But then the Yanks, the most classic of classic teams, would also have to return to former glory ... i.e. winning tons of championships.

not in the glory days of the aughts and teens in the early twentieth century, they didn't. not in the fifties, when the dodgers beat them. not in the doldrums of the eighties, when they flat-out sucked and the tigers were good.

Ah, the Tigs... you know, with that young rotation, I'm rooting for this year but they could very well be fantastic in the upcoming seasons.

*gets starry-eyed*

Well, they made it to 6 World Serieseses in the 1920's and won 3 of them.

They went to 8 World Serieseses in the 1950's and won 6 of them. I hate the Yanks, but holy shit, that is absolute dominance which will never be seen again.

And really, I only hate the modern day Yanks. I loved Gehrig, Mantle, Maris, Joe D, Billy Martin, et all.

I'm going to puss out of this argument entirely by noting: Serieseseassssesessss.

T

Nah, there's no argument. It's just a matter of which era a person thinks of as the golden days of baseball, or glory days. Whichever.

I'm not a baseball historian, but my favorite era happens to be the 40's and 50's because of who played during that time, not who won the most championships.

Just so happens that the Yanks owned the 50's just like the Celtics did in the Bill Russell days. Unless that wasn't the 50's. Then pretend I didn't say this.

I'm not sure if you know this, but I really do enjoy your blog a lot. I don't agree with some of your opinions, but I'd read my own shitty blog if I was looking to agree with everything someone says.

beth

i would hope you enjoy it since you seem to read it quite a bit, and disagreement is to be expected.

i appreciate the appreciation, though.

that said: seriessesesssessesssesesseses.
