I've always wanted to see the Mariners and the Braves play one another in the post-season. Looks like this year ain't gonna be it though... the M's hung their bats up for the last time this year on Sunday night. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jpshakehead.gif[/img]
I'm a New Englander and huge Red Sox fan but if they were to play and lose to the Cubs in the World Series, I wouldn't feel too bad. I personally do not want to see Yankees and Braves under any circumstances!
Actually, I am a Cubs fan. Next to the Cubs I like the Red Sox. I lived in New England for a number of years, but grew up a Cubs fan. I still root for the home team though, so I have been known to cheer for the Rockies, except maybe when they play the Cubs. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Nope; the Yankees lead 2 games to 1. Tomorrow's matchup is Wells vs. Burkett.
Oddly enough, I don't want a Sox/Cubs World Series, because then one of them HAS to win, and it removes some of the drama for me. I'd like a Cubs/Yankees series. That way, if the Cubs win, they can certainly say they earned it!
Indeed my boys, the Red Sox did lose today so tomorrow pretty much is a must win game. What a weird game including 72 year old Don Zimmer charging the mound against Pedro Martinez then later, Jeff Nelson and other Yankees attacking a Red Sox groundskeeper in the bullpen because he showed exuberance over an inning ending double play.
It is looking good for the Cubs.
I am still hoping for the Red Sox, but I would still be pleased with a Cubs vs. Yankees World Series... lots of history there... mostly bad for the Cubs, but this could be their year.

One thing you can say for Zim... he still has the fire... lol. By the way, I saw they took Zimmer to the hospital afterwards. I hope he is okay.
Tomorrow could make the picture a lot clearer. In the meantime, I am still hoping, and having fun doing it!
