The Mets also need to get some of their hurt guys back soon because they are playing a few AAAA kids right now and they really can't play D. It would be one thing if they had another 156 games against the Marlins but they don't. They need to improve their D and the pen needs to step up or they are going to run into the same issues that bit them last year. But, I'm enjoying 5 - 1 for now.

You can take this to take this to the bank every year- the Mets players will miss games due to a stubbed toe! They are a bunch of pansies

Another Red Sox starter pummeled.

Their starters now have a combined record of 0-6, a combined ERA over 9.00 and have given up too many HRs to count. I know it's early, but Jeezus Krist, what a Horror Show. I'm probably going to tune them out until they get their heads out of their asses. Life is stressful enough. I watch baseball to amuse myself. This isn't amusing.

Saw how poorly the Red Sox have been playing. World Series hangover, maybe?

This is the same pitching staff that went through the iron of MLB in the playoffs while allowing an average of 3 runs a game. Now they couldn't get ME out if I spotted them an 0-2 count.

It's going to be interesting to see how Cora reacts. The Red Sox got off to a great start last year and never let up, so the local sports media (AKA The Legion of Douchebags) couldn't give him any grief. Now they're giving him some and he's getting a little testy about it. He used his starting pitchers sparingly in Spring Training. He said he wanted them fresh at season end. But none of them look ready at the moment and Cora is being second-guessed.

Well, it sure seems like he made a tactical error here, but who really knows. And, it's April 5th, so a tad early to panic.

Could be worse, dad. The sucky Pirates have two wins....both to the equally sucky Reds. Starting pitching okay...bullpen sucks. Gonna be a long season. Fortunately, I have hockey to distract me for two more months, although I doubt I'll be watching the Penguins for much longer. I'm sensing an early Stanlry Cup playoff exit.
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.

I think dad doesn't agree it could be worse. Rick Porcello couldn't get through 5 tonight and got crushed. Red Sox starting pitchers have been awful so far.

I've tuned them out for now. You can't tell, but my fingers are in my ears and I'm yelling Lalalalalalalala.

The WNBA starts in a month. So there's that.

Can the Pirates just play the Reds 162 times?

Went to the Mets-Nationals game. Great day to watch a Mets win. Pen looks shaky but can't argue with 6 and 2.
