For the NL:
In this corner, we have the Philadelphia Phillies, winners of the NL East.
Taking on a fiesty group not seen in the playoffs since 1982, the Milwaukee Brewers, winners of the NL Wild card.
On the other side of the NL, we have the Central champs Chicago Cubs, championship-less since 1908:
They take on the West winners, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Let's be honest, if anyone here is supporting either of these teams, you might as well get out.
On the AL side:
The first time division winner and playoff contenders, AL East champs the Tampa Bay Rays:
They take on the mighty Chicago White Sox, the winners of the AL Central:
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Angels, winners of the AL West:
Their foe is the team from the town everyone's grown sick of: the Red Cubs of Boston, 2nd place in the AL East:
Personally I'd pull for the Brewers the most out of these four, I guess. The AL side intrigues me more, and it works like this: White Sox first, and then if they get eliminated the Rays, then Angels, and finally the Red Sox. Honestly I'd rather any of those four win before any of the NL teams beyond the Brew Crew.
So what about you? Have a second favorite team you want to support? Maybe a most hated team you want to watch go down in flames? Or has your mind already switched over to football and basketball seasons?
