michigancat, I know what you mean about Bryson. He's a bit smug. However his book "1927 One Summer" is a great snapshot of America 90+ years ago and I loved it.

Pros:  dug will make another opening day and party like Pauly D.  I will be able to get premium seats to just about any game this year.  So, I will spend lots of time at the K.
Cons: this team is going to be an absolute piece of garbage that will get just thumped.  They will have an incredibly hard time scoring runs.
Pros: watching Mondesi develop
Cons: he will probably have a freak injury
Pros: Keller and a few other young pitchers have potential
cons: Ian Kennedy and Duffy make way too much goddam money and frankly I am pretty tired of Duffy
Pros: they apparently have $5 miller lites now
Cons: probably only 12 ounces
Pros: baseball is great
I hear they're doing some $4.50 Boulevard beer special this year. Not sure if it's on certain days or what, but confidence is rising.

man if only your computer had google you could find out when that special is

i got free tickets to weezer/pixies at the last minute last night. weezer is still just like the most fun. pixies would have been infinitely better at like riot room or something

Weezer 2019 is basically a cover band that covers Weezer and random 80s hits

Guys, the Royals are going to be really bad I'm afraid. Another 95+ loss season.

Interesting. I always thought opening day was around the college basketball national championship. Maybe that's just been our home opener after we started on the road.

usually they are closer together. For instance, in 2016 the Final Four was April 2nd and 4th, and Royals opener was Sunday April 3rd.

What else can I google for you today WC08?

I do like that opening day is on a Thursday. They usually have it on a stupid Monday. Whoever came up with this genius idea deserves a medal. MLB moved up the season about two weeks, right?

Last year it was the same. Opening day was 3/29. They used to start on that Sunday night with a stand alone game and then the rest of the teams open the next day or on Tuesday, so its moved up about 3 or 4 days, but not 2 weeks. Typical opening day has been the first week of April. They negotiated more off days during the season so that's the reason for the change in moving up the opener.

Terrance Gore being on the 25 man roster when we have no right fielder might be the dumbest thing I've ever heard going into opening day.

Soler will be fine in RF. The dumbest move of the spring is Lucas Duda.

My beef with Alex was never personal. I didn’t like him as a QB. I don’t know what that has to do with Danny. This is an odd sequence of posts.

See your previous Alex Smith takes.

I never once heckled Alex IRL or on twitter

cat97 was being pithy and sarcastic to assert that kansans actually AREN'T given preferential treatment from KSU basketball fans.

Every fan base likes local players.

I'm with kRusty on this one. Its stupid and just slows everything down. Old men like to back in parking to prove that they can.

I didn't attend the game, but was downtown for a bit yesterday. Woah boy the Iowa State crowd. They were having fun so I'm hoping they enjoy the rest of the weekend.

If they want to speed up the game, just get rid of instant replay.

get rid of instant replay and warm up pitches for relievers. they should be warm when they arrive on the mound. also eliminate mound visits. they are pointless.

I don't think the people running MLB actually enjoy the game. That's the worst part. Give the game a chance to breathe and continue to evolve.
