If I could be granted one wish, it would be that the Cardinals obliterate this self centered team and it's ridiculous fan base, with a phony sense of entitlement.

St. Louis played great to get into the World Series. I didn't think anyone would get by the Dodgers.

Detroit's starting pitching was insanely good.  They easily could have been facing the Cards.

Happy to say GO SOX!!!

Every time a Cards player masturbates some St. Louis sportswriter asks why nobody else is getting off.

I believe you proved the opposite by your initial statement.

After the disaster that was last season, I had zero expectations of this team this year.  If anything, I would have bet on last place in the division.

The first time I ever saw my mother cry was when she woke me up to watch the Sox win the World Series in 1986.

There are some "wicked pisssah brah" fans, but so of us deserve this.

The problem I have with Boston and it's fan base is that they are the biggest bunch of phonies of anyone. They act like they're the anti-Yankees when they spend almost as much money as the Bronx Bombers but somehow in their case it makes them noble because they haven't been as successful.

As a Tigers fan I'm a bit honked off right now.  But, as an NHL fan I've got to give the Sawx props for some epic playoff beards.

Citation needed.  Boston fans know exactly how much the Sox spend, and they know it's necessary when you compete in a division year in/year out with the Yankees.  I think you're just jealous.

Yes.  The history between the teams has nothing to do with it.  The anti-Yankees would be...the D-Backs, or something?  You're right.  Sox fans hate the Yankees for sh*ts and grins, and not because, you know, THAT'S THEIR BIGGEST F*CKING RIVAL AND HAS BEEN SINCE BEFORE ANYONE HERE WAS BORN.

/Go Cubs...what's that?  Oh, ffs, what else is new...alright, sure, go Sox

I was rooting for Detroit; their starting pitching was lights out. Their bullpen was not championship quality in the crunch. When Fielder fell down I said words that are not for young children's ears.

Eh, I'm not saying anyone should root for either team that normally doesn't.  But rather than the casual indifference a World Series would get from most people with two teams in it they aren't rooting for, you have two teams a lot of people just love to hate.  For the Sox most will say it's the money they spend or the beards.  For the Cardinals it will be the holier than thou attitude of the players.  Everyone will hate on both team's fans.  The Sox fans as douches, the Cardinals fans and the whole BFIB thing.  It'll all be a smokescreen for the fact everyone is jealous as fark of the success both teams have had, but that's what makes it so fun.

To paraphrase a hilarious comment I saw on Fark last night, "If it's Sox vs. Cardinals I'm rooting for the meteor."
 
2013-10-20 01:10:49 AM
A hurt Miggy, a bad Prince, a carton of Marlboros, and a terrible bullpen do not win games.  Good luck Sox, as if you're reading this.

/Tigers SP was still pretty freaking amazing, though.

I was really trying hard to come up with something insulting to say in return, but then I saw that you live in Texas. That's good enough for me.
 
2013-10-20 01:11:36 AM
GO CARDINALS THEN!

Ugh, I dislike both these teams, but the Red Sox just beat my favorite team and them and their fans acted like total douchebags the first two games. So go Cards I guess.

I feel bad for Iglesias. Got traded from the team that ended up making it to the World Series, made what ended up being a huge error, and then was the last out.

The man is just lucky.  I wish the Phils still had him, and Werth, and Pence.

Tiger's bullpen gives up two grand slams, and lose each game they gave them up in. Otherwise Detroit would have won the series.

Phillies fan here also.  Remember Shane's grand slam home run against Milwaukee Brewers/CC Sabathia in 2008 NLDS.  He and Jim Thome (another ex-Phillie) only players in Post Season history to hit 2 grand slams.
Shane was well liked by all the fans.  Good guy. Can see him running in from outfield when Phils clinched the 2008 World Series.

Life long Sox fan here.. I can never figure out how/why people call Sox fans d-bags. Fans are the same everywhere. You can always find fans that satisfy whatever your warped opinion is. The Sox this year are the best team I've ever seen. I'll be surprised if they don't win the ws fairly easily. Every day is a different hero.you never know who it Will be, but someone always steps up. GO SOX!!

Classic case of "Stop liking what I don't like" with geographical preference added in to spice things up. Every team has douchebag fans. Get over it.

Not a Sox fan. But your team is amazing.  Coming from the depths of despair last year in last place to not only first place but tied for the best record in baseball this year.  First time in many years that teams with best records will face each other in World Series.

Simple:  It's much easier to say, "I hate the Sox/Cardinals/Whoever because their fans are dochebags" than it is "I hate the Sox/Cardinals/Whoever because their team is better than mine."

That's what it boils down to.

I like Jonny Gomes a lot, and I loathe Matt Holliday, so I guess I'm pulling for the Red Sox now. Though I admire the hell out of the Saint Louis development system.

Just a completely random observation here, but Shane Victorino's beard makes him look like Satan.

Cagey B: I loathe Matt Holliday


Really?  He seems like the most unoffensive dude there is.  I'm not even sure he has the ability to speak.  I thought the only people that hated him were Cardinals fans still butthurt because they think his contract led to the Cardinals' inability to keep Pujols.  Though the number of people pining for him has certainly declined this year.
