The Diamondbacks are going to the world series in only their fourth year of existance!!! Who do you guys want to see the D-Backs go up against? Yanks or the M's? I personally want to see 'em go up against the yankees, just to see how they match up, since the D-Backs have played the Mariners before. But who do you want?

Actually when it comes to baseball I'm just a fan of the game (since I have a huge baseball card collection I root for players more than I root for teams). Obviously I follow the Cubs but for the most part I put my money on the team with the most talent (which is obviously not the Cubs!).
On the one hand I do want the Yanks to continue their destiny but on the other hand, one of the reasons I also want the D-Backs to win is because Mark Grace is on their team. Grace has been a long time Cubbie and I think it would be nice for him to finally have a ring. He's waited long enough from his torturous years in Chicago.
By the way I figured you wouldn't appreciate that joke .
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

I hate the Yankees. Despise them.*
I hope they win.**
(*-born a Red Sox fan, ended up working with and immensely fond of the Cleveland Indians. Find me two baseball teams and towns that hate the Yankees more than Boston and Cleveland.)
(**-as much as I hate the Yankees, I hate high bankroll 'instant-champs' from charm-less, fair weather fan packed sun belt cities that have neither proven that they're baseball towns or earned the heritage that the Series demands.)

Well folks, it looks like the yanks are coming to PHX. I say "bring it"! But I was thinking, If (when) the yankees start playing the D-Backs, will the D-Backs be looked upon as the "bad guys" because everyone seems to want the Yankees to win so New York can "heal" in a way and if the Diamondbacks win, it will further damages the spirits of New Yorkers? It seems that way to me. Oh and by the way, GO D-BACKS!!!!!!!
