So: there go the Dodgers. And the Yankees are completely unbeatable right now, so it looks like we're stuck with two teams I don't give a damn about playing each other in the World Series. The baseball purist in me thinks that's perfect: the Yanks and the Phils appear to actually be the two best teams in baseball, which who you'd theoretically like to see play for the championship. The baseball fan in me, on the other hand, wants to root for somebody. And who could that possibly be?

And thus: the Official jwalkernet Baseball Rooting Matrix. A Rock-Paper-Scissors-esque ranking of every team in baseball. Of course, it's not exactly like RPS -- there is one unbeatable team. But it's close enough for our purposes.

Each team, obviously, has my support against every team beneath it...except the last team, who can all die in a fire. I wonder who that will be.
  1. Astros
  2. Red Sox
  3. Dodgers
  4. Mariners
  5. Twins
  6. Rays
  7. Rockies
  8. Diamondbacks
  9. Orioles
  10. Marlins
  11. Brewers
  12. Angels
  13. Athletics
  14. Royals
  15. Blue Jays
  16. Rangers
  17. Pirates
  18. Tigers
  19. Indians
  20. Padres
  21. Reds
  22. Cubs
  23. Nationals
  24. Phillies
  25. White Sox
  26. Mets
  27. Giants
  28. Cardinals
  29. Braves
  30. Yankees
So: go Phillies. I guess.
