    Default Field of Dreams - All things Baseball

    With the advent of the Hall of Fame announcement on us and Pitchers & Catchers less than 2 months from reporting, I thought a thread for "All things about baseball" seemed appropriate.

    So post away regarding your favorite teams, players and managers. Hot Stove reports, potential trade rumors and predictions!!! Root for your favorite teams success, rue its demise!!! Have at it Baseball fans!!!

    You all know where I stand!!!! LOL

    On to #28!!!!!!!

    I love baseball, it is far and away my favorite sport. I am a long term Braves fan...I became a fan the abysmal mid 80's so it is not like I jumped on the bandwagon when they were so hot. I am sad to admit that I let my interest wane in the post divorce I'll Show You I Don't Need You Or Your Shit phase and probably couldn't tell you 2 players from last year's starting line up.

    Likewise a lifelong fan - baseball is the only sport I really care about, to be honest. I'm a HUGE MN Twins far, so I'm sure Merlin1958 and I will have the most....interesting conversations

    So what was my fave Christmas present this year - a signed Mariano Rivera baseball - so I guess everyone knows where I stand too!

    Beign from the Washington DC Metro area i also take at least a glancing interest in what the Nationals are up to. They are spending some cash and building a team - they can only get better! As far as the National League goes that is! :-)

    Pitchers & Catchers reprot in what - like 5 weeks! Come on Spring Training!

    Hey, The Twins are a great ballclub!!! Gardenhire is a quality manager and a class act to boot. Lately the Bombers seem to have their number like the Angels had ours for a while, But the ball bounces funny ways!!!

    Good Luck!

    Well, fantastic then! I have a few Yankees fans as friends who aren't half as respectful. I suppose it's just what I've come to expect.

    Relating to the title, I can't watch that movie without being reduced to tears at the end. Don't know why, My Dad played catch with me, and I with my Son, but something about the storyline just gets to me!!!!

    Baseball does mark the years!!!!!!

    "Is this heaven?"
    "No, it's Iowa!"

    The only time, I think Iowa is used in a movie to an amazing end. My grandpa's favorite movie quote of all time was that very line.
    It is indeed one of my favorite movies as well...mostly because it makes me think of my grandpa. I should probably go visit that field sometime...I don't live terribly far away from it.

    Thanks!

    I'm interested to see what Oakland has to offer this year. Its weird they brought back Rich Harden with a one year deal. I dont think he pitched at all in the playoffs last year for Texas

    I live close enough to Detroit to be able to see the Tigers on occasion. Even though I am not a devoted fan, I enjoy the games when I go. My Granny would have been 89 yesterday. She LOVED baseball. One of her fondest memories was of the trip she and my grandfather took to NYC. They went to Yankee Stadium and watched the "M&M"'s. The way she told that story always made me wish I could have been there.

    Wow, the M&M boys!!!! I would have loved to see that. Little trivia, did you know that the Billy Crystal/HBO film "61" about the chase for the record was actually shot at Tiger Stadium? Great film BTW, but then I am a bit biased!!! LOL

    I've been a Padres fan my whole life and am disapointed there is no more A-Gon. I wish he could have stayed here if the team wasn't so cheap and other teams weren't so greedy(Yankees and Red Sox). I love baseball. Nothing better than going to a game on a cool Summer night.
