Boy would I hate to live in Canada

I feel bad for even directing you to this article, but give it a read and lemme know what you think. Personally, it makes me think two things. 1) Being a Blue Jays fan must really suck, and 2) Dave Perkins must hate his life. Nihilists should not be sports writers.

    Well, he’s right, in this case. The big problem I have with the article is his failure to point out that the wild card is just as likely to create a great race as it is to take one away.

      I’m not saying he’s wrong. I’m saying, “who thinks that, and then writes it for an audience?”

      And yes, we needn’t look further back than 2005 to see a great division/wild card race.

        I guess. I think the point is good, but I agree that the tone of the article is overly negative.

        But can you just imagine, if there were no wild card what NY and Boston would be like right now? It would be absolute insanity (much like 1978, I assume – wish I was alive then). If the article were written from that perspective, it would have been much better.

    YES, it does suck to be a Blue Jay fan. Ownership cares more about selling more cellphones, getting us sucked into buying HD boxes & service charge us to death rather than field a winner. Until Godfrey (who thinks he’s God) leaves & takes Riccardi (going into year 7 of his 5 year plan) with him, there is no hope for us diehard baseball fans. I went to more games in Detroit, Cleveland, NYC, Pittsburgh & Philadelphia to watch real teams play real games in real stadiums than I did in Toronto. Oh how I wish the Expos were still here.
