Of course, the World Series is probably out of reach for the Bosox AND the Yanks.
How? Both teams won in Detroit. Boston won at Comiskey, and whilst the Yankees lost there, they did sweep the Wrong Sox at home. Then there's the AL West winners, who will have the worst record of any team in the postseason. If, heaven forbid, I were a Yankee fan, I wouldn't be unduly scared of any of that lot.
Comiskey Park closed in 1990.
New Comiskey Park's last year was 2002.
Why are you bringing up the past? We're talking about THIS season.
Hey, Ted Williams hit a home run at Comiskey.
I know. I just hate corporate ballpark names. Will always be New Comiskey to me.
Me too. I hate them ALL.
Viagra Park, Ronco Field, Welch's White Grape Juice Arena, Derek Jeter Cologne County Stadium, Deep-Fried Twinkies Stadium...
They're all stupid.
I'm glad Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, Shea Stadium, even a new park like Oriole Park at Camden Yards haven't taken the sponsorshpi plunge. They day we lose THOSE ballparks is the day that baseball is no longer the national past-time, it will be nothing more than a business. It really IS already, but we still have some old traditions that keep it the game we love, like those fields, high socks, wooden bats, hot dogs...
We've lost so many great staduims (or at least names) to this corporate crap...Mile High Stadium, Candlestick Park, Tiger Stadium, even the unthinkable...Comiskey. :(

* 120 million would pay the entire team salaries of the Cincinatti Reds and Arizona Diamondbacks, Combined. Arroyo anybody?
* 120 Million would pay for the Florida Marlins 8 times over, not to mention they even had a running start (pun) on a few of their players too ..
anybody have any other suggestions?
