Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I have always liked the black uniform. I remember when they first introduced them, I couldn't wait to get the black cap.

Lovely tribute to Gary Carter before the Met game today. Surprised that they didn't formally retire his number, but they've already effectively done it - #8 has never been issued since his time - so I guess that's enough. (Plus they may be saving it for when they retire #31.)

And am I the only one who actually liked the black Met uniforms?

Oh well. At least they won Opening Day, again.

I think the Mets look good with black. Not every team can pull it off, but it works for them.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I have always liked the black Mets gear. I wish I could get the black cap in an 8 1/2, but the cap company doesn't sell it in that size. I could only get the blue one. Which isn't bad, I'd just like to have a cap that matches my black jacket.

The one Mets uni I don't like is the off-white with pinstripes. I shouldn't say that, I know it's traditional, I just like the pure black and pure white ones.

Eh? I know that there aren't a lot of Mets fans here, but surely most people who follow baseball have at least a passing familiarity with Gary Carter? Both from the '86 team, and also especially since his death has been in the sports news lately.

^ Gary was one of those "Cub killers". Always scratching out a hit to win the game and breaking our hearts in the process.

I wasn't saying Gary Carter was an unknown (absolutely not ), I was pointing out that you talking about a "lovely tribute" without actually saying what that tribute was made it a somewhat meaningless statement in context.

^ And the Cubs have picked right up....with poor relief pitching.
I basically spent the entire offseason making sure I had nonexistent expectations for the team this year, so my blood pressure is still under control.

Fun fact of the day: Chone Figgins currently has the highest OPS on the Mariners.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

And last night's Rockies game showed the Rox that I know and love. Way to be inneffective guys. Oh yeah, a 49 year old as your #2 pitcher is brilliant.
Not a knock against Jamie Moyer, he seems like a decent guy, and had a pretty good spring, but he's old enough the be the Dad of some of the other guys in the rotation. Maybe coaching would be a better idea.

Pinstripes and blue hats are the best in my book. I wish they'd have a blue alt instead of black, sorta like their BP jerseys.

I have the black cap with blue brim with the 2000 World series logo on it. It was what they had in the store when I went to get it.

I grew up on the pinstripes, so the black always seemed odd. I don't miss the 1980s pullovers with the racing stripes though.

I totally agree with you, I would love an alternate blue jersey as well.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Mother of God. I don't expect the Cubs to win games this season, but I was hoping that Sveum would actually break them of their habit of swinging at the first fucking pitch of every goddamned at-bat. Motherfuck. I hope Theo gives a $2 million bonus to the first Cub to get 50 BBs this season.

Edit: Jesus goddamn Christ. Zimmerman threw 48 pitches in his first five innings against the Cubs. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

^ They managed to hold onto the lead today.

I've been waiting for Smardzija to be in the rotation since they drafted him. He did great today except for those unearned runs.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

So the Giants open the season being swept and had a game they SHOULD HAVE WON but choked it away. New year, same team. I already feel bad for the pitchers.

And the Twins get swept by Baltimore. Hard to stay optimistic after that start.

I'm thinking in fantasy baseball my new strategy should be to pick up all the Twins' opposing pitchers that are available each week.

This is the best start I could have hoped for them. I love how they're still riding last September's momentum without skipping a beat.
