First day of pitchers and catchers.

I know there are plenty of MLPers who could give a rats az but I'm excited. Nothing like the smell of cut grass, a warm day, a hot dog and some baseball.

Go Giants.

Let me be the first to predict a World Series win for the Red Sox (hopefully).

You had me at 'warm day.'

Padres already mathematically eliminated
:laugh2:

Here's a question. Should MLB have a hard salary cap and profit sharing to level the playing field?

SF enjoys a large budget but across the bay the A's have an old stadium with a sewage problem.

Since I canceled my cable, this will be the first year I watch games on MLB.TV. New this year: Multi-Game Viewing Options: "Watch up to four games simultaneously.":thumb:

MLB blocks these 4, I'm not a big fan of long drives anymore:
Pittsburgh Pirates
Cleveland Indians
New York Yankees
New York Mets

Toronto is 90 miles away but it's not blocked.:hmm:

First Game: Wednesday, February 22 3:10 PM

Grand Canyon Antelopes vs Arizona Diamondbacks.

That would be fine with me. However, like I have said since 2004, destroying the Yankees in the ALCS was the second greatest moment (collection of moments) in my sport-loving history. The only thing that beats it is the USA win over Russia in 1980. Interestingly, they were both "semi finals."

If the Sox never win another world series, I am totally at peace with it. '07 and '13 were wonderful, but just gravy for me.

I will also add that tons of beautiful women come out of the woodwork at Bosox games. I worked in Boston for years. I'd see pretty women, here and there. Go to a Sox game and you get whiplash looking all around.

I couldn't give a rat's ass until April. Spring Training is just a money grab and a chance for the boys to hang out.

Yep. My daughter got me a T-shirt imprinted with "My favorite two teams: The Red Sox and whoever plays the Yankees".

That come-from-behind moment for the Sox was fantastic! My youngest was ecstatic.

I was living in Bristol, Connecticut when USA beat Russia. Another great moment. I remember watching the goalie counting rows to try to find his father. Thanks for reminding me about it!
