I’m very happy the Rays won.   Well-deserved.  Now if the Braves can pull out Game 7 I can be very happy with the WS matchup.    Though I won’t be offended if the Dodgers go, either.

I'd have preferred the Astros but I'm fine with the Rays.  Sure takes the wind out of the sales of the fans that think you have to spend.

Why did you want the Astros?   Do you genuinely like their team, or is it just your contrarian nature to root for a team to win that was punished for cheating and finished the season with a losing record?

I’ll say this, my happiness for the Rays is just about my liking the way their organization succeeds despite limited financial resources, not an anti-Astros thing.

It would have been a bad look to have a 29-31 team in the WS.  Close call.  I don't care for the Braves but I care for the Dodgers even less.  Go Braves!

I'm that annoyed with the fans that are so deeply wounded about the Astros getting caught cheating.  It's like steroids all over again.  You cheat a little and no one cares, you get good at cheating and everyone loses their minds.

Stealing signs outside of the field of play has been going on forever, we all know this.  I'm sure we all remember the trips to the Skydome?

Right now what is probably a majority of ML pitchers break the rules of the game every appearance.  No one cares.

The Red Sox get caught multiple times and they get a video tech suspended.

I think it's ridiculous, get over it.  Teams cheat.

I figured it was something like this.

I am happy for the Rays as well have always liked them.  I am also not crazy about either NL team but dislike the Dodgers more and the Braves have some former O’s so am rooting for them.

How can you not root for the Rays?

Hoping Atlanta wins for Nick and ODay but the Rays would be good as well.
 

I actually wouldn’t mind seeing LA win since it’s been so long and despite the money they spend, they develop a ton of their talent.  They do it a lot better than the Yankees tried to for all those years.

I don't like their owner and don't think the fanbase deserves a championship.

Actually, if there is a fan base who deserves one, it’s them.

The actual fans who show up and root for them deserve it.   The region as a whole really doesn’t.

I once read an article in regard to Bullets fans ........ fans who root for the team now known as the Wizards, but who were the Baltimore/Capital/Washington Bullets when we started rooting for them.

Anyway, several times in the article when the author was referencing the fan-base, he said, "We loyal Bullets fans ...... all 6 of us."

    • o   3 years before the Jeffrey Meier incident, Ben McDonald on the mound in yet another controversial home run when the Orioles were [playing the Yankees. During the 1993 pennant race, McDonald was going to-to-toe with the Scott Kamieniecki in a 0-0 pitcher's duel in the bottom of the 8th inning. With Don Mattingly at the plate and the bases empty, a 16 year-old Yankee fan from Connecticut named Tim McKenzie stole a home run in the right-field stands from Mark McLemore. Like Jeffrey Maier 3 years later, McKenzie reached over the railing to snatch the ball away from McLemore. In a post-game interview immediately following the game, Mattingly said that the kid "made a great catch" when he was shown a replay of the theft. Also, Mattingly met and shook hands with the McKenzie in the bowels of Yankee Stadium the next day.     http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1916&dat=19930817&id=AQYhAAAAIBAJ&sjid=Z3YFAAAAIBAJ&pg=1607,2158095     In the photo, it states:   A GIFT: - Don Mattingly, left, shakes hands with Tim McKenzie at Yankee Stadium on Monday, prior to autographing the baseball that McKenzie is holding. The 16 year-old Durham, CT resident caught the ball over the railing, but Mattingly was given a home run in the Yankees' 1-0 win over the Orioles.   For his efforts, McDonald was credited with a complete-game loss, ceding that lone run in his 8 innings on the mound that afternoon.   o
    • The Orioles won't lose an affiliate. If Frederick or Delmarva was contracted Aberdeen would just be added. They will still have a Low-A, High-A, AA, and AAA teams. Only the New York Penn League was scheduled to go under which means they will just move one franchise to Aberdeen.
    • Came to post this... I started the video at a specific time. Is this even possible? Trying to think of the Physics of it in my head but I don't know.......  
    • Great post Patrick...   but I like this one better, On Sesame Street...  
    • I’m kind of bummed that Mullins didn’t get a nomination.  Third in the AL in outs above average.
