MLB Opening Day, “Yawn”…Fantasy Baseball Opening Day, “Go Time”


Let’s begin…

Today is MLB opening day. So it’s only right that I welcome you to the most overhyped day in sports. People try to convince you every year of how great opening day baseball is, when in all actually it’s not that significant. Only thing more overrated is the Reagan administration. All the baseball purist, use nostalgia and romanticism to sell you on 1 of 162 games. All you here is, “Oh it a sign that summer is here. All I have to do is smell the grass and see the pitcher’s mound. It brings a tear to my eye. Opening day is as American as Apple Pie.” Yeah, the only thing is I actually like apple pie (with a scoop of ice-cream of course).

Now I want to make something clear. I like baseball. I love going to games, and watching on T.V. I just think the number of games in a season, make opening day insignificant. I would argue that the last 20 games of the regular season are far more compelling than opening day.

Strangely enough with all my problems in regard to opening day, I can’t wait for fantasy baseball to start. Everyone I selected in my auction draft has been waiting for this moment. We’ve made it through spring training injury free, and my players are foaming at the mouth, relishing the opportunity of taking the field. This is when my leadership as a manager is tested. Last year we finished second place, and I take full responsibility for our shortcomings. I should have dealt Ubaldo Jiménez when I had the chance. As a veteran owner I should have known better, and I have promised my team that I won’t make that mistake again. With a pitching rotation of C.C. Sabathia, Josh Johnson, and David Price, I don’t expect to have any pitching problems this year. Now in my hitting lineup I went young with Jason Heyward, Mike Stanton, and Justin Upton as my core. This will give me a good nucleus to build around this entire season. “Ya boy feels good”. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I can’t wait for opening day (Bart Scott Style).

After One Hundred Sixty Two Games, The MLB Season Has Begun


The MLB Playoffs Start Today

Let’s begin…

    It’s time to see who the best team in baseball is. However, before we get there I have to address the biggest problem with baseball. There are just too many games. It doesn’t take 162 to find out who’s the best. The baseball season should be three months long. It could become the summer sport, and garner its own niche. With that being said, I think this will be one of the greatest pitching postseason ever. There will be potential 8 Hall of Fame pitchers in action. I can’t remember the last time that happened. Let’s just say it never happened, because that makes me sound good.

American League Breakdown

    I’m not going to waste my time with the AL first time. Why should I dissect a forgone conclusion? So, let’s not insult each other’s intelligence, Tampa Bay and New York will play in the ALCS. The Rays can’t keep up New York’s offense. The Yankee line up is a beast my friend, however the Rays speed is going to pose some problems. I think the age of the Yankees will show up when these 2 teams play. I think this series will end up going to game 7. I think the Yankees will win because of the clutch play led by Alex Rodriguez (I can’t believe I wrote that sentence), and the pitching of C.C. Sabathia. At the same time the Rays will trump those 2 exactors if David Price is pitching game 7. Price is the best pitcher in the Major League, and if this is news to you, you’re just not paying attention. In this scenario I think David Price and C.C. Sabathia will cancel each other out, and the game will be decided in the bullpen. I’ll take the Rays pen in a big spot , and give you Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain, and any other bum they trot out(outside of Mo Rivera of course, but I don’t think it will come to a closing situation).

National League Breakdown

    I’m also not going to waste your time in the National League. I will say I hope Bobbly Cox and Dusty Baker golf, because in 3 games they’ll be doing a lot of it. San Francisco and Philadelphia will play in the NLCS. I like the Giants a lot, but they can’t hit. The Phillies will win, and make their third straight appearance in the World Series.
