    Might then you explain for the possible disdain for the local AL club known affectionately as the "South Siders"?

    Sure, I like the Reds. Really like the Reds. But it doesn't mean that I hate everyone else.

    I'm one of about 26 or so (not counting family or friends) that enjoy Tampa Bay Devil Rays baseball. Nice young team that aggrevates the Yankees & Red Sox now and then. The extra plus was Sweet Lou.

    I spend the $150 on MLB EI - just to have a game on at 10:30 or if Vin Scully is in LA reminding me its time for Dodger baseball - or - to remind me not to hurry to cause accidents, because there is plenty of baseball to be played.

    I think some of you wonder how I go through life liking the D-Rays and Reds. I also enjoy setting myself on fire, plucking my eyebrows with an electric brush trimmer, and sitting in a hot-tub while using a hair dryer.

    Rather than start a new thread, may as well jump in here! I'm a Red Sox fan, a fan of the game, and as a member of SoSH, NYYFans, OriolesHangout, etc., find it fascinating to check out boards such as RedsZone to read what fans have to say about their teams. Now to throw in my 2 pennies on Matt Clement...

    I think you are the first Tampa Bay fan I have ever encountered. Seriously. And I've seen them play in person numerous times.

    The Vin Scully thing you mentioned kind of brings home the crux of why I think a person can love more than one team: there are lot of reasons to love a baseball team. For me it's pretty straightforward (although I did once feel the need to write a ten thousand word essay about it): I grew up in Cincinnati and New York. There was no way I was going to be without a local baseball team to follow. The Reds are very special to me because I haven't lived in Cincinnati as an adult and they give me a very strong tie to my childhood. The Yankees are my grown-up team and I love them just as much. If they ever meet in the World Series, I really don't know what I'll do. Luckily, this is about as likely to happen in the near future as Eric Milton throwing six perfect games next year.

    The way I look at it is -- what are the reasons you fall in love with a baseball team? Could be familial influence, could be one player who catches your fancy, could be an entire group of good guys you really like, could be an amazing game you happen to catch, could be some dude you meet in a bar who tells you some amazing story about something that happened to some team in 1948. All of these things can happen more than once.

    As for the White Sox -- I like them, not a lifelong fan, but I like the team they've put together over the last few years. I've always liked Ozzie, I thought the trade for all-around slow crazyman AJ Pierzynski was genius (seriously), and as a Reds fan I'm completely in awe of their pitching staff. I would think most people are predisposed to like teams unless they're given good reason not to, maybe I'm wrong? There are only a couple of teams in baseball that I actively hate and this takes up a lot of my energy.

    I do know somebody who, because of her parents, follows both the Cubs and the Cardinals. Now that's weird.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Re: Hey

    when i started following baseball when i was 4 or 5, only two of the teams i liked were in the same division. then in 1995 or 96, suddenly all four teams i followed were in the same division.

    27.

    Although I'm not certain "enjoy" is always the most applicable descriptor.

    Oh, yeah, before I forget... welcome to you new guys (girls?).

    Re: Hey

    I like them both since they are in the AL and NL. That would be my dream world series. I don't know who I would want to win. On the site im on everyone has a favorite team in both leagues.

    Except when someone suggests Adam Dunn strikes out too much.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
