Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ Good for you.

Sure, the Yankees lost, but you know, I wasn't aware that this suddenly made 2012 a bad season.

We did not suck the whole year. We only sucked in the ALCS. Unfortunately that was enough.

Oh, no, you don't get to play the "I was kidding" card not even a page after you were all "Cowboy Up, motherfuckers." You will take it and like it.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Congrats to the Tigers and the city of Detroit!

Man, I'm kind of torn. The Giants are at least still a Bay Area team, but I dunno... somehow with my A's out, I've found it hard not to root for the Tigers. Some combination of "if you can't beat em, join em", the fact that the A's gave it a hell of a ride (the Tigers really had to work for it against them; in some of the A's ALDS appearances in the last decade, they really fizzled out quickly), and the fact that I've just found their postseason games really fun to watch... I'm going to have a tough time deciding who to root for in the Series. Much to the chagrin of everyone, I'm sure, at my job in SF.

Assuming, of course, it is in fact the Giants. If it's Tigers vs. Cardinals, then that's easy for me; Detroit all the way.

Riiight, like you wouldn't be pissed if was your precious Cubs that did this? (And not to shit on your riff or anything but the "kidding" referred to my comment about 'gloating may now commence')

Oh well. Heartbreaking loss, but I'm still a Yankee fan and so just waiting till next year.

Of course I'd be pissed -- at the team. I was at the Bartman game in 2003, and I didn't blame him, I blamed Alex Gonzalez for booting a routine grounder, and the entire team shitting the bed in the next game. I wouldn't be pissing and moaning at the people rightfully calling me out on saying shit like "cowboy up" (I wouldn't have said that, for example), then saying "let the gloating begin," then complaining when there's actual gloating. You can't hide behind "I was kidding" when people decide, oh, hey, these last four games have been funny as hell.

Face it: There are quite a few people, myself included, tickled as hell to see the Yankees barely squeak by an incredibly mediocre Orioles team (needing some bizarre wizardry by Raul Ibanez and a masterpiece of a game from Sabathia to do so) and then not only have their bats fall completely silent but get swept by a Tigers team that fell ass-backwards into the postseason.

The Yankees imploded over the last month, and it's been magical. I love schadenfreude, and I can't wait for the impending A-Rod drama.

Edit: Holy shit, no matter what happens in the NL, the World Series will have two sub-90-win teams in it. I love baseball.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Fair enough. I asked for all of that, and I'm sorry.

That being said:
