Title: World Series...who you got?!?!?

Gordon Vayo.  He currently sits 3rd in chips.  Tough decision since Griffin Benger has 2 prior top 20 finishes in the past 4 years, but he may not have enough chips and time to steal the last all-in.

Even numbered year, Giants win the world series

If I have to cheer for someone other than the Giants I just want to see the Cubs actually win the World Series so they can stop being so miserable

I would love to see the Red Sox win the whole thing.

Cubs fans are insufferable assholes lately on part with the Red Sox before their first win. I wish nothing but bad upon them

We actually agree on something.  Cubs fans are entitled brats, insufferable yuppies who know nothing about sports.

The Cleveland Indians are trying REAL HARD to make me like baseball again (like I did in my youth).

I'm not picking them to win the world series.
I'm not picking them to lose either.

Having their starting rotation minus their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th ordered pitchers would seem to make their chances worse than the Cavaliers being down to Golden State 3 games to 1.

Will Believeland continue???????

A Cleveland team beat the best team in the NBA.  Can another Cleveland team beat the best team in MLB?

If I have a rooting interest, it would be for the Cubs, because Madden and Zobrist seemed like nice guys while they were with the Rays.

No matter who wins, there will be riots in the streets.

I don't know about that. The monster Cavaliers parade was extremely well behaved. The worst behavior was Lebron's swear words during his speech.

November could well become a calamity for Ohioans.

The Fox announcers have been like mutts who have been smacked on the nose with a rolled up newspaper.  They are soooo ready to have an orgasm over the Cubs and the Cleveland pitchers keep frustrating them.  The same was true of the TBS announcers especially during the Boston series, and to a lesser extent during the Toronto series. No means no boys.

One more game to witness another Cleveland miracle!

LET'S GO TRIBE!!!

I hate Joe Buck. He was such a hater every time the Giants playEd a WS game

The ESPN radio guys are in the tank for the Indians.  Very obvious.  Seems the reverse of the TV guys.

Good luck tonight Cubbies!!

I don't care who wins the series but I want it to go to seven games.

Looks like the Cubbies found their bats.

I guess it is down to one game.  I say Visitors should win this one.

Ballsy move by Fox bringing Pete Rose into the broadcast booth.

Lots of decisions will be questioned but Chicago won by playing better fundamental baseball (base running, etc.).

Fox should lose him.  Not only is he a cheater and can't wear a bow tie, he doesn't have a great voice.  Now he was an awesome baseball player and I loved him as a kid.  But he and Alex should not be rewarded anymore in my opinion.

Frank Thomas was great!!
