            Threads that SHOULD be:

            How the Yankees will save your life.

            Yankees: Twenty seven time world champions or forty World Series, which is the greater achievement?

            Thanks to all you crappy teams for being the Yankees farm system.

            If there were no Red Sox, would the Yankees have to create them?

            And many more Yankee based themes that will enrich your life ;-)

            And I really didn't have to stop...I just kept on going.

                If you go to your user CP, you'll see a list of options on the left. Under the heading that says "Networking," you'll see a link to social groups. Click that and you should find it easily enough.

                  Hold on a second: why are we advertising our baseball group? Don't we want it restricted to real baseball fans, not effete, champagne-sipping pansies, like those Limeys and Frenchies 'cross the pond? C'mon, Ibis, get with the program here.

                    As I see it, its our obligation to expose our friends around the world to the greatest sport mankind has created. Then, hopefully, soccer will fade away into oblivion and I'll not have to be bothered with it being on Sportscenter every four years when there is a World Cup.

                      Soccer's fine. Now cricket . . . . . ah cricket. Now there's a total waste of grass. After a couple of "overs" (as in, "bend over") of that , you'll be seeing soccer as the most stimulating thing since crystal meth.

                        Soccer the original football,is terrific. Cricket-naw. Now baseball. Baseball is God's game. Smell the grass. The popcorn. The leather of a new glove. The fresh smell of new wood of a Louisville Slugger bat. Baseball. America's Game.

                        And where we southerner's diss the New York Yankees. We are Braves fans,and we talk about the Cubs,Cardinals,and practically everyone else,and we detest the Yankees,Red Sox,and most of the American League,and we hate the Designated Hitter. Since 1972,that disgrace has haunted our great American Pastime. A scourge on the face of baseball. The DH. I wish it was banned permanently.

                        Now give me someone like Chipper Jones over Big Papi or any Yankee any day of the week.
                        Sorry Marc. Sorry Dog. I'm a southerner. But you're still my pals.

                          The DH was a great invention. Who wants to see a pitcher bat? Not me.
                          I don't buy the whole "it takes away from the strategy" argument. There is no strategy involved with sending a pitcher up to bunt with men on base. Or if it is strategy, its too basic to be in 100 level course. The double switch? So what. Another no-brainer for the manager. All that happens is another player good enough to start winds up on the bench. That doesn't make for good fan enjoyment (which is frankly what its all about).

                          I guess I'm not a baseball traditionalist. I don't want to see a .146 batter ruin a two-out rally in a 1-0 game in the 7th inning because the manager can't trust his pen. So the DH makes sense. Its good for baseball because its good for the fans. At least fans like me.




                          Edit - I think this might make a good topic for the Group.

                            What I dont get is how can a guy so right that write something as wrong as this:

                            I see, you're a Southerner: the ability to consistently apply logic was bred out of you generations ago. It's not your fault.

                            And if the Braves are such a great franchise, then how come they haven't ranked higher than 10th in MLB attendance in the last ten years? Aren't there any Braves' fans down there?



                            Now kiss the rings. Two of them are courtesy of the Atlanta Braves.
