2017 MLB Year's end

Spence, can a Cincinnati fan get excited about Cleveland? More HR hit this year than ever...I dislike changing the equipment and then comparing stats...

Not really, I will watch them. I don't see Boston beating them. I was in Boston over Labor Day and saw the Sox play that Monday night. Boston doesn't have the sticks to beat Cleveland. They weren't very impressive at all. The stadium, though, is a must see. If you ever go, go early and take the tour. We got go on the field during BP and also sit on the Green Monster. Game seats on the monster are ridiculous so the tour is a better way. You just have to make sure you pay attention because balls come to you very quick on there. The old stadium flavor is there, much like Wrigley. They even have some of the original wooden seats in some areas. We sat just on the first base side of home plate in row H, I wanted to sit on the Monster but the tickets up would have been in the thousands and while it would have been a cool experience, it wasn't worth the price. Our seats were better to watch the game.

Baseball season for a Reds fan basically ended before it started this year. They are an adventure to watch. I did get to see them unveil Pete Rose's statue are the ball park and almost the whole Big Red Machine was there to honor him so that was cool. I got to see Tony Perez get his statue last year so the last couple of years I got to revisit my youth a little bit.

As a fan of baseball, I was rooting for them to get to 26 but 22 is still an amazing accomplishment, even more so in today's game. As a fan of the Cardinals, I was also wanting them to win the World Series last year, so clearly my rooting for them doesnt help in the least :lol: I will agree about the home run numbers not meaning much. If they want to push that and quit with the time limit rules tho I guess I'll take the trade off.

Boston is one of those cities I would love to go visit, just have not done it yet. I've always been fascinated with history and there is no shortage of it in that area. Finally got to NYC and Philly couple years ago, and will again this Dec. I'm working my way up towards the Northeast, very gradually.

If you ever decide to go to Boston let me know. I can give you tips about the city and how to get around. You don't want a car there at all. You will pay the price of a plane ticket just in parking fee's. Boston is the city to go to for history. It is fairly easy to get around and the food is awesome.

The Yankee Cleveland series is good. Cleveland made 4 errors tonight. The weather has been good. The TV camera coverage is terrible. They show people picking their nose in the dugout when the ball has been hit. Constant prattle...maybe I should be an announcer.

The Evil Empire is alive and well. A Dodgers-Yankee series would be like my childhood in the 50's
