    Default MLB thread - no redundant redundancies in the title

    But there is a spelling error. We can't do anything right here.

    The Yankees got their first win yesterday meaning the 2013 baseball season has officially started.

    Obviously, the Yankees will win this year like they did the previous year. If this year was 2010, which it appears to be three light years from here.

    I bet Yankees fans really hate Fister after today, even though that did look like it hurt. I hope Nunez is okay.

    Tigers were off to a pretty slow start in Minnesota, because their bullpen was awful, and they didn't get any offense after the 3rd inning or so in those games. They won today, though. Finally got some HRs, and Drew Smyly was fantastic in relief.

    That did look painful, but they said during the game that Nunez would be fine, just that he'd be bruised there for a while. Fister was off today though, but still ended up getting us the winning by keeping the damage to a minimum. I thought Rick did pretty good yesterday at keeping us in it, 3 runs was definitely not challenge for us to over come, but as stated, offense started off cold.

    I say better to get a slow start then get our hopes up like last year with the 9-0 or something...and then crash. Anyway this win should spark the Tigers line up, definitely loving the 9-1-2 hitters right now (Infante, Jackson, and Torii) because of how much their getting on base. Also if Seattle can keep this 10 inning league, the Central will have a 5 way tie going into tomorrow. To early anyway to worry about that XD

    The white sox don't have the starting pitching depth to have a chance. Sale and Peavy wiop be great, but that means nothing if the other three go nowhere.

    The O's are ridiculous right now. How the freak is Chris Davis hitting like this?

    So I've been thinking about Davis and his 4 home runs in the first 4 games and 16 RBIs. Only 3 players have ever matched this. Willie Mays, Nelson Cruz, and Mark McGwire. Guess what all 3 have in common....thats right. PED use or accusations of PED use. <_<

    By that logic, every player to have ever had a really hot week was, is or will be on PEDs.

    Let's put the kibosh on making baseless accusations right here, shall we?

    I forgot how in your face you are on this thread when you don't agree with someone.

    I'm sorry you think "holier than thou posts" and "not agreeing with you" are the issues here. You're right, we should keep accusing people of PED use without evidence, the epitome of reasonable and intelligent discussion.

    I'm kind of interested as to the amount of losses the Astros are going to have. It's kind of the main draw for me this year sans the usual stuff.

    Possibly one of the worst strike calls I have ever seen ends the game for the rays

    http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8118/8...7cfd4de4_o.gif In fact, 6 pitches to Zobrist in that sequence, none were in the zone, none were swing at. yet he struck out looking

    No arguments here... that was flat out lousy. Umps just keep getting worst as the years go on

    It was even worse given the fact that we had Longoria who was 3-4 and 4-4 getting on base tonight coming up with a man on 2nd in a 1 run game against a wild pitcher.

    Maddon after the game: That call cannot happen in a major league baseball game.
    Foster's explanation: AJ caught the ball early

    Wow...that's really unfortunate.

    On another note, I was shocked yesterday at how much Cleveland lit up Price, normally left handed pitching kills those guys. Price is up there as one of the better left handed pitchers imo (CC and Sale are the other two)

    Price has looked bad this season. Not sure what is up with him

    Marty Foster on the call...now:

    "Had I had a chance to do it again I wouldn't call that pitch a strike.''

    Gee, thanks a lot. Makes a lot of difference to the team you screwed

    It's too early to count him out right now though, 2 games in doesn't speak numbers.

    The Cubs really seem to be struggling with scoring runs.
    Also Carlos Marmol has been struggling again as their closer as well, but he did ok in today's game.

    Stinking Astros are going to throw a monkey wrench into this playoff race later this year. They are basically a free win.

    Why u give us your garbage NL?

    Because they don't have but two players who can hit worth a damn, and one of them isn't hitting right now.

    It was a scoreless inning, which is good. It was not a clean inning by any stretch, and one break in the other direction could have made it very, very ugly.

    But... won't that benefit your Rays, as you now get to play them six times a year annually, guaranteed?

    Peavy up against the nats tonight , he was pretty good in his first start, but he needs to try and go 7 innings. Lucky not having to go against strasburg in the series. Winning the series andthe first three overall to start the year would be huge.

    So these next three games against the Jays are gonna be the same three pitchers the Tigers used in Toronto last year when they acquired Sanchez. I feel he'll definitely pitch better then that time, Rick didn't do too bad his last start, but hopefully he'll keep the ball in the stadium, and Fister needs to get far more consistent in his pitching, he was pretty bad against the Yankees, yet somehow effective enough

    Eh. Win at least two out of three from the Jays and hope the Nats help the Tigs out. That's really the best you can hope for. KC and Minny are playing each other, so whatever.

    EDIT: I don't think they win this first game, though. Brandon Morrow was excellent against the Tribe. Sanchez is going to have to be lights out, especially since the Tigers bullpen, to put it lightly, is a dumpster fire right now.
