Since Opening Day is upon us, I will be viewing some time honored classics the next few days

Field Of Dreams
Bull Durham
Pride Of The Yankees

When It Was A Game # 1,2 +3


What say you?


I love Pride of the Yankees! I'd also add Major League, Eight Men Out and The Rookie. Just for fun, and my kids, Rookie of the Year and Angels in the Outfield.

As for Opening Day, weather looks absolutely spectacular for the Braves opener against the Cubs. Me and the family will be in right center, the perfect place for rookie sensation Jason Heyward to hit his first home run!

PLAY BALL!

Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

The Yankees have a tremendous amount of starting pitching. There season as always will ride on the effectiveness of Mariano Rivera and how effective Chamberlain can be in 8th inning relief. I believe the Yankees will at some point miss Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui fortheir clutch hitting. That kind of thing is hard to replace. Robby Cano better learn to start having better at bats in key situations. Curtis Granderson could easily hit 40 home runs this year.

I see this winding down.. But I think he will have a hard time accepting that, and that could be a problem. Cervelli is a very good defensive catcher. If he can start hitting consistantly, this could push the issue with Jorge going into 2011.

And if Vazquez can pitch like he did last year, I think the Yanks have the better roation.. Problem is, I dont think he will.

I like the Yankees except for one thing. With Swisher and Granderson in the lineup, they have 2 high homer low BA guys. That was what the Red Sox used to do back in the 70's and 80's. It seldom worked out. One other thing, I wonder if Posada will ever be an everyday catcher again? His fragility over the past few years has me believing he would be better off at DH.

I'm not as sold on the Yankees starting pitching as you are. Right now, I believe Boston's is better.

I too believe boston's starting 5 is better, but I think the Yankees are better across the 25 man roster.
Joe thinks Posada can catch 120 games this year.
Swisher had an on OBP of around 400 all year, and got big hits when it counted from the games I caught. Finally got DirectTV!
Breakout year for Cano...Don't ya know!
I'm thinking Yankees/Cardinals in the WS

That would be cool from a historical perspective, the two teams with the most titles. Last time they played in the WS was in 1964.

Fun game 1, with the right result.

Can you imagine if all 162 were like that?? I don't know if I could take it...

Once we got the Royals to go to their bullpen it was all over. Zumaya looked good. He only threw 12 pitches, but 10 of them were for strikes and 7 of them over 100mph! Wow!

Are you a fan of the Sox?

I went to Chicago last year to see a Sox/Tigers game and had a great time.

Good crowd, nice stadium and great authentic Chicago dogs at a place about two blocks away.

This was last June, and verlander shut them down. I was right behind home plate, and the locals were shocked to see him throwing over a 100 in the 9th.

Jason Heyward hit a 3-run bomb first swing of his first major league at-bat in Atlanta today.

I think he will. The Yanks are going to get many many quality starts out of this rotation. The key is going to be how the bullpen holds up. And how clutch Granderson turns out to be since he is replacing two very clutch hitters.

I still have nightmares about Vasquez's 04 season here.. and subsequent meltdown agains Boston.
Not sold on Granderson either.
And I think this is the year Hughes finally lives up to his promise.

I like what's going on in MLB right now. There seems to be a healthy turnover of players, moving toward younger ones. Seems like most of the teams have new, exciting young players coming into the fold. Lots of good young talent..As a result, about half the teams have a chance to make the post season. Could be some surprises.

From what we hear now, Vasquez was hurt the second half of '04. I'm not making excuses for him, but i like the fact he WANTED to come back here for a chance at redemption. Show's he has Balls. Cashman Never wanted to trade him anyway...that was a Steingrabber move.
That was a hard hit Granderson got of Lester and hung in there well. Considering hitting lefties is his only flaw, that was a good sign.
I love that I can now see all the Yankee games on Direct TV, as well as other teams like my Cardinals, who are primed and ready to run away and hide in that division.
Yankees are so deep in catching throughout their system, Posada winding down will not be much of an issue.

agreed. I like Cervelli alot, and hope he is the starter next season - with Jorge as full time DH.
They do have a few other prospects as well.

Article in this morning's Chicago Tribune says the Cubs have the highest average ticket price in baseball, just edging out Boston and the Yanks.

Big Papi goes hitless in his first 2 games and when asked about it, he has a meltdown. I think the pressure is on, especially with Lowell sitting on the bench.


The pressue is definitely on (but really, when isn't there pressure in Boston?). I do think he has a point though when the questions start coming after 1 or 2 games. Worth noting that his average at the moment is still nearly a hundred points higher than Mark Texiera (.000).

My kharma must be good! I was just taking a walk and ran into the owner of the local watering hole where I'm a regular. He handed me two box seat tickets to tomorrow's Tigers home opener...said he couldn't use them and knew I'd appreciate them. Opening day tickets are like gold in Detroit. It's gonna be a great day!
