I'm a baseball fan from Seattle, and primarily ONLY a baseball fan. I can't really explain it; but if a clock or timer is involved, I generally don't give the sport much attention...which eliminates several of them. I've followed the M's since their inception in 1977, and while I loved Edgar Martinez' hitting and Yankee-killer abilities, I detest the DH....such irony, huh?

That said, I'm more a fan of the National League style...which means I like speed, defense, and pitcher's duels. I'll take small ball and a 1-0 game over a 5 HR softball slugfest any day of the week.

Other teams of interest to me are both Sox clubs, Orioles, Marlins, Mets, Pirates, and D-backs. I was a charter season ticket holder for Arizona when I lived there and saw Games 2 & 7 of the 2001 WS. In spite of their 2009 WS victory, my distaste for the Yankees has waned a bit since Steinbrenner morphed out of the picture, or maybe I'm just getting older and don't get as worked up about things like that anymore.
