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!!
Seems like a reasonable bet. Isn't the deal basically that every team in baseball is going to win 60 and lose 60, so it's really just the 42 games that seperates the best from the worst? So to win 71 games, all they have to be is not epically bad. Not saying they're going way over that mark, but I'd likely take the over there as well. Not hugely over, but seems reasonable.

This is the first Mets opening day I haven't gone to in a long time. Of course the Mets find the appropriate Mets way of loosing on opening day. Thankfully it's a long season, to suffer for as long as possible.

Cubs - nobody got hurt - nobody got a hit w/ RISP, either.

7 innings in and Jays fans have realized four things:

1) It'd be nice to have the fun, energetic, spark plug that is Jose Reyes; too bad the Jays acquired the injury prone Jose Reyes.
2) That R.A. Dickey is a pitcher that had one good season, after which the Jays paid way too much to acquire and are now stuck with an over the hill mediocre ace.
3) The owners owned channel, Sportsnet, is nothing but a propaganda network with their countless openings of players in victory poses and intense poses, none of which are actually seen on the field.
4) This season will be infinitely worse than last.

I am honestly sad that Jose Reyes is already broken.

I also disagree with the idea that Dickey had "one good season." The dude clowned the NL for a few years. He just shouldn't have gone to the AL, since hitters already knew how to beat an aging Wakefield.

He had two winning seasons for the Mets, the first of which was two wins over being a .500 year. He spent the majority of his career floating around being a bottom of the rotation guy who would've faded into mediocrity if he didn't figure out the knuckleball. Even then, he has nothing else in his arsenal to fall back on. Putting all his money in one pitch is a recipe for failure.

Cubs challenge first and promptly lose. Braves make a challenge and win. Anything else interesting happen replay wise?

Holy ARod, Palmeiro vintage Rangers!!!

If the partisans think the last two campaigns have seen us gradually heading down the slippery slope from our salad day, just wait till they get a load of these golden oldies.

The Texans need their DL hurlers to be back on the beam as quickly as possible as they filter back or else this season is going to get real ugly, real quick!!!

The only statistic more worthless than pitcher wins is RBI.
