Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Meh... as much as I don't like the Yankees-lite, guess I'll have to pull for the Red Sox on this one. I just don't want the more vocal members of my family from St. Louis to be rubbing yet another WS win in my nose.

Not to mention I had tickets if the Dodgers had gone... how inconsiderate of the Cardinals to deny me those!

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Ugh... a team I hate vs. a team I couldn't care less about. Since I'm a National League guy, I'll root for the Cards, but it really won't affect me either way.

World Series, baby!

Should be a great matchup, and it's nice that it actually worked out this year and the top two teams in baseball managed to make it to the end. Should be a strong series...
Congrats Red Sox fan!!

Like I said, I'll be rooting for them
You are named "Yanks" but rooting for the Red Sox?

Giving the benefit of the doubt, I've heard the term is occasionally used outside of the baseball world.

Like I said earlier, more rooting for the AL.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I have only ever cheered for the Red Sox once in my life. That was when I first got into baseball, back in '07. I was pissed at the Indians for beating the Yankees in the ALDS and I felt that I couldn't turn around and, in the ALCS, root FOR a team that I had just been rooting against.

I didn't realize the true extent of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry back then (I hardly knew there WAS one, in fact). I won't make the same mistake twice.

(Note that even though I hate the Red Sox, I like Boston itself very much and I love Fenway Park.)

I harbor no ill will to a franchise that is in someway responsible for our 29 WORLD Championships

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Let me be clear, I hate the Red Sox but not their fans... when I visited Boston a few years ago (in full Yankee gear), Red Sox fans were very nice to me the whole time. Can't fault them for that. They're like the anti-Philadelphia.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Wow Jim Leyland resigned/retired from the Tigers. That's too bad, I was hoping he'd be able to take them all the way next year. I remember when the Rockies had him and he was just so beaten down, he just slept in a conference room at Coors Field and bailed on the team the first minute he could.

Great manager!

I remember when he managed the Pirates.

Nice to see him step down on his terms.

The game will miss him.

Even with his pronounced resemblance to Scorpius from Farscape, I liked Leyland. I was impressed by how he turned the Tigers around. Too bad he'll never have a World Series ring.

He won one in 1997 with the Marlins.
