  • Meh...

    Really impressed with the moves they made to get here though..

    Still, absent the MAriners I will pull for the Royals, and maybe the Twins if they make it (because I live here)

    Well I'm a huge fan of one of their season ticket holders. He sits behind home plate, well because he can.

  • That offense is outstanding, but I am very skeptical of their pitching. As a Rays fan, I know how capable David Price is of laying an egg in the playoffs. Then you have RA Dickey and Estrada/Buerhle behind that?

    You're putting a LOT of eggs into the David Price basket there. One bad outing and the Jays are in deep crap.

    May sound crazy but I think Texas actually has the best playoff roster. I would believe more in the Royals if Cueto didn't pitch like crap the last month and they didn't lose Greg Holland

    Marcus Stroman is on fire and fresh as he just came back in September and is 4-0. I think the pitching will be fine Dickey is pitching his best since coming to Toronto and Price is dominating every team.

    Their fans come into Safeco and act like Dic** They are just as bad as yanks and redsoxs fans. Had some French Canadian Jay's Fan in a BR Ryan jersey trying to start fights. Belligerent as hell and wouldnt shut the hell up, she was escorted out after 4.5 innings of her BS, flipping everyone the bird as she left, total classless beotch. I felt sorry for her husband who looked like a helpless puppy dog following this idiot around. That's just one of 3 incidents Ive had with Jay's fans since Safeco opened.

    That stinks. Most of our fan base is a good group nothing like the @$$h0le Yanks or Redsox, I can't believe a French Canadian cheers for the Jays as they usually hate anything outside of Quebec.

    That's what I thought too. I never had problems with the "Canadian invasion" when the M's played in the Kingdome.
    I generally don't have problems with Canadians in general as y'all seem to be a friendly bunch, and I am a quarter Canadian myself. It seems to be the French Canadian part of the Jays fanbase I've had run ins with (at least 2 out of the 3 incidents).

  • I'm rooting for the Dodgers. Grew up in Spokane when the team there was the AAA farm club of LA (and there were no Mariners) so my like for the franchise comes from that.\

    Would love to see the Jays win if only for my favorite bass player being a huge fan of the team and a season ticket holder.

    Yeah I'm sure MLB was really coveting that HOUSTON - TEXAS ALCS

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I tried to warn the Jays backers that David Price could not be trusted. He put the Jays behind the 8-ball, just like he did to Tampa so many times.

    Price was not the reason we lost game two, we lost game two as our manager put a 42 year old pitcher in the game in extra innings. Brutal. The play at second was close put they did not have a view that showed his foot off the bag. Umpire calling balls ans strikes was just awful. We need a miracle to win the series.

    No but you went out and got Price to win games and be the ace, not lose to a pitcher that hadn't got to the 6th in 7 straight starts.

  • Never understood how these guys can get mad and try to start a royal rumble over a little showboating while being content to just stand there after a deliberately disgusting, reckless, and unsportsmanlike slide broke a player's leg. They wouldn't last one series in the NFL if a little marquee celebration blows that much sand in their meat canoes. Cam Newton would probably die on the field.

    It's kind of bizarre to have a bit of a renaissance final four -- Cubs haven't won it in 107 years while the Jays, Royals, and Dodgers all had championships in the mid 80's to early 90's. Finally, no prospect of the Yankees, Cardinals, Red Sox, or Giants winning it again for a yawn-inducing nth time. It'd be cool to see the Cubs end their drought and have the Back to the Future 2 timeline come to fruition.

    Bat flip was terrific. Don't give up 500 foot bombs if you don't want that happening. If there was a next game he's definitely getting plunked but it's all part of it.

    At times... and this us shaping up to be an amazing playoff...but it could use some character...in my opinion. I know baseball purists hate stuff like that. Understandable.

    Nothing wrong with having fun when you hit the game winning HR in a tough series, it would be hard to control your emotions on that one.

    Well they're still in the running is what I meant, as are the Mets. I just forgot to throw them in for whatever reason, I know there's a game 5 still. No matter who wins, we'll have some match ups and an eventual champion that hasn't hoisted the trophy in quite some time, and that's always better than seeing the same teams with the highest payrolls pretty much bring their reservation to the playoffs every year.

    Maybe they're jealous of the NFL's increasing success and are copying the business model.

    Nothing wrong with it, when you hit a home run like that.


    I just loved it because you can tell how much emotion was in that swing due to the flukey run scored in the top half of the inning.

    Just a mix of pent up rage and happiness in one swing of the bat.

    E2 hit a damn BOMB too. Congrats to your Jays.. thought they were dead in the water down 2-0

    I agree. I'm down with Joe Carter's reaction in 1993, for example; he'd just won the World Series. Bautista's shot, though, was a home run - clutch as it might have been - in the 7th inning of the 5th game of the NLDS. Not the same thing.
