the salvador pereze injury makes me very sad indeed. i actually tuned in to watch him catch, he's that good.soria? who cares, should have traded him last year at the deadline for anything they could get. it was obvious his career is trending down.also, to red sox fans: just know that i never really liked you or your team, but now that you've hired bobby valentine i passionately hate you. i hope all the bad things in life happen to the red sox and no one else. he is the worst. my only consolation is he wont be on espn saying ridiculous and stupid things anymore. but i hate him and now i hate you.

Joba Chamberlain suffers "open ankle dislocation."What the fuck? Open ankle dislocation? "As we understand, they were at, they have these kids places where you jump on trampolines and stuff like that," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday.Chamberlain had surgery on Thursday night at St. Joseph's Hospital, and is expected to remain in the hospital for several days for the injury, which resulted in an open flesh wound around the ankle. Manager Joe Girardi was at the hospital early Friday morning.Holy crap.

Matt Bush & Bobby Jenks both get charged with DUI's. Bobby said he was on muscle relaxers, and that's why he drove into a car at the strip club. Bush blew blew a .17 and .18. At 5pm.Professional athletes!

Wait, Bobby Jenks is still on the Red Sox? Dammit. Not dammit that he got arrested (although that too) but dammit that we're paying him to play AAA, most likely.

Quote

According to the police report, Jenks was at a Fort Myers bar called Babe's. He allegedly struck two vehicles in the establishment's parking lot while driving a white Mercedes Benz SUV.

Baseball's "season opener" in Tokyo tilts me. ESPN has an opening day counter on their website that shows 7 days left. Why do you open your season in the middle of the night? Every other sport makes opening day an event, MLB hides it. So lame.

Bud Selig...remember the all-star game determines the home team for the WS....he is special.
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

Finally, real baseball is here. Marlins and Cardinals on national television tonight. In the meantime, I think I'll watch a little Yankees-Mets online...wait, why are they opening with an interleague game? Oh, so some teams are still playing spring training games while just two teams open the season. I mean, besides the two teams that opened the season a week ago. Hoooly fuck, MLB.

I don't know what the deal is. Apparently Oakland and Seattle split a 2 game series in Japan in like mid-March? I didn't even pay attention because whatever, but that's what the standings say (well, they don't say it was in Japan). Wait, and Miami and St. Louis just had a one-game-series because Miami is at Cincinnati tomorrow? Why is the beginning of the season so retarded?Anyway, Stephen Strasburg tomorrow.

They've rarely had a good idea to open the season. Usually it's a two-game series, but the 1-game is very silly. The world champions playing the newest ballpark, I guess. I don't hate the Japan thing. 3rd or 4th time they've done it. Probably should have picked at least one team that could hit though. Merry Strasmas!

This is a valid point to just about everything.

I do too, except for the abomination in center. That thing is the worst. I don't get it. I love the aquariums, I like the weird lime green everywhere. I like all the bullpen stands. I like that they limited capacity to 37k. I feel nothing but disgust every time a fly ball is hit to center field. I was hoping one of Stanton's bombs would go out (jesus christ the park plays huge) just to see the whirlygig in action, so I could hate it more.

He's pretty amazing. What isn't amazing is that the Rockies have him starting their 2nd game. He needs 33 more wins to get to 300, and if that happens, that's a pretty damn fun case to put into the Hall.

You left out two important insanities:- After playing two "real" games in Japan, Oakland and Seattle came back and played MORE SPRING TRAINING.- Many teams are opening their seasons today, then skipping Friday, and finishing a series Sat/SunThe whole thing is idiotic.i) The Japan series could've just been exhibition games. Everything the same, but don't make them count. Don't tell me that whether they count in the standings would've made any difference.ii) Have an 'opening day' consisting of more than 1 game. I don't even know why they do it that way, it is insane. If you're going to open with one game, it has to be Yankees/Red Sox anywayiii) The "opening game" has to be part of an opening series. Pretending that baseball fans care SO MUCH about the defending champs playing in a new park is so wrong as to be insane. Making such a big deal of it to play the game on a night by itself, and not as part of the team's regular schedule is nuts.iv) Why are teams playing Thursday/Saturday/Sunday? I don't get it. Play Fri/Sat/Sun or some shit. Skipping a day is just weird.

This is accurate. Same goes for Omar Vizquel, though he probably won't make it another year.

I couldn't possibly disagree with you more. I think it's hilarious and amazing, and I can't believe they put it in. It gives me nothing but joy every time I see it, and I can't understand why people have such visceral hate for it. IT's freaking hilarious.
