It's that time of year again. :carrot:

Opening Day is tomorrow Cardinals and Marlins, at the Marlins new stadium. :cp:

So if you are a fan of the game come on down and let's have some fun. :)

I can't wait. :cheer3:

The Cardinals are going to have a completely different feel to them this year. I'm excited and can't wait until the home opener at Busch Stadium.

It's a brand new season. :cp:

It's on to Milwaukee.

The first of many against the Brewers.

This all seems a bit disjointed. Play 1 in Miami, then a day off before playing in Milwaukee. Couldn't we just have played a 3 game series with the Marlins?

It would have saved another trip there later in the year.

At the wrong end of the broom this weekend. But at least we have loads of offense today. ;)

Tigers have a killer lineup combo Cabrera and Fielder, reminds me of the Manny and Papi days.

Another Red Sox Nation win gets us up to only 2 games behind first place. Our win/loss record still remains below .500 - down there tied with the . . . Los Angeles Angels.

One team, from that same city, seems to be winning non stop with the highest number of wins in Major League Baseball at this moment. Fortunately, it won't go to the heads of their loyal fans, who will remain modest.

RE: The alleged triple play by a Los Angeles team.

Seems it would be common courtesy for a catcher to tell the batter that he had hit the ball before throwing willy nilly around the bases to just make everyone out before they even start running.

It's not considered good sportsmanship to shoot ducks sitting on the water - just isn't fair. Good sportsmanship and common courtesy are the mark of gentlemen.

I noticed at the game on Saturday against the Dodgers, the Hall of Fame got Bryce Harper's bat and ball from his first hit.

Isn't that a bit premature? Or is it just me? :D

Does he not have to prove himself first? The guy is 19 years old for goodness sake.

Matt Kemp will get 50 home runs if he keeps playing the way he is. He needs to get on base though to get the 50 stolen bases. ;)

I watched the game, with the sound off as I usually do, and saw the double over Kemp's head and then saw the ball come rolling into the dugout area. I just assumed it was coming in for Bryce, something always done on a players first hit in the bigs.

On Bryce Harper... we saw him at the JUCO world series. He had some good moments, but he is so full of himself. He was ejected in the game that was right before the championship game, and his team lost in the championship game. He disagreed with a called strike, so he drew a line in the dirt to show the umpire where the ball had crossed and then told the umpire what he thought of him. Oh great. What a role model. So, yeah, way too early for him to get this much attention.

WARNING BLASPHAMY
(Shield the eyes of small children)

Sweet Caroline is not negotiable!!!

Today's Boston Globe contains the following story.

‘Sweet Caroline’ not so sweet after all?

We’re not only ones who think it may be time to retire “Sweet Caroline” at Sox games. In the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, the editors ask several rock ‘n’ rollers if they think pop music is overplayed at ballparks these days, and if there’s any one song they never want to hear again during a game. A few folks, including Steve Earle, Dream Syndicate’s Steve Wynn and Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard say they could do without “God Bless America,” and Anthrax’s Scott Ian doesn’t want to hear Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” every time Yankee closer Mariano Rivera steps on the field. Joe Pernice of the Pernice Brothers says he’s had it with Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” – “[Diamond] doesn’t need the royalties and the game doesn’t need the tune” – and so has Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys. “I never need to hear ‘Sweet Caroline’ again,” says Casey. “I was sitting beside a Yankee fan and he made fun of me about it, and I had no comeback. It’s embarrassing to see grown men hugging each other and singing ‘Reaching out, touching you.’”Fortunately, this was in the Metro Section - not the Sports Section - so no one will see it.

Yep, Gary, I think OKC has quite a force there. Maybe if the Lakers and the Nuggets could have banded together against the Thunder.... but probably not.

And we are in LA.

Cards have a lot of injuries at the moment. Allen Craig back on the DL. He's been really hot and we need his bat in the line-up.

Look at this bunch of tacky tuxedos.

Tough loss for you last night, I slept through it....going to bed with a 5-4 lead and the Lakers being down. I was surprised to see the finals in both of those.

Watched Verlander almost get a no-no yesterday with my GRANDdaughter1 and son/dil over for dinner.

Berkman injured. Probably going back on the DL.

Looks like they are calling up one of our top prospects to replace him.

How on earth do we end up with the ESPN game Sunday night? Then come back home to play on Monday.

I can't say I'm a big baseball fan, but used to play baseball as a junior and enjoyed it. I see the odd game on TV too.

I am going to the US in October 2013 so I guess I'll be too late to see a Baseball game :( I'm doing a cruise on the west coast and then doing a cruise up the east coast from NY to Nova Scotia and one of the stops was Boston, so I thought I might try and go to the baseball stadium, is it the red sox? Might try and see the NY one too.

I'm love the history of sports and the feeling of going in to a stadium and the buzz of the crowd. Maybe I might be able to see a NFL game while I'm there, that would be an experience :D

I went to one of our football games on Friday night and my team won, it was a great night 75,000 people and the scores were level with about a minute and a half to go, then we got 2 goals to win :D

Swept by the Mariners. Now we are at the bottom of the division. The sports talk radio is now trying to figure out who will be fired first. Fun times.

The Red Sox have clawed their way up so that they are NOT behind the Yanques.

And their NSV is to have won as many games as they've lost.

Oh ye of little faith. We're back to 50-50 again by defeating the Orioles. Unfortunately, this time a half game behind the Yanques. I'll still consider that another Non Standings Victory.

collingwood - You will be most welcome to join Sweetcarolie and I when we host Gary (EZMONEY) for tea at the Ritz Carleton Hotel overlooking the Boston Common before the last game of the World Series between the Los Angles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox in October, 2012. It's our tradition to do this every year that our two teams make it to seven games. I pay for the tea. Gary - who has connections - gets the game tickets.
