MLB Culture Shock

I haven’t blogged in a bit mainly because I don’t fully understand what is happening in baseball.  How in the world do the Tampa Bay Rays have the highest winning percentage in all of baseball at .610?

I don’t know.  There are few things we as fans can control, even with all the predictions and expectations that exist at the beginning of each season.  One thing we can control though, is the starting team of the AL and NL in the All-Star game.  Considering the games now count for a GIANT prize, should this still be?  And if so, are fans truly taking advantage of the opportunity?  I think not.  And why aren’t fans of teams in the NL, for instance, voting for no-names to start for the AL?  I mean, we want to win right?  Home field advantage in the Series is quite the prize right?  

I may add more to this later this evening.  For now though, go Cubs against the Giants…fans need to show up and vote our Cubs into the starting lineup…I’m about to do some more voting for our Cubs…and for some scrubs in the AL.  Couldn’t hurt right?

Go Cubs Go!
