wtfuxnothreadonMLBwhatisthis.

Discuss the 2009 Major League Baseball season here.

I'm a die hard Yankee fan, so I'm obviously rooting for them. Glad we got Tex and A.J Burnett. C.C was a great acquirement too, but his opening day was disappointing.

On a sadder note, Nick Adenhart of the Los Angeles Angels, 22 died this morning in a three way car crash, the story is on MLB.com

How? We went out and got the top three Free Agents at the time. AJ went very well in his game today, Tex finally got out of his slump and performed well. I'm concerned with CC, but he'll come through hopefully by the opener.

Along with Swisher, he had a great day. I'm shocked he drove in 5 guys today. Gardner is amazing with his speed, Melky can assist on other days. Damon is one of those every day guys, and the Jeter leadoff thing should've been done since the beginning. He's grounded into ~45 double plays in the last two seasons, 15 of them took place in the 1st inning... so along with there being more variety in the lineup (left, right, switch, etc), he doesn't ground into double plays as much.

Our game (11-2 victory) proved our offense can really come through, our bullpen does AMAZING, and more.

On another note, I'm impressed with the Marlins this season, sweeping the Nationals. Dan Uggla had some nice hits, and that guy (I forget his name) who hit an inside the park home run, amazing baseball to watch.

In the fashion they did it, it was so funny that it as impressive. (In my opinion. :C)

Yeah, it was a good series, painful to watch CC and Wang fail. But today was pretty much murder. AJ pitched I think 2 shutout innings in a row, and I think one more after his back-to-back one run innings.

But just because the Orioles beat us in one series won't give them a ring. :p

Bah, Indians just lost their first three. In Cliff Lee's opening game he gave up like four or five runs. At this rate, we won't see their awesome prospect pitchers in Columbus for much longer...

I watched that game because of Carl Pavano.

Man, he's losing it.

He just needs to retire. Past injuries are killing him.

If the Yanks can get C.C back together after his first game, they will recover.
A.J pitched Beautifully yesterday. I see a no-hitter for him this year.

C.C is a slow starter, so I don't think he'll be a problem in his next two starts.

What was it, two shutout innings, then the back-to-back one run innings, and then a third of an inning shutout?

Still, he's doing a great job. I look forward to seeing Andy pitch today.

(Info from the Philadelphia Phillies website.)

Harry Kalas, the treasured voice of Philadelphia summers and unforgettable falls, died Monday in Washington. Kalas, 73, had been looking at the Phillies' lineup and talking to players inside the visitors' clubhouse at Nationals Park just minutes before he took the elevator to the Phillies' broadcast booth, where he was found unconscious at about 12:20 p.m. Phillies broadcasting manager Rob Brooks performed CPR on Kalas before medical personnel rushed him to George Washington University Medical Center, where he died at 1:20 p.m. The cause of death was unknown. Kalas was a Hall of Fame talent with an infamous voice and delivery. He was inducted into the broadcaster's wing of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 2002, having won the Ford C. Frick Award, which is presented to broadcasters who made major contributions to baseball. Kalas, who is survived by his wife Eileen and sons Todd, Brad and Kane, had been a Major League Baseball broadcaster for 44 years, spending the past 39 years with the Phillies.

THAT BALL IS OUTTA HERE!!!
We'll miss you Harry. I'll never forget when you called the final out of the 2008 World Series.
Gone but never forgotten, R.I.P Harry Kalas.

Also, wtf is up with the Marlins. 8-1?

I am in so much shock after that game. I was so moody.

I can't believe Wang is losing control of that sinker SO FAST. His first inning was great. Then his sinker drops in the middle (and the hitters caught on to the outside of the plate) and just poured it over...

The risk of putting Wang in Triple-A would be waivers, unfortunately. But we can't have him live off of Live Batting Practice forever. We need long-inning relievers too. We need 6th and 7th inning guys if some guys like Joba can't get past the 5th inning. Bruney and Mo are easy 8th and 9th inning guys, so no concern there. Veras and Marte are questionable...

At least A.J vs. Pavano tomorrow is a given - AJ wins.

I wouldn't mind the Yankees and Red Sox both faltering this year... Let the AL East giants know that money isn't everything in sports.

EVERY team spends money, so there's no argument with crap like money. The Rays payroll is slowly on the rise after last year.

So the AL East stands as Jays, Yanks, Sox/O's, Rays. Jays are 10-4, what.

I'd like to shoutout to the White Sox for murdering the Rays today.

Lol. Padres, Mariners, and Marlins. All doing better at the start. 11-3 victory over the Angels was good. I called Ichiro's Grand Slam right as the pitch was being tossed.

Mariners fan here, obviosuly, but yeah.

I give my Props out to the Marlins...Best record in baseball....I underestimated them.. A LOT. A great team. Finally back together.

Boston played a good game....Especially with that no name pitcher Masterson I believe...he crushing the batters. Ortiz finally had a good game...A Triple? Even for his size...I'm surprised.

I was ****** when I heard the O's got crushed... but yeah. Tied in the standings between Yanks and Red Sox... would've made me feel a lot better if we played tonight and won so I wouldn't need to worry about the Sox breathing on our necks...

I thought Randy Johnson and the Giants were gonna get creamed again, he proved me wrong. Hope he gets to 300 Wins soon.

Also, Chien-Ming Wang needs to get his foot up more. He's losing velocity and his entire approach without it.

The Marlins have a good record because they've played the Nationals 6 times.
