Could this World Series be better than last year's unbelievable series?  Verlander tomorrow night.  It's going to be fun, but there can't be another crazy game like 2 or 5..... or can there be?

I don't know what Altuve gets paid, but whatever it is, it's not enough.  It's amazing to see how small he is (especially when he stands next to Correa).

I'm enjoying the hell out of this series but there's something about all these HRs that seems to take the shine off a bit to me, but I can't quite put it to words. I don't think I'm old school by any means but it's just crazy how many they've hit. It would be so cool to see this series capped off with Jack Morris-John Smoltz duel ala Game 7 of the 91 World Series.

I'm just happy to see baseball capturing so much attention the last 2 years.
Don't you ever turn it off

If that happened, this series would go down as maybe the greatest and crazies.  A duel like that won't happen again..... No more complete games let alone someone going all ten innings anymore.  I'm glad the Astros got their first championship.  It continues to be annoying that every NLCS, ALCS, and WS game starts (and ends) so late.

I'm just happy the Dodgers lost.

When I still played I imitated his pitching style in every way I could. Sad to see an icon like him go so early.  :cry:

Happy Opening Day folks! excited to see how this season goes for my Braves in a much tougher division this year.

*ahem* OUR Braves ;)

I'm sadly not that optimistic about the Braves playoff chances even after winning the division. The bullpen is neglected and Folty/Gausman/Soroka/O'Day are all question marks. Don't get me wrong, I am EXTREMELY excited to watch this team with the great position players we have but I was not happy with the offseason. The team I've loved since I could talk is basically part of a real estate investment by Liberty Media and it sucks. But, hey we have Ronnie Beisbol and Freddie Freeman so its not all bad

I didn't love our offseason but really our window is just opening and I don't blame AA for a lack of moves. We still have LOTS of time for these young arms to develop and I think we'd have a hard time competing anyway with Teheran/Gaus on the books and too many prospects needing innings at the MLB level for them to catch a groove. That said,the rest of the division got good this offseason and it's become a lot more difficult for us to succeed solely thanks to Phillies/Mets moves. Liberty Media is still a pretty crappy owner to have and even if we see our young pieces develop well, they might not make moves to keep us in contention cause they don't really care about the success of the team. So we'll see.

Man, fuck Liberty Media...we knew our bullpen would be weak this year. Profits are up from last year and the payroll is down.  I wish we had an owner that cared/would be willing to spend money.

End rant.  The NL East will be tough this year.
