    This series has been completely unreal. Two wild cards just going at it. Super stoked for game 7 tomorrow night.

    I'm so humbled and proud. Really was an emotional roller coaster. I was REALLY into it this year, lots of highs, lots of times where I thought "well, they did great but it's over" and they shocked me again.

    Drinks are on me guys......

    I hate Giants with a burning passion that resides in the depths of my soul. Least impressive "dynasty" in the history of sports.

    Aside from their last 3 titles, the last time before that they won a WS was 1954. :fawk:

    I have to say, after a lifetime of them not being "good enough" it's nice to be on the other side of that fence! :D

    I know what you mean though, patriots, dallass, fakers, heat, it's like OMG NOT AGAIN but then there are surprises.

    Spurs with the upset, Giants with the upset, What's next......

    I was happy for Boston when they won that first title after their drought, but tired of them quickly after.

    I was happy for SF when they won their first title after their drought, but again, I've grown tired of them.

    It's cool to see the underdogs and/or long-time losers get their moment in the sun, but it's hard to keep liking them when they keep winning and are obviously not the same bunch of rag-tag loveable losers they had been for decades.

    If I sound bitter, it's because I'm a fucking Cubs fan. Oh, before the THREE TITLES IN FIVE YEARS, SF hadn't won since '54?

    Boo.

    Hoo.

    Hoo.

    Golly, that must be awful. Allow me to shed a tear.

    C'mon, Joe Madden, turn shit around...

    I believe that just like the Red Sox and the Giants were due, the Cubs need to win a WS. It's just time.

    Im still amazed that the A's were on pace to being one of the best teams ever of all time until around the all star break. The numbers they put up as a whole in that first half of the season was just jaw dropping

    They traded that one dude (not even going to try and spell it) and it all went in the other direction.

    Not really a Giants fan, but I was still a little disappointed to see Panda leave, for some reason. The Red Sox seem to really be going all in, between signing him and Hanley Ramirez, and chasing Cole Hamels and Jon Lester. I wonder if they really go through with sticking Ramirez in left field, or if it's just a bluff to give them more leverage in the event of trading Bogaerts. It would be a little weird to see Ramirez in left, but it would probably be less stressful on his (sort of injury-prone) body. Plus, Bogaerts is still only 22 and a former #2 prospect, so it would be a bit premature to give up on him now, even with his lackluster first full season.

    I has a little sad about it, but life goes on. But if the Sox beat the yankees with him, it'll be worth it :lol:
