It’s that time of year – Interleague! Who could forget such classic match-ups as Toronto vs. Arizona or Colorado vs. Kansas City? We cannot always meet up with our “natural” rival. In some cases, our team may not even have a “natural” rival, which leads to some pretty lame match-ups. When push comes to shove though, Interleague is still the best thing to happen to Major League Baseball.
Does it devalue the World Series? No way. It just makes the rivalry that more heated. I would make an argument that the All-Star Game deciding Home Field advantage is more devaluing.
However, speaking of devaluing…
The Subway Series
Talk about two teams limping to the midpoint. Ugh! This series has been almost intolerable to watch, or in my case, to listen to on Game Day Audio. The only thing it has going for it is that C.C. is on the mound today, facing Johan.

Yeah, I know I’m not in the New York market. Nonetheless, because Chicago is currently the center of the Hockey universe, it’s near impossible to find a decent Baseball game on television.

I finally gave up and landed on Boston vs. Philadelphia on TBS. Tim Wakefield is about to come to bat.
Talk about comedy, which is what you can totally call my…
Fantasy Baseball Team
Teixeria! Mark, you are killing me. You’ve cold again?! You’re like my douchey ex-boyfriend. You can’t be serious!
Which speaking of being the epitome of professionalism…
The TBS Announcers
Come on guys! I understand that Boston took a No-No pretty late into the game yesterday, but it didn’t happen. Move on. Isn’t there a game you should be covering? I’m sorry. Almost No-No’s are no big deal (unless you’re Tom Seaver). If it was a big deal, it would be a No-No. Am I wrong on this?
I’m going to spend the rest of my afternoon reading “The Yankee Years” and eating my homemade soup (which I made for the first time this morning by the way).
