Well the season started a few days ago and there isn't much talk. My Reds began the season with a walkoff 3-Run HR. Who do you expect to be good this year and who are some teams that you think could have a surprise season? I think the A's could be a sleeper team in the AL West personally because of their pitching staff. I'm not sold on the Phils. Yes, I know they have a dominant starting 4 but the team as a whole is always filled with injuries.

The Angels' bullpen still sucks.

I'm going to cherish the NHL season, because I don't think I'll enjoy baseball much this year.

Not a huge baseball fan, I don't really watch until the playoffs. I am Yankees fan though.

I do have a bias but I don't see why the Red Sox are the World Series favorites. They add a couple of new players and they get so heralded. They're great players but get real here. The Phillies early injuries might hinder them early, they could still be a favorite but they won't have an overwhelming season. My Yankees have aging players, not sure that they'll win. I don't even know who's going to win. The Orioles?!

Giants fan. My whole life too not just in the past 6 months.

A bit nervous after that first series with the Dodgers. Hoping to pick up two wnis against San Diego and Start the year off good at home.

And the MLB f*cked up by making the World Champions Start the year on a road trip. icon13.gif

I don't remember the last time the Angels started opening day at home. They used to play the Rangers for a series in Texas, and then at home, but now that the Rangers are good, the MLB had to ruin that little tradition. So at least the Giants actually play a division rival, as opposed to playing against a team that has a stadium that averages 20,000 people a game. And then when the Angels finally get their home opener, it's against the f*cking Blue Jays. The Angels don't play a division rival for two weeks, and they don't play a division rival at home for three weeks. Sometimes it feels like everyone hates Anaheim. The Ducks' schedule sucked this season, too.

Yeah, but why watch the Kings* when we have the Lakers in our backyard? Not that I watch basketball, but I'll have to cross that bridge when I get to it.

*or Royals as they'll probably be called. You can't have a team called the Kings play in the same city as the Ducks. That's like if the 49ers changed their name to the Dodgers.

Baseball's slipped off my radar the past couple of seasons since channel five stopped showing it. I'd watched every season since 91 before then and my allegiance is always changing. But since my sister moved over to go work in Boston I've settled on the BoSox. Her boyfriend gave me a ball signed by the great Karl Yastremski - I'm looking at it now.

Go Sawx!

Didnt even think about that. Up here around Sacto A lot of people are pissed. I find it more funny than anything because Basketball is lame anyways.

But anyway who cares, Were talkin baseball here. Whats up with the BoSox starting 0-6? Surprising I must say.

Well through the first week there are a few surprises. The Pittsburgh Pirates are 5-2 and the Baltimore Orioles are 6-1. The Rangers remain unbeaten at 6-0. I know its real early but I have a feeling the Rangers may finish what the almost did last season. They have a deep offensive team.

I always knew there was something that just didn't feel right about him. It just didn't seem fair that he could crush the Angels in the playoffs the way he did. And now I know why.

The Mets won 3 in a row. That's a major accomplishment for them. Though I don't expect too much out of them this year, especially since the Wilpons aren't too concerned with, you know, winning.

Of course the Red Sox decide to get good, when they play the Angels.

Can the home run derby be any f*cking slower. Let's put some real pitchers in there and speed this thing up.

Haha, a guy near that pool caught a homer, fell in the pool, and still didn't spill his beer.

The Angels are five games back after being 1 game back at times a week or two ago.

Their back end of the starting pitching rotation is really dragging them down, too. At least they found their bats the last couple games. Of course they're playing the O's.

Speaking of which, I love going to the game when Vlad Guerrero comes back to town. No matter what team he's playing on, it seems like fans in Anaheim want to see him knock the crap out of the ball. He still gets a standing ovation at least once a year from us.

I hate to break it to you, but the National League Central is more or less in the Brewers' grasp as they lead the second place Cardinals by 9 games. Pittsburgh is 15.5 games behind Milwaukee, with a winning percentage of .472 and a record of 59-66. The Brewers' percentage is .594, making them a sure candidate as the clinchers of the NL Central. The Pirates are better off aiming for the Wildcard, but it is unlikely as the Braves have them pretty much in their hands. Do you have any other favorite teams? Since you like Pittsburgh, you might like the Phillies. Philadelphia has a record of 81-43, the best in the league, with a winning percentage of .653. Place your bets on Philadelphia and the Yankees.

Weaver signed a 5 year $85mil contract extension. The best thing the Angels have done financially in years.

There are going to need him if they hope to win the AL West in the future. The Angels hitting is a bit slow, but with good outings from Weaver, they may be able to top the Rangers.

They really knocked around the Orioles this past weekend, I'm hoping beating up a weaker team gives them a renewed confidence after a sh*tty beginning of the month. The Angels' future looks really good. They have Bourjos who is really fast, like faster than Ichiro, and he can hit the long ball. Then there is Trumbo, who has to be on the top of the Rookie of the Year list, and has hit something like 25 homers this season. Then there is Conger who may not be the best but looks solid. Walden throws really hard. And then Trout who is probably not ready for the MLB but tears it up in the minors and will probably be a big part of the team in the future.

Right now, Wells is stinking it up, Hunter when he's not hitting two homers a game, isn't hitting much, the rest do pretty decent. But like I said, they top three starters are great, the other two usually aren't too great. I think they have what it takes to beat the Rangers, and that's what it'll come down to, if they want to win the division this season. It's not going to be pretty, though.

Since last year's ALCS, I have had a bone to pick with the Rangers for keeping the Yankees out of the World Series. The Rangers and the Angels are neck-and-neck in the AL West, but Texas has all-around better players. Josh Hamilton, who has missed about a month of game time is batting .302 with 16 dingers and 69 RBIs. Hamilton is a jack-of-all-trades kind of player. He can hit for average and homeruns, he has pretty good speed for a guy who is 6-foot-4 and his fielding ability is very good. Michael Young has been tearing apart the ball this year and his stats prove it. He is batting .338 (five points behind first place Gonzalez in all of MLB), he has 85 RBIs (tenth in the MLB) and he has 36 doubles to this point.
