    I suppose it's time for the new thread with the first game of the season in the books. Seattle beat Oakland 3-1 in 11 innings. MLB Day-to-Day Pickem is updated with the first final score.

    Seven days until the American season starts.

    Jay what is your predictions for your team this year apart from the new name are the boys gonna preform better this year ie is there light at the end of the tunnel ?

    If we can't top 72-90 from a year ago odds are Ozzie Guillen'll get fired as quickly as he was hired.

    I haven't seen this posted anywhere since it has become official but Magic Johnson and the Guggenheim group have bought the Dodgers. They paid $2.1 Billion for the team. The team is thought to be worth $1.4 Billion so I think they may have overpaid for them. McCourt will still get a piece of the money as he has minority interest in the parking lot.

    MLB wants to have a regular season game in the new Olympic Stadium in London. I'm not sure how Montreal fans feel when that statement is tweaked a tad.

    It's a noble effort, but probably way too early.

    NBCSportsTV yesterday said that McCourt will still pocket "hundreds of millions." A shame that someone can fuck up an American Icon THAT much and be rewarded with "hundreds of millions" in the process. The New American Way - ruin a part of America and get paid for doing it.

    Hi Tim. I just stumbled upon the existence of Joe Table Jr. In South Florida no less, yet the paper doesn't mention his father's significance down here...ridiculously. He's a strong, senior ace for one of the [public] high schools down here.

    Well...that was a big let down for the three or so years of build up. I'm not sure what the hell I would have made out of a Lohse no-hitter to open the park.

    At least the Heat won...

    I started watching the game when I heard of his potential no-hitter.

    Clayton Kershaw left tonights game after 35 pitches and the 3rd inning. No need to hold your breath. Everything Ive found so far says stomach illness.

    I originally read that as stitches instead of pitches...had to reread it before it made sense.

    I've learned that in baseball, stomach illness, usually means unable to stay in the field without having to run off to use the facilities.

    At least Jose Valverde kicked off the season with the first blown save (when the Fantasy season begins, at least); you knew yours wouldn't be far behind. At least you weren't perfect on saves last season like he was.

    After watching the Marlins & the Reds series all weekend, I have to say I like the idea of Hanley Ramirez playing 3rd base. Go Reds...

    Even a Gold Glove 3B likely fails to turn the double play to end the game...Bruce was ridiculously hot all series and snuck a ball over the wall by inches to set it all up.

    We had no chance on Thursday and split the games over the weekend...if we can take one in Philadelphia then run through Houston and Chicago on our first homestand, we'll be fine.
