I'm watching baseball, it's near 70 degrees...the only thing missing is a beer, and the smell of grilling meat!

Aaron Judge just hit a ball that landed on my desk in Brooklyn.

I know this is not going to happen... but hopefully by mid season the Yankee lineup looks like this ... a realistic lineup...

Ellsbury CF
Castro 3B
Bird 1B
Sanchez C
Holliday DH
Didi SS
Judge RF
Frazier LF
and then either Mateo or Torres at second base

Get Headley and Gardner out of the way .. and sprinkle in Chris Carter

I am expecting a big year from Joey Bats.  Watching him in a couple of games so far his bat speed looks fantastic.  Looks like he put 10 lbs of muscle on in his shoulders

I certainly am not jumping for joy over the news. Meeting with Dr. James Andrews usually means we'll see you back in action a year from now.

Although Price had a disappointing first year with the Sox, he was still a horse who would take the ball every fifth day. And I was hoping he'd have a much better season this year with a little pressure taken off. On the bright side, the Sox still have a pretty good starting five without Price. Sale, Porcello, Pomeranz, Wright, Rodriguez. That should be good enough to be in the mix. Unfortunately though they've become very thin and after the top 5, there's a steep drop off. Any more injuries, and that's inevitable, it could get ugly.

I've watched parts of some of the games so far. It's hard to take it too seriously with all the pitch count limits and such, but it's entertaining. It's too bad the major league guys can't go all out, but it's understandable why. Too much money on the line.

Nope. I hate the WBC. Hate it with the passion of a thousand burning suns. I won't watch a minute of it if I can help it.

It's funny....on Friday night I literally spent an hour having a bitch fest with a friend at the brewery about this. We both feel the same way, so it wasn't very contentious....but you'd think we were arguing politics or religion by how ticked off we both got talking about it.

They shouldn't even BE there.

None of the teams want their superstars playing in it, because even pulling punches (so to speak) theres at least ONE big injury every fucking time they play. Each team should get two exemptions every time this piece of shit "tournament" happens, that lets them tell their players to fuck off and get back to work in camp. "No, you can't play".

It's during spring training when these guys should be working with THE PEOPLE WHO ARE PAYING THEM A SHIT TON OF MONEY TO PLAY BALL.

You want to be patriotic? Great...do it in the off season. Find a nice, warm place to play (Miami is GREAT) in December and January and have at it.

UGHHHHHH...ok...deep breaths. Don't get me started, eh?

I would agree it should probably be played using players not under MLB contract or pure amateurs.....  I could play 2nd, it would be great.

But then nobody other than my kids would watch and it wouldn't last.

Team Canada, with a bunch of unkowns/aaa players beat the Jays 7-1 the other day.  Guess why?  Canada was actually trying haha

In all honesty, have MLB participate in the summer Olympics.  Minus the boring All Star game that year, take a week off, do it right every 4 years.

Very frustrating. I was hoping they'd let Torres play but they immediately reassigned him after the injury.

Bird looks tremendous.

I picked up Torres in fantasy to stash before that injury took place. We have two slots for guys not in the majors. I'm not sure if he'll get much of a shot this year but I'm taking that chance.

The Yankees have officially won the grapefruit league championship. I declare the rest of the season irrelevant.

Congrats to the Yanks, Champions of Baseball once again!!! Tongue

Yadier Molina and the Cards close to extension, early reports have it in the 55-65 mil range over 3 years.

In other words, Yadi broke the bank.

And should make him a Cardinal for life. ok
