      At least you have some sort of purpose in life.
      No one can make you
      Do what they want to
      You know you're stronger
      Than the lies
      That they tell you

        Doing just fine. We're beating up on a bunch of cheese puffs right now, but such is life.

        How was life from 1919 to 2003? That's quite a few generations ago, I hear. Were you (or even your grandparents) alive back then?

          In order:

          Dodgers 1958
          Giants 1958
          Angels 1961
          A's 1968
          Padres 1969
          Mariners 1977

          HTH
          Are the Dodgers and Giants something like twins, with one being born 5-10 minutes before the other? Did the LAD game begin an hour before the SFG game? Or did the infamous [invisible to Brooklyn Dodger fans]Walter O'Malley[/invisible] just make his announcement to move first?

          You've never heard of Dodger dogs?

          Though you'd be excused if you thought I might be referring to the team that plays in Petco.
          I see that they're ballpark hot dogs sold at Dodger Stadium (formerly Chavez Ravine).

          Petco, Qualcomm. They should just stop changing names and call them all the Shamus, since that's the most famous thing in San Diego anyway (not named Tony Gwynn, Sr, of course).

            Are they clean or dirty?
            The little guy is 2Bman Dustin Pedroia, their itty bitty gritty little dirtdog.

            The Red Sox players wear the patched sox as a symbol of their team. It's their corporate logo.

            Red Sox fans, however, air their dirty laundry in here. I'm waiting for them to start crying about now.

                OK, that must be it. I just knew that [invisible]The Big O[/invisible] dragged the Giants along for the ride, making it even worse for the NYC baseball area, especially NL fans.

                    Does it really matter. The only team that has bragging rights is the team that took the World Series last year, it was not the Bosox and not the Yanks.

                    OH, so since the Bosox won two WS in recent years and the Yanks have not since 2000............ what about it, it's all in the past, you don't get extra points because your WS wins were more recent.

                    Like when Yankee fans talk about past WS wins, they are told, thats in the past.

                    Well now both the Bosox and Yankee WS wins are in the past.

                    I can tell you this much if it is the past you want to discuss, 86 year dry spell compared to all those flags flying in New York, Yankee fans have had more fun, loads more.

                      Not quite, Dodger's O'Malley got the Giant's to go along with them.

                      But yeah, to Mattingly, they went as twins.

                        Exactly. Boston fans love to selectively edit out or forget all the times when their guys lost bad. 1946, 1967, 1975, 1978, 1986, 2003. Like their heart was ripped out of their soul again and again and again.

                        The Yanks had an 18-year dry spell from 1978-96, and we got swept in 1976 before winning in 1977-78, and before that, it was 15 years (1961-62), so this isn't that bad. I have no idea how they think we'd somehow forgotten about this. It's like comparing a well-oiled machine vs one whose wheels are falling off as it continues trudging along.

                        All I can tell you is that I've seen more Yankee WS championship teams in my lifetime than any living Red Sox fan (unless they're at least 100), with the first involving Reggie Jackson, the late and always beloved Thurman Munson, and the other Bronx Zoo characters.

                        Back to the current state of affairs:

                        Who's doing better wearing #18? Johnny Damon or $111m Dice-K (Dice-Who)? Just wondering.

                        Did Brian Cashman do better with CC and AJ, or did Theo do better in his Ca$h for Clunkers deal with Penny and Smoltz? Let me think about that a little.

                        Is Lowell still the bargain version of A-Rod, or does he even play much these days? How's Ortiz hitting these days?

                          The Giants announced in August, 1957. The Didgers announced in October, 1957.

                              Cool! The Giant's are the first MLB team to the Pacific Coast. Heh. This goes against accepted history why?

                              Got a cite we can reference?
