The Mets had a nice win, pounding out 11 runs including a grand slam. Nothing like starting out the season undefeated and first place. Except being tied with Washington. Speaking of which, Bryce Harper hit two solo home runs today.
My two favorite teams tied. Love it. Divided loyalties suck.

And the Rockies lost... I've been a Rockies fan since they started in 1993, I even had season tickets from 96 - 99. I've also been a Twins fan since I was a little kid, but these two teams SUCK and I'm getting sick of putting up with their choke fests. I need to find a new team to root for.
Join the Cubs. At least we choke with style!

Nothing wrong with that, the Nats seam to be on the verge of a dynasty. You never know what the future holds but with what looks like the real deal in Bryce Harper and the young arms like Staussberg. The sky seams the limit with them. If they don't win the NL East, I will be surprised.

It's gonna be a long season for my Cubbies. The only question is who we're trading first, if Garza has any trade value and if anyone will take Soriano's contract?

Though to end this post on an optimistic note. Our boy Samardzija looked great against the Bucs.
Garza's value fell off a cliff with his arm issues at the end of last season, and now he isn't expected to be back with the team until the beginning of May. Unless he comes back and he's pitching like a moon monster in May and June, I don't think the Cubs will move him.

As for Soriano, he isn't going anywhere unless the Cubs eat probably two-thirds of the $36 million still owed to him. His full no-trade protection throws another wrench into the works, because he does not want to leave Chicago.

Rizzo's homer looked absolutely effortless, and it wasn't even a clean bat-on-ball.

A little more square & it would've gone in the river.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Seems very strange opening the season against the Reds.



Extra innings win, Weaver looked pretty good. 3 errors is not going to cut it, though.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Giants played well until Kershaw shocked them with the bat. Then they imploded. I'm not concerned yet, but can we get some runs please. It just seems like they can't figure Kershaw out at all.

Well, there's also the little thing about Clayton Kershaw being really, really good at throwing (and, from today, hitting) a baseball.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Nice to see The Ted packed for once. There were more people at the game last night than there were at the playoff game last year. Dan Uggla, Freddie Freeman, and Justin Upton hit home runs along with some monster hits by Gerald Laird. If he can keep that up, it will make it easier to get rid of injury prone McCann.

It was also nice to see Chris Johnson play well at third. On base three times in his Braves debut. Also, it looks like Uggla lost about 15 pounds. Hopefully he can be at least something like the player he was in Miami.

Yeah, the Cubs 'Lovable Losers' vs. the Rox 'Losers' sounds pretty good to me right now.

Well, there's kind of this little problem of Gerald Laird not being good at baseball.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

No but Evan Gattis is expected to do the bulk of the catching. I think Hudson felt a little more comofortable with Laird which is why he played last night. Gattis has monster power and has hit consistently over 300 in the minors. He also had a ridiculously good Spring hitting 357 with six home runs and 16 RBI to win the "starting catching job." I don't expect Laird to finish the season with Atlanta. Laird is going to get playing time for his ability to be a signal caller behind the plate. His bat will be buried towards the back end of the lineup anyway.

Glad I turned down some free tickets to the Twins opener. Not only did they lost (I didn't expect them to win against Verlander), but it took them 3 1/2 hours in 35 degree weather to do it. The Twins made a lot of changes to their pitching staff this year, but I think that's going to be their weak spot again.

Gattis is a complete headcase and he couldn't hit worth shit in AA last year -- he's never even seen AAA pitchers, to say nothing of major league arms. Beyond that, you underestimate just how much Fredi Gonzalez loves Laird. Gattis will probably get 35 - 40 percent of the starts at most until Brian McCann comes back to continue his slow descent into mediocrity, at which point Gattis is going back to the minors.

And, again, hitting like a freak of nature in spring training is totally meaningless. The Royals have something like a .540 winning percentage in spring over the last ten years, for heaven's sake.
