    ha! I was thinking about it while I was taking my walk this morning! As a Marlins fan, I expect to get beat a lot anyway this year!

    But tonight the Houston Astros start on a journey to try to win a World Series with 10 players after failing for 50 years with the standard nine. Not likely to happen this year. I weep for the Houston fans who not only have to root for a team that's probably not going to win a lot of games this year, but now they're also going to be playing American League ball. Stupid Bud Selig and his cronies.

    But it's opening day - new hopes, new dreams, new allegations of PED use.

    As Marvin Gaye so eloquently sang, "Let's get it on!"

    I think Bud and his cronies should just get it over with and completely finish scrubbing all tradition out of the game and dissolve the leagues and create six divisions formed mostly on geographic proximity:

    The California division:

    Oakland/San Jose/Ukiah A's
    San Francisco Giants
    San Diego Padres
    Los Angeles Dodgers
    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Orange County, California

    The Yankee division:

    New York Yankees
    New York Mets
    Boston Red Sox
    Miami Marlins
    Tampa Bay Rays (because, lets face it, the biggest crowds in Florida come when playing the Boston and New York teams as expatriates of those areas come to route for the visitors)

    The Mid-Atlantic And Friends Division:

    Atlanta Braves
    Baltimore Orioles
    Washington Nationals
    Philadelphia Phillies
    Toronto Blue Jays

    The I-94 Division:

    Chicago Cubs
    Chicago White Sox
    Milwaukee Brewers
    Minnesota Twins
    Detroit Tigers

    The Midwest Division:

    Cleveland Indians
    Pittsburgh Pirates
    Cincinnati Reds
    Kansas City Royals
    St. Louis Cardinals

    The Southwest Division:

    Houston Astros
    Texas Rangers
    Oklahoma City Mariners (no sense making teams go all the way to Seattle)
    Colorado Rockies
    Arizona Diamondbacks

    No more need to worry about "interleague play" as it's all one big league now, and everyone uses the designated hitter. Yeah, I could get behind this...

    Haha! Love the re-alignment. I think Seattle should be able to keep the Mariners name though. Just in case. 😉

    Dude you're a Cubs fan. You don't get to throw that dig.



    Actually watching the Sox-Yanks right now. Safe to say the lastest era of epic teams and battles is over. Who are these guys?? Barely recognize either team.

    Good. Time for both teams to step aside for a year or ten.

    Agreed.



    Doesn't help that ESPN will continue to suck their dicks, though.

    Not the reply I was expecting from you. Aren't you a Red Sox fan?

    Sf Giants start ANOTHER Title defense today.

    2 World Series wins in 3 years. No matter what happens this year, I am good with it.

    Tough matchup today. Dodgers v Giants. Kershaw v Cain.

    Let's go Giants.....

    All my life. That 2004 World Series was incredibly special shit. But the past few years have really turned me off. The Red Sox thing got so obnoxious between the fans, the media saturation locally, the ESPN/Fox saturation, the amount of douche bag players, the incredibly unlikeable owners, Bobby Valentine last year........and on and on (see: Truck Day ). They've become less of a sports team and more of a marketing machine and I fucking hate it. It changed from what I grew up with.


    On top of that, I absolutely hate that baseball has no salary cap and is not a level playing field. The Red Sox morphed into the Yankees trying to buy championships and it just rubbed me the wrong way. This may sound insane to you but I miss the days of being the underdog and hoping for that magical season. Those days are over and I really miss that.
