    sycked If you loved me, you'd all kill yourselves today.

    What's up with several games being on today? Cardinals @ BURGH got underway, then we have Rays vs Blue Jays and the standard Sunday night game that will feature the Mets vs the Royals.

    Then you have the fucking Cubs playing in LAA for an exhibition game. What the fuck is with that?

    Also, my Comcast feed on xfinity dropped during the first inning. Channel still not back up.

    Makes sense for ESPN to have a full day of games, but the Cubs playing an exhibition is really stupid.

    First game of the season is Cards/Pirates? I thought it was usually the WS winner, and it was typically played on the night before the official season opening.

    From some Angels beat writer:
    ICYMI: Reason Angels-Cubs playing an exhibition today is regular series originally scheduled to start Tuesday. Didn't want 2 off day

    Ok, then, uh, cancel it.

    Royals rocking the Gold uniforms. Why didn't the Sox opt for that?! Might never have the chance again.

    Ended up buying the MLB (extra innings) Package last night..

    Plus, get to see almost every single game for $20 a month
    Negative: Unless the Sox are off CSN for a game, I won't catch them this year.

    Yesterday didn't make allot of sense, in that every year since I recall Baseball had one game on Sunday, then some starting Monday, then Tuesday.

    Weird thought.. I really like the Giants TV announcers.

    And I missed when Span signed/traded to the Giants.

    AJP GIDP with a runner on and no outs in the bottom of the ninth with a tie game.

    Beckham 0/2 with 2 Ks and an error in the top if the tenth that led to the game winning run.

    Nice to see Sox shit happening on other teams.

    The three of them combined for -.525 WPA. You start the game with a 50% chance of winning. They singlehandedly fucked that up.

    Happened oddly early, before Gordon re-signed with KC. Guess they knew what they wanted.

    Wondering if the Padres should have sold on Ross this past off-season. It's just one game.. but, they aren't going anywhere in that division.
