    Maybe a corny reason to root for a team but am pulling for the Houston Astros's after the devastation there from hurricane Harry. Being a Red Sox I don't mind getting knocked out by them.

    this is the end
    They could not pull it off last night, but it was an amazing run. Fans gave the team an extended standing ovation after the game. One national sportswriter wrote he had never seen anything like that after a regular season loss. Neither had I. It will take a lot to beat the Tribe. Dominant starting pitching; amazing bullpen; power and clutch hitting throughout the lineup; well above-average defense; strong bench; great manager and fantastic team chemistry. Maybe we should declare them the champs now? :)

Although i do consider the Jays ending the longest playoff drought in professional sports worthy news. Gr8fulTed...sure hope we see a series between our teams. It'll be epic.

Whether you're a Blue Jays fan, a Dodgers fan or a Royals fan, we will have a great playoff season. KC will host the winner of the Astros-Yanks, while Toronto hosts Texas. In the National league, the Cardinals will host the winner of the Cubs-Pirates game and LA hosts da Mets. Did I get it right Poncho Bill? Marye may be cheering for the Dodgers. Gypsy Cowgirl is lamenting the Giants fadeaway.

Down 6-2 entering the 8th, they storm back with 7 runs! Wow, I bet the Astrosstaff had the locker room stocked w champagne! Even the Texas governor messaged congratulations to the team on Twitter. Game 5 tomorrow in KC. How about those Blue Jays! I'm puzzled as to why David Price came in to relieve with the score 7-1? Strange managing. In Chicago, the Cubs topped the redbirds and in New York, those amazing Mets put 13 on the board to beat the Dodgers. Enjoying the ride through these playoffs!

After Monday's blowout, the Dodgers beat the Mets thrillingly tonight (3-1). Now the Mets need to face Greinke in Los Angeles. Ouch. The Dodgers could even use Utley again, lol.

...particularly the 7th inning. More on that later. Im still hoping for that Royals/Jays series GT. I couldn't care less about home advantage. it will be very entertaining baseball. Royals are down 2-0 right now tho. Oh wait...2-1 now. It ain't over till it's over! As if the governor did that!. Very, VERY happy to see the Cubbies advance too.

This playoff run has been full of up's and downs and still going with tonight's game in L A gives me something to look forward to all day. Along with Thursday night Football should be fun filled evening. I enjoy games like these when I do not have a favorite team in the fight. Makes for great entertainment. Good diner good sports and family is what I call a GREAT night. Pulling for Mets tonight here and the Cub's to win it all this year. I think they have made all the rite moves hiring Joe Madden as manager and Theo in the front office.

I got married on Oct. 7, 1984. Married and broken-hearted all on the same day! Mets or Dodgers? Hmmm... Madden is the right guy for the right time. That ridiculous roster of beefcake are all head-over-heels in love with him. I'm not sure his style would wear well with a veteran crew, but this is just fun, fun, fun. Back to the future in a Delorean, indeed!

Married in 84 as was I...... Mets or Dodgers....vs. Cubs, in the grand scheme of things will it put bread on the table, or bolster retirement? After watching my beloved Bills lose 1990-1993 Super Bowls consecutively, I say give me live music or give me death.....never been disappointed in a live show.... Professional sports have become the WWE..... Entertainment.....for money's sake.... I can't take pride in a 20 something who makes millions play for my/your team until somebody pays him more, and the almighty dollar is his allegiance..... Let's go Mets.....but I still miss Jerry......

There is an awesome story about Daniel Murphy in todays New York Dailey News. Going to try and copy to here.http://nydn.us/1M9pOOS Being from Cape Cod Mass and a Red Sox Fan who has always rooted for New England teams I am rooting fro the Met's in the series not just for Murphy but for the fact that the city has been more or less a Yankee town. Would like it be a 7 game series though. With no team in the fight I love the game 7 pressure for both teams. Also I think it is always fitting to have last series go 7 in every sport.

Born in '64, Mets were my first baseball memory as a 5 year old winning WS in 69. Been on the bus ever since, and with a house full of Yankee fans to boot! I wen to Game 3 of the 73 WS against the A's (a loss) but a great Dad & me moment for sure...86 was a whole 'nother story... It wasn't just Daryl & Doc in those days :-) Went to as many games as I could including the classic Game 4 NLCS vs Houston when Doc Gooden faced Nolan Ryan! Both piched 9... Daryll made it a 1-1 tie by hitting a line drive 10 foot high rope off Nolan in the 8th and then Gary (Kid)Carter won it with a base hit off Charlie Kerfeld in the bottom 12... that was just a set up for the insane Game 6 and then the greatest WS EVER when the Mets beat the Red Sox! I just love the story about Roger Clemens coming out of game 6 with the lead and going into shave only to come out and be on the losing end! Karma I tell ya! So he had to join the Ankees to get his ring... sellout! Oh well, I love Baseball, and the Grateful dead... I could talk BOTH for ever! Peace... Go Mets!!

