Word coming out of Arizona that AJ Pollack really hurt his elbow on a slide.

That's not good at all. I had a feeling they were going to regret dealing Inciarte. Moreso now. 

 

EDIT: Fractured elbow that'll require surgery. Could be out till August.

Baseball is my worst prediction & fantasy game...

AL

1. Houston

2. Kansas City

3. Toronto

WC Texas def Detroit

 

Houston def Texas

Toronto def Kansas City

 

Houston def Toronto... I'm not certain the Jays' rotation & bullpen is still enough for a deeper run + the Astros' balance is terrific.

 

NL

1. Chicago

2. Los Angeles

3. New York

WC Washington def Pittsburgh

 

Chicago def Washington

Los Angeles def New York

 

Los Angeles def Chicago... Kershaw goes beastmode, their hitters smarten up + the Cubs pitching doesn't truly scare me.

 

Houston def Los Angeles in 6... the Astros become the GSW of baseball.

 

btw, if the Giants somehow win this even year, are the rest of us cursed somehow?

So, wait, does this Cardinals Pirates game today count? How often do they have more than just the Sunday night game the day before opening day?

This is the first time, I believe. When I am commissioner, all teams will open on Sunday so more people will be off and will be able to watch their teams' opener.

Maybe Cespedes should've spent more of the off season working on his fielding rather than at the auto dealership.

I got a kick out of the announcers talking about his Gold Glove and then he boots the first ball hit to him this season.

 

Anyway, it's Opening Day, folks. All is right with the world.

I know the Royals have a good home jersey, but they ought to go with these gold jerseys full-time.  It sets them apart from the Dodgers, and they look really, really good.

Yeah they do look really good. It'd look even better if they swapped the colors (Blue outlined in gold on the jersey, white outlined in gold on the hat), though IMO. 

 

I've actually been pushing for that look for the Royals for awhile.

Atta boy, Blue Jays.

 

Nice win and also (for me) a nice draft for my fantasy team.

Rough night for Cespedes, AKA the Jay Leno of baseball. Dropped that easy fly ball in the first that led to the first run, and then K'd to end the game with the tying run on third. Enjoy that $75 million, I guess.

I blame the new apostrophe on the back of his jersey, it´s really weighing the poor guy down.

Watching the intro to the O's game on MASN literally gave me chills.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
