It's New! It's Improved! It's the Official Annual Off-Topic Baseball Thread!!

Opening Day, baby!!

I'm not big on Opening Night, but at least this year, the Sox didn't have to fly to Japan for regular season games. Unfortunately, they got rained out this afternoon; they'll make it up tomorrow at 4.

More good news: The Yanks are getting killed in Baltimore 10-5 in the 8th. Mick's Tigers are off to a tough start, down 4-0 only 2 innings into the new season. The Cubbies are poised to go 162-0 (they're up 2-0 in the third) and DJ's Mariners open the season without a Putz on the roster for the first time in years. The Pirates, meanwhile, score 4 in the top of the 9th to beat St. Louis.

Personal apologies for the delay in getting the thread started. Real life intruded. Enjoy, and I'll see you all in the chat room tonight for the Men's Final!

If it is improved it is not new. If it is new it is not improved.

I think someone here has that tagline.

I thought Hockey ended a month ago. I guess I am going to have to start paying attention to other sports.

Peace

To the Blue Jays! 12 - 5 Final. The Jays will do slightly above average for a few months, then slow down and overall tank the season. Roy H will find it tougher to say the cliches for his staying in Toronto.

And in other news, the Cardinals relief pitching woes just carry over into this season.
