Shit.

As a Yankee fan you should know shit very well.

Sorry. The season is going to be over soon, so I have to tie the shot.

Also shouldn't you be for the Red Sox winning so the Cards' don't get closer to your record World Series wins?

Good reason.

As my grandpa explained to my mom one time.

"In the World Series you cheer for the AL team, the league the Red Sox are in, unless it's the Yankees than it's anyone but them."

That was very close, I thought the delay of the pitching change would doom the Sox.

Bright side: looks like tonight will be Tim McCarver's LAST GAME.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Congratulations to BOTH teams.

Even the Cardinals fought hard to get there. Although there were some fairly blatant errors made by them. Still, at least this WS was exciting to watch.

And as I said: NO MORE TIM MCCARVER!

Took you back to '03, didn't it?

I lived almost 30 years a Sox fan before they won a Championship, and now three within ten years. Doesn't seem real.

What a turnaround from last year's dysfunction. Congratulations to a great team, to Boston, to New England and to Red Sox Nation.

I'm not a Yankee fan, but I do loathe the Red Sox more than any other team. I don't wish grievous bodily harm on anyone, but if the whole team got jock itch I wouldn't complain.

Though living out in ND I will miss the chance to fuck with hungover coworkers tomorrow morning.

The better team won for sure. But I wouldn't count the Cardinals out as being the favorite the next few years. Very young team and some great arms.

OK, what's the heartache with Tim McCarver? I don't think he's bad.

Congratulations to Andrelton Simmons on his first (of what I think will be many) gold gloves. I was hoping to see either Freddie Freeman or Adam LaRoche pick up the award for first baseman but it went to Paul Goldschmidt.
Here is the complete list of winners.

I have no problem with any of the selections (even Pedroia ) my only gripe is Bret Gardner wasn't (again) in the conversation. The guy just keeps getting the shaft.

3 Orioles as there should be, they were the best defense in the league.

Congrats to all the winners.

Yes. I'm like NOOOO! Take him out now! Then he got the bases loaded and I'm like FUCK. thankfully the manager took him out before real harm was done. The Cards could have come back at any time. They stranded like 10 people on base.

My dad died shortly before turning 46 in 2001. Never saw the Sox win. There are so many fans like that and the Red Sox are making up for it. Like 2003 to winning in 2004. From fucking up in 2011 to Bobby V last year to best this year. Sox have history and personal stories that make baseball great.

Just think. The Red Sox only went to the world series 4 times between 1918 and 2004. All went to seven games and they lost every one. No game seven this year and three wins in a decade. Amazing.

Congrats Chowd Nation. Now on to 2014. I have a great feeling about the Rockies... Actually don't, they'll still suck.
