DH proud.

I haven't seen the NL win since I was 11 fucking years old. Consider that I really started paying attention around the age of 8, the team I root for has gone 3-12-1 over the last 16 years.

I would really like to see the NL win a fucking game for once.

Also, fuck the DH, it is the stupidest rule in any sport.

I agree but the gap isn't as big as it is made out to be.

AL has won 6 of the last 10 WS and 4 of those wins were NY and Boston with the 2 largest payrolls by a big margin.

I can only think of the Dodgers and maybe the Cards in the NL who spend a lot. Maybe the Giants...

Edit: Of the top 6 payrolls, the Mets are the only NL team.

Also, I have to give the Cards a pass because they have the greatest player of this generation on their team, and he deserves what he gets.

You are right in one sense.

The difference between the Dodgers/Giants and Yankees/Red Sox is that

While the Yanks and Sox spend millions on A-Rod and Sabathia/Beckett and Beltre

The Giants and Dodgers spend millions on Zito and Rowand/Darren Dreifort and Kevin Brown

At least the AL teams spend wisely

Stan Musial was the man.

My grandpa was born in East St. Louis, Illinois.

He was in the Cards farm system before going into the military.

Anyways, he told me he once went to a game where Stan Musial hit a home run to the same exact spot 3 times in one game and one guy caught all 3 homers.

No, that should've been last year. That would've been great. You would've needed a tampon the size of the Astrodome to clean that mess up. Would've been good practice for BP before the oil spill.

I figured you meant Andujar, because he blew up in Game 7 with a 9.00 ERA - while Tudor pitched pretty solidly in that series, including a complete game shutout and two wins, IIRC.
