I hate it when scrub teams make it to the World Series. Baseball season is over.
I think this sentiment is hilarious. Milwaukee last night played in the most exciting game I've ever seen. The atmosphere at Miller Part is electric. I'm ridiculously happy that NY, Boston, and Philly are out. Their fans tend to be the biggest douchebags around too. You welcome to stop watching until your overpaid, sh*tty when it counts players start again next year. The rest of us are looking forward to some of the most exciting baseball we've seen to date in October.
My Red Sox sucked this year and I called it from the beginning of the season. Just good enough to tease us. I consider scrub teams to be anything other than the teams with the best records from each league. I feel the same way in any sport. Even with my Bruins winning last year, had it been a mediocre team against them, I'd have been less thrilled with them winning.
I know you want to see this as a Yankees, Red Sox, Phillies thing, but I'd feel the same way had Milwaukee been the team with the best record and knocked out in the first round. It has nothing to do with whether my team is in it or not. With the Red Sox out, I was interested in watching Philly, and I don't like them. I think baseball should go back to 2 divisions in each league, because now crappy teams make it in. And as a Red Sox fan, that probably means we almost never make the playoffs.
