Default World Series who ya got?

I have to go with Tito over Theo the Rat. I believe there are 8 people in the World Series that played for or were management for the Red Sox.

Go Cubs! My grandfather was a life-long, die-hard Cubs fan. He passed 22 years ago but it would still be nice to see the Cubbies get one for him.

Default Re: World Series who ya got?

I'm rooting for the Indians. I have nothing against the cubs, but the curse of the billy goat is baseball lore. It's endured for 100+ years and I'd like to see it last a 100 more.
I'm saying this as a MLB fan not a Yankee fan, but when the Red Sox won the series, it was a bad day for baseball. The game lost something.
I'm sure Sox fans will disagree, but after winning 3 world series since 04, they're just like all the other fans. There's nothing special about being a Sox fan anymore.
The breaking of the curse will only be a footnote in the history of the game, but the curses themselves are what take on a life of their own, and live on through the generations of fans.
Think about this, right now in Boston there are teenagers who have no idea what it's like to suffer as a Sox fan. That's crazy to me.

That's a fantastic perspective. All my relatives are from Western, MA and I spent every summer up there in the early to mid 70's and suffered with them. Until I discovered who Brooks Robinson was. Growing up outside of DC, and having lost the Senators, made becoming an Orioles fan easy - and gave me twice the enmity for the Yankees!

What you say makes a lot of sense for tradition, rivalry, folklore, statistics, drama, etc etc, but --- nothing ever stays the same. Go Cubs.

Start a new curse/tradition - Big Papi's jersey really is buried somewhere under the new Yankee stadium - I'm sure of it!!!!! Those same same teenagers in Boston you speak of don't even knew who the "Bambino" was - much less he had the power to curse a whole city. For real fans, like yourself, there will always be reverence and knowledge of the game that will preserve what it means for this country.

As a Red Sox fan since I was 10 years old, let me say this: I'm fine with that.

My favorite Red Sox fan sayings from yesteryear "You're ruinin' mah summah" and "The Red Sawx killed my grandfatha now they are coming for me!"

My mom didn't get to see them win it but I did and a lot of other long suffering fans, that being said I still want the Indians to win it all, not a fan of Theo after the contracts he handed out and then blew town leaving the mess for someone else.

Fair enough. I was just offering my position and the reasoning behind it.

As for the curse of the Big Papi jersey, that talisman has already been found and removed from the new stadium. Couple that with the fact that the Yankees have already won a championship in the new building. I'm not saying the Yankees can't have a curse, but it's going to have to be different than the curse of the Big Papi Jersey.

Dom I completely agree with this. Would turn the Cubs into just another team.

Let's start a new curse.

Cleveland can have the Curse of the Schwarber.

The Cubs had to win the way they did last night to gain confidence to go against Kluber tonight. If the Cubs squeaked by last night with a 1 run win in a low scoring game that would not have been enough momentum going into game 7. It appears the Cubs bats are back. I say Cubs win game seven ---- 6 to 3.
