    I can't imagine any game in a long time had better ratings that the Cubs in a close game 7.

    Yea, I was hoping it would be another classic. I'm sure it was good for your nerves as a Cards fan though.

    Well, I certainly thought the 2011 game was better, but the circumstances are what gave 2016 game 7 the edge IMO.

    What made this game so special was the fact that it was game 7 and that one team was about to break a massive tirle drought. I think 10 years from now when people look at the indivudual game itself, there will be several in recent decades that will rank better. Maybe not more significant, but better.

    And here I thought you were just being pessimistic. Really hasn't been a season to remember for the Sox though. Eaton has had one hell of a year though.

    The Playoffs are still mostly a crapshoot. Once they make the playoffs...they will have about a 25%-30% chance of making the WS and about a 13%-15% chance of winning the whole thing.

    No isolated/chosen team is ever 50% or more likely to go to the WS until the LCS starts.

    Is a 25%-30% chance good? Maybe - but the other three LDS participants will have close to the same "good chance."
