I want the Astros to win not because the Dodgers eliminated the Cubs, but rather I like having NL bragging rights for most recent WS win.

Also, Dodger fans are subhuman and do not deserve joy.

I'm not really pulling for either team, but will enjoy watching the series and hope it'll at least be entertaining.

I picked option 3, but really, I'd rather the Astros win...I just won't watch any of the games or spend any energy caring THAT much.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I want the Astros to win because I despise the Dodgers. Doesn't matter that the Cubs lost to the Dodgers.

*unpopular opinion alert*

I don't really hate the Dodgers other than the sting of losing to them. They look like they are having fun and I kind of want to see Kershaw win a title. Also I used to loathe Puig for years but now I think he's kind of fun.

That said I think I'm rooting for the Astros I think. It's amazing how 5 years in another league quickly kills any hate for them. I mean I remember the NL Central Astros and I hate *them* but not this squad.

(Note: if the Cardinals ever went to the NL I would hate them and their stupid faces forever just like the Wings)

Yeah, in terms of being Cubs nemesis, the Dodgers only feel like they're about a 3. Meh.

TT just changed his vote to the Astros after that First Pitch ceremony.

Perhaps the poll should have been who's more likable. Or maybe which team has more guys that you'd want on the Cubs. For me it's Houston on both counts.

I have to say that this is a pretty compelling argument.

horsefeathers, if that's the criteria, then it's the Dodgers all the way for Puig alone.

Everyone apologize to TT since he's right about Vin Scully.

The anthem kneel-down brouhaha narrative has been so twisted beyond recognition. The blatant militarization of our sports leagues sickens me. Enter John Kelly with his open contempt for civilians...."Service guarantees Citizenship," indeed.

Bummer that he can't watch baseball anymore, either.

These chuckleheads are really ruining it for the rest of us who were already cool and smart and handsome enough to do things like not watching football and not eating Papa John's pizza.
