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.
