While it would be sorta neat to see the Disastros make it to the Series, I can't summon much interest in baseball now that both the Red Sox and the Yankees are out. I have some mild dislike for the California Anaheim Angels of Metropolitan Los Angeles (or whatever they're calling themselves these days), but zero interest in the White Sox or the Cardinals.
Disappointing as the Yankees loss was, it warmed my heart to see Gay-Rod fail again. That guy is going to get run out of New York on a rail before it's all said and done, and I will buy a ticket to see it happen.
Now that John Hart is out and Doogie Howser is running the show in Arlington, I think there's lots to be positive about regarding the formerly-red-shoed Rangers. If at least one of the DVD boys works out, and they sign some pitching in the offseason, and the bullpen can find some of the magic from 2004, next year could be a lot of fun. Three and half months until pitchers and catchers report!
