    Yeah we rolled in 2016 up until the WS. The Indians had me sweating though when they went up 3-1. Once the Cubs got it to 3-3, I felt great about Game 7 though. Cubs just had the better team and in a 1 game situation the better team wins 9 out of 10 times. When the better team loses the other team has to play perfect in a 1 game situation and get all the big breaks. It doesn't even appear that Boston fans even have to sweat at all with this one LOL. This may be a sweep?

     

    Oops nevermind, I had forgotten the Cubs had to come back from 3-1 to win it. It was sort of a reverse to me at the time with the Cavs getting the 3-1 comeback vs. the Warriors and the Indians blowing the 3-1 lead. Kinda odd.

     

    Yeah that was a crazy World Series with Cubs/Indians. I had honestly forgotten. I remember some sort of rain delay in game 7 and everything. And I remember the Cubs being a good pitching team but not as good with scoring?

     

    No I don't think Sox fans really feel the heat on this one right now since the Yankees/Astros were more intense.

     

    IMO the Sox took off when they got that 16-1 win over NY.....

    Yeah they do. They just Hit really well, whether it be just Singles or the HR. They make really good contact as a whole team. I have to admit this is over, I would be stunned if Boston blew a 2-0 lead. 

     

    Maybe they slip up in LA a bit? (it's a long trip)

     

    But I don't feel this Dodgers team is in the same realm as the Red Sox at all. I doubt they can win at Fenway.

     

    I think in baseball at times it's just often someone's year.......and it's often blatant when it happens lol. Red Sox had that win craziness all season and it just feels like it's their time but that doesn't mean they repeat at all.

     

    I am sure when the Cubs did it you felt it coming in a way too.

    I have to admit I haven't seen an Offense all decade long like these Red Sox have. I think the 2016 Cubs had better Pitching with Lester, Jake, and Hendricks + Chapman but the Red Sox Offense seems to score when they want and need too. It's almost comical. 

     

    I am no baseball expert lol, but it seems the Red Sox find ways to score no matter what even if it looks ugly for a while.

  4. It was over before it started, not to sound snobby. No matter what happens in LA I can't see the Red Sox blowing this.

     

    I went to Fenway last night with my husband for game 1. We almost froze to death  but I never seen a team I felt this destined to win it all in a long time.

     

    Fenway is great btw but man SOOOOO old lmao. And the fans, whoa........they go nuts.

     

    That was my first time there.

    @Jules congrats on the Red Sox winning the AL Pennant. They beat a great team in the Astros. This Red Sox team looks every bit as great as the Cubs looked in 2016. It's their WS to lose IMO with HFA.

     

    Thanks. This has been pretty exciting. My other half is just on cloud nine and thinks I am bringing good luck since we got married in May. lmao 

     

    Honestly kinda amazing too, never thought I would be a baseball fan but this was fascinating. Sox lost game 1 and then ripped off FOUR in a row vs. a great Astros team including even Price getting a win. 

     

    I said after the Yankees series I got the tingles. And after game 4.......can't tell me this isn't a sign it's your year.

     

     

    Just amazing.

     

    But really this Red Sox team had it all season. IMO they deserve it.

    Husband agrees with you, he thinks the Lakers can be A LOT better then I think. So I am being outnumbered here. Lakers might be good. That was actually our conversation this morning too during breakfast, Lakers analysis...... lmao 

     

    The thing is with Boston fans they hate the Lakers as much as they hate the Yankees. Okay maybe not as much, Yankees top everything. But Celtics/Lakers is a historical rivalry too.

     

     

    Oh and yeah Jimmy Butler went ape butt nuts at practice yesterday. Y'all don't want him.

    I am pretty high on the Lakers. Kuzma and Ingram both look legit now. LeBron is still LeBron. To me they could definitely get the 3rd Seed. Jazz and Thunder are Good but aren't anything special. The Raptors to me are a huge question mark, nobody knows how good Leonard will be? Yeah I think in the end the Warriors will get 1 more. After that we may start seeing the Celtics/Lakers again in the Finals if the Lakers land 1 more SuperStar next summer in Free Agency. Pacers will be good but not sure how far they will go?

     

    I wish I was as high on you with the Lakers. lmao I just sometimes scratch my head Lebron went there unless it was for better weather and to make the family happy. It's a strange strange group there. I admit Ingram and Kuzma are good though.

     

    My feelings on the Warriors is this and I will talk about it with you later in June if it happens.

     

    IF we do get Warriors/Celtics.....and if the series goes 6/7. I am taking Boston to steal it. And then Durant I could even see joining up with Lebron since those two are close. I swear, I got this strange vision in my head of Durant on the Lakers that I keep thinking about. I literally can't get it out of my head that Kevin Durant is headed to the Lakers next year.

     

    Raptors scare me but who the hell is their new coach anyway. Nick Nurse? Okay.......

     

     

    I got to get to bed but I leave you all with this if you miss Lance. lmao

    Basketball season is upon us so here is what I think will happen in the 2019 Season. 

    -My Top 4 Seeds in the Eastern Conference will be:

    1. Celtics (my projected record = 60-22)

     

    2. Raptors (my projected record = 56-26), if Leonard stays healthy they will probably finish 2nd in the Conference. If he doesn't then they are screwed.

