    Meanwhile in the opener the Cubs go 0-13 with runners in scoring position. Are Cub fans going "next year" yet?

    The Nationals are far from a sure bet. They are already dinged up and the do not have a closer. The current closer, Storen, has let me down too many times.

    The Royals, who surprised everyone last year by making the World Series, started off today beating the White Sox 10-1.

    Jays handled the Yanks 6-1 in their opener. But everyone should keep an eye on KC I agree!!

    Lot of folks think KC is a one trip pony.

    I think they will do well this year.

    Every team wins 50 games and loses 50 games. It's the other 62 that tell the story.

    There is no sport more boring than baseball. Curling has more excitement!!! How someone can sit through a 4 hour game and get all excited it's in extra innings with the score tied 0-0 is beyond my comprehension. The only reason I knew the Royals won, is that my cart partner is a huge baseball/Royals fan. He was all decked out this morning in his Royals jersey and hat. He had to call me when the game was over and see if I'd watched it. I told him our television was programmed to not show ANY baseball!!!

    Both of my stepsons quit baseball (after the season ended) because, and I quote, "It's just too boring to play". Neither has ever played it since, not even in a pick up game.

    Their dad played high school ball. Even he couldn't get them back into it.

    Some people can't handle the complexity of Baseball. It's more like chess, you have to have brains and talent to play...not just be 6' 9" 300lbs and know how to hold on to an oblong shaped ball and run. :D

    But seriously, if one can't appreciate the deep strategy inside baseball, it's not for them.
