    Baseball Fans???

    I know the season is over but I just wondered if any of you are into baseball. I love the sport and have been a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals for over 40 years. They won their 11th World Series this year so I am really happy over this. Just wondered if you like baseball and if so, who is your favorite team

    A fan of baseball since I first became aware of the sport - about 65 years ago

    Love the Tigers, and the Red Sox. Cheers to Justin Verlander, AL Cy Young Award winner and AL MVP

    I remember the 1968 World Series between the Tigers and the Cardinals. Our Mickey Lolich was MVP of that Series - beating out both starting pitchers, Bob Gibson and Denny McClain.

    Adding to my baseball history - one Saturday back in July 1973, I took my son and his friend up to Tiger Stadium to see the Tigers and Angels. I still have my scorecard and ticket stub from that game. Nolan Ryan pitched the 2nd No-hitter of his career that day, striking out 16 along the way. He went on to pitch 5 more before retiring.

    Since Tony La Russa has retired from being manager of the Cardinals, the owners were interviewing others for his job. Terry Francona was one they interviewed and it was Francona I was hoping they would hire but they didn't. I always liked him but now I heard he was staying away from managing next year and broadcasting the games instead. Every time the Sox were playing the Yankees, I rooted for the Sox. Believe it or not, I still miss Manny.

    I live in NJ and should be a Yankee or Met fan but I don't like either team. I have been to St. Louis to see my team only twice, needed to fly there. It's tough having your team so far away and can't get to the games but I am on the MLB forum and I talk to all fellow Cardinal fans daily which helps a lot.

    Gotta revive this thread, since I don't see an MLB one for this year yet... last year was such an amazing season for the Cards, and winning the world series... the whole playoffs for them was A-MA-ZING. Talk about baseball!

    Not sad to see Pujols go. He can take his ego elsewhere Granted, I did meet him at my previous job when I worked at a specialty practice, we did surgery on one of his GDS pups Honey. He was a really cool person; his wife, on the other hand... total female dog!!! So I have a feeling his "decision" was mainly his wife's doing and not so much his own... But he isn't doing so hot this year, so jokes on them I guess!

    I think Matheny is doing an excellent job this year.... but, he does have an incredible team of players working for him so it isn't like he has to do much

    I don't expect we'll go to the WS again this year, but gotta be proud of the fact that we are the #2 team in most WS won (behind the Yankees of course with 27!!) and also tied for #2 of most WS appearances (18!). LOVE the Cards!!!!!

    Cool sidenote:

    We're a houseful of Red Sox fans.

    However, MJ got the autograph from a member of the 1950's NY Yankees.

    He's the father of her math teacher, and he came to talk to the class, which was nice.

    That's really cool! The Yankees beat the Phillies in the World Series in1950 - their 13th Series.

    I've been a Cards fan for over 40 years, have gone a few managers but La Russa was my favorite and I hated to see him go. If we didn't have so many injuries this season we would probably still be in 1st place. I'm not sure about Matheny yet, this is his first time managing so he has a lot to learn. Hey Mike, just call Tony when you need some help GO CARDS!!!

    In a way, it's a good thing that Pam is no longer around. Her poor Phillies - I can only imagine the flack she would be getting here. Even I, with my limited following of the team, can't believe how miserable they are performing this year!

    Just saw Tony at ARF (www.arf.net) yesterday. He was there for several hours. I think it's cool when he's there and people coming in to adopt get to see him.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Well the Cards are still in it so far. We got the Wild Card and play Atlanta Friday night. As you know, it's a must win game for us, Go Cards, let's get to the NLDS.
