Not if they were in the stands with us. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

i miss good pitching :)

really, i grew up in that era too, and while i do like more HR's, the complete watering-down of major league pitching isn't so great.


and i don't know if you can't have both-today's park's are much more hitter-friendly; let's see some contraction!

definitely a wild-card fan though.

I miss players playing for the love of the game.There aren't nearly enough guys like Nomar . I also miss double headers. And I wish they would do away with the East playing a series with the West at each home park and add more games against your own division. Play one 4 game series in the East this year and than a 4 game series in the West next year. I also wish they would do away with interleague play so they could play more against each other.It takes away a little imagination come World Series time.
Kind of like looking at a beautiful young lady in a magazine. I like a like bit of clothing!!!! ;-D :-D ;-)

This may seem trivial, but I miss the 3rd base coach staying in the coach's box. Some coaches are standing more than half way down the line so they can put on the brakes later. It burns me up. Stay in the box and make a decision earlier. That's why it's there.
