there has been a lot of transactions this year, so lets get started on what should be a great baseball season:

- pitchers and catchers have reported to camp

- Michael Bourn signed with the Indians for 4 years @ $48,000,000. That's a fair price for him, but sucks that he is on a bad team...even if they have patchworked their offense

- Fransisco Liriano is an idiot

I decided I am going to try to not watch baseball until after the half way mark. That way won't be so devastated when the Bucos finish below .500 yet again.

I am looking forward to an eventful Brewers season again. I think they will make a playoff run with their young pitching staff.

Really Glad MLB the show doesn't have a cover curse or else Mccutchen and the Pirates may get cursed and lose for 20 seasons in a row. Glad it's not Madden...Phew.


Oh wait.

You have far more faith than I do. Opposing teams got to see these guys and make their reports on them last year, that's the reason we see the sophomore slump in sports, and I think it's going to hit the staff hard. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm pretty concerned about the 4 guys after Yo. I have hope, but I'm expecting a .500 record.

If the Yankees win 95 games or more id be shocked. But its just for one year of the cut backs.

Another year to visit Wrigley Field to get drunk while the Cubs stink out the joint.

I hear what your saying. Some of those guys will get figured out in games, but they are all still good pitchers. Yo, Narv, estrada, Fiers and Peralta make a descent 5. The bullpen added some stronger pitchers. Plus our offense will be just as good as last year. Weeks will get out of his slump. Im excited for an above 500 year.

Replace "Yankees" with "Cubs" and "95" with "65" and "But its just for one year of the cut backs" with "We'll get 'em next year"...and I agree with you.

I think Victor Martinez and Tori Hunter will do wonders for the Tigers. Possibly the best 3,4,5 hitters in the league.

I fancy myself a bit of a sports atheist. I don't have any favorite teams. I just enjoy the game of baseball. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the Nats can do with that young team. They had a great off season as well.

Also looking forward to what Detroit can do with V-Mart back in the fold and Hunter in the OF. (Thought admittedly, that's mostly because I've got V-Mart as a very late round keeper in my fantasy baseball league )

Also curious to see how the drawn in fences in SD and Sea play. I think the Mariners offence might surprise this season. Guys like Morales and Morse should both have respectable power numbers if they can stay on the field long enough to accumulate the stats.

btw- Isn't there some sort of Playground Fantasy Baseball league? If so, are there any openings this season? If there isn't one, we should probably get on that.
