When I was younger the team that gave the Sox fits was the Royals. F**king Royals...every time the Sox played in KC Willie Wilson would have like 13 triples in one game, they'd lose another on a walkoff hit from Brett or White or McRae, and then they'd face Gubicza or Saberhagen and lose 2-1 with Quisenberry (RIP) getting the save. I used to dread the 2 series in KC every year...

That is just ridiculous, and they're really not that bad...though they'd have to be better than they are to make me want to sweat my b@lls off in the South Florida heat...that team needs a dome or a contraction.

There were less than 200 fans there yesterday. That's just crazy.

The Angels were healthier in the 2nd series than they were in the 1st.

That said, the Halos will have their hands full with the Yankees in the playoffs. I don't care about the whole "Angels own the Yankees" bit. The Yankees are like 60-30 since early June, better than both the Angels and Red Sox in that time frame. The Yanks' offense is rolling and pretty scary. Plus, the Angels can beat good right-handers but Scioscia throws a weaker lineup at left-handers (Robb Quinlan instead of Casey Kotchman and then he'll probably put Juan Rivera or Reggie Willits in there, too), which is why the Yanks will win game 1 with Pettitte.

I'm not a Yankees fan, but Dear New York Yankees: please kick the snot out of the Angels in the post season.

Thank you.

Angels have a winning record vs. NY since Sciosca took over, and have bounced them from the playoffs twice. I saw 4 Yankee/Angel playoff games in my time in LA, and the Yanks lost 3, including the final game of their 2005 season.

I hope the Marlins stay in Florida. They desperately need a new, more fan-friendly stadium.

I do think it's the stadium, but I'm not sure even with an indoor park if the Marlins could ever do really well down there. Tampa has a dome and they don't draw (though granted they've been pretty bad). FL is really a football state...

they need a small, 35,000 seat stadium, similar to PNC Park in pittsburgh, and it needs to be right dead smack in downtown Miami, not on the outskirts of town like Dolphin Stadium is.

and of course they need to not have a fire sale every 5 years.

perhaps the outgoing twins GM can be hired to save the marlins.

I was thinking the exact same thing. MLB needs to have the Florida market.

The Twins fired their GM? How did I miss that? I've always thought Ryan was an excellent GM, especially for a penny-pinching club like Minnesota. Marlins would be a logical fit.

Did anyone see Damon last night? Fan offered him $20 (CDN) for a flyball, he took it but then gave the money to another fan. I thought it was cute. I know a lot of Sox fans hate Damon but I don't...they don't win the WS without Damon so I love the guy, Yankee or not.

Clemens, however, can fuck off & die

he wasn't fired, he stepped down.

and baseball survived for many a year without a florida market (other than spring training) and could easily survive if the Marlins were to move to, say, san antonio or las vegas. but if they were to stay in florida, they would need a new, small stadium in downtown miami. or orlando even. but sitting in a 70,000 seat converted football stadium on the outskirts of miami is accomplishing nothing. even if they get 20,000, let alone 200, the place still looks empty.

OK that makes more sense. Hopefully the new guy will want to trade Justin Morneau for Coco Crisp...

Downtown Miami is not the safest place in the world.
They need a new stadium, but not downtown. Dolphin stadium or whatever its called now is in a very easy to access spot, basically you exit the highway right onto the 50 yard line. But its well out of Miami.

The Marlins should find a spot around North Miami Beach area, nicer, safer than downtown Miami.
