At the beginning of this year's post-season it looked like we might have an exciting World Series w/ a possible victory for the Boston Red Sox or the Chicago Cubs (both teams have about three centuries of combined seasons w/o a World Series victory). Well, between last night's meltdown for the Cubbies and another victory for Roger Clemmons and the best team money can buy, it's going to be Yankees-Marlins going for the big title. I haven't been this apathetic toward baseball since the SF/Oakland series of '89... ...while watching the Cubs play last night I noticed that there were only two names that I recognised: Sammy Sosa (even if you don't follow baseball you know this guy) and Dusty Baker (he played for the Dodgers when I was a kid). The rest were all strangers to me. Perhaps it's because of free agency, lots of new players coming up from the farm systems, or the fact that I just don't watch the games. Not sure. All I know is that each one was mentionned playing for someone else a couple of years ago. What gives? How can you cheer for a team if they change lineups every couple of years? Are we just cheering for logos and uniforms? -Ferret "maybe if we're lucky, Yankee Stadium will explode during Game One - no big loss, really..."
