I doubt this will get the response the other poll did but I'm suprised nobody else has done it yet.

Personally, I'm torn. On one hand you've got the Cubs "arch rival" and on the other you've got the team that came out of nowhere to grab the WC while the Cubs choked it away. We win either way. :cool:

I hate it when Wild CArd teams win in the playoffs. Granted I rooted for the Marlins last year (playing against the Cubs), but I just hate it. It is not pure and the more often it happens, the more Ithink Selig will think about expanding the playoffs to more teams.

Then again, if the Cards win I think that Burly Mon might head there when he gets the chance because they are a winning team.

But hell, Go Cards! I just hate the Cubs soooo much!:angry:

I'd like to see the Astros do it, just because they were all but written off by just about everyone, then turned it around and just went on a tear. But honestly, if the Cards win, my heart wouldn't be broken. I just have a slight preference for the Astros. I'll be rooting to the NL in the World Series no matter who gets there.

But just think, had the WC been around in the 50's and 60's the Sox might not be #2 on the waiting list for a WS crown...

Would you feel the same way if the Sox managed to win a ring as the WC team?

I'm pulling for the Astros just because they basically came from no where to win the wildcard.

And because...Ausmus and Backe are adorable! heh..:redface:

I have to pull for the Cards for a couple of reasons. One reason is that I don't think I could stomach all of the Clemens vs. the Yanks or Red Sox hype that would surely accompany the WS. The other is that our man Tony is managing the Cards and I want him to win a ring.

Go Cardinals! I met a Cardinals fan the other day and his 2nd favorite team was the Sox. We had a good conversation about baseball. Plus there's something about teams from Texas that gives me the jibblies.

I voted Cardinals for no reason in particular, but it doesn't matter to me who wins.

Cardinals. Although, I am in debt to the Stros' for destroying the Scrubs!

I don't care as long as the National League wins the WS.

The only time I would ever say that is if the ALCS came down to another Yankees/Red Sox match up...

... 2004 ALCS, yawn!

I'm going for the Cards. They have a place in my heart.

But if the Stros win, I wouldn't mind. But I'll be slightly hurt.

I'm voting Cards, even though I like all NL Central teams that are not the Flubs. I can't forget the Cards killing them and having the Flubs blow that 8-2 lead and the misery the Flub fans suffered.

I voted for the Cardinals. I think it would be hysterical if St. Louis won the World Series in the year that was supposed to be the "Guaranteed World Series season" on the North Side.

Cardinals. I like their team, they are great to watch. I like Tony LaRussa. Their fans hate the Cubs. I have a few pretty good friends here who are originally from St. Louis, and they are about the only people in GR that I can relate to because of our mutual hatred for Cubdome, which has swept Grand Rapids like a plague in recent years. Plus I went to a Cards game in August and had a great time--I was wearing my Sox hat, and got mostly positive comments from other fans.

However, if Houston wins, that's not so bad either.

Cards, in 4 ....the 'stros have done their job, beating the Cobz. Enough of the Clemens/BoSox/NYY connection/showdown.

~Cards in 4 in the WS, let's get this thing over with....onto next season for a White Sox Winner!

Didn't he win one with the Athletics in 1989?
