I don't think there was ever a greater rivalry in sports than this one. Lakers-Celtics, Auburn-Alabama, USC - Notre Dame, Penn State-Pitt, Raiders-Chiefs, Cubs-Cardinals, Canadiens-Maple Leafs, Dodgers-Giants, Bears-Packers ... all pale beside Red Sox - Yankees. It is a rivalry that transcends time, place and quality of the teams.
What in the heck is going on with Seattle? I figured that they had lost a step vis-à-vis Anaheim and Oakland, but I don't think anyone expected them to struggle this much. It looks like their pitching staff is getting torched.
Great to see a team like Detroit get off to such a nice start. Hard to not like a team that has statutes of Tigers all over their ballpark:
Is anyone ever going to beat Florida again? These guys seriously scare me: they pitch well, play good defense, don't really depend on a superstar, they get clutch hits, and they own the Phillies. These guys are good.
That's it for this week! Tomorrow is my birthday, so I ain't blogging. See you guys Monday!
