  1. Hope I get to see it here in Idaho. Out West, Eastern teams are always being prempted by the Giants or something like a tractor pull contest.
  2. I'm consistantly impressed by the level of knowledge and passion i see expressed on this site and people with this degree of commitment have earned the right speak without editing themselves. I'm glad you disagree with the tenor of some posts. This site wouldn't be worth it if we all just agreed on everything. It would be like a particularly boring church service. Basically, when we hate this team it's because it means so much to us. It's not all that bad when you think of it.
  3. If the Crime Dog is the HOF is bad how about Dave Kingman? A few years back some writers actually worried out loud that he might have a shot because he had over 400 homers (before the new long ball era). It was if they were obligated by statistics to honor him.
  4. Speaking of TV and for those of us out of the region, does anyone watch the televised games on MLB.COM's links? I'm not sure that it's worth $70 or whatever to see a game on something a bit larger than a postage stamp.
  5. 9-7 and another walk-off homer!
  6. It would be a disappointment. I was kinda hoping for the meaning of life to have a little more meat on it.
  7. You put your best hitters in, You take your worst hitters out; You put your best pitchers in, And you shake it all about. You crush the Cleveland Indians, And you turn yourself around. That's what it's all about! (second verse same as the first)
  8. A lot can change in a week. Last week Thames was on everyone's list. He didn't make your's this week. Do you see place for him?
  9. I have noticed this, Charles, and Randy Smith seems to be a logical culprit. Less logically, there was a 23-year gap between 1945 and 1968. Maybe we'll win in 2007! That might be possible! The least logical possibility is that Randy Smith sent us off to an alternate universe where the Tigers didn't win in 2000 and that everyone on this site needs to wear pyramid Devo hats and chant "Doooooon Weeerrrrrrrt" to get us back. Are we not (wo)men?
  10. Glad he was there! His lighting the torch at the Atlanta Olympics was one of the most moving and incredible things I've ever seen. When he lifted that torch I held my breath and prayed that he wouldn't drop it. He seemed so frail. When it was lit it was so symbolic. Still standing, still proud.
  11. I'm January 27, 1952 so I think Charles did my work for me. Thanks!
  12. I was just a little kid in the 60s but I seem to remember seeing Rick Reichert of the Angels hit one on to the roof in left and Norm Cash on to or over the roof in right. Both happened on ball or bat days because those were the days my dad would make the three hour drive to take me to a game.
  13. Wow. So close yet so far. Doesn't even qualify as a "cup of coffee," I guess. My father-in-law has a friend who's the Coor's distributor in Southern Idaho. He was a pitcher and his major league batting average is 1.000. One single in one at bat for the Cubs a long time ago. Now maybe that one qualifies as a glass of beer?
  14. Wish Levine could have these three-up-three-down innings when the game is really on the line.
  15. If Thames ends up hitting 45 to 50 homers will DD still be saying, in effect, "But we have Alex Sanchez!" If Thames ends up being Cecil Fielder and we let him go....Then again, he could be like Ron Kittle.
  16. I got my sticker of the logo from Biff yesterday and it's on the back window of my Grand Caravan attracting chicks like I was in beer commercial or something...or not. Hey, I like it anyway.
  17. i like your style! Drop some acid and put the movie Videodrome in the VCR. You'll get the same effect.
  18. Glad I clicked on that link before I got out the razor blades and crawled into the tub.
  20. This should help you! http://www.radio-locator.com/
  21. I'd like this pinned too but we can at least keep it close to the top by replying a lot. Send emails to Motown Web Guy I suppose.
  22. Tell us what you really think! Hey, my heart sank when I saw his name in the lineup today.
