    Who's Your Adopted Playoff Team?

    The playoffs are upon us yet again. It's a fun time of year for baseball fans. Of course, it would be much more fun with the Reds being involved, but that is obviously not the case.

    So the question is this: Who is your adopted playoff team?

    Who will you follow and root for over the next month?

    My vote (and I'm sure many will feel the same way) goes to the White Sox. I want so badly for Junior to get the ring that he so greatly deserves. This may very well be his last chance to get it.

    So, who will you be rooting for?

    Jr. and the Sox.

    Although I won't be upset if Torre wins with LA to stick it to the Steinbrenners.

    Ditto

    Seeing Jr. advance to the playoffs is the best feeling I have had this late in a baseball season in quite some time!!

    Re: Who's Your Adopted Playoff Team?

    I feel like it *should* be the Rays (how can anyone root against them?), but I have a soft spot for the White Sox that is only getting softer with Griffey on the team. Love Konerko, love Thome, love Jenks, love love love Mark Buehrle. And let's not forget my favorite player in baseball, Javier Vazquez.

    And I'll probably get weepy when I see Torre managing the Dodgers too.

    Can you add an option for "anybody but the Cubs"?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    No kidding.

    It's the White Sox for me too, thanks to Griffey. Although part of me wants to see Ozzie Guillen suffer. Is that wrong?

    No one remembers him making the choking sign at the Indians in 2005? He deserves to have it thrown back at him, not that anyone else would actually do it.

    He argued immediately that he was communicating with a fan about something specific (I forget what it was, but it sounded plausible). I'll be the first to grill Guillen for his many offensive gaffes, but I don't believe that was one of them. One thing to be said about that guy is that you pretty much see what you get, and he usually owns up to his offenses.

    Amen.

    I'd say the White Sox just cause of Jr. then the Rays.

    That would get my vote. I swear, if the Cubs win the World Series I might never follow baseball again for as long as I live. Next to a Reds World Series, the Cubs NOT winning a World Series is what I wish for most.

    #1- Anyone but the Cubs!!
    #2- Sean Casey and the Red Sox! I know, I know, the Red Sox won it last year, but I really want Casey to get a ring. Plus, Boston is my ex's team, and he and I are still really good friends (the man flew me to Singapore, for crying out loud!). He'd root for the Reds if his team wasn't in the playoffs.
    #3- Griffey and the White Sox! I really dislike the White Sox, but I would be thrilled to pieces if Griffey finally got a ring!!
    #4- Once again, anyone but the Cubs.

    Re: Who's Your Adopted Playoff Team?

    1st - Who ever is playing the Cubs
    2nd - Philly my home away from home
    3rd - White Sox in a very close race for 2nd because of Jr.
    4th - Dodgers ONLY for the Torre/Yankee's thing
    5th - Tampa
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.
