Youth is served

Two teams with rosters full of twenty-somethings battle for a World
Championship. The Rays youngsters have led one of the most remarkable
one-year turnarounds in baseball history, while Phillies’ young nucleus
has been groomed for this moment.

Rays fans have never been
witness to anything like this, and most Phillies fans under 30 weren’t
alive the last time their team won it all. This is a place for the
under-30 crowd to gather and talk about the Fall Classic and their
fellow youngsters on display on the field.



Ah, the spirit of youth. Glad I still have some of it. Go youngins!

Imagine how dominant the Rays would be if Cliff Floyd and Troy Percival were under 30. Actually Floyd would still be getting injured. Oh well. No Jamie Moyer jokes yet?


The youth movement in baseball is alive! Look at Tampa, Florida, Philly, Milwaukee, LA Dodgers! All sucessful teams with a large amount of young players contributing on their rosters.

Does this include teens

mlbwhiz: YES (sadly, not me, though). It’s the official gathering place for the under-30 crowd during the World Series. Jimmy Rollins makes it by one month!


It’s gonna be a great World Series with this infusion of young talent from Hamels, Utley, Howard, and Rollins to basically the entire Tampa roster minus Cliff Floyd and Dan Wheeler. If only the Yankees could get scouts like Philly and Tampa does, tisk tisk.

I think that we should have an in-depth discussion the one and only young gun… JAIME MOYER.


P.S. I have his baseball card from 1987

Cool blog! I’ve certainly seen the youth movement as a Padres fan. We were almost overtaken by young guys, but, alas, it did not rescue us from a dismal season!

We have a new entry up (the front page of mlblogs links you to only this entry) and will be commenting all night on the game!

Kaybee, don’t worry. The Rays were terrible last year and look what happened.

Poor Jaime Moyer. He must feel so old. Young at heart, right?
