you seem to be very close minded on this topic. there are thousands of people that would die for a chance to play in tampa. I would have to say you are the minority when you would choose not to play if your only option was to play in tampa or not play.

I think the point is...there shouldn't be a cap without revenue sharing

Since there won't be revenue sharing there won't be a cap.  A cap by itself is stupid. 

Players would play in Tampa if they had the money to spend.  Since they do play in a small market in a crap stadium with a horrible they'll never compete.  But if there was revenue sharing/salary cap in place they and every other team would have a chance.  I don't see why people would be against that, its is part of the reason the NFL (which really can't be compared to baseball economics) is so exciting.  Every year your team has a chance to go all the way as the Bucs and Panthers and Rams have shown over the last 4 years.

I'm the close minded one even though more people agree w/ me that Tampa is a crap team w/ a crap stadium in a crappy part of Florida?  And I'm also the close minded one when myself and others have given you reason that a cap won't work?  AND I'm the close minded one because I wouldn't play in Florida yet you claim thousands would?

I'm surprised at how poorly St. Louis has been playing so far.  After two incredible league championship series, the world series has been a major letdown so far.  I was hoping for something a little more competitive than this.  St. Louis comes back home and almost gets shutout?  That's weak.

So, anyone want to place bets on whether we'll see another miracle comeback from 3-0 down?   :P

GO RED SOX!

Dang, Pedro looked good tonight.  I was worried for the Sox pitching after they were so beat up (and the debacle in game 1 with all those runs scored), but man they are pitching on fire now...

Giddy with excitement and yet still nervous.  I don't expect the Cards to go quietly into the night.  For some reason I still think this is going 6 games, but would love to be wrong.

Go Red Sox, just one more win.  Bring it on home, boys.

I agree.  This series, with all its hype, has been a tremendous disappointment thus far.  But I said it at the start of the playoffs: If the Cards pitching holds up, they will win the World Series.  Thus far, not one of their starters has made it past the 5th.  Result?  0-3 hole.

My hats off to all of you long suffering and now relieved and joyous Red Sox fans.  Being a Vikings fan and hearing year after year from the Green and Gold Cheese Brains I know a little of what you have suffered.  Granted, 43 years is only half of 86 years but having your team be so good for so long and have them not win it all is something that I keep the faith in, some day my team will finally win the big one and watching the World Series has reminded me of that.  Tip one back for me and enjoy every minute of it :)

Congrats to the Red Sox Nation!  Now they just have to kill that goat in Chicago...  :-X

This series, with all its hype, has been a tremendous disappointment thus far.

Most definitely.  Aside from the Sox finally lifting their supposed "curse" and a little bit of excitement in game 1, this series was a complete and total bore.  One of the worst ever IMO.  The Cardinals were absolutely pathetic, beyond the point of just "good pitching beats good hitting", though that certainly played a part in it.  But the Red Sox have just been unstoppable the last couple weeks in winning 8 in a row.

But congrats to Beantown and all of it's long suffering fans.  Must be nice to get that monkey off your back!

Boston Red Sox - 2004 World Series Champions!  I can't believe I actually just wrote that.  It's all still a blur and the full brunt of it hasn't hit me yet.  I'm sure it's going to hit me hard suddenly during the day and I'll fully realized what my team just accomplished.

Thank you, you bunch of idiots!  Congratulations Boston Red Sox - 2004 World Series Champions.
