Ok, Chicago or Cleveland, who are you rooting for?

Really neither, I am a hard core Cardinal fan.
But I think Chicago has waited long enough.
Besides, I am one of those guys that thinks the pitcher should have a turn at bat.

I'm a bit torn. I love me some Francona. I'm a big fan of The too. I'll wait till the games start.

If the Cubs win, Theo will go down as the greatest GM ever. He will have created teams in Boston and Chicago that won the WS.

Epstein / Francona '20

Cubbies. They give me hope that someday the Mariners might even make it to the playoffs or maybe the series.

I really wanted to see Red Sox vs. Cubs in the series then it was who ever beat the jays.

I was born in St Louis to a mom and dad that were born and raised there. But for right now were rooting for the cubs.
I grew up about 60 south of St. Louis, on the Illinois side.
My Grandmother was a die hard Cardinal fan. I have it in my blood, LOL. But it is time for Chicago's Cubbies to shine so I will await next year and have high hopes.

I live in Cubs territory. I am a Twins fan but it is pretty magical here right now. They should be competitive for years with their youth but no guarantees. They need to do it now. Indians have some nasty pitching too. It should be fun to watch. (or boring if most pitch to their potential).

I really want the Cubs, but think the Indians will make short order of the Cubs.

Hope I'm wrong...

I think it would be cool, if it went 7, and The Cubs hit a walk off Homer to win it all.

Wait... I think the home field advantage is the AL's - ? So that couldn't happen.

Maybe in game 5!

Looks like most folks are pulling for the Cubs. If they can score early they could win, but that Cleveland bullpen is nasty.
Like Charles I'm conflicted, I really like both managers ( probably the best 2 in the game), but for history's sake I'm rooting for the Cubs.

Managers don't hit, pitch, field or run. They make a lineup and make pitching changes. Tito is the best at bullpen management I have ever seen. He will March out a better starting pitcher zero times.
Lester is the best starting pitcher in the series by a lot. If Cleveland is to win, Franconia will need to push all the right buttons. The Cubs have a huge advantage with starting pitching. That's tough to overcome.
I'll be rooting for Tito. It will be a lot more fun if he's on his game.

Go AL,
