I know what I'm watching when the game ends. Thanks!

You can't continue to have this number of runners left on in a coin flip game and win, right? Have to feel like this a game the Cubs win, but like in the 15th after Colorado notches one. Game 6, 2011 WS redux.

But I'd love to be proven wrong. I enjoy new blood to advance, best for the game of baseball.

I'd root against the Cubs, except the Rockies' owners put the owners of Chick-fil-A to shame when it comes to jesus-freaking. I remember when their 19-game win streak or whatever was attributed to divine favor by Rockies management, without irony. They then ran into the buzzsaw that was the 2007 Red Sox, of course, but I still hope they lose in some humiliating fashion.

I didn't want to be a sexiest jerk and dislike Mendoza, and Arod reminds me of 04, so I don't mind him.

But the announcing crew sucks.
I actually don’t mind Mendoza. She says some dumb stuff here and there but I generally enjoy her analysis.

Boy would you have a field day with Dayton Moore and the Royals....

They are actually all fine imho. But I don't play The Show nor do I care that Mendoza and ARod are hamming it up. As long as I don't have to hear McCarver or Joe Morgan, I am thrilled.

In 2015 I felt more sympathy for Kansas City the town and longtime loyal fanbase than I felt disgust at their management. And they went through a 2003-to-2004-Sox redemption cycle after losing an epic game 7 the previous year. But you do have a point.

California. Duh.
The crowd must be getting close to sober by now. The ones that didn't sneak in a flask, at least.

Rockies have 9 left on base as a team. Only 4 prior postseason road teams have won an extra inning game with that number, while scoring 2 runs or fewer.

They'd join the 1995 Braves (9), 1973 Reds (10), 1950 Yankees (11), 1933 Giants (12).
