It's opening day and there's no baseball thread?

Usually some dope moves it to the defunct baseball board and kills the discussion, but yeah, would be good to have a running thread for the season.

Agreed.  I don't think there's any problem having it in Off the Wall.  Doesn't bother anyone and it usually turns out to be one of the more mature, civilized, educated and informed discussions on the board.

 

Harvey's last start in pre-season set my mind at ease .... a little.  I'm worried that Matz is gonna be out till the All Star break.  If Wheeler can stay healthy, though, that should be okay.

 

Looks like Duda is hurt again.  I think we'll see a lot of Bruce at first and Conforto in right.  As long as Bruce isn't a liability on the field, I'm fine with that.

 

Looking for great things from the Metropolitans this year!!

Pretty much sums it up, except that the Mets need an upgrade at catcher.  And if Matz and Wheeler can throw during the first half of the season, then I'd consider Matz to be trade bait.

Bumgarner and Posey vs the world. Let's go g-men.

Need Brandon Belt to make a step forward and bang out 40 hrs like he should be able to.

I'm a Dodgers fan. Hope this is the year pitching can hold up in the postseason.

I think you were right early last season when you told me D'Arnaud isn't good enoughl, good call. I gotta good feeling about this year, Gug. Let's go Mets!

I'm completely out of the Mets loop....I've always relied on the local media but starting this year that means hearing about the Giants.   :doh:

Nice of the Rays to paint the turf a lighter shade of green. First blown call of the year on an obvious replay goes against the Yankees.

Let's go Sox!!!!!

Looking forward to Porcello, Sale and Price (if he can stay healthy) can do in the rough and tumble East. I really like our lineup, even though Big Papi retired. I think they will still put up plenty of runs.

They have a good lineup.  Getting Sale is big for them.  It took a long time for Porcello to finally realize his potential.  Can he maintain?  

 

I hope the Tribe continues their2016 ways.  I think KC could bounce back too.  That would make for a cool race of small market teams.

 

Cardinals are the absolute class of MLB....have been for a long time but the Scrubs went the money route and will be tough while we figure things out.  Once we do, they can start another 107 year streak.

I'm psyched for the Sox this season, especially because Papi is gone. The East is going to be tough.

As much as I dislike the Sox I always loved Big Papi. Real class act and a great player. He would have hit so many more homers playing in Yankee Stadium with that short right field porch. The game will miss him.
