    I'm kind of curious as to what the future holds for the Mets with their current front-office problems.

    I hear the first time wasn't his fault. A planner from the Hills was buying him shots at the Townsend to get him to autograph his baseballs.

    Bad news for the Cardinals - Wainwright gone for the season. That's going to be tough to absorb.

    Go Tigers!

    With the exhibition games just starting, let me say, once again.....

    Go Tigers!

    Detroit's ball club should be competitive this year. Last year's string of injuries slammed the door on what was a nice first half of the season. No injuries, please.

    Tigers have a solid lineup, a staff that might be among baseball's best, solid middle relievers and solid closers. No injuries, please.

    Weak at catching, because Victor will not be behind the plate too much.

    Here comes a new season. Tigers are in 1st place!

    The only silver lining is he should be as good as new when he recovers. But, it's going to be real difficult for The Birds on the Bat to replace Waino. "Don Tony" does, however, like being an underdog and typically gets his teams to respond.

    Just out of curioiusty, how do you guys follow your respective team if you live "out of market". For instance, I live in the southern california market, so i get pounded with dodgers/angels crap. For my Giants fix last year i a few options:

    a) listen to the game on the am band which carries Giants game unless the Lakers are on, which preempts them
    b) catch games via MLB at the Bat mobile app. For $15 bucks i got live audio anywhere with my phone, plus in game highlights and a free game a day (live video). Eats up my battery though
    c) National game on ESPN or TBS or fox saturday game of the week
    d) when the gmen play the dodgers on either Primeticket (FSN West) or local KCAL 9 (hottest news anchors ever btw).
    e) crappy easy coast biased ESPN highlights

    So how do you guys stay on top?

    I'm kind of in your boat - halfway in between two market areas, yet slightly closer to one (I'm talking about 50 miles closer, if that) so it's been given to the other team (I'm a Rangers fan, and Austin is in the Astros' market). I use similar elements as you noted above, adjusting for geographical name differences. I've also occasionally used MLB GameDay along with the radio (I also usually have a GameDay window up and placed in the corner of my computer screen, sans radio, if there's a day game and I'm at work). I've contemplated buying MLB network or buying a package on MLB.tv, but I can't seem to justify the cost.

    I also check the Rangers' website daily, and usually will hit up the ESPN Rangers team page, as well, especially if I can't catch a game.

    They gave that to me as a gift for the end of the season for being a At the Bat Mobile season subscriber, but it is tough to justify $99 a season cost when i have kids and other stuff I can easily apply that too, which is why i like the $15 radio app. Plus i can't really be glued to live video during the day, yanno work .

    3 Days & Counting!

    There are a couple teams "eating" big salaries - sure would be nice to earn several million to leave the team and do nothing - C. Silva (11.5), L. Castillo (6), O. Perez (12), although Castillo & Perez are trying to make other teams rosters.

    I'm sorry but there were not 9000 people in attendance at Jacobs field last night, maybe half that. Also, there were a lot of empty seats for the Cardinal's home opener last week. Is attendance down?

    There is an article in this month's ESPN Magazine about the Royals and their farm system. The folks at ESPN believe the Royals will become contenders in their division (and perhaps the whole league) by 2015. They compared them to the Yankees in the late 80's/early 90's in terms of talent being developed in their farm system.

    They had a good, quick, discussion of that exact topic on the Slate sports podcast, Hang Up and Listen, a few weeks ago.


    As a Tiger fan, it was nice to see our bats come alive in the new Yankee Stadium last week (who's don't there though?) hopefully we can use the remaining two games in Baltimore this week to show that the Orioles pitching isn't all it's being portrayed as. The birds have only given up 4 runs this season so far? Seriously? Come on Tigers, let's show them what Miggy and Bosch and Mags can do!

    Manny being Manny...


    Well you knew it had to happen sometime. Manny was going to screw around and the Rays will be left to figure it out with a replacement. So much for my Manny Prediction, although it didn't take as long as September...

    For the year, he went 1-17, made $87,000 and said bye-bye with retiring (instead of the 100 game suspension).
