    I hate the Braves. But there are some players I don't mind getting a ring.

    • There is not a single team left worth cheering for, but this post-season has been tremendous regardless.

        I am a super-huge proponent of just going to the electronic strike calling. Bryant Gumbel's show on HBO did a bit on it a few years ago, and it works marvelous. It doesn't slow the game down, it actually speeds it up because there is no complaining about the calls, or stepping out of the batters box to show your displeasure to the ump.

        There will be plenty of other opportunities for home plate umps to still blow calls, like on missed check swings, so guys like Diaz will still be able to screw up games.

          I'm OK with rooting for LA. I'd be OK rooting for Boston if when they are on a road we tow the entire city out to sea on a garbage scow and sink it.

                  The Dodgers have one of the highest payrolls and just won the WS last year. Houston cheats. Boston also has a high payroll and has won a few WS recently. Fuck Atlanta and the chop, plus the announcers kissed their *** all 7 games of the 1991 WS.

                          Yeah, after a 60 game regular season. Big asterisk in my book.

                                You going to Red Hot Hockey? Would love to meet up.

                                OK, so my fear of Atlanta beating LA and giving the Red Sox home field advantage with the possibility of me having the slightest chance of the having tickets to a potential World Series Game 7 series clinching game and not being able to go due to work has now dissipated given the collapse Tuesday, last night's awful loss and Atlanta now being one win away from the World Series. Just what I wanted for my birthday - a loss to close out the ALCS. Oh well.
