AL or NL

I had to vote AL. I love the Braves and I'm an old school NL West fan, but now I play in an AL-only fantasy league and so I'm tainted. I probably focus 95% on AL happenings and 5% on the Braves.
I also like the Red Sox a lot, the Cubs a little, and I really hate the MFYs and Diamondbacks.

Is real baseball. The American League, with its lack of hitting pitchers and pinch-hitters, sucks. In my opinion, that's not true baseball.

I like the NL better

I am a life long Tiger's fan, so had to vote AL. I can probably still name all the Tigers on the 1968 championship team, now that was baseball. Now I dislike the DH, and really hate the interleague play. I have generally lost interest in baseball over the years for various reasons, among them the strike and now cost. The day of $1.50 bleacher seats are long gone. Last time I went to a Dodger game, maybe 5 years ago, a 12 ounce Coors light was $3.
Now the tainted records with steroid use has really put me off. Can we have an asterisk please?

NL being a Padres homer, but I am from CT and yes was and still am a MFyankee fan. I can't help it. Pads in NL Yanks in AL.
People either love or hate MFY. I don't care. I am a hard core fan of each team.
98 WS tough but I rooted for the home team in each game.

I'd rather watch a good 2-1 NL game than an 11-8 AL game.
But for some reason I am a huge Twins fan so I pay a little more attention to the AL.

Got to be the AL. Even though I now live in Wrigleyville I grew up in NY as a Yankees fan. Ironically I started liking them in the late 80's when Steinbrenner sold off all of the young talent for such fading stars as Jesse Barfield. NL baseball just doesn't do it for me, but there is possibly no greater place to watch a game than at Wrigley.

Wrigleyville is sweet. If I had to live in Chicago, that is where I would live. Walking distance from all those bars and baseball. I loved it when I stayed with a friend.

You honestly can't beat it here, Morgan. My buddy who lives in the shadow of Fenway and I used to have this running dispute about which place was better to live . . . until he came to visit last year during the Yankees series. There is no doubt that I live in the best neighborhood in Chicago, especially for a baseball fan.
