I am a HUGE phillies fan! i believe they can make it again to the world series again this year. Im not too sure about who is gonna make it in the AL. Who is your favorite team in the MLB and who do you think is gonna be in the World Series this year?

GO DODGERS! As for the AL it will probably be the Yankees again or maybe the Red Soxs endless some middle of the road team gets hot down the stretch. Don't be surprised if the Rockies make another run at it again this year.

Not really a baseball fan. I only watch games I am at, never on TV. I have always been a Reds fan.

More recently GO NATINALS!!!! (They suck, maybe theya can win the first pick in the draft agian this year)

Let's go Red Sox! Plus, even if I wasn't already a rabid member of Red Sox Nation, what ukulele player (non Yankee one that is) would root against a team with a first baseman serenaded with chants of "Youk"?

Though I will accept as a very poor substitute and runner up, the Dodgers. I still hate Manny though...

Braves fan here. I also like the Sox but that is the Irish in me. My third team is Pasdres (something about San Diego).

I was born a Yankee fan, it is a long family tradition.
I already have my Yankee/Dodger tickets for a game at Dodger Stadium.

I watch both the Dodgers and Angels on TV a lot, but lately, I've been going with my family to the Angels games. My brother's a huge fan and has season tickets and invites some of us to them. Woo-Haa!!

Red Sox fan by birth. I want a sticker for my ukulele case that says "My other Youk is a first baseman." With San Francisco being my adopted city, my NL team is the Giants, although when I see the Red Sox play the Giants at AT&T Park this coming weekend, I'll be rooting for the Red Sox, and I'm planning to play "Sweet Caroline" on my ukulele before the Red Sox bat in the 8th inning (Red Sox fans will understand).

"Start spreading the news!"

So it looks like my Cubbies are out of it. Surprise, surprise. Looks like Zambrano is even more off his rocker than usual.

When does football season start?

At least Aramis Ramirez started to change his season around some! The dude was truly awful first half of the season, but is picking it up.

I'm a Braves fan as well haolejohn. Here in Hawaii you're usually either a fan of the Giants, Dodgers or Braves. Giants and Dodgers because they are west coast teams and are heard on the radio regularly, and Braves fans due to the number of games we were able to watch on TBS. Now with Shane Victorino on the Phillies, there are a lot of Philly fans.

Not on digital cable, maybe via satellite? But growing up it was just the Braves on TBS or whatever was showing on ESPN and the Giants/Dodgers on ESPN radio.

Z is such a talented pitcher (though you couldn't tell that by this year's performances) and he swings the bat like a position player. Such tremendous potential. Do you think the next player who blows up in the dugout will be described as having a "Zambrano-style meldtown?" I'm afraid it's possible.

Sadly, yes. He'll be the standard for meltdowns, at least in Chicago. They're going to have a tough time moving all these under-performing players. The good news is, we have some young players coming up that are playing well.

Looks like both my teams are dragging. I love my Red Sox but they are so banged up (still!) and I like the Dodgers but they are mediocre at best (ugh, just drove back from San Diego, where I watched them lose to the first place Padres).

The Dodgers have a nice core to their team at least WW. Kemp (kind of a down year for him), Ethier, Loney, Kershaw, etc. Growing pains I guess.

I second that. My passion for the ukulele is rivaled only by my passion for the Red Sox. I'm wearing my old beat up Ortiz shirt as I type this. :)

Looks like it might be a good year for the boys from Boston. Gonzalez and Crawford are both good players, now we just have to see if they can adjust to performing under the scrutiny that players get at Fenway.

One of the reasons I enjoyed "The Town" was just being able to see my beloved Green Monster. ;)

Here, here, jayman17. And you and I have already talked about the upcoming season, Oh wicked one. I am still waiting to get the invoice for my season tix. Our section (10) is one of the ones that they have renovated and replaced the seats this offseason. I am sure that we are going to get hit with a price increase. We haven't had one in our section in three years.

Gonna be a great year for the Phils. The rotation could go down as one of the best of all time. Chooch Ruiz will have them hitting their spots. Hopefully, Utley and Rollins get back on track/healthy this year. We'll miss Worth, but he'll miss playing for the Phils even more (while he spends all that money, of course.).