That REALLY fkn blows!! Good on the Royals though. With all the comparisons to the 85 ALCS and my gut feeling, I thought it was destiny for the Birds. In shock... My wife will be happy it's over They only left 12 base runners...brutal. I love baseball.

Sorry Ponch...i was pullin for the Jays ... had 1&3rd in 9th with no outs...then 2&3rd with one out...gut wrenching at that point....But hey, they did have a heck of a season...they held off the yanks and have plenty to look forward to next year! George Brett wont be so happy next weekend when he starts having flash backs of good ol NY from 85.... only this time in Queens!

I hope it goes 7 cause love the stress of each and every bat in do or die games. Even though all at bats from this point on are do or die. Funny little thought is how every game in a baseball year matters like in all sports but when I think about 162 game season I can't help but think how many times we hear or read or even say it ourselves heck we will get them tomorrow can't win them all. Well they all matter. Unlike the ending of my VERY FAVORITE Song " I guess it doesn't matter anyway " cause it sure does matter. Good luck to all the fans of both teams as a guy without a team in the fight am rooting for good baseball.

Surprising comeback stunner, the 7th time they've scored 2 or more runs to win a game, was fun to watch and certainly stressful to experience. I'll cherish the look on the Mets fans as their potential win slipped away, as the Fox announcers continued to rave on about the Mets! If I hear another narrative on Matt Harvey or Yoenis Cespedes, I'll throw up!! No more Joe Buck, please! Toronto or Houston would've handled the Mets: they were certainly overmatched. How did they ever beat the other national league teams?! Royals rule!!

Cherish the crestfallen look on their faces? Isn't that just a bit mean? I will agree Joe Buck is something of a knob. I tend to turn the sound down when he's calling the game. But, I would have to disagree the Mets were overmatched. A different spin on the ball, a better throw here or flash of leather there and they'd still be playing tomorrow.P.S. To reiterate, I'm not a fan of either team per se - I'm a Brewers fan.

The Royals didn't get much respect on Fox, except from Raul Ibanez and Frank Thomas. They were fortunate to win, capitalizing on NY errors. Let's appreciate their win while we can, until free agency disrupts the rosters. Why did Pete Rose vanish from the studio crew?

As a Brewer's fan, I wouldn't mind seeing Matt Harvey in a Brewer's uniform. Especially after losing Gallardo to Texas this year. He was always fun to watch pitch. Harvey's due for at least a contract restructuring. I was surprised to see that he earns 5 or 6 percent of Bartolo Colon's salary! Still talking big bucks; imagine making $600K and feeling 'shortchanged'. Humph, what times we live in...

He was getting 10,000 for doing pre game but had already had a contract to do a card show in Philly I think they said. His contract expired on the 1st so he went with 25 grand for the card show. This is from a story in the Dailey news NY.

So Billionaire corporation Rogers wont pony up the measly thirty million or so to keep David Price. The Blue Jays are missing ONE thing and thats a bloody Ace in the rotation. Altho I am NOT surprised it still sucks. I cant believe they let him go only to lose him to the fkn Red Sox. THAT is a kick in the nuts.

You may deduce from my avatar that I'm a Browns' fan...to be sure, a sad lot in life. Can you believe the creativity they display in total ineptitude? Blown first and second round draft picks, year after year. Overpaying free agents who rarely perform. And they always find ways to lose. But Monday was especially painful. If only my empty football cup could be full again. P.S. My fantasy football team name is the Grateful Dawgs.

In the Browns defense, there was a missed penalty on the play... I have to admit though, I was shaking my head in disbelief at that 'kick-six'. I only watched only the final 4 minutes of the game, but they were pretty entertaining. I am speaking as neither a Browns nor a Ravens fanatic. Cheesehead, here. Nice interception by Tramon, hey?

agree there was the missed penalty...plus a missed call on a clip on the kicker as he chased will hill...but the Browns put themselves in the position to depend on refs to save them. I'm loyal to them and feel more stupid every year for being so.
