    I know there aren't many baseball fans here, but the season is under way. My Diamondback's season is already over with 2 pitchers going under the knife already with Tommy John surgery. However, there is something to cheer for.

    Arizona Diamondbacks and the $25 corn dog

    Arizona Diamondbacks and the $25 corn dog ArizonaSports.com

    "Oh hello there, D-bat Dog.
    What is a D-bat Dog, you may be asking? Well, allow us to enlighten you.
    The D-bat Dog is 18 inches of corn doggy goodness that happens to be stuffed with cheese and bacon. It also comes with a side of fries, and it can all be yours for the price of $25.
    Is that a good deal? At the very least, it is a deal. So at least there's that."

    The Cards should be tough. They really have a stronger team than they did last year, imo.

    If the Crew can keep Lohse, Gallardo, and Garza healthy as well as our 3-4-5 hitters in most of our games we should do ok.

    Our offense definitely isn't hitting on all cylinders yet. Hitting into a lot of double plays.

    Funny thing is I can't stand any New England team, especially the Sox though. Maybe it's different elsewhere but up here Sox fans are really (this is a very broad generalization) obnoxious. Two wins in the last 96 years and you'd think they are the team of the millennium.

    That's not to say there aren't obnoxious Yankee fans too though. I'm just sick if hearing about the Sox.

    Funny story, I went to Fenway for a Sox/Yanks game and some guy was coming back to his seat. He dumped a beer on another guys girlfriend and that lead to a pretty good brawl. They all got thrown out, it was a good show!

    They won in 2007 as well, there are obnoxious fans everywhere but I hear ya. I've found that most fans in the cities of Boston and Philly to be obnoxious.

    Honestly I'm just giving you crap at this point. I used to love baseball but in my hectic life baseball and college sports have fallen WAY down the list of things I have an interest in. I love watching baseball live, can't do it on TV though-it's unwatchable to me.

    I'm a Yankees fan but the teams of the last few years are not the Yankees I know. The teams I loved were the teams if the 90's when most if their stats came up through the farm system and they had great pitching. Now it's a bunch if overpriced has beens.

    I will still say though, that Cooperstown is amazing and if you're even remotely interested in baseball it's worth a visit. I've been 3 times, twice during induction weekend. I got to shake hands with Don Larsen and Pete Rose is always in town signing something that weekend.

    Oh I agree, the Sox are the same way and the Dodgers and (insert most teams here). I agree with baseball on TV as well, unless its the playoffs.

    I would take that. Anything postseason I'm happy with.

    I'm just happy we have a halfway decent starting rotation this year. Now, the bullpen has yet to prove itself.

    I anticipate my DBacks finishing 10-15 games below 500.
