I'm rooting for the dodgers, even though I've resigned myself to a first round defeat to the cardinals. Their pitching isn't deep enough this year, and you won't be able to make all those comebacks against a playoff caliber team with real closers. Other than that, I don't really see myself rooting for any specific team to win although I'd prefer if the yankees don't buy another championship this year. But, I'm ambivalent about the red sox. Their fans are the most annoying fans in sports, with their 'oh, woe is me' shreiks. It would be cool if their team won so they would finally shut up. But, its also fun to laugh at them when their team blows up again too. I don't really understand boston fans at all. Sure, their baseball team hasn't won since the early 1900s. But, other teams like the chicago white sox haven't won either for a very long time, almost as long as the fabled curses of the red sox and cubs. But, you don't hear the white sox fans complain. Besides, Boston is a great sports town, with a history of championships in other sports. They had the Bruins in the 60s, the Celtics win championships with Wilt and Bird, and now they have the Patriots, the last football dynasty.
