When I was young I liked both the Cubs and the ChiSox. I came from a line of Cubs fans, but my best friends Dad worked for Playboy(we could never find the magazines doggone it) and they had box seats behind home plate at old comiskey. We eventually moved a few towns away, and any love for the ChiSox was erased for me. When they won the World Series I shrugged it off for some reason. My Dad was a Cubs fan, but he enjoyed the win and updated me. Looking back, it was a good win and I’m happy for ChiSox fans, and I’m even looking forward to the team they’re putting together now.

anybody else have cross town teams they don’t mind seeing have success? Cubs and the Whitesox fans have no need for beef. I’d love to see them meet in a World Series
Yankees fan here.
The 3 batter minimum ruins same handed matchups.
Stros players should be suspended for at least a year. If not, Manfred should lose his job!
The dodgers deserved ‘17 title and judge was robbed of the ‘17 MVP by altuve.
The MLB also needs to scrap the playoff “game show” idea!!!
love that bellinger said altuve stole that mvp. I love to see the players speaking up. Manfred should probably go.

I start posting, and then I get distracted, and then you get whatever I’m throwing out there. Sorry.

I am lucky/old enough to remember going to Giant games with my dad and watching Willie Mays play. Grew up in San Jose.
I now live 200 miles north and dont get to many games anymore.
I had season tickets for years in the 80-90's.
Been to may A's games too but am a NL fan at heart.
Would have loved to have that experience. Mays was one of the best all around. Mike trout is putting together that kind of career now, and I don’t think there’s anyone else in baseball on that kind of level. I imagine the way willie manned CF was much the way Ozzie smith handled SS. There are no equals.

i have 10+ 89 griff ud ,lol
There’s a movie that’s kind of about that card and card collecting. It’s escaping me right now, but I’ll update if no one comes up with it. It’s also about the 86 canseco donruss and has an appearance by Jose. It’s on prime or Netflix. I think the documentarian is a child actor and it’s about his dad running a baseball card business. I used to go to all the shows in the Chicagoland area back in the late 80s and early 90s. We thought we were swapping gold.

The movie is called jack of all trades. It’s ok. It’s on Netflix I think. If you have Netflix it’s at least worth fast forwarding to cansecos part of youre not a fan of that baseball card era. Maybe it’s on YouTube. I don’t mean to celebrate what seems to be a sped up guy and I hope he’s taking care of himself, but it seems to be a pretty bizarre depiction of him. If I was his agent, I wouldn’t let that video out.

Huge Braves fan. I hate it that MLB wants to fix things that aren't broken. I'd love to see mandatory double headers come back in July and August. I would love spending the entire day at a ball park. The games aren't too long, but the season is. MLB is also way past time for expansion. This is almost double the longest drought before this one. By expanding the league you can have four divisions and expand playoffs that way.
DH is what it is. With pitchers getting 300 million dollar contracts it is a done deal.
The players involved should be suspended. Saints players were suspended.

The brickhouse call of ernies 500 is before my time, but I’ve listened to it a million times. One of the the greatest moments in Cubs history. Wheeeee!!!

Love what the Braves are putting together. One of my favorite teams back in the day. Best group of pitchers the game ever saw as far as I’m concerned.
I’m so with you on the double header. Let’s play two!

I popped this movie on. It’s the second time I watched it. Watching it a second time, I have to say that Jose doesn’t seem as charged up as I thought the first time. Still a bit off, but I guess most of us are. His whistleblower book was really something. I like that the current players speaking out aren’t waiting to speak out until they retire.

I loved the Giants ball park until they won their second World Series. Sitting in left field chanting "Balco" with my friends. Then they won too many games and tickets went from 30 bucks to 100.

It’s the best park in the big leagues. Even better now that the bullpen mounds are off the field this season. Much safer for the players. Now if only the team was going to be any good. The 3 World Series in 5 years seems a long time ago.

I bet the price of tickets didn't go back though. I miss the garlic fries. They were the best ever.
