very optimistic on the mets this year, but the division is rough. they're a very improved team at least but might not be enough

Cano first homer of the season though! (not counting japan series)
--off scherzer no less.

Also super glad they got the deGrom extension done, and have Alonso on the opening day roster. just wished they could've opened the pockets a little more, as usual. could've really made a big diff

deGrom is still the same jam getter outer master he always is, gets out of a corners 0 out situation clean thanks to the old 5-4-2-5 double play

Yes I also welcome discussion on that league that is test-running proposed MLB rule changes like a further mound and no mound visits without pitcher removal

That was clearly one of the errors he was referring to because look at the Cy Young

This was in response to SephyG.

The Rangers got through an inning without giving up a hit (Minor did walk a guy though)

I am legitimately impressed

Way to see NL MVP Yellich start off the season with a 3-run blast.

Also, who said pitchers were useless at the plate in the NL? Our guy is 2-2 with a HR.

Great win for the Brewers! It was like picking up right where we left off last season. Solid Chaucin outing. Clutch home run by Yellich. And Hader coming in at the end to just mow down batters with his fastball.

Oh baseball, how I've missed you.

Decided to look up said relievers, and I have to wonder if ESPN simply made an error or this Bird guy's first and middle names are both Kyle.

I wouldn't put that much stock in it.

The Rangers are a 100 loss team this year.

*Saturday

Woke up and turned on the on the game just as the Cubs started pouring on the runs. I'd like to take credit for that but I guess the Rangers are just bad. Ah well, starting above the Cardinals, let's keep it that way.

True but getting home runs and the relievers pitching well are good no matter the opponent.

Chris Davis' strikeout ability is impervious to coaching

Also my only prediction for the Orioles is that they'll only have the second worst record this season.

It's definitely Ryan Howard tier now and if Hyde and Long can't get him producing at least 2016-2017 numbers then I'd say there's a strong argument for it at least being the worst in baseball.

Good start for the Phillies. No hits for Bryce Harper, but he did help set up a grand slam by getting an intentional walk to load up the bases (bad mistake by the Braves).
