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.


I've loved the Sox since the '70s. How I latched onto that team is still a mystery in my mind. It made for some interesting Summers with my dad (a staunch Yankee fan -- we always agreed on the Bills and Sabres, it was nice to be opposites in the summer. He gave me so much crap until that great ALCS).

I really came to dislike what Papi made of himself. He was, in his mind, "the" team. I won't miss him.

You AL East guys ... I think this is either Toronto's or Baltimore's year.  I think the Yankees are too young and the Red Sox overpaid A LOT and are realizing how much they miss Theo.

Giving David Price $217 million is overpaying, regardless of the division.

Pennies lost if Price doesn't pitch. You can't overpayin the AL East. If you want to feel smug, then the joke is on you...
You just don't GET the AL East, do you? Best division the last nearly 50 years hands down.

   Since I assume all the posters here are baseball fans, if you don't already, go to MLB and sign up for beat the streak.  I haven't enjoyed baseball this much since I was a kid.   The object of the game is to pick 0, 1 or 2 players a day, trying to get a streak which beats Dimaggio's.

No penalty for not playing, so if you miss a night, a week or a month, you just don't get any at bats.  Also I know more about other teams than I have since the 60's.

 

 

   They also report BA.  You would think it is easy to hit .300 under those conditions.  It is not.

 

   I am also a Dodger fan and don't really follow the AL, but after the series last year I think I will adopt Cleveland as an AL team.  I think it works out pretty well in that Buffalo is a subset of Cleveland or maybe Cleveland is a subset of Buffalo.  You get the point.

Let's Go Mets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's go Braves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

David Price will be making $32MM at the 35 and 36 years old.

They overpaid so badly for him.

Its a terrible deal for a pitcher struggling with injuries right now.

Plus who has struggled in the post season.   I like the mets chances if they could stay healthy.  Not off to a great start.  The NL is so stacked this year.  6 or 7 teams have a realistic shot of taking the pennant in the NL.

Tough time of the year for this fan, after so much time off and we get every ace out there for the first few days, would enjoy watching 4 games today, but time won't let me.  And the risk that games i taped get rained out when i get home to watch...

 

Watched the Yankees hammering yesterday, Tropicana Field was up to its usual tricks.

You can it just takes more money to be considered.

Lets go Red Sox!!!! 

 

Could be a special year, or we could finish next to last in the East...depends on pitching health and if guys from last year can replicate what they did at the plate (Sans Papi of course)...

Brinks eventually says "we've run out of trucks" to the BoSox or Yankees?

I see the braves bullpen is already in "We suck" mid-season form.

Dodgers have such a good young lineup. Seager has a 3 run homer, Pederson a grand slam & 5 RBIs and Turner with three hits.

Nice outing by the Cy Young winner Porcello. Solid 6 1/3 innings 2 runs given up. Garret Cole pitched a solid five innings before coming apart in the sixth. All in all, a solid 5-3 opening day win by the Sox.

Rookie Benintendi with the tater and cluch catch at the wall for the Fenway Faithful today for my game of the day. Always love seeing a bunt or punch single against a dumb shift, helped sink the Pirates in that one big inning with two out.

Amen to that....Benny with a bomb and big catch, great twitter photo of his extension to catch the ball superimposed against the MJ "jump man" silhouette, its beautiful.

 

Agreed on the shift bunt...Cole looked into the dugout PISSED after that.

 

Great game 1 for the Sox (Porcello ran out of gas, otherwise he was perfect, and thats expected trying to go 7 innings and 100 pitches on day 1)
