I am a Yankee Fan!! Yes, even now I am not ashamed to say it. It’s sad to see that the Yankees are the “other” New York baseball team this year. With 38 games left in the season and being 9.5 games out of first place. I just don’t see them making the playoffs this year or even getting the wild card. I have my fingers crossed, but I don’t see it happening.

In the American League, I can see the ALCS coming down to the Los Angeles Angels and the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays are a good team with not much experience in the post season. The Angels have a better record to this point in the season.


In the National League, I see the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers battling it out for the NLCS. The Dodgers definitely helped themselves out in the run department by getting Manny Ramirez. They also just picked up Greg Maddux from San Diego. The odds are in their favor. However, I still see the Chicago Cubs battling every step of the way. They have alot of history to overcome, but this just may be their year.


So I see the World Series coming down to the Angels vs. the Cubs. We shall see in October!!


TRADED…Manny Ramirez!!

Manny Ramirez has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Seems like Joe Torre can’t get the Red Sox out of his system.

Anyway, I think this was a smart move for the Red Sox, this guy was a total distraction and so not motivated to help his team. He only wanted to help himself.

I don’t know much about playing in the Majors all I know is what I see and read in the media. I just can’t understand how a player, in general, can become so disgruntled that he would just not be motivated to play and talk bad about the ball club that pays him so much money.

This is a kid’s game played by adults. There are thousands of ball players that would sell their soul to have a chance to play in the Majors and make the type of money that Manny Ramirez is making, and these guys would never complain. Why would you???

You get to play the game you love, that’s your “job”. When you’re not playing, you are living a lavish life of houses, cars women, etc… I just don’t get it.

Bottom line is….If you are making Millions of dollars to play baseball, you should not complain AT ALL!!! There are people out there who pay alot of money to see you play, you should not be bitching about a contract in the middle of the season and play like a lazy jerk-off because you have no “mental peace”. Get a grip!

I’m a middle class father of 2 who loves baseball and would love to show my son the game and the guys who appreciate it. Frankly, Manny Ramirez is not baseball. He’s a greedy asshole who only cares about Manny Ramirez. Good Riddance Jerk-Store!!
