I guess you forgot the 80's and early 90's...

Looks like I'll be in the Bronx tomorrow night! Can't wait because I have the best seats I've ever had at the new stadium.

I hope you enjoy your birthday at the stadium. And I also hope the Yankees lose, though I don't see it with Nova pitching.

It would be a win-win. You get a mostly cool birthday at the stadium and I avoid the constant chirping from my Yankee-fan in laws.

It's not in disgust or indifference... he's worried about his ticker! You couldn't find a bigger fan.

BTW, we (Rays) beat Texas 8-1 in the first game of our series, and you see how that ended. Thud.

Thanks!

I actually wanted the Sox in the playoffs. My only distain for the current team is directed at Papelbon. I'm pissed I didn't get to go to a Red Sox/Yanks game this year. I usually get at least one in.

I'm not a big Pap fan, either, but he had a great year.

It's really kind of hard to hate the Yankees players. I'd love to have Swisher, Mariano is the best ever and all class, Jeter is to be admired, love Posada, Cano is destined for greatness and Granderson is just a great guy on and off the field.

Of course, A-Rod and Burnett make it really, really easy for me to overlook the good guys.

Oswalt on the mound for Philly tonight, Jackson going for St louis. Prediction: The phillies finally get to face a fastball pitcher and will take full advantage.

If the Phillies somehow lose tonight, they go back to Philly for game 5 and start Halladay...I like our chances!

I will be rooting for the D-backs to at least take the series to a game 5, just so the Brew Crew doesn't get any rest. Of course, I wouldn't mind seeing Philly face AZ either, but I don't see that happening.

Hell no, I remember how baseball was 20- 30 years ago. It's kind of the point I was talking about. Teams went up and down back then. Congrats on the great seats. I'd love to be there for the game.
