Typical Giants. Last year was their first WS victory in SF. They get hot every now and then, but then they go back to mediocrity and the cellar. Been to the playoffs 8 times in 40 years if my stats are correct.

Well hopefully that will change and they'll stay competitive for a while.

I remember seeing a thing on first and 10 a few years back about the MLB moving to Charlotte. I think it was the Marlins and some other team that wanted to move there.

You are right.....first there was talk of the Montreal Expos coming here which are now the Washington Nationals then there was some talk of the Marlins coming here but I don't think it was ever serious. As much as I would like to see it, Charlotte can't support a pro MLB team right now.

Don't forget the Minnesota Twins' bid to come to Charlotte too, although I think that was just a bluff to get Minnesota to spend some money on a new stadium (which they finally got).

Sucks. I remember getting all excited because all the people on ESPN were saying it was a real possibility and Charlotte is the #1 place the MLB wants to put a team. Guess I won't be caring about baseball for a while then.

I've always liked about 3 or 4 teams .. Giants always being the fav due to barry bonds .. Though you can't go wrong with the Cardinals , Cubs , and Twins.

Lot of times if you don't live in a MLB city, it may depend on your age when you started watching.
I always loved playing baseball growing up. It was the thing to do. I remember watching the Series as far back as the 76 one. But not till 80 did I latch on to a team. The Cards.

I have been a loyal fan of them since 1980.
