Hi all,

As of today, the Chicago White Sox (my favorites) are 22-10, that's a win-loss records most mlb pitchers can only dream of.
And the Cubs are 24-6 better than most Cy Young award winners. They're completely dominant until now. Let that sink in.

I hope I don't jinks the two teams by posting this.

Funny how The Americans adapted an English Schoolgirls Game into one of their major sports.

A viscous stereotype.

Nah. A fact.




The game of rounders has been played in England since Tudor times,[1] with the earliest reference[1][5] being in 1744 in A Little Pretty Pocket-Book where it was called "base-ball"[6

You probably can.



Bearing in mind that 8 of the worlds top ten most popular sports where invented in Britain. We would still be rubbish.

Actually have tickets to the Nats/Cubs 3 game July 13-15 series at Nationals Park. This past 4 game sweep of the 2nd/3rd best team in MLB is no fluke. The Cubby bats are '27 Yankees-esque.

I think the starter's ERA is more impressive considering where they play their home games.

If what you think is correct, all the more power to the 2016 Cubbies. I hope it happens this year, but I've been a fan of the lovable losers all my life, so history isn't on my side

Add enough steroids into the players and beer into the fans, and even "Ring Around the Rosy" becomes quite entertaining as a spectator sport...

I'm disturbed by the idea of school girls on steroids.

Dear Cubbies Fans,

I hope your hopes are destroyed by Bartman rearing his face again and snatching the ball away, therefore ruining your dreams of a World Series, a World Series victory(let alone four) and any hopes of them winning anything other than a pie in the face, in your lifetime.

I sincerely wish that billy goats would eat the ivory off of the famed wall and run wild in the streets of Chicago just to remind you all of the curse, day in and day out.

Do I have to remind you of the rallying cry of a Cubbies fan on Opening Day? "Just wait 'til next year!!!". I wish you no other ill will, except that it will hopefully take another century before the dreaded and absolutely lousy Cubbies make a World Series appearance and another before they win one. We will all be long gone by then so who cares if the crappy Cubbies win anything?

Signed,

A Die Hard Reds Fan - I bet you all thought I was a Card's fan, eh?

/Extreme sarcasm off. It looks as if the WS will go through Chicago or N.Y., in the NL, as I don't see anyone who can compete with them. Frikking Arrietta is insanely good and the rest of the staff ain't bad(even Lester who can't throw to first unless the ball is stuck in his glove) and they have tons of hitters. The Damned Mets are also loaded so I see the winner of them in the NLC as the eventual WS champs, unless KC can get back there. KC did it last year and with only minor changes I see them being able to do it again, IF they can get to the WS.

The Sox, both Sox and Sawx, are looking good after a month. I haven't seen too much baseball this season, so what is KC at right now? Can they compete with those two?

Bloody Cubbies swept the Nats and the Nats, well, I have no confidence in them at all no matter how good they are supposed to be so I see N.Y. Mets and Cubbies in the NLCS vs. one of the three I mention in the ALCS. The AL, I could be wrong as I don't see them as much but I cannot see anyone else in the NL making a play besides those two.

I usually suck at predictions but I did, back in 1990, predict the Reds would win it that year and they did. FWIW, less than $.02 adjusted due to inflation, of course.
