Americans thirst for MLB-playoff drama

AP , NEW YORK

Cubs reliever Mark Guthrie hopes so. He once pitched for Boston, so he understands the lure of a World Series between the clubs.

"Yeah, I've thought about it. I think there's a pretty good chance it could happen. It's not as far-fetched as it was in the past. Both teams are playing well. That would be something," he said.

Naturally, Guthrie has a rooting interest -- and what he believes is a good reason.

"I think we're more lovable than the Red Sox. They haven't won it in a while, but they've been in the playoffs a lot more than we have. The history of losing is not the same."
