He was drafted by the Montreal Expos as a catcher. Judging by this throwing motion, well he picked the right sport.

My Tigers are in ChiTown today!!!  

I have a much better feeling than last year at this time, all of those ridiculous trades that were spoken about at season's end last fall did not happen!!!  JV, Miggy and VMart are all back!!  Unfortuneately, Alex Avila is also, but I guess when Daddy is the GM, you are always guaranteed a job...

 

Just my opinion, the Cubs deserved to open at home as they are the Champs.  They should not have had to start on the road.  JMHO


Hi @redwingsgal wishing the Tigers good luck!!  Are they wearing a patch in honor of their recently deceased owner?    ITA with you about the Cubs and starting on the road. 

I see the game was postponed. I'm guessing the weather did not cooperate.  I have not spoken to my son today, so I have no idea if I  guessed correctly.

A special shout out to all the Mets fans today! Good luck with your home opener.  

 

Your team is the one to beat in the NL East according to the experts/pundits.

 

 


@dmod: Thanks! We won today! The Mets have the highest winning percentage on Opening Day (about 64%) than any other team in the history of baseball. Hard to believe, but true.

@cody2 We love opening day so we were at the game.

We could not believe the pitcher got 2 home runs. He also walked once.

Did you know He actually hit the very first home run of the season.

It was a very fun game. It gave us D-Backs fans a little hope. Last year was so bad!

@Azgal while watching one of the preseason shows on MLB network, the D-backs was one of the improved teams.  They "experts" were speaking very well of the team's improvements!   I hope they are right.
