    Am I from Boston ? No. From Massachusetts ? No. From New England ? Nope. I just plain HATE Los Angeles, that's all. It is the home of overpaid, spoiled brat, Trump-bashing movie stars. The home of millions of illegal aliens - more than any city in America.

    It's the home of KTLA, the liberal TV station that deliberately distorted the Rodney King arrest, by editing the tape, and caused the LA riot (54 people died, thousands injured, $ Billion damage).

    And if all that isn't enough, it is California. One of only 6 states declaring itself as a sanctuary state for illegal aliens. Home to Governor Jerry Moonbeam Brown, and loudmouth Attorney General Xavier Beccera.

    OK. That's it. Kick ass. Beat the Dodgers.

    So you're going with the ultraconservative Bay State. Good thinkin'.

    Too bad it never filtered through your obsession lens that baseball ain't politics. And is expressly there as an escape FROM politics.

    That said --------- Go Sawx. :eusa_dance:

    Eh,

    The DH sucks. Its the biggest example of big government odd rules in a sport I can think of.

    That said, the dirty Dodgers suck.

    Point well taken. I think of it more as a Cult of Ignorance thing, i.e. first the myth spreads that "pitchers can't hit", then they go out of the way to materialize the myth. Self-fulfilling prophecy. I say if you're out there on defense, then after the third out goddam it pick up a bat. And conversely if you do pick up a bat then after that third out you need to be back out on the field. If you can't do both you ain't no ballplayer.

    I don't have any emotional attachment for or against the Dodgers but I wouldn't mind seeing Chase Utley cap his extraordinary career with a dramatic moment.

    Last time the Dodgers played the Red Sox in the World Series, the Redsox featured a young stand-out pitcher named George Herman Ruth.

    Hard to imagine, isn't it?

    Boston hates your type of trash a lot more than you hate Los Angeles.

    For me, baseball is whatever I see it to be. You are entitled to look at it your way as well.

    I don't care what Boston thinks. it's a liberal place too, which I don't especially like, but LA is the pit of America. I'll root for ANYBODY that plays against them.

    And for you call me "trash" from what I said in the post you quoted, just shows that you are complicit with KTLA and what they did, you support illegal/immoral sanctuary cities, and all the overpaid, spoiled brat, mouthy movie stars, which puts you firmly in the trashbag of America.

    The DH adds more hitting, fielding, and baserunning to the game. Not having it has the game being more like managers playing a chess game. I'll go with the former of the 2, but some people might like the latter.

    Batting averages of National League pitchers are generally FAR below that of non-pitchers, and always have been. To call what is confirmed by consistent statistical fact for over 100 years, a "myth", is absurd.
