Would you root for detroit, if they made it?

I personally Loathe detroit

Id gladly see the mets win.

If the Sox don't make it. (They will)

1. Yankees
2. Braves


Mets and Tigers: I'd go with the Tigers, I loathe the Mets.

Tigers because I'd like to see our division represented and also would show we were beat by the best if that happened.

I agree, I would cheer for Detoilet.

If not the Sox, then Toronto and Detroit are the only AL teams I'd like to see win it. I don't care for any teams in the West (I dislike Texas, Oakland, and Anaheim, indifferent towards Seattle but they're not going anywhere), don't like the Twins, and can't stand the Red Sox or Yankees (though I dislike the Carmines more).

The NL? Cards are my 2nd fave team, but there is no team there I have any disdain for.

If its not the Sox winning it.. I would like to see Oakland take it because of Frank Thomas...

If the Sox don't make it I will cheer on any team still in it in the AL Central. After that (aside from the Jays) it's NL for me.

If, if, if the Sox didn't make it, I'd have no problem rooting for Detroit or anybody in the AL West. In the East, I have no problem with Toronto. Just don't let it be the Yankees or Boston. I'm so sick and damn tired of hearing how wonderful they are.

As for the NL, can't root for the Mets because they're a New York team that isn't the Rangers. I could live with anyone in the West and the Cardinals are one of my favorite NL teams.

Yeah I forgot about the Cards. Since I have to move to St. Louis in the next couple months it would be good to see the Cardinals win if the Sox don't make it. I'm going to try to be an NL bandwaggoner once I get there. My love for the Sox won't diminish at all but I figure if I don't at least try to enjoy local baseball there I'm selling myself short. They do have some great fans. I'll sure miss living in the city though... :whiner:

As much I can't believe these words are coming out of my mouth (or hands in this case), I would probably cheer for Detroit, just because it would be nice to see an AL Central repeat.

If Detroit didn't make it, I would root for whichever AL team was there, just to prove that the NL sucks a hard one.

Of course all of this is a moot point, because not only will the Sox make the playoffs, they will win the World Series.

EDIT-I would root for the AL team, UNLESS St. Louis was the NL representative, they are my 2nd favorite team.

It all depends upon the NL representation but I would cheer for the Tigers. I actually like their team because they look like the Sox from last year. Also I usually cheer for original teams of the AL and NL. But if the Tigers were to play the Pirates, Cards, or Expos then I'd have to side with the National League.

I actually like the Mets, so I wouldn't root for the Tigers.

If we don't make the playoffs, I'll root for whatever NL team makes it.

I wouldn't have a rooting interest in the World Series. It might come down to the team team playing whoever I hate the most. If the A's were in the Series, for example, I would be rooting hard for the National League. The same applies for the Yankees. Texas is on the same list, although not as high as the A's or Yankees.

Really, I loathe more American League teams because of how they have punked the Sox over the years, so I would probably end up hoping the National League team won it.

Not that it matters who I root for.

I've always rooted for the A.L. in the World Series with the exception of '95 & '97. My hatred for the Cleveland Indians knew no bounds back then because of Albert Belle, Jason Bere and Cleveland fans in general.

There were a few particularly annoying Cleveland fans that used to troll over at White Sox.com and just continuously talk trash about the Sox all season long.

It was incredibly satisfying to go on their boards the night they blew game # 7 to the Fla Marlins in 1997. I titled my thread there: SOMEBODY MADE A MESA 'R WORLD SERIES CELEBRATION!! :D:
