Title: It's Baseball Season!
Post by: punatic on March 31, 2011, 07:39:32 AM
It's Baseball Season again!  Woo hoo!  I love this time of year.  I'm a Marlins fan and a Cubbies fan, but mostly listen to the Giants on the radio here in Hawaii (that's who's on on broadcast radio here).  I love listening to the games.  I can take them with me pretty much anywhere I go.  Yeah baby!

Play Ball!

Opening Day is bittersweet for me this year: longtime Cubs radio commentator Ron Santo passed away in January. He was a big time homer but he was also genuinely excited every day at the park and you could hear it in his voice. Hot summer nights on the back porch with a homebrewed wit and the Cubs on the radio won't be the same.

The worst is how he got gypped out of the HoF.

Still, Len Kasper and Bob Branley have a nice presence in the booth.

Time to finish what they started last year. Serving homebrew at the Saturday tailgate. Gonna be some rowdy fools Saturday night making sure those idiot Boston fans feel loved.... ;D


This will be my third year of season tix. Directly behind homeplate, first row of the upperdeck. Best seats in the house if you ask me. Beer stand with Shiner and a BBQ stand just outside my section.

Verlander was doing good, but was definitely getting tired by the end of the 6th.  Too bad the closing pitchers couldn't close. It was a good game! Until the Tigers lost.  :o  You would think I would be used to that by now.  ;D

Thanks! I was there. It was rough.


SF "fans" (term used extremely loosely) filled up the entire section to my left. I swear if I heard UUUUUUUUUUU-----Ribe one more time I was gonna throw one of them off the upperdeck. It was a helluva ride though. I'll take the DH over watching a pitcher hit 7 days out of the week. Ahhhhhhhhh, baseball is here!

You got to go to The Series?!  Man, that's a lifelong dream for me!  Lucky you!

Thanks for being a good sport.  It must have been a tough loss.  Both teams played some great ball.  Buster Posey has got to be Yogi Berra reincarnated or something - amazing poise and game awareness for a rookie. Plus a howitzer for an arm.

UUUUUUUUUU------Ribe plays for the Dodgers now and helped them beat SF in their opener in LA tonight.  One down - 161 games to go...

DH takes the substitution strategy out of play...  Manager chess match and all like that. 

If you play the field you gotta take your cuts too!

Yeah. All three here. I got into season tickets three years ago when the Rangers weren't that great. Got a helluva deal and last year was an even better deal. I'm first row of the upperdeck, directly behind homeplate. Cheap seats, but IMHO, best in the house.


Posey is legit. We'll see what his sophomore season does to him though. Opening day is at 3p for us today. Already pumped!

I feel for you. I bet it was an extremely long off-season for Sox fans considering they didn't even make the post-season. But hey, they have a $200 million payroll now so that should count for something.  :P

Isn't there a "Cubs' Law" or something that states that any forum thread about Baseball will inevitably degenerate into either 1. Red Sox v. Yankees mudslinging or 2. talking about how bad the Cubs are?

I believe we are now 2-1, so NYAH! If we keep this up we'll be over .750 for the rest of the season!

I'm not really into baseball or a huge statistical genius, but I believe if you keep that up you'll be 108-54, or about .667 for the season.  Which is less than .750 in the US, I'm not sure how the metric version works out in France ;)

But like I said, I'm not really into baseball so maybe I'm missing something :) ;D

That's a whole other thread. My ONLY two weeks in the US are planned around football season so I can take the little guy to a Bears game (oh, and so we can see family...) but if there's no Bears... Could you imagine? Fall would just be a period of everything dying or going to hibernate in preparation for winter. There would be nothing to do on Sundays except whatever the wife tells you to do. Surely this calls for an act of congress or something.

  Tubercle wants to apologize for poking fun at the Cubs. They were close; Oh!, so close. I watched the reply of that infamous inning on youtube and being the baseball fanatic I am, my heart went out to them. And I think Bartman is truly repentant and he only did what any fan would have done in that situation. I would hate to be living his life. Tubercle's not going to mention this incident again.

It was a blast except for Blanton giving up 4 runs in the 4th but the relief really held up. Thank God!

Missing the AL MVP for two weeks and the AL Rookie of Year and saves leader for same time. No worries on the Ranger front. The A's offense is a joke and the Angel's offense is old. Both their pitching staffs, however, scare me. Especially they way our guys are pitching.

So, has anyone else been enjoying the free trial of MLB Extra Innings on DirecTV?

The slow motion and replay on the DVR are very cool.  It's amazing to me that the umps get it right so often -  in real time.  Plus you can blast past the adverts!  Althought the Dodgers bobblehead commercial is pretty funny/cool.

With HDTV you can see what the pitch is by reading the threads on the ball.  Amazing!

Gotta go.  Got a Giants - Dodgers game, called by Vin Scully no less, in the can, and it needs watchin'!

I loved it when I had it a few years back. Once I stepped up to season tickets to the Ranger's, I couldn't justify both expenses. Sadly, my D-TV box got fried yesterday and I have to miss the entire LAAA series since the replacement won't be here until Friday. 5 games up with a chance to make it 7 with a sweep. Given up 2 earned runs in past 5 games. Loving the Ranger's pitching right now.

Back to back AL West Champs!

Time for tailgate. Serving my homebrew for first time on the large scale to about 50-60 people. Vienna lager and the house Kolsch. Hopefully no equipment failures.

Hopefully the Phils will come out of their 7 game losing funk and win tonight now that will have their starting lineup back in the swing of things. This might be the best Phillies team that ever graced the city. I hope they can a second chance at those damned Yankees.  ;D

Boy, my Red Sox sure left a brown skidmark on the month of September.  Tonight should be interesting.  I think the Yankees are tanking it just to screw with the Sox.

I hope they make it in but with the pitching and defense right now, I doubt they will make it out of the divisional series.

If it helps, Ranger fans are all pulling for the Red Sox to hold on....Who wouldn't want them in the first round.

Listening to the Giants v Rockies game from SF on the radio.  Last game of the season for the 2010 World Champs.
Don't really give a RA about any teams in the post season.  The Giants came close to playing in October, but injuries took their toll this year.

April 2012 is right around the corner.

I was at the game last night... amazing.  It's midnight and we're sitting in the club level seats after hiding inside during the rain/lightning because the ushers don't care anymore.  Tampa had tied it up as we watched on tv by scoring 7 runs in two innings before the tarp came off and play resumed.  The O's blew some chances and it's two outs, bottom of the ninth, down 3-2 to the Red Sox and Orioles fans are booing loudly trying to silence the Sox fans chants.  Two strikes, people are standing, and all of a sudden two doubles and a single and Robert Andino is being mobbed on the basepaths.  As the Sox walk off the field in shock, they show Longoria's game-winning home run on the jumbotron.  Finally shut up all those "Let's go Red Sox" cheers!

Totally amazing.  I had to go to bed before all that happened and was actually shocked to see the results in the paper this morning.  Last regular games of the season and it goes down to 12 innings.  Wow.
