I saw the Angels play the Rangers in Anaheim. The stadium is awesome and to make things better we sat behind a girl that rivals Walsh's avatar, she didn't bounce though.

I have been to 6-7 parks... and Anaheim is the best I've been too... funny it NEVER gets mention as one of the better ones... and as far as the ladies... welcome to Orange County... something about MASSIVE amounts of money tends to equal good looks... I should write a book on that little theory

i've been an orioles fan my whole life, but i used to support the montreal expos because they were so close to me. i guess that was my national league team. i miss them. the big O wasn't the greatest ballpark...it sucked actually, but it was sweet sitting close to the field because of the ticket prices.

oriole park at camden yards in baltimore is a great park. i've been to that one more than any other one and i think it's sweeter every time i go there.

DP and Oberman were talking about the Expos today... I always thought it was so sad how BOTH teams north of the border got reemed by the 94 strike... The spos were one of the leagues biggest success stories for a couple of decades... then came the strike...

I've always been a big Twins fan. Was lucky enough to be at game 7 in 1987 when they beat the Cardinals. Too bad they won't have Liriano around next year.

Yeah its a shame about Liriano, he was becoming 1 of the best starters in baseball. Atleast they still have Santana.

Whoever wins the last game...just so it's over. Yeah, I'm a communist who doesn't like baseball. I wish I did. If I did, I'd like anyone that beat the Red Sox. Their fans seem to be more annoying than anyone elses, including the Yankees.

Damn you NDAlumSon you're the Devil. If Manny stays which I think he will the Sox lineup will be a good one. One thing I don't understand is that they sign Drew to that huge deal but wouldn't give Damon more money or the extra year. Was wondering your thoughts about that.

That's me: :devil_2:

As far as Damon, it all came down to that extra year. He would have netted more $$ from Boston but wanted one more year on the offer. Our loss, Yankees gain.
As far as Manny (Idiot Savant) Ramirez, we couldn't get fair value at the winter meetings just concluded, so it looks like he's staying.
For my money, the BEST right handed hitter in all of baseball.
Just a pain in the ass teammate ala T.O.

Was also a big Expos fan...and agree that the 'O' was a terrible stadium. However, the atmosphere was actually pretty good there when the team was drawing well (unfortunately the fairweather fans meant crowds of 5K when the team was not contending); nothing like the noise level picking-up, and having those huge concrete slabs start shaking.

Guess you were from upstate??

That strike broke my heart, and absolutely KILLED the Expos. I think that was the final act that finally doomed the franchise. It is also why I always look at the Braves NL East run with a huge ***asterisk***, 'cause the Spos had them buried in '94.

Now I cheer for two teams:

Anaheim....'cause of Vlad

Washington....for legacy reasons

People that don't care about baseball tend to be Red Sox fans.

They're so accustomed to mediocrity.
