    MLB 2019 MLB Season Discussion Thread


    That’s right folks, the MLB season officially gets underway tomorrow at 5:30 AM in Japan, where the A’s and the Mariners are going to go at it for two games. This is the thread where we can talk about all things baseball as the season progresses and (hopefully) our favourite teams do well. Of course, as a Jays fan, I’m under no illusions that we’re going to be pretty bad this year, but I’ll still cheer them on as always.

    Here’s to all the luck for each of your teams, unless you’re a Yankees fan.

    I think it'll be a down year for the BoSox. I'd be surprised if they make the playoffs, there's a lot of questions with the team. Good luck to the BJ's, I mean Blue Jays, like you said, at least you're not a Yankee fan.

    Bullpen is the only question mark and it was last year to... how’d they do?

    Like I said awhile back, this is the first time in a long time that San Diego has been excited for baseball season to start. Padres have looked pretty solid in spring training, hopefully they can do that in the regular season. Macho Manny Machado has a lot of fans here excited, myself included.

    I’ll be going to our home opener next week, which sold out pretty fast. We managed to get tickets for the park area of the stadium, which is just as good imo.

    I think Boston has a great chance of repeating but we all know how tough that is these days. On the Jays side of things, I just hope they play competitive baseball for the most part. I'm sure they're going to have some stinkers along the way but the nucleus of this young team at least gives us fans some reason for optimism.

    I've got tickets for Monday, April 1st and Wednesday, April 3rd and seeing as the Jays are playing the Orioles they've at least got a 50/50 shot of winning.

    You know when you have an Offseason like the Phillies had you have to excited to see how everything works out. I can never gauge how a team will do before the Season, hand on the Bible I didn't expect the Eagles to win a Super Bowl with the way they played in Preseason. With all of that, hopefully the team stays healthy and we will be able to compete for the NL East all Season while having some damn intense games heading into the Playoffs.

    Trout 430 Million over 12 that's a bummer as if the Angels are going to be competing for a World Series Crown anytime soon. So much for Batman answering the Bat signal, he hit a Detour.

    I want your optimism...only the bullpen? Sale's velocity is down and he can't finish a full season. Who's playing 2nd and/or 3rd? Do we have our catcher problem figured out yet?

    Same as last year on all of those ?? As for Sale let’s not put a nail in his coffin just yet. We won last year with no Sale pretty much and the same guys playing the infield. I fucking hate when Boston “fans” dwell on nothing but the negative. Let’s at least wait til the all star break before we talk about not making the fucking playoffs.

    When is being realistic, dwelling on the negative? I'm don't have blind optimism, thinking everything will go as well as it did last year. Sale is fragile, Price can still get lost in his head. Pedey should retire. Brock and Nunez aren't fulltime players. So, is it the triumvirate of Devers/Holt/Nunez at 2B/3B? Not dwelling on the negative, but we did have Kimbrel in the bullpen last year and he's not walking through that door. The only thing locked in is the OF, DH and SS. 1B...I guess. It's a long season, they saved money this off season, but winning the off season doesn't mean a thing...we'll see.

    You guys could be a Pirates fan where we seem to really just have decent pitching and that's about it. I mean if Marte, Bell, Polanco, and Kang all pull their heads out of their asses we might be ok but we are mot going anywhere. I am guessing between 70-80 wins.

    Nice slugfest to start the season off this morning, though I think that'll be the last time I try to watch a game at 5:30 AM EST.

    It was great to see Ichiro get that nice sendoff from the fans when he came out of the game. I know he'll probably play in tomorrow's game as well but that may just be it for the guy.

    They can't be as bad as some of the goofs they had on Facebook Live last year.

    Ichiro officially retired after today's game. I think we can safely say he'll be a first ballot hall of famer.

    However, he did play for the Yankees so that should help his case.
