2. "RE: Spring Training"
I feel the same way about the Jays... it's now 21 years since they won it all and we've been told almost every year for the last decade that "things are looking up" and "this is the year we'll get some good players".

Yeah, we did bring in some good players last year, but injuries and lack of cohesion from having half of the team playing in the WBC killed the team from the get-go. This past off-season, our GM kept telling us that we HAD to get some starting pitchers and to upgrade at second base and catcher. All we've got to show for this off-season is to get rid of Arencibia in favour of Navarro, who is more or less the same kind of player but at least it's addition by subtraction with the attitude change. Other than that... bupkes. And now Anthopoulos is saying the team is satisfied with the players they've got in camp and have confidence we'll contend - even though these were the same group of players he was emphasizing we needed to upgrade upon last October.

Come on, Jays. Don't make me choose a new 'boyfriend'.

I think the Tigers the last few years have been worst than that to Tiger fans.

Really? Even with the numerous playoff spots, three division titles in a row and two World Series appearances in the past 7 years? And having plenty of good players well worth watching in Miggy, Prince, JV, Scherzer, Hunter, VMart, Maggs, and now Kinsler among others? Multiple MVPs, multiple Cy Youngs, etc.

Must be super tough to be a Tigers fan with all that over the past 7 years.

With the latest injuries it's not going to be a fun year already in Detroit after a disaster of an off season trades and FAs.

Now after freeing up all that money for Scherzer, we have no deal so we can kiss Max gone at the end of the season. The Tigers are falling apart really fast this spring.

12. "RE: The Cabrera contract"
Actually, I don't really have a problem with the Miggy contract. He's just had one of the greatest 3-year stretches in baseball history and he's never been hurt until last year when he had the groin tear (and played through it down the stretch and in the post-season, could easily have won another Triple Crown).

5 years ago I'd have said it was a bad contract, but Miggy isn't as pudgy as he was back then and he's got the all-fields skills to keep on hitting for a high average year after year after year, even if/when his power starts to fade. He's also learned to tame his personal demons (alcoholism) and his physique is reflecting that fact.

Five more big years should pay off for the whole contract in today's baseball economy.

So the Mets, who lost their WFAN radio affiliation to the Yankees, have landed on WOR. Where they will now be keeping company with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

So in other words, every loss is now Obama's fault.

Shortest postgame shows ever.

So before the game today, we met every single member of the Mets bullpen.

And then during the game, we met every single member of the Mets bullpen.

*sigh*

It's gonna be a long season.

The good news -- even with the loss, the Mets still have the best overall Opening Day record in Major League Baseball.

I have to interject here that my Astros are in first place. Tied for best place in the win percent column, but still that qualifies, and since thatís the closest they will come, that will do.

The reason I have to take this moment to gloat over the also-running teams is that I know it's momentary, just a prelude to the slide to last place. But since I'm one of the last people that I know of who will admit that they are an Astro's fan, even if it's only on the one day that they are in first, I have to do this.

For now, we're in first place, and the Yankee's can suck it.

Not getting season tickets just yet.

Hey, I'm in the same boat being a Jays fan. The Astros have had their share of decent teams in the 2000s and even a World Series appearance so nothing to hang your head in shame over. At least you're not a Cubs fan. Or worse, a Yankees fan for the insufferableness. *grin*

I like your spirit.

The Astros have had a few decent teams, and even a era or two. Joining the American League is so far a bad experience.

Thought this was a pretty staggering comparison on this 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron's 715th HR...

After their first 11 big league seasons (plus the first five games of this season for Miggy):

Player
Hank Aaron
Miguel Cabrera
Games
1656
1665
AVG
.320
.321
HR
366
366
RBI
1216
1263

Both broke in at the same age (20).

For the rest of his career, Aaron had:

1642 games
.288 average
389 HR
1081 RBI

Don't think Miggy will last as long as Aaron did, but the average and RBI numbers are reachable for Miggy while the HR number is surely out of reach.

23. "Regarding the Ike Davis trade."
It won't be finalized until July. Well, Ike won't be in Pittsburgh until July. It just takes him that long to get moving.

I'm sort of frustrated by this one, mostly because he's one of those players where you keep thinking that if he could ever just completely figure it out, you'd really have something. And it never happens, at least not with your team. Now someone else gets to wait for magic to happen.

So what do you think? .330/28/110?

Well. How about a grand slam in his third game with Pittsburgh? Not only that, but it was his second grand slam of the season and he did it against the same team (Cincinnati) while playing for two different teams.
