****2008 World Series Tread****

107 posts in this topic

As we are getting closer and closer to the series, we might as well get the ball rolling.

Who are you looking to get there. I hope its a Boston LA show.

I'm looking forward to a TB - LA showdown. I think that would make one heck of a series.

Best if it were Phillidelphia/Tampa Bay. That way we wouldn't have to listen to any Manny stories.

The real story would be if it were LA and BoSox because then you would have a megasuper star (Manny) having his total salary being paid by the team (BoSox)he was trying to beat! Now that would be a story.

Exactly Windy. I made that observation to my wife last night and she thought it would be a great idea. Would make for some decent drama. Imagine Manny hitting a homerun at Fenway for the Dodgers. I would rather see a Rays - Dodgers WS though.

Don't really care about the Senior Circuit but I would not mind watching the Rays go for it. Anybody but an east coast team, and by east coast I mean BoSox or Yankees!

I vote for LA and Boston, just so we can hear all about Manny. Oh boy.

Nice not having the Cubs in the mix,,, they get jammed down my throat in IA. Then again,, been 63 years since they have been in the WS,,, maybe next year?? I think not.

I'd like to see LA play agst Boston and get shut out 4-0 in another show of the dominant league. Even Tampa,, not so sure they can shut out the NL.

Their is a reason Manny hit .396 in the NL. no pitching, no closers,,, Lidge will blow a big one.

Only reason I would pull for LA is Torre,, NY let a great one go.

As long as the Rays go to it I don't care who comes from the NL. The Rays deserve it and have been the best baseball team all year, excluding the Angels, look where they're at now. I'm soooo sick of Boston/New England sports! I think it's pretty cool Joe Torre is back in the Championship series with a different team.

Rays vs Phillies.

I hope the Rays will take it all. A very talented, impressive young team.

I could care less who is in it as long as it is a sweep: the games are always a treat to watch, but the fewer innings I have to listen to Buck and McCarver, the better.

That one over the monster- soon as it hit the bat I knew it was gone. Had to have gone at least 450+

I guess ESPN is going to have to expand it's reach beyond NY and Boston all the way out to Philly!

Man is Tampa looking tough in these playoff's.. I can see a Tampa - Phillies WS and Tampa wining the whole thing. They are going to be a very good team for years to come.

Will the owners keep the team together? Remember, the Florida Marlins have done the same thing twice now, and both teams were pretty much disbanded the next season. I hope they keep these guys together, sick of Yankees/Red Sox every season

the owner of the Marlins purposely put the 97? team together to win a championship and disband them to sort of stick it to MLB if I do recall............I do not think the Rays ownership would get rid of these young talents when most of them are not even up for arbitration let alone the free agency market!

I hear FOX is worried about a Philly / Tampa Bay series. Won't be able to get their coveted 25 share without one of the huge market teams involved. cry

    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
    •   Have you tried to get it out in the water and running it at higher speeds for a while to see if it will clear it's self?
    • Trying to get some idea as to how much I will need to spend to get my 1997 Yamaha 30 hp running again.  The motor sat for nearly 11/2 yrs after I had bought it. before I got around to starting it in Oct.  I followed the owner's manual recommendation to use pre-mix 50:1 gas oil, even though it has oil injection.  Anyway, motor would start(Elec. start), not real quickly, but after starting, would begin to cough and then choke out after a few seconds.This happened repeatedly despite different choke settings, etc.until I finally thought it better to quit fooling with it.  Called a repair place in my hometown outside the metro and he wanted to wait till Spring to look at it.  Said it probably needs new carb kits or carbs and plugs.  Also want him to put in new impeller and lower unit seals. Just wondering what an ave. fair price would be to have that done, provided there isn't anything else wrong?  I live in SW Metro area, but really don't know where to take it around here that I trust anymore. any ideas, help would be greatly appreciated.  Repairman didn't want to give est. without looking at it.  Can't blame him, but don't want to get totally ripped off either.
    •   Actually, I have a case of 17 Beers left that I bought to the GTG last weekend still. Someone drank one! Since I'm not a big Beer guy I have been going over all the things I can make with beer. Beer Cheese soup, beard, fish batter, boil some wild rice venny brats in beer? Or just give it to one of my buddies?
    • Actually no one from either side, none, notta, zip.  
    • Large segments of the right and left are probably wishing they teamed up for Johnson right about now, they might not admit it but if they could go back and change their vote I wonder how many would. One thing is perfectly clear and that is neither Trump or Hillary was the answer. However they more than likely speed up the process of dumping the two party system so it's all good.
    •   If there is no easy money to be made the bad guys will do something else, you won't eliminate them completely unless you legalize everything but maybe they move on to something else. Take away that money and you solve a lot of problems at once for a lot of people. Not much incentive for people to sell hooch these days and it is as simple as that.

      I don't think you realize how bad the war on drugs is, we are talking world wide impact here. Heck in Mexico alone how many people are the cartels killing, it is a blood bath down there. Remove the millions that they make and that motivation is gone. How many police had been killed in drug related incidents in the past 50 years? The overdose deaths and accidents are going to happen no matter what you do, there is no stopping those but maybe you can prevent them with better treatment programs. You also have a massive prison population with large numbers of them incarcerated for drug crimes, now I'm now about letting violent offenders free but the rest of them are worth a look on a case by case bassi. Then you look at all of the above and all how all of their families have been affected by it. If you want to start helping people you need to start by ending the war.
