Holliday is not exactly putting the Pujols thing to rest.

All 17 fans still in the stands agree that the new park is wonderful, ESPN crew.

Great cutoff - could have been a triple.

Mr. Motte is a Bolian and Captain Picard's barber. So now I learn he was also a catcher before converting to a pitcher.

NO FRANCONA...that was pretty much just you who told Papelbon not to give a #### about the guy at first...and it drove me crazy.

Booth crowing over Bonifacio's speed, ignoring that he can't get the freaking ball past the pitcher.

True, but wouldn't speed be the ideal offensive weapon when he has no other?
   309. frannyzoo Posted: April 04, 2012 at 09:57 PM (#4097363)
With those swings, the era of "Jean Carlos Stanton" is gonna be rather small.
   310. Guts Posted: April 04, 2012 at 09:58 PM (#4097365)
That's a winner! Good start to the season.

I kind of like the new park. Plays weird, but it's so garish you have to admire Loria et. al.
   311. Gamingboy Posted: April 04, 2012 at 09:58 PM (#4097366)
Well, see you all tomorrow, folks.
   312. Bote Man Posted: April 04, 2012 at 09:58 PM (#4097367)
Meh. It was pretty much an exhibition game since the Marlins really open the season in Cinncinnattii. Still, this time it counts.

Well off to bring a flamethrower to what will surely be a 1000 post thread on racism.

Hey, with a .341 wOBA he must be doing something right. I mean, its not like a .372 BABIP for two consecutive years would be the craziest thing I've ever seen.

Big sample Jon Heyman tweets...

"no world series hangover for Cardinals..."

Of course it would be Angel Hernandez blowing the call at first. I want this man's employment security.
