Yeah they've both got good reputations here as guys who give a lot back to the DR. I've been reading up on what life is like for prospects from the DR latsly and it makes me root for those guys so much harder. It's not just about playing a game to them, it's about lifting their families or entire communities out of poverty.

And there have been stories over the last week about how crime rates in Puerto Rico were down as their team went on this run, so that was cool. Either way, it seems this tournament was a big success around the world. With that and the World Series last year, baseball finally seems to be on the rise again, and I'm all for that.

Pretty much how Reds fans feel every single season... We all know the inevitable always happens.

Only if Bronson Arroyo is your Game 1 starter.

So yeah, weren't the Cleveland Indians the favorite to win the World Series?

Yes. I believe in Houston this year. That lineup is nuts, their top two starters can match up with anyone, and they're playing for a city that needs good news bad.
If the Cubs lose tonight, all four of the teams I was rooting for in the Division Series will be eliminated.

I was rooting for the Indians, but I'm going to have to pull for Houston now.

Yeah, Houston is probably my top team now, even though I don't care about baseball.

1. Houston
2. Cubs
3. Yankees or Dodgers

I'm a certified New York and California hater for the most part. :noble:

If the Yankees win I'm going to have bury my head in sand for ~6 months. I can stomach a Dodgers win only because of Rich Hill. I'll always root for the Cubs as my #2 team, but Houston has the most going for them this year. They've got a pair borderline Hall of Fame veterans with a combined 0 World Series titles between them (Beltran and Verlander), so it would be cool to see them win it. Plus Jose Altuve is the most exciting player in baseball. And then there's the city of Houston itself right now. Go Astros.

As a fan of the Montreal Canadiens, I root against the Yankees so they don't extend their lead in total championships over my Habs any further.

Roy Halladay died today. He will always be one of my favorite opponents in any sport and I'm stunned by this news. I'll never forget when he finally got a chance to pitch in the playoffs and proceeded to throw a no-hitter in his first game like it was nothing. RIP to an absolute legend of the sport.
