MLB Playoffs 2016
« on: October 04, 2016, 03:32:48 PM »
RANDOM POET (Blue Jays) VS AQB (Orioles) in the AL Wildcard showdown!

TONIGHT! TO THE DEATH!

Who will win? Who will salvage their almost-good-enough streaky season and face the Sox in the first round (Toronto, that's who (No, I don't care that you have the best closer in history, shut up.)!)?

Also, will the Cubs have a shot at winning the pennant and ushering in the apocalypse? FIND OUT SOON!

Should we wager?  A lunch at NECSS?

YOU'RE ON! PREPARE TO EAT DIRT!

And prepare also to pay for my non-dirt-related meal.

This thread about my favourite porn channel- Moms Like it Big, makes no sense.
Or perhaps too much sense.

Sorry AQB, but if you're going to go out, getting beat by a walk off homer in extra innings is better than, IMO, a no swing strike.

and boy. if those cubs win ushering in a Trump victory, I just don't know anymore.

I'd like to see Cleveland win it all. after the cubs, they haven't had a WS win in the longest time.

Uggggghhhhh...fuckin' Ubaldo.  FUCKIN' UBALDO.  Yeah, HighPockets, that's the kind of drama you want in the postseason.  It's more enjoyable when you're not on the wrong side of it, though.  GODDAMMIT UBALDO.

Go Indians!  Harness the power of Jobu!

Not playing Britton was the worst and most bizarre decision Showalter ever made. I guess he tought this would go 18 innings. In a game between the 1st and 4th teams for homeruns in the league.

Glad to see the nats make the playoffs and would love to see the take it but don't think they will. To many injuries and have been inconsistent.

Zaros probably won't show up in this thread, but I'll tell you a story. This summer as we were headed out the door to go play some golf, I asked him should I wear my Cubs hat or Red Sox. He offhandedly said, "It doesn't matter they will both end up in the World Series."  I should have learned by now to put some money down after hearing his predictions, He backed the Red Sox in '04 and the White Sox in '05. Then I begged him to follow the Cubs, but he just wouldn't do it. He's stuck with the White Sox ever since.

I gave up on the Cubs after 100 years.

Everyone is following 538 because of the wrong reasons. the Cubs have a 36% chance of winning the world season.
