    Cannot wait. In my excitement, I thought today was Thursday, and was ready for Baseball tonight :(

    Anyway, lets go Dodgers

    Nats for all the glory ...

    Bryce to hit 50, Turner to steal 70, Strasbourg to win a Cy Young and Max to throw a perfect game.

    Not asking for much!

    First time in 5 years I won't be at an opening day game (thanks to them all starting on Thursday). I'll be at Indians @ Mariners on Saturday though.

    A ton. But They'll also hit a ton of home runs. So it will all balance out

    Was watching ESPN last night when I came in from work and the over/under was 90 Home Runs.. Can't wait to get started today.. MLB TV is ready to go on my dodgy box so bring it on

    $%^& off!

    You might be right though!

    Except I did say for all the glory and my interpretation of that is the World Series!

    Mets sweep the Astros to win the WS. With Tim Tebow scoring a grand slam HR to clinch the game.

    Bring on the season!

    I know why they have to do it but scheduling opening day games in the north always runs the risk of getting called off.

    Tigers pirates gone now aswell.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭krustydoyle


    Just sat down with a beer in hand... PLAY BALL!!!!


    EDIT: WOW!!!! 1st ball... 1st HR!!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 394 ✭✭rebelyell99


    Ian Happ just homered for the cubs on the very first pitch of the 2018 season!! Oh baseballs back baby!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,296 ✭✭✭Coeus


    So the first pitch of the season is crushed for a leadoff homer. A sign of things to come for both the Cubs and the Marlins...


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing


    MLB went to a live look in for the first round of Judge/Stanton. Judge struck out, Stanton homered.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭krustydoyle


    Stanton's 1st AB and its a 2 Run HR

    Welcome to the Yankees

    Woo hoo!!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing


    Ohtani got a single in his first AB.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,460 ✭✭✭Comic Book Guy


    Inside the park home run for Eduardo Nunez.

    Go Red Sox!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,460 ✭✭✭Comic Book Guy


    Great start to season for Chris Sale.

    1 hit in 6 innings with 9 strikeouts

    Watching Yanks blue jays ,Yanks look really good .Stanton off to a great start and severino pitched 5 and 2/3 innings of scoreless ball!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭krustydoyle


    Another HR for Stanton.. What a start for him..

    He goes 3-5 with 2 HRs and 4 RBI


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,460 ✭✭✭Comic Book Guy


    Great start to season for Chris Sale.

    1 hit in 6 innings with 9 strikeouts

    And then Joe Kelly and Carson Smith undo all that giving up 6 runs in the 8th for the loss, bloody hell!

    Anyone see Donaldson in the Jays-Yanks game? Yikes. Ugly. When a third baseman can't throw across the diamond you have to wonder what he's doing out there. It was embrassing.

    Anyway, it's one game. Get 'em tomorrow.

    He has a dead arm apparently. Probably should be the DL.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing


    Nelson Cruz homered the first pitch he saw.

    Syndergaard struck out 10 batters and looked lethal. The Offence was lively too.

    Overall a soils start from the Mets

    Mets are something like 37-20 all time in season openers. Still, it beats losing, and they did it without home runs.

    Different question: any way to see the condensed games without having mlb.tv? I did this all the time since about 2013, now it wants me to have a membership. Could be they updated their software the rats, but I'm hoping there's a better link out there....

    Mutter...Stanton...luck of the Yankees get the reigning NL MVP for like, money and a few guys who weren't going to make as much of a difference. Reminds me of Nettles and Chambliss to the NYY followed by the Cleveland GM...

    Saw the second one where he bare handed the ball. Not sure if he had a firm hold of it, but it was a brutal throw.
