The Catch All Wild Card Thread!
« Topic Start: October 04, 2016, 12:07:58 PM »
As a child of the Expos I am usually not down with the Jays. Expos fans feel the same way about the Jays that Nationals fans feel about the Orioles.

However, bird vs. bird? Let's go Blue Jays!

How do we feel about the N.L. matchup? I like the Mets because they are so darned plucky. The Giants already got theirs, and I'd rather someone pour water all over the even year magic.

I don't care in the AL. Give me good theater, that's all I ask.

I want the Giants to win tonight, though. Mostly because I have tickets to both games in San Francisco and if they play the Cubs, I think I can make a tidy profit on those.

Theatre is important. I still think about A's vs. Royals, 2014.

Exactly.  Though everyone became a Jays fan in the '92 and '93 WS.

I rooted for the Jays vs. Braves but the other year I rooted for the Phillies.

I'm all-in for the Jays & Gigantors this year.  Aside of course from the exceedingly unlikely event that we actually play either of them.

If we do it means someone else took care of the Cubs or Red Sox. That's a good thing.

It's Canada against the city of Baltimore. What could go wrong?

That would be a good start.  They do have an almost unique pedigree in the lopsided loss department.

Sendley definitely would've made that call. Late jump from 2B. Good idea to stay.