     

    3. Sixers (my projected record = 54-28)

     

    4. Pacers (my projected record = 51-31), I see us finishing 4th and winning 1 Playoff series but if Leonard can't stay healthy we may finish 3rd and stay out of the Celtics bracket. That would wreck the Raptors season. If that happens we could make the ECFinals. Sixers are young and could choke in the Playoffs.

    -I have the Celtics winning the Eastern Conference

     

    -My Top 4 Seeds in the Western Conference will be:

    1. Warriors (my projected record = 61-21)

     

    2. Rockets (my projected record = 58-24)

     

    3. Lakers (my projected record = 52-30)

     

    4. Jazz (my projected record = 51-31)

     

    4T with the Jazz. Thunder (my projected record = 51-31)

    -I have the Warriors winning the Western Conference

     

    -I have the Warriors 3-Peating and winning the World Championship over the Celtics in 7 games (4-3)

     

    My Top 5 players of all-time still remain:

    1. Michael Jordan

    2. Magic Johnson

    3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    4. LeBron is now 4th on my list after last season

    5. Wilt Chamberlain

     

    DAMN, you got those Lakers doing better then I thought. I am truly not that high on that team around Lebron right now, but I think Lebron will as usual make them all better and go on a big MVP run. I just got to see more of the Lakers with Lebron to believe it? I can't doubt Lebron though.

     

    Pacers might be able to move up in standings but it's tough to say? The east is so confusing!!!!! It's going to be a blast though with Lebron finally gone. lmao I think it will be a tough postseason, more teams will believe now.

     

    I will say this about Boston, Brad Stevens has literally lit up the Celtics in the last few weeks due to lousy showings in preseason and telling them they aren't as good as they think they are. And Marcus Smart and JR Smith almost killed each other in preseason. Most of this was not directed at Irving since he rested the final two preseason games and Hayward didn't play the last one either.

     

    I am going to Celtics/Sixers next week and I am still nervous over Gordon Hayward. He still is not completely there yet. He admits his mind is not there yet, so much to get comfortable with. He has not found his shot yet.

     

    Gordon is going to make me nervous for a while I think.......

     

    Kyrie though, Kyrie looks AMAZING.:mindblow: I mean that infection he had in his knee must have been serious since he even looks healthier in his face. He's got the mini fro going on now and committed long term to the Celtics recently in public, so he seems to be more mature this year and happier. I am expecting a big big year from Irving, just worried about Gordon...but it might take longer there. I am also worried about a sophomore slump for Jayson Tatum.

     

     

    Believe it or not, my husband has a Celtics friend who has the Pacers finishing second in the east.

     

    Raptors though will be fascinating since Kawhi Leonard if he gives a crap and tries hard is an absolute beast. Problem is, I still can't always trust Toronto. But I won't be suprised if the Celtics lose in Toronto next week in game 2. I think Boston wins over Philly. 

    Kawhi Leonard though, he could be a potential problem....we'll see. Weird weird dude though.

     

    Philly remains to be seen too since Ben Simmons still can't shoot well. Will be interesting if Boston uses the same game postseason plan vs. them and tosses Baynes on Embiid and Smart on Simmons.

     

     

    As for the Warriors, they are golden as usual and perfect. But will FA distractions hit them? Durant has not committed.....I think Klay said he wants to stay.

    I bet in the 9th Inning he was going nuts haha , I have been there before lmao . Nice win, congrats. By the way I posted on the Basketball Thread and gave my predictions. I have Boston going to the Finals.

     

    Astros are going to be brutal though, this series feels almost like the real World Series to me. I will go look at your NBA picks.

    Yeah right now Yankees fans have that unsettling feeling in their stomach that their season is about over. :funny:

     

    Thank God, anything after this is gravy now. For the sanity of my husband this had to happen. Now he can sleep better for the rest of the week. The Red Sox/Yankees rivarly is HUGE. Like enormous. This HAD to happen.

     

    I am starting to get positive tingles concerning the Red Sox though.....

    Jules, I see why your husband worries because in Baseball a lot of times the team with the best record doesn't win it all. You need a lot of breaks to win a WS. 

     

    Yep that and the Red Sox also have a pretty good history of plenty of gag jobs.

     

    Maybe this year is different though? Time will tell and soon!

     

    I can safely say for most Red Sox fans the #1 goal is not to lose to the Yankees.

    Red Sox are fine, they have by far the best record in the league. My Cubs are on fire right now in the NL, I think the Cubs can win their 2nd WS in 3 years if they keep playing the way they have. Red Sox, Astros, and Yankees are all loaded with talent in the AL though. A's are even Very Good.

     

    Yeah the Red Sox are still in it and all. It's a slump. But history isn't kind. lmao So.....

     

    Good luck to the Cubs. I really am not hard into baseball but I just want everyone to be happy. Men and baseball can be crazy. lmao

  13. Huge win for the Dodgers, now it is going back to L.A. regardless of the next game. 

     

    In a nutty way this series sort of reminds me of the Lakers/Celtics finals in 2009 that went 7 games and the Lakers had to win 6 and 7 in L.A. Of course this only compares to the current world series if the Astros win game 5.

     

    And I am being loopy since I am just trying to find a comparison to an L.A. team and all........:headspin:
