Here we go TEAM a new baseball season :carrot:

The winter :shocksn: trades came and went with little excitement...

Cold weather is slowly :snail: moving out in a lot of areas....

:sunny: is returning....

Spring Training is in the air :flow1:

A few :rain: showers linger but bottom line....

BASEBALL IS BACK :woohoo:

The OLYMPICS gave us a great show :congrat:

DANCING WITH THE STARS :dance: has posted their new line-up.....

But some of us are just flat out crack (:club: of the bat) addicts ;)

So here we go :cb:

Let's PLAY BALL :woohoo: :cheer: :woohoo:

As usual I will be :cheer3: rooting for my DODGERS and :cheer2: ANGELS....

that's a given ;)

But this year we are adding a little twist...

We will pick our favorite team and a fantasy team....a team you would :love: love to :cheer: root for but you just can't :nono:

I will post the rules in the next post.....

So come on EVERYONE....this thread is open to ALL BASEBALL LOVERS :)

Here are the rules for our FANTASY BASEBALL Contest...

Pick your favorite team....for me it's the DODGERS

Then pick the team you wish you could root for this year but just can't...since we are all loyal to our teams!!

This year mine is the Chicago White Sox....

then give your reason.....I have 3 reasons....I have always loved the White Sox uniforms...one of my favorite Dodgers ever is playing for them this year, Juan Pierre, and one pitcher I always wanted to be a Dodger, Jake Peavy, was traded to them from the padres....

So....I have the DODGERS and the WHITE SOX...

Points will be scored for the combined wins of both teams in the regular season....

You must submit your teams before Opening Day to qualify for the grand prize....

which is....drum roll....

1 FANTASY 3FC :chicken: B(cl)UCK:chicken: for each win...

AND...

A :cp::bravo: good job :bravo::cp: from all us sore :headache: losers.....;)

Of course in reality, I'll be rooting for the Red Sox... :cheer:

Secretly, :sssh: I would love to see the Mets do well this year, I'd like to see them dominate the press coverage and take everyone by surprise.. they've been through so many ups and downs, ... they've waited long enough... its time to out shine the Yanks...

Well obviously my team is the Cardinals.

My fantasy team is the Mariners. I'd love for them to do well this year.

I really like Cliff Lee and Suzuki.

I am so ready for Opening Day.

Let's go Rockies!!!!! They are MY team!

From ESPN:
Stephen Strasburg is a baseball IMMORTAL
Today we all witnessed the birth of a new supergod. The greatest phenom in sporting history descended from high atop Mount Strasburg, the secret mountain that towers over Mount Olympus, to bless the lives of all those enlightened souls who can recognize transcendent beauty......(Or maybe we just saw a couple innings of meaningless spring training baseball. Either way, he did make Miguel Cabrera look foolish.)

Hi yooperfinn... Welcome !...

I'm being told that FOX/Joe Buck will not be covering the Sox opener as I previously reported.. "Its not on their schedule"...but I'm still not convinced.. I really don't want to see Mr. Buck at Fenway till October...

Big Papi hit a HR yesterday... and everyone sighed with relief... last year was rough waiting for that first 'bomb'... Spring Training HR's count in my book..

My wish team is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since I now live in Dodger territory, I will likely be going to some of their games and watching them on television. I have also always respected Joe Torre, so it'd be fun to see that team do well. Even with that d0uche Manny Ramirez on the team.

Thanks! I'm excited about experiencing west coast baseball. I was here for the playoffs in October, got to go to Angel Stadium. Took quite a bit of abuse (and gave plenty back), but actually enjoyed myself a lot. I love seeing other parks. Haven't been to Dodger Stadium yet, so I'm looking forward to that. I promise I won't even boo Manny Ramirez. :devil:

As for my Red Sox - my birth certificate says Boston, MA, and I was raised right, so really I had no choice in the matter. Until 2004, I was sure my father secretly hated me and wanted me to suffer every October. :)

On a side note... my son had little league baseball tryouts last weekend. He's 13. It just amazes me how much these boys are changing. They are getting so tall and are just so much more confident in their skills. Hitting left a lot to be desired for all of the boys, but it could be because we had a little blast of winter weather that day. Oh... and you should hear all the voices that are changing. Kinda makes you giggle. :)

My son was a big collector back in the late 80's early 90's...he had well over 10,000 cards. He gave most of them away to the kids at church a few years ago. He still has several future HOF'ers in mint condition but since he collected at a time when EVERYONE did...they are not worth much if anything.

We had such a great time going to the card shows...his sister with us collecting her own cards...we all have great memories of nights putting cards in folders and being oh so careful not to touch the "good ones"...

he still has many in boxes never opened....

We spent hours looking at all the DODGER cards....the ones we bought...traded for or received at the stadium....

... I'm a little moldy but doing fine...:rain: the rain finally stopped falling this morning. So many people have lost everything in their basements "twice"...These are the times I'm happy that I lease... Thank you for the concern...

4 days till Red Sox Opening Night... I can't wait... :D
Looks like Josh Beckett will be starting, but nothing carved in stone at the moment...

Yankees make me nervous until I see them for the first time...

No tickets yet for any of the games... but I'm still trolling Ebay for a deal..

Caroline and Bill hope you are OK up there with all the flooding.Thanks for the concern, Clydegirl - the two prolonged rains stressed my old house in ways it's never been stressed before. So I've spent time with a wet-vac in the basement and have some interior wet stains to re-paint/re-pair. Both, of course, imply that when we dry out I need to see about a new roof and some work on the basement walls. But haven't lost anything.

Sweetcaroline - I just heard from a co-worker that first day tickets are still available. Apparently being Easter, Sunday night, wet, and cold have kept some of the fair-weather fans at bay. He said that bleacher seats can be had for only $150. The only in that sentence struck me.

I'm sorry Bill, :hug: but it sounds like your 'old' house stood up pretty well... It's going to be 'hot' :sunny: this weekend, so you'll be drying out soon... I hope the repairs go smoothly... The president was there today... did he stop by to wet-vac a bit ?

As far as the first game goes, I'm content here in my place on my big comfy couch... 'only' $150' I only allow family members to give me tickets...and so far there's no sign of that.. lol...

Caroline we are on the road for the first 6 games. 2 exhibition games this weekend at the new Twins field. Look out for those Twins they're going to be good this year.

Home opener is the 12th of April.

We traded Lugo today to the Orioles for a player to be named later.

Still no word on whether Yadi will be ready for opening Day.

BOSTON — Just think, there are 17 more of these games. The Yankees play the Red Sox 17 more times, which means 17 more chances to witness baseball played at its most exhilarating, frustrating or downright maddening.

17 more times for the SOX to sock it out of the field.

I knew you would not be happy. That had to hurt.

So, we took 2 of 3 from the Padres. Rockies need to start winning... right now we have the Giants and the DBacks ahead of us. So, we sit at 3-3. (I know Gary, that's better than 2-4, but still.) We play the Mets starting tomorrow.

Here are the results after the first week TEAM ....As I was counting it out I got to thinking that those that picked all American or all National teams, especially in the same divisions, may be at a disadvantage...since each time they play each other the best you can get is 50/50....curious to see how this plays out.

LIGHTS76 is in the lead with DIANE and STARGZR closing fast!

Ah memories Todd Wellemyer pitching.

Gary they came back in the ninth probably gave you a scare.

Got offered tickets to Sunday's game, but can't make it... know the man throwing out the first pitch. If it weren't the weekend of Freaknick I might have tried harder to make it work - may or may not be traffic problems in ATL this weekend, but I didn't want to risk it.

This is unreal.

Game started 3.10 this afternoon.

They are now in the 18th inning. No score.

Felipe Lopez is now pitching. He has never pitched before. Kyle Lohse our number 4 starter is in the outfield. Lopez just got 3 outs. I have no idea who is left on the bench.

Bottom of the 18th about to start.

Question Bill or Gary could they bring in a starter to pitch in a game like this?

I am not sure.

Well that answered my question.

Mets brought in a starter in the 20th and win the game.

Glad I wasn't at this game. 7 hours.

20 innings 19 pitchers.

The sad thing is the 2 starters had a great pitching duel and that has all but been forgotten.

Good grief, Clydegirl, 20 innings is some game. Using an outfielder to pitch? This isn't Little League, LOL.

Thank you for the distraction, since it's so unpleasant to acknowledge that the Red Sox lost two in one evening to Tampa Bay.

Dear Tony LaRussa,

Would you please stop tinkering so much. That double switch last night pulling Matt Holliday was crazy. Walk Albert and pitch to the bullpen guys, happened twice with the bases loaded.

Lets hope they are rested for tonight's game which is on ESPN, aagghhhh no not again. I like baseball on a Sunday afternoon.

Yadier Molina caught all 20 innings kudos.

Thanks for asking about little league. It's all in the pitching... we won 22-4. They had nothing for pitching. Those games are hard to watch. While I love to win, you don't want to see the other team get crushed. (At least in Little League. Another story in the Big League!!!)

Ok Bill...
Step #1 ...Turn the shirt inside out... who cares about your treadmill neighbors...
Step #2... don't be angry at the medical staff for putting Cameron back out there too early...
