    There must be here some baseball fans that exceed my ardor.

    Presently, Kansas City MO has an edge over Brooklyn NY by 3 games to 1. How things got to this point may be worth discussing. What I'd really like to know is how many times such a lead has failed to capture the trophy over 110 years? That information seems hard for me to find.

    Not many weeks ago I was in Toronto and looking for them to go big. KC Royals set that aside. Personal preference is for 'anybody but a NY team' to win. Both squads seem high on coaching, pitching and hitting talent, else they would not have arrived. The Las Vegas odds (as I read them) do not now strongly favor a Kansas City victory. I hope that some baseball fan could sort this out.

    The NY Metropolitans and Citi Field are in Queens, NY.

    according to mlb.com, it has been done 4 times, the last being 1985 by none other than KC, over the bluejays no less.

    of course, nothing will ever top the red sox comeback in 2004 alcs.(y)

    i'm rooting for KC, but i don't mind if the mets win. i'm over 1986. almost.:cool:

    RRxing makes a good point (in retrospect) that NYC might wish to distance itself from the borough of Queens. Had they not lost, it would have been an NYC team though eh?

    Just making a correction (Queens vs. Brooklyn.)
    Both the Mets (Queens) and Yankees (The Bronx) are New York City teams.
    (For whatever reason, the New York Jets and New York Giants play in New Jersey.) :confused:

    New York City consists of five boroughs (counties):
    Manhattan (New York County)
    Brooklyn (Kings County)
    Staten Island (Richmond County)
    Queens (Queens County)
    The Bronx (Bronx County)

    Brooklyn and Queens are geographically part of Long Island, along with Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

    what a game. i thought for sure the metropolitans were going to take this one. surely some second guessing going on today in the managers office.

    i remember when pedro talked grady little into leaving him in against the yankees in game 7 of the alcs. pedro gave up the tying runs, sending the game into extra innings. and aaron bleeping boone taking tim wakefield deep in the 11th inning. that was the end of his managing career. but i'm not bitter.
