2014 MLB Season: How Many Pitchers Will Die For Our Sins?

The season has technically started, but it really gets going this weekend. Because of that, I guess it's time to get the thread going too. I hope the Giants do well this year but I think the Dodgers win not just the National League, but the world series. Should be a fun, long season and I can't wait till it finally gets started.

Also, I wanted to start this thread with a question. Why is spring training as long as it is? It seems like we all wish the season would be shorter and not end in November, yet we have a month worth of meaningless baseball and this final week feels like a waste more than anything else. Is it a pitcher thing? Is it a hitters thing? Is it both? Is it just revenue for Florida and Arizona? Wish the season started this week.

I thought the Dodgers/Diamondbacks series in Australia was pretty cool. The Aussie fans seemed really into it (and very much Dodger-centric, judging from the crowd). And Sydney Cricket Ground worked surprisingly well as a baseball venue.

I loved the scenery. I know playing in Australia was not really popular and it's taking away from how people feel about the opening day, but I was really happy for real baseball, and being able to listen to Vin Scully talking Australian History.

Re: 2014 MLB Season

I feel sorry for Nats fans, with Doug Fister being on the DL already.

Also because he looks exactly like Agent Smith.

On a completely unrelated matter: John Sterling bingo.

Let another horrible Jays season begin and yes, I'll still be watching even if it's a train wreck.

The Cubs, having no ace, are theretofore saved from having an ace go down with TJ!

They'll make up for it by having Soler, Baez, Bryant and Rizzo get mauled by wolves.

Yeah, way to jinx the Cubs. Now they'll never win the WS.

Brian Wilson imploding is always a beautiful site to behold now. Really do not like the guy, or his stupid beard. He's become a parody of himself.

I know the Twins will suck, and I have hopes for the Rockies, but the incompetent leadership on that team never fails to let me down, so I suspect they'll end up losing 85 - 90 games.
I really need a new team, and I like most of the deals that Seattle has made this off season, so in the likely event they do well, I may have to jump on that bandwagon.

I'm hoping the Twins will win at least 71 games. I put a bet on them when I was in Vegas last month and the over/under was 70.5 games. Probably should have bet the under, but I'm a Twins fan and bet with my heart.

Go Twins!!

Happy "real" opening day all. Love days like this, for any sport. For some reason though, baseball's opening day resonates more than, day, NHL's opening day. Hopefully the Giants start well with a good win tonight. Mad Bum deserved the ace role and I have a feeling he will deliver.
