Let's go with the A's, just because I want to hear Hawk's reaction if they win it this year.

Cannot, will not pull for Cleveland. Live in Cleveland area and cannot stand these hypocritical fans. Boo Thome when he came back as a Sox and cheer when almost beaned. Then they fall all over themselves when he came back wearing their uniform. Classless fans. Don't deserve success in the post season.

Agreed. Remember the opening day scenes in the movie Major League ? That was pretty much is Cleveland in a nutshell in the 70's and 80's. These same people who didn't go near Municipal Stadium when the Indians were losing filled up the Jake when the Indians were winning.

Thome wasn't the only one who was booed. Albert Belle was booed and had stuff thrown at him.

Well...Belle probably deserved to be booed.

I am rooting for Pittsburgh and Tampa. I can live with the Dodgers and Athletics, though. I can't support Detroit, Cleveland, Boston, or St. Louis.

I think it'll be Tigers-Cards again for the World Series.


I want it to be Pirates-A's. Uncle Bud may cancel it and call a tie.

I'm hoping the Pirates or Dodgers win it all. I'm not actively rooting against anyone. Well, maybe St. Louis...

I'm hoping for a Red Sox - Dodgers World series with the Dodgers taking it.

Can't cheer for the Pirates because I know a good portion of their fans are also Steeler's fans.

Same here. I think Selig might require the players to suit up with Cubs and Yankees unis though.

I'd rather see the best teams go so I want Dodgers vs Detroit or Boston. I hate watching some wild card team win it.

Hate St. Louis and Oakland. Boston, Cleveland and Cincinnati irritate me. Pittsburgh, meh. Dodgers against Detroit wouldn't be too bad, I guess.

Better yet, hope all the series are sweeps so it can get done, asap. Worst baseball season in memory, close the door and make it go away.

Anybody but Detroit. Too many damn Tigers fans in Chicago to have to deal with that obnoxious aftermath. I'd rather see Boston win and that's saying a lot.

Personally I'm pulling for Pittsburgh.
