I grew up there. Frank Howard. Ted Williams.

If I need to I'll root for the Cubs over L.A. or AZ, not sure about CO.

The Cubs Achilles heel could be their bullpen. Did not want to see the Gnats get their offense going.
Good win though.
Still ten to go.

I will root for the Gnats or Cubs over all the other teams in it.

You okay? No heart attack in the 6th, 7th or 8th? I don't know about that Gnats 3rd out at 1st in the 8th, oh well. Happy for you, you're more passionate about it than I am.

Will have to be better than vs. the Gnats. Go Cubs all the way! 2nd choice - Yankees.

That was exhausting for a divisional round......my bullpen fears were realized. Maddon is searching for arms he trusts (again).
A dropped third strike and catchers interference back to back?!! Never seen that. No one left to start game 1 in L.A.
I need a drink.

Three down, eight to go. Hope I survive.

Go miracle comeback! At least not a sweep culmination in Chicago.

Or, more likely, go Yankees.

Will Yanks - Dodgers leave cons with no one to root for?

Was it less heartbreaking than a close game would have been? I pretty much counted it as over in the 3rd, just surfed back every now and then to see if there had been a miracle.

Oh yeah - Yanks and Dodgers would be fun.
The first World Series I remember being specifically interested in was the one when Don Larsen threw the perfect game. Of course, the Dodgers were de bums from Brooklyn then, but still...

Hasn't happened since the 1981 World Series, the L.A. Dodgers defeated the Yankees, 4–2. The Yankees lead the World Series contests, 8-3.
