Man, I just have no interest in Phillies V Yanks.  Oh well, at least the Phils have a chance to prove they're true champs, its been almost a decade since a team has done so, with the last one being the Yanks.

Alright, lets go Philly!

Although, I gotta say, that move my Damon stealing two bases on Sun was pretty sweeeeet.  I think I did that in little league once.

Oh well. Doubt they'll defend the title and prove to be real champs.

That said. Go Cubs go!

Yay Yankees!

While I don't think this team will have the firesale of the Florida Marlins, they'll be different next year as Matsui, Damon, and probably more won't be coming back.

Still, this is the first Yankees team 2001 that I've liked a lot. I've been a disheartened fan through the ridiculous and poor spending the past few years. They spent a crapton of money last year (and always), but they spent it on the right people. That's something that haters of the '90s Yankees don't geit; yes, they spent tons of money, but they got the right people.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting excited for baseball season to start. I'm not sure why, because my Indians are going to be horrible this year, and in hockey, a sport which I like more than baseball, my Flyers are still very much in the hunt. I'm just in the mood for baseball, I guess; I bought MLB The Show when I was in GameStop picking up a Monster Hunter demo. Is anyone whose team is in better shape than Cleveland (basically everyone outside of Pittsburgh and D.C.) getting pumped?

I am pumped every season for baseball! I still need to put away a bit more money so I can get MLB.TV this season. I got it in the last two months of the season last year for $30 and loved it. I just put the game on one monitor and did what ever on my main one.

I think my excitement for baseball will amp up considerably when these two things happen:

1) The season starts
2) I buy MLB The Show

If my fiancee didn't have my PS3 at her place as a Netflix player, I'd probably have bought it already.

Once you get The Show we should play online. I read they really fixed up the online this year, and maybe if I can win a few online it'll take the sting out of the Indians' almost certain 100 loss season.

In regards to following the season I don't pay much attention to baseball.  My teams are the Jays and the Mariners and, ****, those teams aren't exactly contenders.  But every year I visit Seattle for a couple of days to check out some games with my dad, brother and a friend of mine and that's always a good time.  Baseball season means that trip is coming up so I always get pumped.  Hockey is the main sport I follow, but I see that as something to follow on TV (Canucks tickets are pricey) while baseball is something I see live.  I'd love it if MLB expanded and gave a team to Vancouver, even if they had to play in sterile old BC Place.  I'd be a regular attendee.  And there is an unequal amount of teams between the leagues.  The AL could use two more to balance things out.  *hint* *hint* MLB.

I've been thinking about what to do for vacation this year.  I like doing road trips but from Vancouver, south is really the only direction to go.  Too much middle-of-nowhere if you head east.  But I've done that road trip so to see California again, I would need something different to spice it up.  Well there are five baseball teams in California so I wonder if I could do a road trip to see a home game for each team.  My brother is interested but scheduling things might be hard.  Plus while Mariners games are very affordable I have no idea what sort of price teams like the Dodgers or Angels charge.  Those teams are, you know, GOOD.

You can convince me to get it at PAX East. :)

I really don't see myself getting the Show until after PAX East anyway. I've got Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing almost finished for review, then Calling, Red Steel 2, and maybe Pokemon on the horizon. There's no time for games unrelated to NWR!

Mariners are very much contenders this year and will probably win their division. They made some great moves this offseason. They have the best starting two other than the Red Sox starting 3 pitchers.

Hernandez and Lee are going to be filthy in Safeco.

Now the Jays will probably be the worst in baseball this year.

No way, my Indians are going to be way worse. Sucks for a friend of mine, though, who is both an Indians fan and a Blue Jays fan.

I'm getting really in the mood to watch one of the Major League movies right now.

True, thanks by the way for V-Mart! He is AMAZING! When that trade happened I thought are the Indians stupid?

Yeah, our GM, Mark Shapiro, isn't going to have the job much longer. Because he's being promoted to team president. That is not a joke.

I couldn't resist, currently watching Major League 2. I love Bob Uecker; I'd consider listening to Brewers games just to hear him call them. I also fully intend to do in The Show 10 what I did in MLB 2K9, set up the custom soundtrack to play the song "Wild Thing" when I bring in my closer.

After originally being predicted to lose almost 100 games, the Indians are now being picked by some to be as good as a .500 team. What's really going on is that it's such a young and inexperienced team that, despite showing some promise in Spring Training, it's hard to figure out what they're going to do. I'm going to stick with the motto of Cleveland sports fans and say we're going to be pretty good two or three years from now.

When I was in 6th grade, I played on a little league baseball team with Michael Kirkman.  We won all but the championship game, pretty much just because of him.

I don't care about the Giants or the Rangers, so I have very little interest in the World Series this year. I guess I will root for the Rangers, only because I hate the Giants (I don't care either way about the Rangers).
