Football has a thread. Hockey has a thread. Basketball has a thread. So...

Welcome to the baseball thread! Your place to talk baseball, bitch about your team and make fun of the Marlins.

Yay, finally only about two weeks-ish after the opening day but still. And I am glad that yesterday the Yankees shutout the Red Sox 8-0, especially after a disaster against the White Sox and Astros.

Yes, that was quite enjoyable. Be more enjoyable if half the effing team wasn't on the injury list...

Twins fan here. Watching through my fingers and waiting for their annual double-digit losing streak that will have them out of contention before the All-Star break. :(

The Mariners are triggering me. From 13-2 to 13-7 they used to be able not to get under 7 runs and now can’t get more than 2. Its scary that we will pass the bills (whom I’m also a fan of) and have the longest playoff droughts

Ahh baseball, which is a perfect time to not pay attention to the first 150 games of the season, with exception to perhaps All-Star week.

Pretty much. I mean I like baseball, but I don't pay attention for a good chunk of the season.

Hopefully I might just see a game this year.

Just saw the Yankees score a Grand Slam against the Red Sox, it's now 5-3. :)

And of course it happened while I was upstairs watching Survivor...

And....... the Mariners lose 1-0 at home. Wow, I guess pitching isn’t the problem this year

Rays off to a hot start and I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts.

It's another edition of 'Let The Kids Play'.

I'm kind of on both sides of this. I love a little showboating and bat flipping. But when you grandstand too much, you know you've got a bean coming your way.

I guess we'll see if this thread lasts longer than the last one did.

Let's go Cards!

The Cubs are momentarily failing to suck. And watching Báez play is worth it even when the pitchers can't find the strike zone and the batters are unclear on the "hitting the ball" thing. :P

I think the MLB should expand to more Canadian Cities and Northern Mexican Cities

Monterrey and Chihuahua to name a few

I've read something that the league is looking at Monterrey. But why Canada? It's struggling to support even one team.
