We are going to have some good series this year, as we do every year. Which one are you looking most forward to? The two in our division is more of a general option for any of the series. Personally, I'm looking forward to battling the Royals this year, because I think we might see some continuation of our last series in Kauffman stadium. However, I'm probably also going to at least one of the Yankee's games, a Cubs game (in the Cell), and a few Twin's games. What's your take?

There isn't anything like the Cubs-Sox series. Especially when we whoop 'em

I'll say the Twinkies. I think we will play the Royals well this year. We always seem to have more trouble with the Twins. If we can get that monkey off our back we'll be OK.

The Cubs? WE OWN THEM! :D:

Jimenez game winning single, Valentin walk off homerun, Rowand's homer to take the lead, Olivo's grand slam in the first (at Wrigley while batting ninth-best moment of his young career thus far.)

I picked Royals, just because the Cubs is a given. I did not pick the Twins because they always win, and even on TV, I can't stand watching games in that dome.

Not to mention the Royals are considered the favorite, and I would love nothing more than to crush their hopes and have them second guessing themselves.

He batted eighth. As usual, the NL pitcher got out of an inning by getting the pitcher to make the last out. I hate watching the pitcher bat.

But didnt Buehrle get an RBI single in that inning or was that in a different part of the game? (or a different game?)

That was the Saturday day game where the Sox almost blew a 7-0 lead.

Especially in years when we don't make the playoffs, it gives at least a littel satisfaction

Well I love the cubs-sox, usually go to at least one of those a year at comiskey. Was at the Jimenez game last year, was fantastic. But was also at the weeknight Twins game, the jose paniagua, game, and I have to say that crowd was positively electric, if it is a close race I think the Twins games will constantly supply the most enjoyable games to watch and go to.

Late next month, I'll be back in the Kansas City area... which means I'll at Kaufman Stadium for all Sox vs Royals games this year...

Can't wait! :gulp:

To be honest, I'm playing "catch up" when it comes to going to MLB games. Until last year, I could count on one hand the number of games I had ever attended. This year I purchased a season ticket for all Royals games. I did this because I'm so starved to watch live MLB. Not to mention getting a great seat 3 rows behind the visitors dugout.

I wonder if I contributed to the "bring Juan-Gone to KC fund"... oh ***.

I'm excited for the battle of the Sox at Fenway in August. I probably won't make it to Chicago this year, but I'll happily make the 2 hour trip to beantown for a weekend series.

As far as watching series on TV, the next one is the one I'm most excited about, so I vote for the opening set at KC. Who was it that said, "You can't win the division in April, but you sure can lose it" ?

Royals in the opener. We need to sweep them and do it convincingly.

It will also be our first look at the 2004 Sox. Therefore, we won't have fallen out of contention yet.

I finally get to see the Sox play in South Florida. I have been here since 95 and the only real chance I get to see them is when they come to Tampa 3 days out of the season(and I am usally in Chicago-weird?). The D-rays don't even count. I will be wearing my sox jersey when I go (to all 3 games). I did were me sox hat at one of the 3 games vs the shulbs in the playoffs last year. The opening series vs the royals should be fun, and we get to go to NYC the 1st weekend of the season.
