    They really strengthened their lineup this offseason, but the back of that rotation is not good. I forgot about Austin Jackson.

    But we're past that. I just enough it now because the season is so long it's 'always' a diversion. And I like reading the history. I figured out that I don't want to root for a team (in any sport) that isn't at least an occasional move maker. The hot stove part of baseball is what I like. And I like big name pitchers and hitters doing work.

    I want the glitz and the glam. It's why I hated being a Reds fan. Just bleh. Bland. Irrelevant. The Dodgers are older, bloated, and the team's about to fall apart in the next two seasons. Regardless, they're of the mindset to retool and try.

    Do that work!
    It is calming. Football stresses me out while baseball is a purely joyful experience. My family's life revolves around baseball for a little over 5 months of the year.

    Between my son and daughter they play 110+ baseball/softball games a season and combined with practices we spend a huge chunk of everyday doing something baseball related and when we are home just relaxing the TV is on either the Rockies game or MLB network.

    The cool thing is that even if my kids have a bad game or their team loses I still have a good day if it's spent with the family at the diamond.

    As football declines (for variety of reasons) do you think baseball's popularity will pick back up?

    I don't know. I hope so. It seems like basketball is the popular sport with kids. In talking with kids I've coached and my son's friends it seems like 70% or more of them will tell you that basketball is their favorite sport. I see a ton of kids wearing basketball stuff and very few wearing baseball stuff.

    Baseball gear isn't really fun to wear, aside from the hat. I love the association, but it's a little top heavy as a sport.

    Have you seen baseballism? They make great baseball themed stuff. A ton of shirts and hats. My son wears three kinds of tee-shirts
    70% baseball shirts (most of them from baseballism)
    20% star wars
    10% Simpsons.

    I don't know that he owns a shirt that doesn't fit into one of those categories.

    I’ve thought about going to a few Nashville Sounds games. They’re a Triple A affiliate for Oakland. Should I be an A’s fan?

    They'd be more fun to root for than the Reds. Have you seen/read Moneyball?

    You should go to games, hell yeah.

    I don't know about being an A's fan, though.

    Not if he's worried about selling off players...

    Nashville SC plays at the Sounds ballpark. I went Saturday and it’s a neat stadium. Big screen is guitar shaped.

    Best scoreboard in sports.

    I’ve grown to like the Orioles over the past few years. I just wish they were closer.

    Don't fight your natural affinity for a team... Just go with it. Kind of like dave's sexuality.
