My Ranks  

So, who am I rooting for?  Well it would probably have been Pittsburgh, all outta love for Burnett.  And sausage.  But factoring in eliminations, here’s my order of preference.  No Beckett/Mike Lowell/Kevin Millar level Red Sox love out there, so Marlin presence having little impact on my rankings.

  1. Rangers- I know a guy in their farm system.
  2. Cubs- Torn.  Have family in Chicago, but also feel like the Cubs ineptitude is just part of the order of the universe.   And I want to tell my kids the billy-goat story.
  3. Astros- Just a good story.
  4. Cardinals- Nothing against them.
  5. Royals- Nothing against them except ballot stuffing fans that were voting for Nori Aoki over Giancarlo Stanton this year.  Plus they were so close last year, and I did always like Infante.
  6. Dodgers- Marlin presence gives Dodgers the nod over the rest of the field.
  7. Blue Jays- Fun city.  Who doesn’t love poutine?
  8. Mets- Obviously last.  Something to be said for losing your division to the World Champ though.
