Not a MLB fan anymore, really, but would love to see JV (Justin Verlander) win a World Series. If there was ever a more deserving player, it is he. We hated to see him go here in Detroit late this year, but not his fault, blame goes to very poor owner/management decisions including a mediocre manager. Mike Illitch was the classiest of class owners, but the kids ain't got a clue. Mike played minor league ball and would have been great to see him win a World Series. JV is in the classy gentleman group as well and will be in the Hall of Fame one day. I hate everything to do with LA, and only rooted for the Dodgers when Kirk Gibson, also a former Tiger, took them to a championship. The two best teams are in and that is a plus -no one falling in bassackwards via wild card. Also not fan of inter-league play nor Houston going to the American League,,,,not the same and never will be...some reasons why I don't follow anymore...but will be rooting for JV & The Astros...
