It's a long season, as Pujois will get hot sometimes in the next few weeks and the Angels will turn it around.

As for RedSox Nation, so happy to see them in shambles

I'm just glad KC is at the bottom early, so we don't have to hear about how stocked they are with young talent and are going to turn it around.

Royals? Pirates? I thought they contracted those teams in the 1990's cause neither of them has had a winning season since before the strike?

Philly has too much pitching to be this bad. They will probably need to trade for a bat though depending on what happens with Howard and Utley. The Angels have a good lineup and 4 really good starters. They will rebound.

Re: MLB Monday, April 23, 2012 (Bonus: Poll)

Philly will be fine. They are only a handful of games behind the Braves and Nats and both those teams are on fire to start the season. It'll even out in the end. The race will be tight but I expect them to take the NL East again.

Angels will be fine too. Couple their slow start with a fast start from Texas and things don't look too pretty. But Texas will go through a weak stretch and LAA will go through a good one and they'll finish 5 or so games out of first place and they'll take one of the two wild cards.

Boston is the big team that I feel is most in trouble. I expect Lester to be fine but Beckett can have hit or miss seasons and the rest of the rotation is a mess. The bullpen flat out sucks and Andrew Bailey isn't going to fix that on his own. I think Ellsbury and Crawford come back strong and the offense carries them but I still think they're a 4th place team.

I want to pick the Angels with my heart, but the Rangers are really running away now. I think the Phillies can still turn it around just fine -- they've got the starting pitching and I don't believe in the Nationals yet.

Loved this tweet today by Buster Olney: "Last year, the Tigers played 51 games against teams of .500 or better. The Orioles played 103."

A great reason why they should get rid of that stupid balanced schedule.

Depressing.

"Detroit 1-8-7" did a scene in that neighborhood and mentioned the lot. It bummed me out.

Good point. I totally agree -- especially now since the change to the playoffs that lets in another Wild Card team, but puts them at a much steeper disadvantage over the division winners than ever before.

Just read this on a local forum:

Quote:
Via ESPN, there are four players with 70 or more plate appearances this season and no home runs:

1. Jamey Carroll
2. Michael Bourn
3. Rafael Furcal
4. Albert Pujols

Good win by CC and the Yankees as they pound Derek Holland for 7ER.

Jeter with a 4 for 5 night and is now hitting over .400 with an OPS of 1.080. Since coming off the DL last year and getting his 3000th hit he has been raking (he's hitting ~.340 since then)

Sutcliffe was just saying some mind-numbingly stupid things on the ESPN broadcast. I think he's accepted the mantle of worst baseball broadcaster working today.

Jason Motte blows the game for the Cards tonight, walking 2 and giving up a 2-run single to end it.
