    on the Rays' Bandwagon.




    I am soooo glad this is on TBS. That means we get Ernie Johnson Magic. It's not exactly inside the NBAm but EJ is the heart and soul behind that show.

    EJ = Emmy Award Winner.

    Los Angeles de Los Angeles de Anaheim vs. Los Doyers. :p
    o
    Cachorros de Chicago vs. Los Medias Blancas de Chicago. :p

    If the final series of the Baseball Championship are in the same city, do they really have to wait ONE DAY between games? :D

    Also, I'd like to see FAN RIOTs in Los Angeles or snowball fights between south-siders and northsiders in Chicago.

    I hope the Cubs win so we don't have to hear about the damn curses anymore. I mean sure, we would have to endure several months of ESPN and HBO specials on the curses and the end of them, just like with the Red Sox, but then they would finally stop talking about them (curses), just like the Red Sox.

    What I would LIKE to see happen:

    AL

    Red Sox beat Angels (Angels were my preseason pick to win it all)
    White Sox beat Rays

    Red Sox beat White Sox

    NL

    Dodgers beat Cubs (I dont care how long theyve suffered, I dont like 'em)
    Brewers beat Phils (Even though I picked the Phils in preseason to make the World Series)

    Brewers beat Dodgers

    World Series

    Red Sox beat Brewers
    ______________________________________________________

    What I think WILL happen

    AL

    Angels beat Red Sox
    Rays beat White Sox

    Angels beat Rays

    NL

    Cubs beat Dodgers
    Phils beat Brewers

    Phils beat Cubs

    World Series

    Angels beat Phils (This was my pick in the preseason, so I am going to stick with it)

    Going for the Red Sox, like always. But the fact that there are no New York teams in the Playoffs is already a win for me this season.

    Go Red Sox Nation!

    First round

    Brewers @ Phillies --- Brewers win
    Dodgers @ Cubs --- Cubs win

    Red Sox @ Angels --- Red Sox win
    White Sox @ Rays --- Rays win

    Semis

    Brewers @ Cubs --- Cubs win
    Red Sox @ Rays --- Rays win

    World Series

    Rays @ Cubs --- Cubs win

    I'll be rooting for the Rays all the way, but I say they make it to the World Series, but then get star struck just like the Rockies last year. Cubs will win it all and Wrigley Field will go wild!

    I am rooting for the Cubs because I firmly believe that once all these damn curses are over, the baseball gods will FINALLY get to the Astros' curse!!

    It it kind of odd that we keep hearing about two Chicago teams in the playoffs, but not two LA teams. Guess people still think theyre the Anaheim Angels.

    For one, I reallllly hope the Brewers get swept in the first round, simply because of their affiliation with Bud Selig. That, and I think Prince Fielder is a prick. Second, I really hope the Dodgers make it to the World Series just so Torre can give Steinbrenner the finger after that utter disrespect they showed him at the closing ceremony of Yankee Stadium. Third, I really hope the Rays win the whole damn thing because I'm tired of the Red Sox, I hate the Cubs for the same reason I hate the Red Sox, and no other team really sparks my interest like the Rays.
