I think Chief should start the thread for World Series, Game 1. I almost think he should start it now.

If no one objects, I would like to claim Game 2.

It's one thing to want the gdt up early to promote discussion but a week early, lol

I was joking based on the fact that we waited so long for NLCS games. Also, do we really have a precedent for a World Series thread? I would argue no... :hysterical:

If you'd have told me 10 years ago that none of our first NLCS threads would even break into the top 10 I'd have laughed in your face.  People just don't post like they used to :old:

</table>

off the top of my head, since no years are shown, I'll say the first two are the 2014 NLDS, the third is Riggleman's firing / resignation, 4th is Cubs 2017 NLDS, 5th 2012 St L NLDS game 4 or 5, 6th Harper's debut, 7th is tough but maybe Harper's home debut?, 8th is 2012 NLDS Game 1, 9th is 2014 NLDS  Game 1, and 10th is a 2016 NLDS thread.

The decline is affected by sportsfan882 no longer posting on WNFF since Aug 2018 (although he lurks in GDTs), plus other Top 10 posters who stopped posting. In 2019, spidernat was sick and then attended playoff games, not posting until before/after.

I'm now #5 in Top Topic Starters. I wasn't even on the list at the start of the season. I should be #3 soon, because of the YNOT and other threads.

Those figures are somewhat skewed due to sub-forums that do not track post count, right?

It may still count for that, I'd have to test (not that it matters all that much)

I think nats2playoffs has to get honor of starting World Series Game #1. Chief gets Game #3. Or vice versa.

I’m a relative newbie, so I’m more than happy to step aside for others.

You're a Patrick Corbin. You're new, but you carry more than your share of the water.

n2p will not accept game 1 because he did game 4 of the NLCS and he is superstitious about doing back to back gdt's. Maybe we can get 2K6nats to do one. :lmao:

I say Chief Game #1 and n2p Game #3.

I think varoadking, as much as it makes me sick to post, deserve consideration for organizing meet & greets, which I promise to make next season.

Who started the most Ross and Hellickson starts? That poor shmuck should get a bone thrown their way.

Glad to see superstitions are surfacing, for what would baseball be without them ?

Why not have to save gameday starts that match the starting pitchers in the NLCS ?  Sort of like having the preferred starting catcher

No cherry picking pitchers. That is the coward's way.

it's time to start the GDT for game 1.  Any takers?  I'm happy to do it if nobody else claims it by say, 10 PM eastern?
