    2017 MLB Gamethread

    It snowed today in Connecticut, on the first day of April. But, somewhere, spring has already arrived; I'm sure of it. The first pitch of the 2017 Regular Season will be thrown in less than 20 hours.

    Important news from other games

    Opening day. Tanaka stinks. One less Al contender to worry about/ Only kidding but w/o him they are in deep doo-doo.

    His first start I would guess he turns it around, but it is fun to watch.

    Opening day, 2017. Baumardner brilliant! He has a no-no I think. Tanaka was lousy from start to finish. How can the Yankees perform without an ace!

    I think Pineda will have a better year this year, but still, Tanaka did not look good at all today, and that's a bad sign for the Yanks.

    We saw history today. Baumgardner became the first pitcher in baseball history to hit two home runs in the same game ON OPENING DAY! What do you think of that, baseball fans?

    Tanaka pitched well last year and he pitched well this spring. AFAIK there are no health concerns. So in all likelihood this was just a bad day and he bounces back strong.

    All that said, today's game was fun.

    My boy hit a game tying HR on Opening Day after being out all of last season! I don't even care that Bumgarner made history

    I am happy for Tommy Archer.

    I hope that he has a big year.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Giants lead D Backs 3-0, Baumgartner has a non non and, hits 2 home runs. D-Bacls cme to tie it. Giants take 4-3 lead, D Backs come back to tie. Giants take 5-4 lead. Bottom of the 9th no one on. A single a double and 2 more singles. D Backs win 6-5. There may or moay ot be better game all year!

    Totally agree. Thoroughly entertaining game from start to finish. Reminded me how great baseball is.

    Piscotty of the Cardinals got hit with a pitch today, then got hit with a throw when advancing to second on a WP, and then got hit again with a throw while sliding into home, all in the same inning. Baseball is weird sometimes.

    Dreams do sometimes come true...

    It's not Red Sox related, but my gosh, I'll bet that every member on this forum can relate:

    I can't relate at all. My deep, personal struggle to break into the Major League ended abruptly at the age of 18 when I realized how much I hate exercise.

    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    Though I try to find the answer to all the questions they ask
    Though I know it's impossible to go living through the past
