I can remember when I could really get up for these games. In fact, for any games. But I find it hard to watch baseball on TV these days. Part of it is the announcers. But mostly it's the pace of play and just the way the game has changed over the years. And, yes, I go back many years. I grew up with the Yankees in the Fifties, and there was no better time or place to be a baseball fan. I barely recognize the game anymore. I give a look-in to a game now and then, but it's been years since I've sat through more than a batter or two. I still enjoy the summer college league team that plays at a city nearby, and the AA team further down the road, but the MLB these days leaves me cold.

One of the three AL powerhouses will win the World Series this year, the Astros, Yankees, Red Sox. I'm not sure which one, but I'm convinced that one of the three will walk away with the World Series Title. The best NL team isn't as good as any of the top three AL teams.

uther99: The Oline is just too bad to compete. If you max protect, how many WRs go out, 2? That's 2 WRs against 7 defenders, good luck.

GordonG: Homer, I hope you get good news this week. Like Troy, I also beat cancer. I was fortunate that it was caught very early. So early that it could have easily been diagnosed as benign.
