    Been a Blue Jays fan forever.

    When I was a little kid I dreamed of playing for them... :lol:

    Don't have TV anymore though so the only time I get to see games is when my family gets together and me and the brother-in-law steal the TV for an afternoon. So very rarely.

    I still remember the '92 and '93 World Series bouts like they were yesterday. My high school yearbooks from those years even have whole sections devoted to the Jays parades. Heck, I even remember why I hate the Oakland A's so much (1989 ALCS). Glad the Jays have a more classic-looking uniform this year, now if they could just go on a real winning tear for that wild-card.

    Cincinnati Reds fan here. can't say i hate the Rangers though, speaking from a pitcher's stand point, Nolan Ryan was a beast..

    So, is anyone keeping tabs on the playoffs this year? I am really pulling for Baltimore, party because I hate the Yankees, but also because they haven't been contenders in a really long time. Though I do have a sof spot for Washington, if only because they used to be the Expos.

    Im upset the A's struck out so much and that its over. But they played one amazing 9th inning the other night. Being from the Bay Area, Ive got a backup plan I call the SF Giants. Thats all for now. Giants Yankees would be pretty epic.

    Lifelong Redsox fan here. They did a pretty good job of cleaning house and getting rid of the cement heads during the offseason. I wanted them to jettison Aceves before the season started, and I'd still entertain the idea of moving Ellsbury. All in all they did a pretty good job of getting solid blue collar major league players on the roster.

    Everybody in the Canadian media was tripping over themselves proclaiming that this would be the Jays finest year since the early 90's. Yeah. Every game I managed to catch has been a blowout not in their favour. Last night was fun, switching between two Toronto games featuring Boston teams simply deeeeestroying us. At least I can say I'm used to that sight!

    Phils fan patiently waiting for the new TV deal in 2015, and cementing our official place as team that spends the most money on old players, besides the Yankees.

    I always thought ChiSox and Cubs fans had a mutual dislike of one another, except maybe at Blackhawks/Bulls/Bears games. What do you do when they meet in inter-league? Anyway, despite my earlier pessimism, Jays break .500 after 10 wins in a row, keep it goin' boys!!!! Definitely watching the game today!

    I'm a dodgers fan, though I haven't been following it too much this year. All I know is Puig has been getting things stirred up for us lately. I haven't been to one game this season either..... Oh man what going on with me!

    Soo.... baseball... I gotta say, as a Toronto fan, this is really looking like a good year. I've watched more games this season already than the whole of last and am loving every minute of it! With Toronto teams being so universally mediocre for so long, I'm really hoping I get to see a playoff run for my guys this year. Haven't gotten to see the Jays pull a pennant since I was in high school (in fact, had my first multi-beer evening after the Carter homer)!

    SIGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHH

    The giants are still in first, but we've lost 6 out of 7 and the skid includes 3 blown saves in a row.

    long season though.
