    Anyone been following/watching the Major League Baseball Playoffs? If so, who are you rooting for?

    I'm hoping the Jays put in a better performance than last year. I wasn't very hopeful prior to the post season, and it's not looking that great right now against Cleveland, but sweeping the Rangers with the best record in the MLB rekindles a bit of hope for me. They've got to get those damn bats working for them though.

    Red Sox really flamed out after a great September. Would have been great to see Ortiz off with one last World Series, but it wasn't in the cards unfortunately. Of the remaining teams I'm rooting for the Jays now. I just enjoy their brand of baseball and they should have done better last year so it would be nice to see them redeem themselves this year.

    I'm pretty sure a Cubs v Indians World Series would be one of the signs of the apocalypse.

    Go Indians!

    Does Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn still play for them?

    Nah honestly, I couldn't give a crap. My beloved Yankees were awful this year. Any season where the Red Sox top our division is depressing. Especially when we don't make the playoffs.

    If I had to choose out of the four that are left I'd probably go for the Cubs. What is it? 108 years since they last won the World Series?

    Yeah, 108 years. They haven't even got to a World Series since 1945. Cleveland haven't won one since 1948 (though the Cavaliers did at least break the city's sports curse earlier this year).

    They've waited this long, they can wait another year. Go Jays!

    I can't watch any of the games because I don't have cable and for some reason the MLB season pass I pay for won't show playoff games (waste of money, though I split it with my dad/brothers). I would not mind seeing the Cubs finally win after all this time and Toronto is a hard team to dislike. Screw Cleveland and the Dodgers though.

    The Blue Jays are the worst team in any sport in recorded history.

    Just look at what they stand for. They should be immediately disbanded for the ridiculousness of their actions.

    The Cubs had the best record in the MLB.

    Del, the WS will be on Fox, not cable. We just have to miss the NLCS. :/

    My bad, yeah. Apparently missed them. Best record in the AL then. You know, the league that matters.

    And I'm enjoying watching the Cleveland racists get stomped right now.

    So Grandal finally woke up for the Dodgers last night. I watched his at-bat this morning and it was pretty impressive. Especially when he was down 0-2 in the count. Getting back to 3-2 and then the pitch he hit out was great one. Must-win game for the Cubs tonight.

    See Jays fans getting excited for an incredible comeback. Sorry Vivi, it's not gonna happen. Indians in 6.

    Only one team in baseball history have come back from 3-0 down in the post season and I still refuse to acknowledge that it really happened...

    You mean racists. It's a common mistake.
