    Did that end in Boston or Cleveland?

    Both ALDS series-winning sweeps against the Red Sox ended in Fenway.

    I'm looking for that, and rooting for a Midwestern WS:

    Also, a war between two of the longest current MLB title droughts in MLB history if that happens.

    Which is why you have to root for this matchup.

    Not me. I hope the Bartman curse goes on. I do hope they win this series though. I've seen SF backdoor its way into too many titles.

    Indians-Giants would be a 1954 rematch, that's kind of cool.

    That's funny. I recently read A Day In The Bleachers written about that series by Arnold Hano. Then I saw Hano at a screening of a documentary about his writing career.

    So far the Cubs are looking good, though.

    Well that was Super Fun!!

    I'm also rooting for a Cubs/Indians WS.
    2016 - At least we won as many postseason games as the Red Sox

    The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese in the trap.

    If LA loses, I will be on the Cubs/Indians bandwagon.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    This. I would like to think the Yankees played a small, yet indirect, role in the outcome.

    Obviously Mays would have to throw out first ball for Game 3 (from stands I reckon). Sadly only 4 players I could count from Indians team who are still with us, none of them frontliners: 4th outfielder Wally Westlake, backup infielder Rudy Regalado, BUC Hal Naragon, and probably the most well known, reliever Don Mossi.

    Indians-Dodgers would be a 1920 rematch (Bill Wambsganss!). Pretty sure no one from those teams will be making an appearance unless there's a pregame seance.

    Re: ALDS - Cleveland vs Boston

    Cal Ripken was on Dan Patrick this morning and the subject turned to Ortiz. Ripken skirted around the 1st ballot HOF question. He then went on to say he couldn't help getting caught up in the "emotion" and found himself rooting for Ortiz - even though he wasn't really supposed to.

    I think it gives some credibility to a few of us saying it seemed the Ernie, Cal and Ron were rooting for Boston.
