    O's on pace to finish 162-0. Unfortunately, my wild card prediction is looking inaccurate right now, but I'll take the division title. Being wrong is hard but someone has to do it.

    I was worried when I saw Tillman's start being moved up. Britton looked great today. The bullpen is my biggest concern right now. Gonzalez is a joke, and if it weren't for Markakis' great grab to end the game on Saturday Gregg would suck too.

    I think you're a year too early with that one. If they keep developing, and barring any major injuries, I think they'll be in competition in 2012.

    Bold prediction: Os and Royals in ALCS.

    Watch it happen.

    Does anyone know if Cubs games regularly sell out? I'll be driving cross country towards the end of April and will be traveling through Chicago for the first time. Would like to stop at Wrigley, but I'm not 100% sure what day I'll be there. I'm thinking either the 7:05 game on Tuesday the 26 or the 1:20 game on Wednesday (both against the Rockies). Will I be able to buy tickets at the gate?

    ^Good gracious, look at that gentleman on the right! Imagine sitting next to him for 9 innings. Thanks, tickets at the gate it is. Are there any must-have eats or should I stick to hot dogs? edit - this is pretty cool - rankings of all parks on a variety of criteria: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/stadiums

    Giants: Reigning WS Champs. Better pitching AND hitting than the Dodgers.

    But Dodgers (as usual) up one in thug like violence.

    Absolutely not. Mostly because they're fucking terrible. During the week you can easily get seats.

    Wrong. When the Cubs are halfway decent it can be damn hard to find tickets if you aren't buying in advance.


    also, goddamnit tigers....

    The reigning AL Champs might have something to say about that. Rangers are going 162-0 this year. Nellie Cruz is on pace to be the first guy to hit 162 homers in a season.

    lol. They do look great, although, you know, first week of the season and all.

    Still, it's nice to have a bright spot in the sports landscape around here.

    There will certainly be ups and downs during the season because that's the way baseball go.

    And when will this be? Have you SEEN their roster?

    Has there ever been a more dangerous (to a pitcher's health) manager/pitcher combo than Dusty Baker and a guy who throws 105 mph? Seriously, Chapman's arm might literally explode. Literally.

    That's funny. Cub fans still talk about the fan that got in the way as ruining their chances in '04. I think Baker gets more blame for ruining a young staff that looked like it could dominate for many years.

    And when will this be? Have you SEEN their roster?

    But...But...Carlos is back in the starting rotation!?

    Milwaukee should win that division and challenge SF and Phi.
