Cubs vs. Indians

For (slightly) serious discussion of things involving balls and a lot of effort (that aren't sex!)

Cubs vs. Indians

Postby Forty Two » Mon Oct 24, 2016 10:14 am

Fivethirtyeight.com has the Cubs with a 61% chance of winning the World Series -- http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/201 ... id=rrpromo

In the US, the baseball World Series involves the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians.

The Cubs have made it to the World Series this year for the first time in 71 years. They have not won a world series competition in 108 years, as they last defeated Ty Cobb's Detroit Tigers in 1908.

Average re-sale ticket price for games in Cleveland - $3900. Average re-sale ticket price for games at Wrigley Field in Chicago - $5,000. Game 7, if one occurs, estimated at $7,200.

I've summoned the Bias Response Team to attend to this young lady. Fortunately for her, the feminists are sending a team in response to the Bias Response Team to educate them on how not to tell women what to wear. Soooo...... Cat Fight!!!!!! :what?:

Will the baby bears defeat the cultural appropriators?

I guess Cleveland. The celebratory gunfire must be less than chicgao.
A rational skeptic should be able to discuss and debate anything, no matter how much they may personally disagree with that point of view. Discussing a subject is not agreeing with it, but understanding it.

Indians defeated Cubbies 6 -0 last night. That's one game won, in the "best of seven" series.

You heathens don't understand how big a deal this is. It makes your soccer world cup look like a tiddlywinks game.

Look, just because you folks don't like baseball, doesn't mean plenty of nationalities don't enjoy it. It''s not just the US. Canada likes baseball, and they have a team in American Major League Baseball (they used to have 2, but Montreal moved to Washington DC). The Japanese have their own league, and baseball is their most popular sport. They love it. The Cubans love baseball as do the Dominicans and some other countries in central America and the Caribbean. Mainland China and Taiwan each play professional baseball. South Korea likes baseball, and they have a professional league. Mexico has a league, Venezuela, Colombia, etc. They don't, of course, count to some folks though.... not real countries, though....not part of the world.

Maybe if I point out that the vaunted Netherlands, with people far superior in intelligence, education, manners, civility and all other areas, likes baseball to some extent, too.... Here's an article from the New York Times, which says that soccer is king in the Netherlands, but baseball is becoming more popular there. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/21/world ... .html?_r=0 At a minimum, we can credit the Dutch with having the ability to appreciate a sport other than soccer, and to have the capacity to not scoff, every time the sport of baseball is brought up in conversation, about how it's not played much in fucking Europe. At least they can appreciate the sport.

Soccer is a great sport. Baseball is a different sport and is great in its own way. They aren't played the same, and not everyone is going to enjoy one or the other. Some people, like me, enjoy them both.
