    I don't know who I'm rooting for.

    I think I'd be mad about the Mets not cause they beat us, necessarily, but it'd break my head to know they really got lucky at the trade deadline and it worked out perfect for them, even with their owners being cheap. It's unfair.

    I think as for a baseball analysis standpoint, I want the Blue Jays to win. I want a team who goes all in to win it all. The Cubs and Royals are set up nice also as far as their teams having a nice game plan for years in how to create their team. Just feel as if it would be fun for a team to be rewarded for having the balls to go all in

    I'm glad Toronto beat the Rangers now. Wanted Texas to win because I thought we'd have no chance at all vs Toronto in a potential WS matchup, but now I hope the Blue Jays beat the hell out of everyone

    I wouldn't really mind any of the remaining teams winning.

    I don't want the Mets to win because they beat is. Eff them, Darling, and the players.

    I don't want the Cubs to win because then I will be the new person in my group of friends with the longest WS drought. For pathetic franchises like we have been for 27 years, we need the Cubs to make us look better.

    I hate the Blue Jays.

    Seager struggled but he belonged in there.

    Joc and Grandal are auto outs. For months.

    only because the alternatives weren't that favorable
    but 3-for-16 with 8 K's and 0 rbi?
    shit, rollins could have done that...

    Wouldn't a 'real' manager or hitting coach advise them repeatedly prior to the games to protect the strike zone at all costs? Anything a ball in or a ball out is fair game in the playoffs.

    Someone should have spoken to Cory about this and clearly they didn't. He should know better than to watch a 3rd strike only 1 ball wide. He'd already been granted one free base who the heck does he think he is? Of course Blue rang up his uppity rookie ass.

    Corey was a 2 month major leaguer!! We're acting like this is a grizzled vet, he was overmatched yes but I'd rather him get this experience then watch him on the bench or not here at all. The Mets got more clutch hits than us and they had the distinct advantage in pithing depth. ANOTHER frustrating end I get it but they win together and lose together. On a side note, it was fun rooting for you Dre!! DBB well I think you know you're not wanted.

    I didn't think we had enough pitching to win the series so I was glad he was there irregardless if he was ready. This experience will be invaluable to his development.

    which experience?...
    the experience of failing to take advantage of a struggling starter?
    the experience of getting blown out in the LDS?
    the experience of playing for an inept manager?
    or perhaps the experience of going 3-16 with 8K's?
    invaluable indeed

    You serious? I didn't come up with the experience thing by myself. Experiencing the play off pressure even if you fail IS invaluable. You've never heard of experts saying these things. The term "learning how to win" is rampant throughout sports. Agree to disagree.
