I love baseball and I also root for the Red Sox. I have been a fan since I was very little. Big Papi is my favorite too.. He just seems like such a nice guy (a relative of mine met him and said when he went up to him to say hello he was very gracious..) I hope Manny gets his act together and makes it down to spring training by the deadline they gave him (March 1st).

What do you think about Curt Schilling becoming a free agent? Do you think he'll end up staying with the Sox?

Go Red Sox - Big Papi is ready to roll again this year...will Manny show? Probably isn't Manny just being Manny...again..lol
Big Papi does seem very sincere, I think he's awesome. I don't know about Manny...I think it just "Manny being Manny" same sh!t different day...lol I think he'll be there. As for Schilling...well..hmm I can't decide for sure but I think he'll end up staying...I hope.

GO TIGERS!!! I am A huge Tigers fan and they are gonna go all the way this year. Magglio Ordonez is my favorite player, but I am just a fan of right fielders in general. I'm not so sure how I feel about Gary Sheffield joinging our team though. But good luck this year Red Sox, I hope you kill the Yankees!

I'm afraid I root for your baseball nemesis. I love, love, LOVE the New York Yankees. My favorite player is Derek Jeter because he hustles, even if it is a hop to second base - he runs the play out. My favorite picther was always Andy Pettitte, so I'm very happy to see him back in the fold. Now, if only we could get rid of A-Rod. Any takers?

Aaaahhhhh I hate Jeter...lol He always has that smug, "I'm better than the rest" look on his face... He does play well though..hehe I have a picture for you...It's all good. I can't wait for the season to begin. We've had season tickets on the third base line since 1967.

That's not Jeter though, that's A-Rod. When he deliberately threw his arm out to make the ball pop out. Totally classless move. Everything on there is correct about A-Rod, and I try never to say a bad thing about a Yankee, so you know how serious I am. LOL

Yes I did, what a shame right at the start of training. For those that haven't heard. 3B Sean Burroughs has gotten his Mariners career off to a rousing start. Burroughs, it seems, separated his shoulder while slipping and falling on a fishing trip in San Diego late last week. An MRI revealed a sprain of the AC joint and the team now says he'll spend the next week to 10 days rehabbing at his San Diego home, then be re-examined.

I watched baseball few years ago because my brother liked baseball, I still remember the world series in 2004 when the boston red sox won 4 games in a row to beat the New york Yankees and won the title, it was the only team in baseball history which could have a comeback victory in a seris down 0-3. So are there any big changes for the red sox this year??

I'm awful, as I am not into sports of these kinds. My husband loves them all, not me.

Well baseball is the only sport I really like. I think it's because I was at every game when I was a kid and my family still has the same seats as 1967.. I think it's found it's way into my blood.
