    Baseball Fans...

    Hi everyone, I know I haven't been here in quite a while and I wanted to say hi. Anyway wondering if any of you are baseball fans and are watching the World Series. As you can see my user name is redbird and that comes from my baseball team the St. Louis Cardinals and who are playing in the WS this year.

    I've been recording my favorite shows so I don't miss an inning of the games. So who is your favorite baseball team if any. Go Cards...

    By the way the manager of the Cards is Tony La Russa a huge animal lover and has his own shelter in CA. Here he is with two of his friends

    Awww! I am a Red Sox fan, born, raised and lifelong ... and was surprised that I was kind of relieved that they didn't make the playoffs this year. But after the September they had, I knew the team just didn't have it together enough ...

    Okay - after that picture, I'll root for the Cardinals in this World Series!

    Since the Tigers didn't make it either...

    GO CARDS!!!!!

    I might have been cheering the Cardinals on even if the Tigers had made it, after I found out about Tony La Russa and all he has done for animals!

    I was rooting for Detroit also when they were playing Texas. Tony La Russa and Jim Leyland are very close friends.

    I have been a volunteer at Tony's shelter for three years now. So I am definitely rooting for the Cardinals.

    We have several pictures of Tony with animals at the shelter. And I've seen him there a lot over the years as well. He seems to be a very nice guy and his wife and daughters are super sweet too.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Yes that is why he has always been one of my favorite coaches as well. He and Joe Torre, Yankees fan here. I have adored Tony many years now.

    GO ST. LOUIS

    Series tied 2-2!!

    And I have to ask.....what's with all the beards in the MLB? I'm thinking that all started and got so popular because of Brian Wilson on the Giants...aka "the beard". Do they realize it makes them look so much older than they are?

    I'm not a big baseball fan and usually only watcht he World Series. I was hoping for a Tigers/Cards series, since those are the teams my close friends root for. My Best Friend and her husband live in St. Louis and are huge fans, so I am hoping the Cards win it all!

    No our Albert is not on any steroids. Cub fans have always found fault with the Cards but that is to be expected, they have been rivals forever. Maybe someday the Cubs will win a championship, they are certainly way overdue.

    I would think he would be hitting homers a lot more if he were juicing. But don't they really crack down on that now since the previous players and all that scandal?

    If the Cardinals were not in the series I would definitely be all for Texas.

    You're absolutely right, Albert was never on steroids, he is just about the best hitter in baseball right now. We could have used a homer from him last night but the pitching was too good for all the players. As far as the rest of the WS, the best team will win in the short 7 game series. Whether it's the Rangers or the Cards who take it all, I've been enjoying watching my team play in the post season. Whoever wins deserve it because it's a long, long season. Go Cards.

    Redbird and everyone, I think I should apologize for this comment. I heard on the radio that some fans feel Roger Maris still holds the home run record because other players who have broken it may have been steroid users at the time, while Maris was not. After the whole Sammy Sosa story broke around here I think a lot of fans felt let down.

    I think baseball coverage in Chicago seems anti-Mets because of the 1969 "Miracle Mets" who beat the Cubs and anti-Cardinals because of the long history of rivalry between the two teams. Kind of like the Bears with Green Bay. I've never been to New York, but my mom was born in St. Louis and lived there with my grandmother till she was 5 or 6. St. Louis is one of my favorite Midwest cities for road trips from Chicago.
