    My Cubs were out a month ago, so my baseball watching desire is about done for the year. Is anyone else calling it a season and moving onto better things?
    As much as I hate to say it, my picks are Cards vs. Yanks. What's yours?

    I always try an watch some of the games. I haven't watched a full series since my White Sox won it.

    Phillies/Angels is my guess. If the Twins pull it out and go instead of Detroit, Yankees/Phillies. Yankees won't be able to beat both the Tigers and Angels so hopefully Boston would knock the Angels out if the Yankees got by the Tigers.

    I'll probably watch regardless just because it's something other than doing homework.

    If the Cards are in I will watch every game. If not, I will only be interested to see who wins when it's all over.

    My interest in baseball drops drastically as soon as football season starts.

    Probably depends on who it is, what night, what's up against it on tv or other activities.

    World Series has never been "must see" tv for me like the Superbowl.

    But it's one of those events that I'll have a tv on and kinda have it in the background if I'm doing something else - not really paying complete attention.

    Of course I'll watch at least a couple games regardless who makes it.. my teams are long since out of the race. Probably won't make a point of watching each and every game but if I am in front of the TV it will be on.

    What else am I going to watch, some reality show?

    Watch? Attend, Hell Yeah! Go Rockies!!!

    It should be noted that since the start of June, they have played the best baseball in the National League.

    I'll be watching even though my Royals won't be playing in it. Oh well, beats being a Cubs fan.

    If the Twins are in it I will watch. Maybe if the Angels are in it too, to watch Hunter. I might watch if the Phillies are in it because I like them as my National League team.......but even if they are in it not sure I could watch if the Yankees or Red Sox are there.

    There are several teams I enjoy rooting against so that helps. I'll watch anyway as I love the game. In the meantime the Orioles have posted their 12th losing season in a row...

    It's the curse of Brady Anderson and his possible PED'd biceps.

    I like baseball, so I'll be watching regardless of who's playing. And why does being a Royals fan beat being a Cubs fan. At least the Cubs wait til mid-season to die.

    If it turns out to be Tigers-Rockies or something like that, I might bury my head in the sand.

    I'll watch it for sure. I don't see anyone out of the NL stopping the Cardinals and the AL is up for grabs. I could foresee another epic ALCS Yankees/Red Sox match up, but I hope the Tigers or whoever comes out of the central stuns the Yankees like Cleveland 2 years ago. Bring on the bugs!!!
