So here we are, the first week of October, at least 30 games under .500 and guaranteed to finish 20 games out of first place in the – ugh – AL Central. To us old timers this feels very familiar.
But now the play-offs are upon us and we need to ask the question: who are you rooting for to win it all? Lots of ex-Indians out there to provide a modicum of rooting interest for Tribe fans: CC on the Yankees, Manny, Casey, Thome, and Ronnie on the Dodgers, Pavano with the Twins, Vic with the BoSox, Cliff and BenFran with the Phillies (and Victorino too!), DeRosa and Ludwick (OK that’s a stretch) with the Cards, Maicer Izturis – another stretch – with the Angels, Raffie B– along with Dan O’Dowd - with the Rockies, so there’s plenty of reasons to root for one team or another. Or root against ‘em for that matter.
So here’s what I wanna know: who you pullin’ for and why?
