    Going to opening day at Turner Field, totally stoked. Might even be warm by then!

    I think the Twins will become my team for this year.

    The Twins? Of all teams.

    I'm going to Opening Day as well. Can't wait to freeze my ass off.

    I'm switching from the Royals, FWIW.

    Going to be a frigid high of 72 on Monday.

    Maybe I'll see Texas if Darvish pitches. Houston would need to pay me, although they have some decent young hitters...

    Opening Day ticket prices are getting crazy. I sold a pair of for $330 last year. Same section is damn near $400 this year.

    Nice article about Rick Porcello in today's Freep. Really can't concentrate about the Tigers, right now, due to the two big basketball games tomorrow. For the first time, both Michigan and Michigan State are in the Sweet Sixteen.

    Today, the temperature should reach the high 40s. It can only get better for opening day.

    ^ are you going to the game?

    Porcello may have turned the corner. People forget he is 24. He's averaging a K/9 in spring and hasn't walked a single batter. Impressive spring stats.

    I can't wait for the Sweet 16. I'm going try to wake up in time for the Michigan game but doubtful. I'm definitely seeing the MSU game. My friend and some other alum living in Shanghai have a reservation at a sports bar here.

    Good to see enthusiastic fans here. Wish we had more.

    Sorry Tigers fans, but this year it will be a Freeway series.

    Very happy Lohse landed. I picked him up with my last pick in the draft.

    I have a very NL Central heavy squad.

    The Detroit Tigers roster is closed. It will mean having a closer by committee--shades of Billy Martin.
    Tigers broadcaster, Mario Impemba, has Kansas City in 2nd place in the AL Central. After the Tigers, of course.
    Now.....back to Sweet Sixteen basketball.
