I still follow the Tigers, just hate the owner. Once he's gone I'll root for them again. Right now I don't really cheer on one specific team, I just would like to see someone else win that hasn't won in a while.

I never jumped off the 'bandwagon', just stopped it for a while.

Yes, I was boasting last year, more out of spite than anything -- I'll give you that. You've got to admit though, this is a different Angels team this year. Hell, you said yourself that they look to be the most complete team in the American League.

why?
he apparently bought the st louis blues

Yes I said they are, with one bad match up, the Red Sox.
The Red Sox lineup murderizes the Angies' staff and will again if they meet in October. If the Red Sox fail to make the playoffs, or get taken out in the divison round by the White Sox (I know, I'm chuckling as I type that), the Angies have a legit shot at losing the World Series to the Astros.

cheketts is a top quality ownership guy. and seeing as he hates the dolan family, he's a.o.k. in my book.

to some how tie this back into baseball....

the red sox truely are lucky... the dolan family did, at one point, attempt to buy the red sox. they actually made the highest bid, but thanks to bud selig, the current ownership got it instead.

if the dolan's had bought the team, there is no way they would have won the world series last year. the team would be a mess.

damn you bud selig... damn you to hell.

You're a fair-weather fan.

When things get tough, you root for the new winner.

Isn't this what happened to the Cardinals last year? Win the division running away, and then getting stagnate toward the end, and not keeping the edge for the playoffs.

I'd be worried if I were a Cardinals fan.

Your posts about the Red Sox have always been laughable, and now I know why...

It looked like Willis was wresting the NL Cy from Carpenter until he also got lit up the other night. Carpenter has been lit up his last 4 starts though.

yeah but then we dominated the Dodgers coming out of the gate to get momentum back.

by the time you get to the world series i dont think how you finished the regular season means anything.
