    • Wow! Our boys must have down some geritol and red bull for the opener
      against the Rangers. I haven't seen that kind of offensive explosion in awhile.
      Lee didn't look great but I'll take the W to start the year out.

      • And...... Trout homers in his first at bat
        This sig will not change until The Browns win the Super Bowl... So get real used to it.

                  Something with the Brewer's pitching staff. I think that's 5 out of the last 6 games have been shut outs.

                    This was no joke... I am pretty good with baseball trivia and only pulled a 50%.

                        • Anyone want to go in on the purchase of a little painting with me? We can time share.



                          It's a Norman Rockwell called "The Rookie" and its going to be auctioned at Christies. Estimates are that it will bring between 20 - 30 million.

                                  • Fire Scioscia's fat ass already!! How do they start this bad every freaking year?!! It's the same thing every game, two outs no one on, and they get three hits and scores runs, Angels counter with a couple lead off hits, then strike out three times in a row...

                                    So over scioscia.

                                        somewhere close to that number in this series. They looked good,well rounded
                                        club. They can hit,the pitching may be a little suspect though. Us,our bats have
                                        gone into dormancy,shocker! Next three against the Fish.

                                            I have a feeling there will more four game skids in the future. LOL

                                                        • Still at 9, they are in a delay in top of 7th last I looked.

                                                          Edit: it's ten, Mesoraco tied the game in the bottom of 6th. Game is suspended.

                                                              Sucks he gets a ND and Avilan gives up 5 runs but gets the win. Kimbrel was unavailable due to shoulder soreness.

                                                                Yeah braves went back to back to back in the top of 8, then Philly loaded bases with no out bottom 8 and took lead on a hr. Braves loaded bases with no outs in 9th then Uggla hit a grand slam. Strange that neither Pappelbon nor Kimbrel were used.

                                                                                  went yesterday to milwaukee for the cubs game. very impressed with the ballpark and the brew crew. they have speed, power, pitching, and defense. spectators were ok--a couple really doughy drunk rednecks talking shit and screaming in our ears as they went to the bathroom/concessions.

                                                                                  they tailgate at brewers games. and they do it right. i had never seen a tailgate at a ball game before. picnic at old comisky but never a tailgate with grills and the whole bit. it was a very cool atmosphere in the parking lot--like 3 hours before game time.

                                                                                  i highly recommend checking out miller park.

Honestly, this is 1 of my favorite sports things that happened outside a game, ever. If you haven't heard it before, do yourself a favor and listen.

I should let Kershaw get off the DL before I say that, but I just don't think anyone can touch Fernandez. I feel like the Braves must be regretting that fight with him last year, because he has EMBARRASSED them his last two starts.

When they have 70 wins at the end of the season this will all be forgotten. Besides he'll only be on the Marlins for a few more years and then they'll trade him or he'll leave in FA.
