    Who will you root for in the Play-offs?

    Our beloved NYY are out...so, as attention turns to other teams, who will you root for?

    National League
    - Looks like the Mets will win.
    - Cards or Padres. Game 4 with Carp on the hill would seem to favor the Cards

    AL
    - Tigers..since they did beat NYY and handily
    - A's...Beane and the moneyball machine roll on.

    I think most can figure whom I will be wathcing for and pulling for.

    I enjoy watching baseball and will root for Oakland. If the Cards showed up in 2004, I'd root for them (I'd also root for the Dodgers, but it looks like they're done).

    I cant believe this...

    Baseball is still a beautiful game, regardless if the Yanks are there. Sure, we all wanted to see them win, but alas, it wasnt meant to be.

    Doesnt mean I wont continue watching baseball.

    Exactly. Same teams for me, as well.

    Hey we're baseball fans here (the Jets? they still play football???)

    Gotta go with the Tigers - good team, they're not the Mets and they're not from California!

    No one. I'm done with baseball until April 2007 now that my beloved Yankees are out.

    I don't really enjoy watching non-yankee games, or games in any sport where I'm not rooting for one team

    Muahaha...I can now root for my favorite moneyball team: The A'S! Go A'S!

    Re: Who will you root for in the Play-offs?

    I actually want to Mets to win...but other than the game playing now. I doubt I will watch anymore baseball games the calendar year.

    Go Cornhuskers.
    Go Cashman is the offseason.

    Here's a tip of the hat and a fond goodbye to:
    Sheffield
    Mussina
    Arod
    Farnsworth
    Wright
    RJ

    Let's load up on draft picks and young prospects. We'd still be good enough to get to the playoffs and still play better then this laughable collection of old, aging allstars.

    Re: Who will you root for in the Play-offs?

    I'm pulling for the A's. Since, "The Monkey" is of not winning a PS series is off their backs, I say with the A's deep pitching staff and solid defense will carry them over the Tigers.
    It's not the 27 World Championships that drive the New York Yankees. It's the 28th.
    Every year is The Year. Go Yankees.

    Re: Who will you root for in the Play-offs?

    I want all teams to play horribly. If someone has to win, let that one team manage to have a sloppy and ungratifying World Series win, and then later have it come out that all teams except the Yankees were cheating their butts off

    That would satisfy me greatly.

    Watching baseball, maybe.

    But actually rooting for another team that is not the Yankees.... Nah...... Celebrating another team's victories when the Yanks are at home? I can't. I just can't.

    Re: Who will you root for in the Play-offs?

    I'm shocked that so many people here wont watch now that their team is out of it.

    I dunno...I'm a baseball fan...I love watching. I will still watch now the Yanks are out of it...and will continue to watch when (and if) my beloved Birds on the Bat are out

    I'd be nice to see Billy Beane finally give his critics the finger. It'd also rule to see The Big Hurt give Chicago the finger.

    Re: Who will you root for in the Play-offs?

    I'm with that Fat Bastard Lasorda - "Stop Whining. To the TV!"

    I'll be rooting hard against the A's. Their fans are punks (lived in the Bay Area for 13 years and was an A's season ticket holder - so I could go to the Yankee games)

    Doesn't matter who wins in the NL, but I hate the Dodgers the most (1981) so I'll be rooting against them.

    Tigers are going all the way this year, and that's fine by me. I hate losing to the team that gets beat in the next round. Rogers and Bonderman did something special the last couple of days. If it were any other team but the Yanks they'd receive praise around these parts. We sucked, we lost, may the best team win - the Tigers.

    Re: Who will you root for in the Play-offs?

    I'm sorry, but I have no problem pulling for Los Mets this year. I don't think they have the pitching to stop either the A's or the Tigers (who have outstanding pitching).

    But darnit - they're a fun, loose team with a nice blend of young and old. And it doesn't hurt that my man Willie Randolph is at the helm.

    I hope they at least get to the WS, if not win it.
