    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    A-Rod launches Yankees to brink of World Series - Yahoo! News


    ANAHEIM, Calif. – Alex Rodriguez has done something remarkable in every game of his charmed October. CC Sabathia is settling for every time he takes the mound. Together, they've got the New York Yankees within one win of a long-awaited return to the World Series.

    Well, you all already know I'm not a sports fan.........the closest I get to a baseball bat is the one I keep at the head of the bed in case the boogie man gets in during the night.

    Re: Baseball

    SOOOOO happeeeee that our Toronto Blue Jays won the last three games of a five game series to go to the next run. SO okay they lost the first game last night but there is another game in two hours. So, Dear friends, if you hear thunderous yelling in your part of the world, don't panic, it's only me cheering for our Blue Jays!

    The Jays are still alive down a game though. They aren't in their own ball ground next game, so there will be more noise coming from here in this part of Canada! It's a MUST WIN for them the next two games!

    On a sad note, the Blue Jays lost and will not be making it to the World Series. That being said, since Canada has only one Baseball team now as Hockey is more our game, most of Canada stood behind the Blue Jays and may thanks were posted to them via Facebook and other means.

    I've watched the World Series for many years now and it starts tomorrow. I may not watch as I'm all tuckered out from the cheering through the Blue Jays series. I don't know, see how I feel tomorrow when the first game starts. I'll be cheering for the Mets but with less gusto as my gusto need as rest.

    Thanks, Rosie, but my cheering isn't loud enough for the Mets, they are down two games as I wrote in the "World Series" thread.

    THERE'S that sense of humour I know and love! All I can say the Mets need to win tonight as being down three games will be hard to get back even though it does happen. Right now it's two games but the Royals seem to have the momentum.

    I will take my comment to the World Series thread. Just a warning, I may be crying when you click on the thread...or I may just say that the Royals played a great series and it was their time to win.

    The Toronto Blue Jays won their last two games after losing a few in a row. I hope this is the turning point for them.

    Well, a season is 160 odd games long. So if they can't win 2 in a row ...

    I have Faith! I think the second half of the season will be awesome. Yesterday I heard that from their awesome Coach, though he didn't exactly use the word 'awesome', he's more mellow than that.

    Just seen the standings, and if the Blue Jays have a good second half of the season they may get to the playoffs.

    LOVE that photo!
    I didn't see the game today, but they've done pretty good lately. I'm not sure if I'm going to watch the All Star game.
    I decided to check the score of today's game and am still in wide-eyed shock, the Blue Jays lost 19 - 1! Maybe it's better that I didn't see the game, I would still be crying.
