Rooting interest

I have to have a rooting interest in every round of the baseball playoffs, now that the Mets went 5 of their last 17 to join the 1964 Phillies, ironically, as team providing one of the most mortifying collapses in baseball.

Cubs – because they’re the Cubs
Padres – because my sister lives there
Yankees – because they are a NY team
Phillies – because they deserved to get to the playoffs
Red Sox – 1 WS in 90 years isn’t exactly a dynasty
Angels – possibly the best team
Rockies – mostly because I know little about them except that their stadium (and altitude) produces good hitting
Indians – mostly because, when I went to Cleveland in 1998, I couldn’t get in
Diamondbacks – they play in the desert.
