    Dear Fox,

    Treat Canada Better.

    Signed,

    Courtesy.

    To the Post,

    Great baseball, how will they keep up this drama for a whole series?


  2. - Sam Weinberg - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:38 pm:

    Jealous


  3. - lake county democrat - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:38 pm:

    Two likeable teams. Rooting for Kansas City because they’re representing the AL Central, the Cubs treated Swain poorly and he deserves another chance at managing and a KC series win would help (Ricky Renteria did a good job w/ the Cubs in his one season and also deserves another chance: I hope the Sox hire him for bench coach).


  4. - Give Me A Break - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:38 pm:

    KC in six.


  5. - God Said to Abraham - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:38 pm:

    KC in 5


  6. - Juice - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:41 pm:

    I thought Geoff Bluhm was going to make a cameo last night.


  7. - chi - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:46 pm:

    How great was the inside the park homer- hope the non-New York team wins.


  8. - Formerly Known As... - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:48 pm:

    Eric Hosmer is kissing the infield dirt today. Bill Buckner never got that second chance.


  9. - doofusguy - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:49 pm:

    Go Royals - Ned Yost deserves credit too


  10. - Stones - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:50 pm:

    FOX network sports coverage is as poor as their political coverage. Harold Reynolds is to baseball what Bill O’Reilly is to politics. Just sayin’


  11. - truth - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 3:59 pm:

    KC in 4…record low viewership


  12. - Minnie - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:06 pm:

    mets in 7, going to be a long series.


  13. - Anon - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:08 pm:

    I thought the Cubs won the World Series already?!


  14. - D.P.Gumby - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:09 pm:

    Cardinals and White Sox next year.


  15. - oldhp - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:12 pm:

    Royals in 5…………………


  16. - Wensicia - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:22 pm:

    Not watching, still down about the Cubs.


  17. - Jordan - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:26 pm:

    Wensicia, the curse is real.


  18. - A guy - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:26 pm:

    KC. They are fun to watch.


  19. - anon - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:29 pm:

    Mets in 6 or 7, pitching is way too good. Mets pound Cueto tonight.


  20. - After Further Review - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:29 pm:

    It was a great game yesterday.

    The Cubs are going to have to stock up on additional pitchers if the team is going to make a meaningful stretch run again. In days of yore, the World Series amounted to an additional 4 to 7 games. Now the postseason can mean an additional 11 to 20 games to be played after the regular season. The Cubs were not well positioned to go the distance this year.


  21. - anon - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:30 pm:

    wensicia, you should be thrilled the Cubs made it that far


  22. - Skeptic - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:31 pm:

    Have any more 5 hour games and the talk of speeding up the rate of play will pop up again (not that I disagree with it…)

    Not picking a winner, don’t know much about either team, just bummed it wasn’t the Jays and the Cubs.


  23. - enoughalready - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:35 pm:

    Coach Ditka will win the World Series.


  24. - anon - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:35 pm:

    Don’t be surprised if the Cubs sign Lackey


  25. - Wensicia - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:44 pm:

    ==wensicia, you should be thrilled the Cubs made it that far==

    I am; they had a great year up to the NLCS!


  26. - anon - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:48 pm:

    Toughest division in MLB and they ran into a buzz saw of a pitching staff. It will be interesting to see what Pitt, STL and the Cubs do in the off season.


  27. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:51 pm:

    I have a couple things I need to do, but the World Series will be on and I’m sure there will be enough to keep my interest.

    The Cubs? Next year, with a couple very specific add-ons, and they keep some health? Whoa…


  28. - Going All The Way - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:57 pm:

    Mets in seven. Last night was a classic, and it’s going to get even better.


  29. - Robert the Bruce - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 4:59 pm:

    The MLB international broadcast team is better than the Fox US broadcast team.


  30. - @MisterJayEm - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 5:11 pm:

    Cavaliers: 95
    Bulls: 97

    – MrJM


  31. - Amalia - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 5:33 pm:

    October 26, 2005….ah………. Go Sox!


  32. - anonano - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 6:02 pm:

    October 27 and 28, 2011—-go Cardinals!!


  33. - Now What? - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 6:06 pm:

    Can’t stay up for 14 innings every night! Great baseball. Ready for spring training! Royals in 5 just to stick it to Cardinal fans. #snark


  34. - FormerParatrooper - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 6:10 pm:

    I revised part of my previous prediction. I said KC over Chi in 5. Now just KC in 5. Hope next year it will be Royals and Cubs


  35. - Responsa - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 6:14 pm:

    I will watch every WS game and may the best team win. They are both interesting teams playing on an elite level, as last night’s competition demonstrated. It’s cool how much one can appreciate and enjoy the games for the love of baseball when you’re not all emotionally wrapped up in one of the teams.


  36. - PENSIONS ARE OFF LIMITS - Wednesday, Oct 28, 15 @ 7:43 pm:

    Cubs in 2108


  37. - Shawshank Red - Thursday, Oct 29, 15 @ 8:19 am:

    @ Now What? = I’m rooting for the Royals too. It’ll be nice to see them finally win a title fair and square. #snark

    And I’ve heard the rumors that the Cubs would sign Lackey also. And Heyward, and Price, and Greinke, and Trout, and Kershaw, and…


  38. - Secret Square - Thursday, Oct 29, 15 @ 8:53 am:

    I was hoping for a Cubs-Royals Series. Well, one out of two ain’t bad :-)


  39. - Jaded - Thursday, Oct 29, 15 @ 10:16 am:

    The Mets thought they were the hottest team in baseball until they ran into the Royals. Great games and great baseball, and thanks to the inventor of the DVR so I can walk away and come back and not miss anything except the awful Harold Reynolds commentary.
