NO MORE SNOW PLEASE!

Good Luck to your team until your team plays Detroit.:wink::toothy7:

And Thank You Lord...
I finally get to see Carlos Guillen again.

    Baseball fans should have more respect for the presidency. How could any real American boo the president throwing the opening pitch in DC this weekend?! :toothy7:

    Good luck to all teams, especially Chicago and Atlanta. :nike:

    It's never spring until the Sox start playing! We're starting tomorrow 1-1 thanks to a stint in Japan.

    Yay for baseball!

    Phillies start today!! My son's going. Too bad it's chilly and drizzling... Hopefully it'll clear up a bit before the start of the game.

    Opening Day???

    Go Tigers!!

    I miss baseball. Out of a handful of opening days I can only remember 1 that had nice weather (and that was back at old Tiger Stadium).

    I hate all pro-sports, but even I enjoyed that moment. :)

    Yay!

    Stupid rain delay is keeping the Diamondbacks' season from starting - but hopefully in about 15 minutes! That's when the delayed game is supposed to start.


    Good luck to all your teams! And Rockies fans, I think your team is going to win it all. They looked AMAZING this spring.

    It's another year for the Cubs. I have no hope for these guys, the last world series win was in 08'......1908. :tongue2:

    The Dodgers Opener against the Giants just started! I'm listening to the game on the radio. I much rather be there.

    You betcha, baby!

    Rain delay, bottom of the 3rd. BUT! Cards are beating the Rockies 5-1. :D

    ETA: Postponed 'til tomorrow night. 4-1 was the "final" but it didn't count.

    One of my favorite former Springfield Cardinals, Mr. Rico Washington, made the trip 'round the warning track in a convertible - he made it to the show, baby! After something like 10 years bouncing around the minors, he's now a MAJOR LEAGUE BALLPLAYER! Go Rico!

    And Ozzie was there, looking less grumpy than usual to be within a 40 mile radius of Tony. :D

    I'm a diehard, lifelong, 4th generation Cardinals fan. That being said, I think I would kind of love it a little if the Cubs won it all this year.

    Maybe. We'll see how I feel come September... :lol:

    Gotta love that St. Louis weather! I've decided the cheap seats in Busch Stadium are the best because you stay dry when the inevitable storm rolls in! :)

    LOL about Ozzie

    has it here: http://baseballplayamerica.com/page8.html



    And tonight I'm going to AAA opening night to watch Randy Johnson pitch. I'll post pictures later!

    In case anyone wants nightmares... and I wasn't zooming. At least not much (second row behind the dugout he was walking into):

    So Sunday I was supposed to go to a minor league game to watch our big pitching prospect, Max Scherzer, start. I woke up to a text message from my brother asking if I knew what they were going to do with him since they'd called him up.


    Last night he pitched 4 1/3 innings in relief when our starting pitcher did poorly. 7 strikeouts, perfect for his 4 1/3. I've seen Randy Johnson pitch at his best. I've seen videos of Randy's perfect game. Max seemed more dominant than Randy, so the main question for him is whether he ends up healthy for his career or not. Just.... wow. Kid looked amazing.
