Man this park in Miami looks like it's going to play like Petco.
the fact Right Center is 419 is insane! Good luck hitting home runs in that park! Good game for St. Louis so far. Lohse has been very impressive.
Theres a first person shot of what the park would look like if you were sitting along the first base line towards the back of the first level of seats, but thats about the only vantage point in which anything in that ballpark is attractive. I assure you that statue of the illuminated whale puke behind the center field fence won't be there come next year.
Kinda weird that my team isn't playing "opening day" until the fourth calendar date of the season in which games are being played.
Someone called in to the Dan Patrick radio show this morning saying the local Miami sports page headline was "New Fish Tank, Same Ole Marlins Stank". The show also had callers call in and give a Masters intro as Jim Nance "...as the heavens shine down on Amen's Corner....azaleas and birds greet the golfers like old friends...the pageantry of the Masters". Quite entertaining actually.
Anyway, it'll be tough against Clit Kershaw, but Go Padres tonight.
I have a feeling the Red Sox are going to disappoint me all season.
What a pitching performance by everyone today!
Anyone watching the Dodger-Padres game see Clayton Kershaw's face when he was rounding first on that double? he looked so miserable.
Longest Opening Day game in MLB history! Blue Jays vs Cleveland 16 innings! Blue Jays win!! WOO! I hope they make it as the 2nd wild card.
And in typical fashion, Manny Acta pulls Justin Masterson after eight and Chris Perez blows a three run lead and the Indians end up losing in 16. I fucking hate my god damn sports teams.
I'm gonna try and check out a game when I'm down, leaning towards Dodgers - Pirates
Drove down to SD yesterday to watch the Dodger game. Good god parking is fucked down there. Nobody knew where they were going, all these small lots were full. Finally found parking all the way by 4th and B .... For 20 dollars! Padres pretty much handed the game to the Dodgers. Then Kemp hit a 2 run bomb to seal the deal. It was funny to see all the Padre fans start turning on their team before the first game was even over.
Heading to the Royals/Halos game tomorrow.. GO KC!!! Sluggerrrrr is the shit!
I love it. The dodgers GIVE them the game, and then Kemp hits a 2 run homer. Sounds more like the Dodgers were the better team and took the game.
Joe Girardi, over-managing in the first inning of the first game of the season, intentionally walks Sean fucking Rodriguez to load the bases for Pena. Pena! A guy who only hits fucking home runs.
Nolan Ryan and Robin Ventura bury the hatchet. Still my favorite sports fight of all time, beating out Robert Parish punching out Bill Laimbeer, and basically any time two goalies get into a fight with each other while wearing all of the gear.
The Padres haven't had a must-win game since the end of the 2010 season.
Ok I'm watching the Dodgers just stick it to the Padres, thanks for the free runs. I guess these are the wins that will help contribute to our .500 record.
Also, Diamondbacks. Undefeated. Aww yeah.
But, yeah, way to show up Pads. A whopping three total runs to start the season. Chase "40 ribbies all year and I play every game" Headley in the three spot, nuff said.
