You all know I hate MLB, but every year I try my hardest to get into it. I actually like it in the early months, but the season just drags on too damn long. That said, I'm going to give it a try again. My biggest problem is that when I have tried to get into it in the past, it has always been with the Rangers and disappointment and then apathy quickly ensues. I'll probably go to quite a few Ranger games since I'm up here, but I want a team to follow.
I tried the Yankee thing, but it was everything I could do just to stomach the thought of following the evil empire. And eaglchick, I know you'll read this, you can take the Rays and shove 'em, but I am considering the Mets. I'm kinda thinking maybe the Atlanta Braves. I'm from North Florida which is Brave-heavy territory. Don't suggest the Stros because their suck rivals that of the Rangers. I could maybe get into the Dodgers, especially if they keep Manny. Boston is certainly a possibility, and as much as I hate to give D08 the satisfaction, so are the Cubs.
Anyway, I need suggestions and reasons backing them.
