I pity anyone who thinks the Jays might be dead & buried.

Bob Costas doing baseball is bizarre. Why/how did he get such an assignment? It seems the least glamorous for American audiences & yet there he is.

Costas has been doing baseball on and off for years. In fact, if I remember correctly, he called the '97 World Series with Joe Morgan (I think).

Bob Costas should've retired decades ago. What a huge waste of space that guy is.

This is setting up to be one big ol disappointment of a first round. KC stormed back (they're cool but they were JUST there) Texas is cruising (been there before and will only be a sacrificial lamb to whoever comes out of the NL. Or worse, their boring asses win it all), and the Cardinals are still The Greatest Monsters In History. I actually kinda love it!

Baseball is weird.

Man, deGrom is absolutely incredible. If Harvey is somehow not in their future, they'll still have an ace.

And I feel Syndergaard still has enormous potential, as well. The Mets look scary as far as pitching is concerned for quite a while, with or without Harvey.

Lol not sure I understand the Rangers hate but it's cool. ;) I'll take it.

If it comes to the Series, I'd rather see Cubbies and Rangers because good God I despise the Cardinals.

There's just something empty about the Rangers to me. They've been around a long time and they've done a little stuff and now all of a sudden they get infinity million dollars in TV money from FSN and have a constant pipeline of awesome prospects with ridiculous names (Roughed Odor?). They're kind of the nouveau-riche McMansion trash of baseball.

I guess little obscurities like that could warrant it if those kinds of things bother someone (though they don't really bother me at all in the slightest), but any hate from them simply being a consistent contender in the last five years isn't as warranted if that is the case. I mean, they haven't really won yet. I don't recall anyone hating the Bills or the Jazz in the 90's just for simply "getting there" a lot. It just kinda seems strange to me. If anything, I pity teams like that. Might be my background as a Jazz fan and knowing what that feels like, but that's how I see it.

Well, let's be real, a non-Mark-Cuban-owned Dallas team is going to be inherently terrible, it's just a matter of how you work backward from that conclusion.

I hate the Rangers for blowing 2 separate two out, two strike, two run leads in game 6 of the 2011 world series. How do you even do that?

I think it involves Tony La Russa threatening to hit you with a bat.

With the Jays looking down, may I cheer on the Stros?

Or perhaps... in the NL, the Mets?

This is good for the Cubbies. Wrap this one up, put faith in Arrieta for game 3, and you have 2 tries, one at home, to wrap it up.

So naturally the Cardinals are gonna get the sweep

Reluctantly, I'd think.

Poor Don Mattingly. If the Dodgers get swept Monday night, that is it for him. I think the Dodgers should hire McClendon or even Giants bench coach Ron Wotus.
