My two favorite teams in the playoffs this year seem primed for quick exits. Prove me wrong, Oakland and Colorado.

The Cubs have been good at doing the opposite of what you expect this year. On the other hand, it's the Rockies playing on the road so this feeds right into the Cubs plan to win every game 2-1.

Prediction: Rockies win when Matt Holliday doesn't touch home plate, but there's not enough evidence to overturn it.

Is this the game where there is an alternate broadcast on ESPN2? A more stat centric one?

E: oh mentioned in N/V
E2: vv thanks haha

Gonna watch this game in a bar with a bunch of Rockies fans. I already caught a bunch of poo poo because the Giants couldn't win one goddamn game at home against the Dodgers last weekend But it will all be OK if the Rox win tonight.

Go Rockies, and gently caress the Cubs

These two teams seem so similar to me. They both run hot or cold on offense and pitching.

It's cooler for the Rockies to win, but the Cubs are the more exciting team, imo.
