A-Rod had some great years in Seattle but he wasn't a major part of the magical team of '95, and he was gone (as were Griffey and Randy) by the time of the magical year of '01.

I enjoy going to other Reds matchups for the experience, but I'm not a fan of the team...and I really hate the color red.
I dare you to go to Cleveland wearing a t-shirt with Florida Marlins 1997 World Series Champions on it.

White Sox. Grew up in Pilsen. Is there really any other choice?

Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

The results are pretty much as expected, but I'm surprised to only see one Dodgers fan so far.

I know, I was a punk kid back then, and didn't root for any of the MN teams (and didn't really care much for baseball at all).

Phiilies
mostly due to living there my entire life but also because I fell in love with them in
the early 70's.

Probably was Willie Montenez then they Got Dave Cash and he said Yes We Can! in '74.
Also Mike Schmidt became a star then too, loved watching him play.

Also there was this game in '76

and this one in '79
http://www.baseball-reference.com/bo...97905170.shtml
^ Pete Rose's first season with the Phils.
they were 24-10 at that game and it was all down hill from there, ended up in 4th.

My love affair with the game began as a boy when Louisville became the AAA affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.

It was an easy choice to continue following these guys as they were called up to the big leagues.
St. Louis Cardinals for me.

Mine is similar to yours. I grew up in Louisville watching the Redbirds and then seeing some of them go to the Majors. Then I attened college in St. Louis, and if I wasn't a Cards fan before then there is no possible way to not pull for them in this city. The fans truly do love their team here and it is ultra infectious.

Opening Day Bandwagon Bump

I'm a diehard White Sox fan, but I think I'm going to pick an NL team to follow closely. I was a fan of the Expos, but that didn't turn out too well. I think I'll root for the Brew Crew this year since I'm already a fan of Greinke and Braun.

Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

Grew up attending Cardinals and Brewers games, but became fascinated with the Roger Maris story and Yankees history so have been following them since my early teens.

A distant second are the Angels.

But the only games I'll watch on TV are the Dodgers. Even though I'm not an L.A. native, there's something hypnotic about Vin Scully's announcing.
