Midway through every game of the Fall Classic, Major League Baseball distributed a list of the glitterati in attendance that night. The roll...

  3. The Beginning of the Monkey Dynasty?

    Well, much to my dismay, the Angels won the World Series, thanks to Dusty Baker and his bullpen full of chokers. Is this merely the beginning of the new dynasty? Let's face it, they are young and now they have the experience of what it takes to win it all. I see so many similarities between this team and the 1996 Yanks....only the Angels have much better hitters and weaker starters. However... look at their bullpen and you will see a carbon copy of the Yankee squad. They even have their...

  4. The Life of Reilly: 'Back Off or I'll Snap!'

    'Back Off or I'll Snap!' Don't you feel a little sorry for Barry Bonds? True, Bonds has the warmth of a dyspeptic IRS auditor. He dispenses more snarls than twin Dobermans. He's rude, insular and grouchy. And that's on his birthday. But nobody, not even Barry Bonds, deserves a World Series week like he just had. All his life he'd dreamed of getting to one of these babies, and when he did it brought him all the joy of an upper G.I. cleansing. Pitchers walked him like a Fifth...

    Will the 2003 Angels keep their wings or fall back to earth? by Craig A. Rolling, STATS. Inc. Monday, October 28 Updated 2:40 PM EST From ESPN Insider With their Game 7 victory over the Giants Sunday night, the Angels put the cap (halo?) on a truly incredible season. Anaheim's 2002 bag of tricks included an improbable comeback from the brink of elimination in Game 6 of the World Series, an unexpected ousting of the four-time defending AL champion Yankees in the Division Series, and...

  10. Bonds Hype

    Was anybody else sick of hearing the Buck-McCarver couple drooling over Barry Bonds throughout the series? Buck even said Bonds "gets my vote" as MVP - even though, he didn't get a game winning hit, his fielding was knobbish at best and every home run was hit after one side or the other had the game out of reach and he received a fat one from the pitcher. There were at least two Giants that should have been considered over Bonds: Snow and (excuse me while I barf) Lofton.

  11. All-Time Most Painful Losses in the World Series

    I have to tell you something.... this loss by the Giants hurts, not just because they lost, but how they lost it. Being up 5-0 in the 7th inning and 5-3 in the 8th and then lose it? OUCH!!! I don't care how much you don't like a team, losing that way has got to hurt. I'm a lifelong Yankee fan like all of you (most of you anyway ;) but I kind of liked the Giants for some reason. I think it's because Barry's father was a hero of mine as a kid when he played for our Yanks. I also liked the...

    It's been reported that Angel fans set some small fires and that a body was found in the parking lot after the W.S. victory.I wonder how much play the media will give this.We'll just have to show them the proper way to celebrate in 2003.By the way,it is the perfect day for Yankee fans to burn the phone lines and pound that idiot Russo about his Giants.

  18. what is this, romper room?

    Somebody want to rope in these children in the Giants' dugout? Last night one of them narrowly avoided injury at home plate. What on earth was a 4 year old wandering around home plate during a play. What if he got hurt? BTW - All Fox could do was chuckle about this. Don't you have to be 16 or something to a batboy?

  20. A question about fan interference

    Last night as Reggie Sanders was fielding Garret Anderson's bases clearing hit, one or two fans hit him in the back with their thunder sticks. It didn't affect him at all, and he came up with the ball and fired it back right away. But what if the sticks had interfered with him? What if he had been knocked down, or even just slipped as a result of them hitting him? What kind of ruling could the umps make in that situation. Could they send the runners back a base or something if they felt...
