    Been watching some, lately...

    I was reading about the 1980's Cardinals the other day. Played in 3 World Series (1-2). Winning the only one they probably were favored to lose

    Anyway this 1987 WS was about as "boring" as a 7-game series could be. Home teams won each game and I believe no scoring in the 8th or 9th innings. I think only 1 run scored in the 7th and overall only a couple lead changes. Each game was decided early on

    Also - Twins admitted in the 2000s that they screwed with the fans within the stadium to help their hitters and hurt opponents

    That Twins crew won two seven game series by winning every home game and losing every road game. The series against the Braves in 1991 was a true classic.

    Both series were 3-2-3 format, Twins found themselves down 2-3 both times

    Yah 1991 is ridiculous. 5 - 1 run games. 3 extra inning games. Rare series winner was outscored.

    Yea, I was just looking that up. That's crazy. 8-0 at home, 0-6 on the road.

    87 Twins RS: 56-25 at home, 29-52 on the road.
    91 Twins RS: 51-30 at home, 44-37 on the road.

    The Twins relatively new ballpark may be better for baseball and the fan experience in general; but it could cost them rings.

    I saw Randy Johnson pitch live a couple times. It's different than on TV; in RL, his pitches looked totally effortless.

    Also, Tony Gwynn was great. He hit over .300 in all of his 19 seasons following his .289 rookie season. And of course baseball went on f'ing strike when he was about to hit .400 for the first time since Teddy Ballgame.
