This should be a good series.  The two teams that got out to smoking hot starts.  Neither team is despicable.  ;)

I’m happy.
A lot can change in four years, I guess is what you're saying.

I'm rooting for the Astros, but I don't think I've ever said I hate the Dodgers.  I've hated some of their players over the years.

As long as the Yankees are out, I don't really care who wins but I'll side with the Dodgers since they play real baseball as opposed to that designated hitter crap that they do in the junior league.

Ladies and Gents, I hope you haven't forgotten that Fox is televising the Series.  You know WHO that means. :facepalm:

At least McCarver's been put out to pasture.   Smoltz does a pretty good job considering he's from Michigan.

Amen on both counts, but I'm still going to mute and close caption.  Screw Joe Suck!

Giancarlo Stanton edged Joey Votto by two points to win the National League MVP award.  302 points to 300 points.  :o  

1st place vote = 14 points (Stanton = 10, Votto = 10)
2nd place = 9 points (Stanton = 10, Votto = 9)
3rd place = 8 points (Stanton = 5, Votto = 4)
4th place = 7 points (Stanton = 3, Votto = 5)
5th place = 6 points (Stanton = 1, Votto = 2)
6th place = 5 points (Stanton = 1, Votto = 0)

I would have voted for Votto, but I'm more of an advanced stats guy.    Not a surprise that Stanton won, he had the gaudier traditional numbers.   Well, one at least, but it was damned impressive.

When players are having that great of a year, they might as well make 'em co-MVP's.  There is no wrong answer on this one.  They were both worthy.
