I don't know if they're fighting against all odds. They were great all year, and even with recent injuries, still have a great offense and seem to have a great bullpen.
I could see any of the remaining teams winning the WS, except for the Nationals.
I'm similar. I try to eat before or after.
$14 beers for domestic were normal at Shoreline Amphitheater in 2008.
They were a little cheaper at MLB games then, but now it's almost the same, $13 or $14 also.
