Somehow I thought they started on Mondays every year but last year most teams started on a Thursday. I retract my objections

At least the game was on this morning.
Colon had a pretty solid outing. 8IP, 1ER, 86 pitches. I know the Mariners offense isn't anything special, but that's a solid 1st start.
Giants make Cain richest righty.

Giants general manager Brian Sabean has said for years his priority is to keep his pitching staff intact for the long haul -- and that hasn't changed. Two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum reached a $40.5 million, two-year deal in late January.

Now, if they could just get out from under that Zito contract (they have a buyout after 2013).

Birds are flying out of water
Underneath the sky
I run up to the rainbow girl
just to pass her by
I'll never have a change of heart
My swan will never sing
I have no heart the swan is gone
And now I wear the wings
Well the price of Cole Hamels just went up too
AFTER covering baseball for six years, after visiting every major-league outpost in the sport’s vast empire, I’ve learned a few things.
I know where to find marvelous Mexican food in Milwaukee, super sushi in Toronto and juicy bison burgers in Baltimore. This did not happen by accident. Unearthing a destination’s culinary charms became a challenge, if not a mission, and certainly a point of pride.
The rhythms of a baseball season, particularly its preponderance of night games, meant that many meals — more than I’d care to count — were scarfed down in a rush, at airports and in press boxes. Lunch, then, became something to savor, a time to decompress and relax, and for that hour or so I was determined to eat something tasty, and to take whatever time was needed to hunt down that one special source.
I know this doesn’t square with the popular image of the sports reporter: an Oscar Madison type who subsists on hot dogs and popcorn. And I wasn’t always a foodie, having grown up in a Philadelphia suburb where diversifying your palate meant taking out Chinese food instead of Italian. My wife still credits herself with introducing me to sushi and feta cheese.
Reds were kind of stuck with Votto. If they gave him that big extension, people are gonna say, "How could you give him that much money?" If they let him go, people are gonna say, "How could you let the face of your franchise go?" Had to pay him big or lose the face of their franchise.
Big Opener today. Get it done Cards
Let the games begin.
I want to see the Marlins new stadium.
Finally baseball is back!!!
Cardinals vs. Marlins tonight on ESPN @7.
Seems strange that the reigning WS champ opens up on the road.
MLB app on Xbox is beautiful. I can't wait for tonights game.
That monstrosity in the outfield at the Marlins' Park is so garrish, even Liberace thinks it's too much.
My home town was carved out of swampland.
