Hey, we all have our moments. And I realize when your team or teams lose, it can sting. Sometimes taking the high road ain't easy. This forum is supposed to be fun and sometimes it's not. If somebody gives you shit, you gotta give it back to them when you can, but there's a certain way to go about it. I've had my balls busted plenty of times, but I pick my spots to bust balls too. I used to despise the BoSox, but I never shit on their fans in this forum. When the BoSox won those World Series, I had to give them their props.

If the Mets do win it all, you can trust that I will give them their props in here. I still have my doubts that they will be able to sustain this success into next year with some hard choices to make to make in the offseason, but that's for next year.

As much as Headache has pissed me off in this thread, at least he didn't call all Nats fans ignorant. bobsaget is a keeper.

I'm sure the Cubs are fine with avoiding Kershaw and Greinke.

That playoff experience sure didn't help the Cardinals. This is the first time they're missing the NLCS in like what, 4 years? Cubs just beat the best record in baseball and only needed 4 games to do it.

As for rotation, Arietta gets to pitch twice. Assuming his last game was a fluke, the Mets have no one anywhere near that good. And Lester is no slouch, either. Plus the bullpen has been performing better than expected.

Two great pitchers can steal a division series for a team and Lester/Arrieta were able to do that for the Cubs. Once it opens up to 7 games, depth really starts to matter. deGrom/Syndergaard/Harvey is a nasty trio that the Mets can hang their hats on. I think Arrieta is arguably pitching the league's best baseball, but he can't go every night.

That said, there is undoubtedly more offensive talent in the Cubs' lineup. It's not even close. The Mets went from an embarrassment to a real threat after the trade deadline, but the consistency isn't there the same way that it is for the Cubs. The Mets can rattle off 12 runs in one game and hit three singles over the next two. The Cubs always have someone that can threaten to score.

It's going to be a close series for sure.

I didn't get to watch game 5 of Jays/Rangers live, so I've only just now seen the Bautista bat flip.

Truly, that was a thing of beauty. Pitcher threw a meatball, he crushed it and effectively sealed the game. The flip was well earned. The people getting worked up over it need to move on to watching chess or something. They would probably write an angry letter to the network if they ever watched a football game.

On the other hand, there's Yasiel Puig, who would bat flip over a GIDP:

In October, to quote the esteemed Happy Gilmore, "the Price is wrong, bitch".

Dude so much as admitted a couple days ago that the pressure gets to him. Gibbons intentionally used him out of the pen in game 4 of the ALDS so he could safely skip him for game 5. I wouldn't give him 200Mil this offseason. He's the anti-Schilling.

Uncharacteristically bad move by Maddon leaving Lester in after that hit he gave up in the bottom of the 7th. You pull him, the Mets don't go up 4-1, and Schwarber's homer makes it a 1 run game. Considering how the Cubs offense is performing, it's a lot to ask them to get more runs.
