Dude, I'm not trying to talk sh*t about the Sox. I think they had a terrific year thus far. Hell, I used to be a Sox fan myself. However, most of the Sox fans make me want the Yankees to beat them even more and more. Not that all fans are this way, but most of the ones I meet and speak to (and much of my family lives in Worcester) whine and moan about their team (and the god forsaken Yankees) until they make the playoffs. Then they think their team is the greatest thing going. That's why I find Simmons' columns such a hoot. This is not fact, just my personal opinion. You want to see the Yankees die - I think it would be neat to see the Yankees beat the Sox again. Hell, it's not like I have the Tigers to root for in the postseason for the next decade, so this is the next best thing...

Either way, it looks to be exciting.

Cubs will win it all. Since I predicted the Giants' loss in the Series last year, you can put this one in the bank.

I see where you're coming from with the Sox fans bitching about the team, but I haven't seen much of that this year, barring the bullpen controversy. I've never taken that view myself. It seems like bad karma to talk shit about your team, like you're just asking to be let down. I always try to find the bright side no matter what, but this year I don't think anybody has much to bitch about. Yes, we lost last night, but that was a goddamn battle (longest game in ALDS history), and I blame our pitching coach for making some bad decisions, not the players.

I would say the K is important from a lot of different stand-points. You can help your team without getting a base-hit sometimes.
