The Cubbies bandwagon is as overloaded as a third-class car on a Delhi-bound train, with fans and experts proclaiming THIS is next year. I just read that manager Joe Madden has expressed to his team the mantra to follow as they strive to expunge a century-plus of goathood . . . Try not to suck.

Can't you just see that on T-shirts all over the North Side?

15-1 in their first two games, the Cubbie faithful are happy so far.

Tigers start the season undefeated. Bullpen already looks suspect.

Calling out Bautista for that slide is a disgrace.
I can't imagine that's what MLB had in mind when they changed that rule.
If so, they might as well call it Little League.

Knew the Giants wouldn't go undefeated... Caught a bit of the game, but this thing called work got in the way.

The call yesterday on Bautista was a joke. I understand trying to get people to go for the bag and not slide 2' away. But that?!! That's baseball.

Look like a real pitcher's duel in a frigid Bronx tonight. Middle of the 3rd Yanks lead Astros 9-5.

Oops. End of 3rd, 12-5 Yanks.

Not for nothing, but the last time the Sox started 3-1 was 2005. For my sanity this summer, I'm just hoping for competitive games on the south side. Cheers to baseball season gents!

Giant's game was great! Way too early to know for sure, but get the sense they can actually come back down 2-3 runs.

Cubs have 29 runs in their first 3 games.

They are forecasting frost in Hell.

Default Re: 2016 MLB Thread

So I finally saw clips of that Texas/Toronto mess. My thoughts? First, the take-out slide is as much a part of baseball as is the "neighborhood" play, and since Odor was clearly off the bag Bautista was actually safe, so there was no possibility of a double-play anyway . . . except that there was, since that is baseball. Am I making any sense? Second, a shove to the chest is not part of baseball, and a sock to the jaw is most definitely not part of baseball. If a few players get fined or suspended, that's cool. But if Odor doesn't get absolutely hammered, that stinks.

Did you know that Ichiro entered action tonight needing only 4 hits to pass Pete Rose? Yes, nearly 1300 of those came in Japan, and this milestone is a HUGE event over there, but very few people in this country are paying any attention. Not surprisingly, one of those people is Pete Rose, who in typical Charlie Hustle fashion is dismissing it as meaningless, even going so far as to sarcastically suggest they count Ichiro's high school hits as well. In contrast, Suzuki just shrugs and says he simply wants to go out and do his best every chance he gets.

If Rose had a tenth the class as does Ichiro, maybe the half of baseball who hates his guts would have a better opinion of him. Me, I just hope Ichiro becomes a first-ballot HOF player, and that Rose never gets within a hundred miles of Cooperstown.

When it comes to the MLB record, i don't disagree with Rose. I am just appalled he handles this with all the grace God gave a rabid badger . . . again.

Yeah, Rose isn't exactly the King of Subtle.

Epic collapse by the Tigers yesterday. Geez.

I did not know Bill Belichick was scouting for the Red Sox now.
