This is a tough one for me.  A huge mets fan here,  but can't stand the yankee's. I pick the  Yankee's in 6, but hope the phillies kick their ass.

I am so rooting for the Phillies.
Not because I'm a fan, but because I HATE the Yankees.

....actually I don't really hate the Yankees.
I hate their fans, because they are the most arrogant fans on the face of the earth.

Rather sweeping statement there, Mr. J.  :-(

I'll be cheering for the home team as always. Unfortunately, I think game one is going to be rained out.

Italian soccer fans are worse.  Nothing beats them.  Well, perhaps their boring, defensive style of play does...

This is going to be an epic battle in the WS. It's the first time in years that the two best teams in baseball are meeting in the Series. Both teams are so evenly matched is could go seven games. I'm taking Phils in six baby!

New Yorkers pretty much have the most arrogant fanbase, regardless of the team.
However, past success has an influence on the level of arrogance.

Of course, not every single sports fan from NY is an arrogant douche.
However, a lot has to be said about the NY sports press when they have degrading headlines against the rival team.
Like this one from the NY Post:

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/the_frillies_are_coming_to_town_mnrbqD4sqsEKH10TfB3k6H

I remember back in 2001, Newsday a Long Island newspaper had a front page graphic of a Giants helmet crushing a Raven, before the NY Giants were going to play the Baltimore Ravens for the Super Bowl. The Giants got their asses kicked 34–7.

I love baseball, am pulling for the Phillies......but thanks to FOX for the past ten+ years, and their annoying close ups, split screens,  ten different camera shots between pitches, ......I can only bear about five minutes every half hour.

I had to replace a TV back when Arizona beat NY, because after a hundred close-ups, Randy Johnson's face broke my screen.

Joe Buck and Tim McCarver reak as announcers as well. 

(A runner on first for Philly, basehit to rightfield )
McCarver:  "Great play by the RF.  If he doesn't charge that ball, the runner moves on to 3rd."
Buck:  "Good point, Tim."

wtf?!?!!?  Is he supposed to stand there, go down on one knee, and under hand it to 2nd base?

Actually, if you charge a powerfully hit ball, it can end up bouncing over your head.  Most people watching have actually NEVER played the game of baseball.  I think Joe Buck is great.

Can't defend McCarver though, so let's just throw him under the bus.  You gotta admit, Buck and Aikman call a great football game.

And game 3. And game 4.

We're happy here in NY. Most of us, anyway. :-/

Thanks, Mike.  You're repeating yourself.  I, too, said Yanks in 6 right before you did... the first time.

Well tonight is game six. I think the Phillies can win this. If the bats say hot like in game 5 & Howard can find his swing we will be in great shape. Pedro has full rest & you know he is pumped up for this one. Just like game two. He pitched great! Although, you can pitch an amazing game but if your team only scores 1 run it really doesn't matter. Pettet is pitching on three days rest. That will play into the Phillies favor. Just win tonight!!! What happens in game seven (should the be one), happens. If the Phils lose in game seven I'm OK w/ that.  Of course I want them to win but I won't  be devistated if they don't.
As for McCarver & Buck, they are head & shoulders above the amatures that TBS had on during the first two rounds of the playoffs. At least McCarver isn't pluging his CD anymore!

LET GO PHILLIES!!!!!!!
