Red Sox beating the Yankees 4-0 after 2 innings!!!

World Series, here we come!  ;)


Yes...that's right!!!  I called it on the first day!!



Even a blind squirrel dude! ;)  I was hoping for a Sox-Dodgers series, but this will do.  Go Cards!

Awesome!!  My father's Red Sox! (he was 17 at the time).  Unfortunately he passed away before seeing them win in 2004. 

I do not expect a repeat of the '46 series!  GO SOX!!

SOX were the better team but I'd like to have seen Miggy at 100% and Prince hitting the ball.... at all. Dude was ridiculously bad. Totally threw away 2 gems by Sherzer and Verlander.

That was a rough watch last night.

One thing is for sure: there is no way but up for the Cardinals after that performance.

Whenever the Red Sox are out of the playoffs, I always root for the Cubs...we know a little about curses in New England and can feel your pain.  Maa-maa.

I've lived in LA now for 17+ years and of course I have friends who are big Dodgers fans. Over the years they've tried to convert me. I stalwartly refuse. Then they tried the tactic of "well, ok, but the Dodgers can be your NL team. C'mon you live here". I had to explain that no.. my NL team was the Cubs for precisely that same reason - I've lived that pain.

Be that as it may, Wrigley Field is one of the coolest places on Earth!  Watching baseball there is experiencing what the game is all about.

I'm a Cardinals fan and I wholeheartedly agree with this.

Just don't travel a bit south to Addison St. if you're not into those kind of things. I did that once, safest part of the whole city!  ;D

Totally ! Great atmosphere. Unfortunately it's also given me a lifetime of frustration as a Cubs fan. "Just wait 'til next year" - Cub fan eternal motto.  :D

Yesterday, NPR was talking about the game and how there were so many textbook situations that had the Cardinals stumped. Their quote - "The Cardinals thwarted more textbooks then Tennessee during the Scopes Trial."

eamus catuli! Yeah, I am a lifelong cubs fan. When I used to work outside, and had to drive around all day, nothing beat listening to Pat Hughes and Santo.This conversation has got me singing "Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request"

Told his friends "You know the law of averages says:
Anything will happen that can"
That's what it says
"But the last time the Cubs won a National League pennant
Was the year we dropped the bomb on Japan"
The Cubs made me a criminal
Sent me down a wayward path
They stole my youth from me
(that's the truth)
I'd forsake my teachers
To go sit in the bleachers
In flagrant truancy
So it goes.
