43. Wow
Edited on Thu Jun-28-07 11:49 PM by Zavulon
The Penny-Peavy matchup is one I'll be trying to catch, too. I hope it's shown on my east coast cable package.

I do love defensive games and would much prefer to see a hard-fought 2-1 or 3-2 games of manufactured runs than a 14-9 slugfest showing aging sluggers teeing off against pitchers who have no reason being out of Triple-A ball.

I don't consider "buying a winner" to be a con, I consider it part of the modern game like you do (if your team doesn't do it, another will, and I loathe the idea of salary caps) but Rupert Murdoch...

That wouldn't be my deciding factor, though. Truth be told, all four of my current "finalists" are AL. Sad as it is, I'm leaning towards teams that didn't make life rough for Montreal - even as much as I detest the DH.
