Funny. My in-laws are downstate in Cardinal country, so that's who I go with.

AL: I'll go with the Rays, just because I like an underdog.

NL: I'll take the Cardinals. Because so many Cubs fans hate them.

Man, am I torn on the AL side.

Cleveland/Detroit - their fans annoy me.
Boston - ditto.
Oakland - Dave Stewart and his jock.
Tampa - 2008.

Is any team not named Boston a sufficient answer?

AL: Oakland or Cleveland.

NL: Pirates. Should they lose, Cincinnati.

Oakland (these guys are the REAL Moneyball team)

Pittsburgh (Imagine an entire generation of Pirate fans not knowing winning baseball.)

The Wahoos, followed by the Rays. So at least Ill have a round with interest. I cant hope for a Beane team, or boston team and literately dispise Leyland. So if Clev or Tampa arent in the the AL championship series, Ill wait for World Series and hope for the NL team.
