Are you trying to goddamn troll me by referring to the Kansas City (MISSOURI) Royals as "Kansas?"

What the actual fuck dude? :evil:

I guess I'll feel a little less badly for Montreal when we take the series from them. :twisted:

I'm not a baseball fan, but I think it's awesome that the Mets could make it to the World Series tonight.

You know it's bad when the Cubs got their bullpen working in the 1st inning...damn, that's bad.

I'm so very fortunate to see the Royals win a second consecutive pennant. Last year was just an amazing run but this year, everybody knew they were coming (despite some pretty shitty mainstream predictions for them) and they still won the league. Winning it for the first time in 29 years was a hell of a thing last year but repeating and doing so against some VERY formidable competition? That's ace.

The Blue Jays were damn scary team and despite the despicable actions of a few of the lot, I was genuinely happy to see their fans rally behind them. I wish them the best of luck next year (especially if Bautista is gone lol; that guy's a dick).

Let's go Royals!

Let's break some MLB exec hearts and beat the Mets!

congrats again, deserved win for the Royals, but are people really legit upset at Bautista over the bat flip? Seems unbelievably silly to me.

I personally have no opinion on the ridiculous bat toss (he threw the damn thing lol). I do however hold little regard for throwing a tantrum a couple of times a game when he or a teammate makes an out or takes a called strike. What truly makes me dislike him is how he threw his 2B under the bus after a bloop hit fell between them, thus putting on the first runner of a huge inning that led to an eventual Royals win. He didn't even consider that he was wrong but let Goins unfairly take ALL of the blame for the gaffe. Oh yeah, he developed this very immature habit of taunting Royals fans whenever the Jays took a lead in Kansas City including (but not limited to) motioning to throw a ball to kids in the stands only to hold it and run back to the dugout. Sorry but the man is a dick and I've no respect for him.

haha. that psyche throw is kinda funny. I'll be honest I only watched bits and pieces of the postseason this year, I haven't really followed the team at all in recent years. I wasn't even sure which one Bautista was lol. Sounds he made some dick moves tho...I only knew about the bat flip thing.

Ok, folks, so this is it. Tonight is Game 1. Who does everyone think will win the Series? Since the Cardinals aren't there, I'm just going to sit back and watch it for the fun. My brother is a die-hard Mets fan, so I guess I'm pulling for them a little bit more, but what do all of you think?

Having grown up in the Kansas City area, I was a huge Royals fan as a youngster. I haven't really been into MLB since the '94 strike, but I'm happy to see the Royals in the big one. I'm also happy to see the Mets there. Gotta go with the Royals, but my level of passion and dedication only compels me to Google the score later tonight.

That would be fun...maybe Marsh can post a vid of himself doing cartwheels if the Royals win. :D

I'm kinda rooting for KC, so at least I can feel better knowing the Blue Jays lost to the team that won the World Series....

Phew!

I feel good about the Royals going to Queens with a 2-0 series lead.

Game 1 was gut clenching insanity.

Game 2 was "over" with 3 innings to spare

I'd have bought a hat and eaten it if you'd have told me that Johnny Cueto (he of the most erratic post-acquisition performance) would throw a 2 hit complete game and completely outperform pending Cy Young runner-up Jacob De Grom. There's just no way that could have been foreseen.

Anyhow, I'm skeptical that the Royals will sweep the Mets but if they can just take one (but preferably two, of course lol) in NYC, I think they'll take it all.

Mets 9-3 last night. Those first 2 losses woke those fuckers UP.

^That motherfucker of a pitcher deliberately threw at our SS's head to start that game (he also happens to be the team's hottest hitter this postseason)
But hey, he's "Thor" or some shit; It's okay when HE does it but when Ventura did it this year he was called a "thug" and "despicable" and so forth

disgusting

At least the Royals are in the position of needing one more win to clinch now. Nothing could be better than walking of that field with the World Series trophy as "Thor" and his classier compatriots have to take it in.

Yeah, I'm still kind of pissed about that shit.

Trying hard to put my soreness aside, I really hope the Royals just finish the darn thing tonight. Edinson Volquez's last game was a gem of a game 1 win that occurred on the same day his father died (he allegedly didn't know about it until after he was removed from the game; this was done per his wife's wishes) so he'll be with a heavy heart in the game tonight. As romantic as ending the 3 decade old WS drought in KC would be, I'd rather them just win it all tonight. The media likes "stories" and whatnot well, how about "Grieving pitcher leads long-suffering franchise to First World Series Win Since 1985?" Sounds good to me!

I'm mostly sure that almost-hit pitch had to have been an accident though. Mostly sure.
As I'm not a baseball person to begin with, I don't know how deep various player-versus-player rivalries are (that Utley slide thing was universally and objectively despicable though).

What a glorious day for Marsh. I'm so happy for the Royals. This was a great playoffs because I would've been happy to see any of the final 4 win it. That being said, the Royals deserve it after all of the futility they've been through. Let's hear it for the small teams!
