Who do you like in the post season?
« Topic Start: September 22, 2023, 06:51:40 AM »
Would not be surprised to se them loose to the Brewers in the NLDS.  Dynamic lineup for sure. Can the pitching hold up?
Brewers vs. Mariners in the WS. As Welch would put it, the old Pilots vs the Pilots 2.0.

Ah but that one year in Seattle.

A high spot in Jim Bouton's book: his year in Seattle. That hat, too.

I don't care who wins in the playoffs as long as the Phillies lose.

I just want a WS where I can root for one of the teams.

Phillies, Astros, and Orioles could all be in the WS this year. Sigh...

I dislike the Braves as much as any of those teams, and they're the favorite at this point I imagine.

The AL wild card race is going to be interesting.  Maybe the 3rd slot isn't such a bad thing.

The Braves this year have a "this team is obviously going to win the World Series" vibe in a way I haven't seen since the 2016 Cubs. Though the time before that I saw it was the 2001 Mariners so...

Really rooting against the Braves, Phillies and Orioles. Astros and the Dodgers about a tier below that for me. I would be stoked if any other team managed to win it all but those teams are certainly the favorites this year unfortunately.

Rooting for a Brewers/Twins WS.  Party like it's 1987 (almost the ALCS that year, but the Brewers faded down the stretch).

In reality, it'll probably be some insufferable bullcrap like Orioles/Phillies or Astros/Braves Part 2: Electric Boogaloo.

D-backs could be fun with Carroll and some of their other guys. Probably rooting for the Brewers in the NL. As for the AL, I am going to let the games play out. I often develop a preference once the playoffs start. I kind of like the Rays going in. I'd like to see Paredes get his due.

Are we asking who we want or who we expect?

Who I want is the Phillies, Twins, and Rangers

Who I expect is the Barves or Trash Cans

Mainly Harper. He's a HoF player and I want him to go into the hall with at least one championship

Wheeler and Nola are workhorses who pitch very well. Nola has slipped a bit this year but still went an average of six innings a start. Wheeler has been one of the best free agent pitcher signings in recent years. Started slow this year but should still finish top 5 in Cy Young voting. I like pitchers like that.

I don't want the Phillies mainly because their fans are so obnoxious. I can give many examples of when they are just a POS. They don't deserve a championship.

One of their fans didn’t spit on the nun.
