    Having faith in Pineiro would scare me. The guy was an absolute scrub in Seattle and Boston yet he goes to the Cards and he looks like he is freaking Walter Johnson! But then again, look at Smoltz and Lugo - 2 more Red Sox rejects who are playing great baseball for the Cards.

    I guess it's less faith in Pineiro, more faith in what Dave Duncan does with his pitchers.

    Agree...remember 2006? Jeff "FREAKING" Weaver and Jeff Suppan in the playoffs that year were outstanding behind Carpenter, Duncan is amazing.

    I predict that every poster is wrong, because it's baseball, and it's impossible to pick.

    I really don't follow baseball as closely as I do football or basketball. I root for the Braves most of the time and I would if they were in the postseason but they are not. I cannot stand the Yankees and I know the Red Sox winning another title while the Yankees go titleless would just really piss off the Yankees and their fans.

    You're the most non-homer fan I've known... rooting for teams of other cities... but I am glad the ROCKETS is one of those teams, sir. :D

    'Cuz Arkansas is missing NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, and NHL teams... right?

    Well I have reasons I root for these teams, I didn't just pick them out of a hat. ;) You're right, about the only thing to cheer for here in Arkansas is the University of Arkansas sports teams although we have some very minor league teams floating around.

    The way I became of fan of my big three:

    Atlanta Braves: My dad is a huge Atlanta Braves fan and that's what I grew up around so I guess it just naturally stuck. What's even more bizarre is that we live in a Cardinal dominated region as St. Louis is 3 hours away and one of their affiliates, the Memphis Redbirds, are less than a hour away.

    Philadelphia Eagles: My aunt was married to Vince Barnett, who played DB for the Cleveland Browns during the 1987 strike. His brother was Fred Barnett, the wide receiver for the Eagles. I met Fred once and he gave me a bunch of Philadelphia Eagles paraphernalia like a shirt, stickers, pens, etc. I was young and gullible so that became my team and I have stuck with them ever since.

    Houston Rockets: My aunt moved to Houston in 1990. She would send me all types of Rockets paraphernalia and basically the same way I became an Eagles fan I became a Rockets fan. I have stuck with them ever since too. :D

    I actually noticed that when it happened in real time last night. I thought to myself, "Did Cabrera just try to break his bat over his knee ala Bo Jackson?" Then they showed the replay and you can see him trying to attempt it and then think better of it. This is pretty hilarious that someone else saw this and took the time to write about it on their blog, lol.

    Don't really have a horse in this race but watching Loretta do that to the Cards brought a smile to my face and I bet also Lidge's face too.

    I remember going to MMP to watch the Stros battle the Braves and Cards, you could cut the tension with a knife...I miss that.
