragedy victim...

Even if the Red Sox do make it out of the first round, they'll still lose to his Daddy, the Yankees.

Oh mean; you just said the wrong thing...

I also like the Twins. I am definitely rooting for them against the Yankees... but against anyone other than the Sox (or maybe Mariners) at this stage of the playoffs I'd be rooting for them. :)

Expos... poor guys. It is truly horrible what MLB has done to a once decent baseball city. I hope they get another team someday... with a real ownership group and a decent stadium.

I dislike the stupid Angels. Want them to lose in three. :)

As for the NL... hmm. I think I have to say Braves over Astros (the Braves were once in Boston and Texas is stupid... :))and ... erm, in Dodgers vs Cardinals I don't really care... either one. Cardinals maybe, so we can play them in the World Series and get revenge for 1945. :D

As for Pedro... I really hope he gets better. Losing four straight in September is NOT a good way to end your season and after those comments about the Yankees... we'll see soon.

If I can get over crying about the Cubs' horrible collapse I'll give my predictions.

I know that I horribly under-achieved in the playoffs in the Fantasy League. If only I would have made it out of the first round, which I should have.

If the Sox win tomorrow, we'll have swept the Angels in three games. I'm proud--and even boastful--to say that I'll be inattendance tomorrow at Fenway Park. Ideally, it'd be Sox vs. Yankees next week... and ideally, we'd rape them in dramatic fashion to get back nice at those cocksuckers. Ideally.

Yeah, I won, but I would gladly give up my fantasy baseball title to see the Cubs in the World Series. I'll get over it, though, if the Twins beat the Yankees.

I got gypped out of going to Fenway today, but we won anyway: David Ortiz carried us home. So, I foresee It'll be us & the Yanks next week...

Darunia's AIM Profile adequately reflects his opinions on the ALCS:

How can anyone believe in this "god" character described in the Bible; a god who cares and loves us all equally, and is good, fair, unbiased and kind---a god who never closes a door without opening a window; a god who watches over all of us... is this the same god who time and time again crushes the heart and spirit of all New England in October? Just how much did it take Steinbrenner to bribe god to lull this outcome? Why do the corrupt, money-lusting, decidedly smug and quite immoral New Yorkers always win--? The foregone conclusion, sadly, is that under such circumstances there can be no god. Check and mate.
See ya next April, assholes.

At least you made it to the playoffs. The Cubs' curse generally has them collapsing before they can experience any level of success.

C-3P0 himself. John Olerud is becoming one of my favourite players in baseball. He's so cool and calm. The way he swung the bat and ran the bases after that two run shot vs. the Sox in Game 2 looked the same as if he was sitting through Church. It was awesome. Plus he wears his batting helmet on the field. Man that's funny. That's why I'm cheering for the Yankees, to win the ALCS, at least. I want the Cards to win it all because Larry Walker is probably my most favourite player in baseball, maybe even more so that Vladimir Guerrero.

Well we won one... I know our odds are microscopic but as long as we have any at all I have to hope that we can do it. So, go Pedro tonight... actually not too long from now, given the 5pm start...

12, 14, same thing. It was late at night, and I don't even watch baseball! It's amazing that I watched as much as I did.

Five hours, too... I know it's a worn out saying, but there's no clock in baseball. :)

And a much better ending than the previous three games... now we just have to hope that the game starting now will go as well.

16 hours between games, not much time for the players to recover...

Holy crap, and it was 14 innings this time! I must be a friggin' psychic or something!

Get up. Put on clothes. Put proper books in bag. Go to bathroom. Walk to class. Half an hour is plenty.

Oh, and that was amazing... I watched most of the game, and all of it from the mid 8th on. Great game. 5 hours 45 minuites, 14 innings... wow. So tense! It's incredibly, incredibly nervewracking in extra innings with so much on the line... it's not much fun to watch really but you have to! And then when in the end they WIN... wow. Wow. Incredible... I didn't really think they'd do it, honestly... but now, I think they may have a chance. Oh, the Yankees still have a decided advantage, but it's not impossible...

What about breakfast and showering?

And hey, my mess-up of 14 innings the other day was pretty amazing, huh? I made a mistake, or so it seemed... because I was thinking about the future! *puts hands to temple* OoooOOooWEEEeeooooWeeee!

I gave up trying to get to breakfast at school a few years ago... I was just never making it. Oh well. As for showering, I don't do that in the morning...

And yes, amazing precience there. So can you guess how many innings today's game will be too?

My guess is zero because it'll probably be rained out. :)

It's awful watching these games... so tense, so close... it makes you so nervous... and the Yankees keep getting so close to winning! And then when the Sox won... after each of the last two games after we won there was a crowd of several hundred people (students) outside yelling and stuff. For almost half an hour. :)

These last three games though... not just tense, but fantastic baseball games. Five games in five days in the playoffs. Three games in a row over four hours. Two over five. Tired pitching staffs. Extra inning games back to back. Close plays where the umpires CHANGE THEIR CALLS... for the better (that is, changing them from incorrect calls to clearly correct ones, something so rare in the past in baseball!). Not to mention Red Sox-Yankees... does baseball get any better than this? I doubt it.

Bah, it's always interesting... maybe not THIS interesting, but I always like watching. That is, when the Red Sox are playing; I don't really watch games involving anyone else unless it's the World Series or something. They don't interest me that much.

That could have been horrible for the Sox if it had worked, but fortunately upon review the umpires saw through the cheating and called him on it... hope you're happy, A-Rod. Instead of 2 outs and Jeter on 2nd you had 2 outs and Jeter on first. :)
