    Now that the two Wild Card games are underway, who is everyone supporting this fall?

    I'm a Pirates fan, and while the Buccos were never really in it this year, I did hold out some hope until the end of September. I'm rooting for the Indians now.

    Thoughts from the Wild Card games...
    --Familia choked in the playoffs for a second straight year. I do wonder how much longer the Mets will stick with him in that role.
    --Bumgarner dominated again in a WC game. He shut out my Buccos two years ago.
    --The winning battery from the AL Wild Card game was the same battery from the 2013 NL Wild Card game...Liriano and Martin.
    --Does anyone else think they should make this a best of three?

    Indians :) #RollTribe
    I've kind of grown up as a Tigers fan, but my paternal grandfather was an Indians fan, and since he passed away this May, I've decided to root for Cleveland for him.

    The thought of a clean sweep of the Red Sox is making me pretty happy right now.

    Too bad the Orioles had to lose; they're my favorite AL team. Now I guess I'm rooting for the Dodgers.

    It really is a shame that the Cubs are playing SF. I want CHC to lose to keep their curse intact, but I also want SF to lose to stop the E.Y.B.S.

    Ever notice how the Giants have won the World Series in even years as of late? The acronym stands for "even year BS"

    I'm pretty impressed with Toronto's performance in the post season so far.

    Still a little too early to tell, but it's looking kinda slim for my hopes of a Braves - Yankees showdown in the World Series this year.

    Whoops, I was wrong. Cubbies vs the Dodgers start their series, tomorrow, right?

    Kershaw has been a beast so far tonight. Truly one of the best in the game.

    Between 2011 and now he's been the world's best pitcher. And he seems to be a great character guy. He and his wife have built orphanages in Africa in the off-season.

    So SO happy that the Blue Jays got bounced from the ALCS 2 years in a row.

    Congratulations! Whomever you face next week between Chicago or Los Angeles is going to have a tough time against that incredible pitching your team displayed this series. It also doesn't hurt that you have one of (if not the best) managers in the game.

    That is wonderful. It is always encouraging to hear of people going above & beyond like that for the better of the world. He seems like a class-act fellow from what I've seen of him on TV.

    Lets go tribe! After 53 years of disappointment this has been an incredible year for Cleveland sports teams.

    Cubs come back 10-fold to tie the series. Going out on a limb here, but I'll say Thursday's game is still a must-win for the Cubs despite being tied even. Heading back to Wrigley this weekend down 3-2 to the Dodgers with a well-rested Kershaw waiting in the wings would put Chicago in very dangerous waters. They need to have the upper hand before flying back to the windy city. (imo)
