I think they will be fine ....... the Mets that is. Spring games almost over and they are in first place in the NL. Should be a good year like last year. But I am hoping this time in the last couple of games of the season they do not go into a slump like last year.

OMG that was brutal to see. being in 1st all year and then just losing it all. Sinking the way they did was hard to watch.

Sure, they will probably be fine, but their ST performance has little to do with it, if it did than it mean the Rays will win their division this year and the Yanks will be last. I doubt it.

Speaking of the Rays, my last spring game is today with them hosting the Reds.

Was anyone else a nut like me getting up at 6 am to watch two teams that aren't even mine? Talk about brutal, even worse for the folks out west a 3 am start for them. UGH!

No your right ..... spring training does not indicate anything in which what will happen in the real season. I didn't say anything to indicate that the Mets would remain in first place in the NL

Sorry, guess you didn't really mean anything by bragging about them being in first place during spring training.

Figures, the last game ever for the long enduring AL Lang Field in St. Pete and the Rays go out in style by losing, typical. At least the new colors are slightly growing on me, must be my delirium over the season getting into full swing being just a few days away.

I notice no one else owning up to being one of the fellow 6 am cuckoos!

Happy Opening Day (on our continent) to all!

Bragging (I think they will be fine?) ....... your funny Was just a fact I saw. First time I even looked at it. Now Florida is in first by a .5 game. Bragging there too I guess? ST doesn't count anyway as we all knowwwwwwwwwww.

It's still pretty early, but they all still count. Still better to be 4-2 than 2-4.
Jays off to a good start with a sweep of the road-weary BoSox.

Uh, the ones we were talking about were the spring games, not this past week.

But, yes it is early, guess the Detroit fans aren't happy only one week and they were booing already.

Of course, it was just those were the ones we were mentioning NOT counting . Unless you weren't even paying attention to any of us and just made the statement that even though they are early they count.

Don't count out those Redbirds! 4 starting pitchers on the DL while the subs are super so far. If things line up with Mulder, Pineiro, Clement, then Carpenter coming back strong then the bullpen gets better. Duncan, Pujols, Ankiel, Glaus... that's a dangerous middle. Adam Kennedy looks like he did with the Angels. Molina's been hot since postseason 2006. Rasmus on the way. Barton looking sharp.

Suddenly this rebuilding team is looking deep and could play spoiler to either the Brewers and Cubs. If everything goes right, the Cards could be the surprise team in the NL.

Tigers are having some problems. Lost Willis as well as other pitching issues. White Sox flirted with a no-hitter.

Nats also having problems, nice new ballpark though.

How about them Diamondbacks? They are leading in just about everything.

Too bad the good show between the Yanks/Sox got rain delayed, awesome defense on behave of the Sox.

Even Longoria is scheduled to make his ML debut tonight for the Rays. Maybe I am only one happy about that.

Probably staying at the Tigers' thread, kind of bragged a little ealry here I guess.

I was afraid the Yanks would be mad coming into the TB after the Red Sox roughed them up. The Jays have got a nice lineup.

Is it too late to trade back for Brad Lidge? Jose Valverde sucks.

I swear, St. Louis or somebody must have put a hex on the Houston closer's role. Every closer the Astros get goes to shìt.

Shawn Chacon pitched 8 shutout innings tonight against the Phillies only to have Valverde come in and give it up like a high school girl with no self esteem. He not only blew the save but lost the game.

And apparently, Lidge has had a bounceback start in Philadelphia.

Speaking of, what happened to Tom Gordon? That just dawned on me last night.

Did he finally retire or did the Phillies just move him to another role in the bullpen or is he with somebody else now or what?

Sorry guys still here but internet challenged some days with my laptop.

The Tigers pitching will come around. The two missing relievers will return. The hitting will take care of itself.

By the way they are beating Cleveland 10-1 right now.

As Sparky Anderson used to say you judge a team after 40 games not 10!
Sparkey was always pleased to start 500 after 40.

With this start it will be tough but they do have the line up to do it.
But I would rather be 10-4.

The Tigers appear to be putting it together, and the Diamondbacks are still eating everybody up. Cardinals are still hanging in despite what many consider to be a questionable pitching staff. My boys have actually won a few this week and actually lead the Yanks by half a game, that is very unusual this late in April.

He's been nursing a sore hamstring, was in the line-up last night as the DH. Can't believe we took these last two games, we have rarely won games against Wakefield and the kid for Boston last night was awesome.

It's good to see a Rays fan, by the way...

Here's hoping Beckett can break the Sox' 4 game, somewhat flu induced skid. To lose like that on your second to last hitter - tough.
