Default Red Sox Yankees, White Sox etc.

We certainly know where some of us stand. For the rest of you, come out of the woodwork and name your team (let's keep this one to Baseball).
Papa was born in the Bronx and raised in the lower level of Yankee Stadium. Sorry folks, I am a 50+ year fan of the NY Yankees. My blood has blue pinstripes.

Well, I think we all know where my heart belongs. Born and bred in the Boston area. Been a Red Sox fan for as far back of my 47 years that I can remember.

I am from Atlanta, so you know where my heart is. I was a fan, years ago when there were only a few of us.

My favorite teams are the Phillies and whoever is playing the Yankees. I consider the Yankees the poster child of all that is wrong with baseball. There are no limits to the amount of money that an out of control owner can spend to acquire and keep players. As a result of no salary cap the gap between the haves and have-nots in baseball widens. It tickles me pink that the grossly overpaid evil empire barely made it into the playoffs. Go ANGELS!!!![/size]

I am 57 years old and grew up playing baseball virtually every afternoon including Little League and beyond.
As a youngster there was one baseball game on TV every Saturday and more often than not it was the Yankees. I idolized Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Moose Skowron, Whitey Ford, Elston Howard, etc. etc. I can still see in my mind the broadcasts of Dizzy Dean and Pee Wee Reese.
Always have been a Yankee fan.

Yeah, I thought not!

I just got off the phone with my contact at the Psychotic Friends Network and the prediction for the World Series Match up is:

St. Louis and the winner of the New York/Anaheim series.

I'm heading to Vegas and making some St. Louis - New York and St. Louis - Anaheim bets.

Sorry Boston fans but Bugsy at the network didn't see it in his crystal ball.

Take care,
Mike

My dad first took me to Fenway in 1940 for a Red Sox-Yankees double-header. Williams, Doerr, Pesky, Dom DiMaggio against brother Joe and the rest of those $%^#% Yankees. They split the twin-bill. I've been a diehard Red Sox fan ever since. One of my daughters and her family are visiting us from Rhode Island as I write. She's a Sox fan and her dh (designated hubby) is a rabid Yankee-lover. My home has turned into a battleground (TG they fly home tomorrow).

On the serious side:

No one can argue that the White Sox had a fantastic season but they peaked early and they were not playing well at the end of the season. Cleveland almost caught them in the end and the Twins almost swept them in the second to last series, so I think their chances are slim against Boston. However both Boston and and New York have pitching problems and I think Boston's is worse.

I personally feel that Anaheim is the strongest team out there this year in the American League. They will be the ones who end up winning the ALCS and St. Louis has a good chance with the NLCS. But my heart is with San Diego to be like the '87 Twins and peak at the right time and take it all.

Take care,
Mike

Default Red Sox Yankees, White Sox, etc.

Red Sox all the way, but after last night in Chicago...would rather forget that. Last year's pennant would be hard to duplicate. So exciting. My grandfather was the biggest fan of Ted Williams and all the players of that era. At 92 he could listen to one game on the radio and watch another on tv and fill you in on everything. Kimmee girl: he was that great Liverpool stock. How thrilled he would have been knowing the Red Sox won the World Series, tho he often referred to them as "the bloody #%! Red Sox!

Having been born and raised in Chicago, I usually root for the Cubs BUT if not the Cubs then it would have to be the White Sox who haven't been in the World Series since 1917 (or there abouts). And guess what - they've moved up ... hurray for the WHITE SOX!!! They've had a terrific year so far and I sure am hoping they'll go all the way!

I am not much of a sports fan at all. I wasborn and grew up in the Boston area so I would have to say Red Sox.
