Usually, when teams are hatable enough, the end of the Dodger season is the end of my baseball watching. Since the Giants and Cardinals can’t hurt us anymore, maybe I’ll keep watching.
1. Toronto Blue Jays
2. Chicago Cubs
3. Kansas City Royals
4. New York Mets.
Overall, the Blue Jays winning the World Series would be my favorite story. They went all out and won. Kawasaki would have the best post-series interview ever and probably be hungover for a week after. Marco Estrada and Tulowitzki went to my college. Keep bat-flipping Joey Bats. Win MVP Donaldson. Win WS MVP Price, and then come to the Dodgers.
Cubs, you guys were close. But unlike the Blue Jays, the Cubs are going to be a force to be reckoned with for a long time. #TheyAreGood
Royals, it’s not you, it’s your fanbase. Stop stuffing the All-Star Ballots, and maybe you’ll be more likable. Also stop head hunting, Yordano.
Mets, sorry, but I really don’t want to live with the “win for Ruben” narrative for the whole offseason. Zack Greinke has way better hair than Jacob deGrom. Sorry, Bartolo and Uribe.
