    Cleveland or Chicago?

    I'm going with Chicago since I have been to the city, enjoy it and the people were awesome when I was there.

  • It's hard for me to pick a fanbase that deserves a championship more than the Cubs. Not a great start to their first game though.

  • Definitely Cubs here. Seeing as how I live in Chicagoland and all of my in-laws are Cubs and Bears fans I suppose I can support one of their teams. Definitely isn't going to be the Bears....lol

  • I think this series goes 7 games. With the Cubs winning it.

  • I don't like either team, but I'm an Ohio native, so I guess I'll reluctantly root for the Indians.

  • If you're a baseball fan, aren't you a Cubs fan?

    I'll be happy for either fanbase, because these two are two of the longest suffering cities ever............but Cubs all the way. Can't even fathom 1908.

  • I have to admit, I was wary of Maddon's decision to put Kyle Schwarber in the lineup, even at DH, due to the potential for sucking due to rust and altered swinging mechanics. I guess that goes to show you why I don't manage baseball teams for a living. Schwarber has been on a tear so far. Rumor has it he will get the start at left field for game 3, when Hendricks is on the mound, and will pinch hit for games 4 and 5.

  • I gotta say. I hope the Cubs win. I hate sports fans to suffer that long. It aint right.

  • Both fan bases have suffered beyond a lifetime, and I typically root AL because I hate no DH in the NL. Go Indians!

  • If the Cubs win again - they cement their victory, so for the Indians it will be all or nothing in the name of victory.

  • Not that I have a stake in the game, and both teams are well over-due, but the Cubs need this more than about any other sporting franchise in any major sport. Hoping they pull the last game out for a win.
