    Samardzija is on both of my fantasy teams and is poised for a breakout year. Starlin Castro on both my teams too.

    loved Samardzija as a receiver for Notre Dame.

    Samardzija will get most his wins against teams like Pittsburgh. I don't think he is talented at all and would be a bullpen guy on most good teams.

    i picked the Indians to A.) go out on a limb when i thought it was a toss up B.) because of Terry Francona C.) because i like their lineup

    The Tigers are considerably better than the other teams in the Central. They have a couple of the best hitters and the best pitcher. Their bullpen is merely OK and they have some bad holes in their defense but they're still the team to beat.

    Picking wild card winners is basically a crapshoot, but just for amusement:

    ALC: Tigers
    ALW: Angels
    ALE: Yankees
    WC1: Rays
    WC2: Rangers

    NLC: Cardinals
    NLW: Giants
    NLE: Nationals
    WC1: Phillies
    WC2: Reds

    He had the fourth-best K/9 rate in baseball last year. He's talented enough to start on any team.

    that's fair, i just don't like them and am betting on a small collapse. i wouldn't be surprised if a combination of injuries and regression hurt their lineup big time. they could also get 90+ wins and the division though.

    i like the Phillies pick (and Yankees Smile)

    indeed. Nick, it's actually the other way around. Samardzija is more talented than he is good at pitching. now that he's got more command and some hard, breaking stuff he's even more of a strikeout monster. there's a reason they gave him the ball on opening day.

    Apparently they showed that at the park yesterday. I was coming from tailgating and missed it, which was probably for the best, as I only got through 20 seconds of it when I tried to watch it today.

    Officially 14,213, in reality a lot less than that of course. Pretty typical for a cold weekday 1 p.m. game in early April.

    Cirque du Soleil is getting pretty weak. Just looked like a bunch of fratboys rented leotards, got drunk, and charged the field.

    Samardzija was dealing for 5 innings and has now lost it. Third time through the Braves lineup and they figured this mediocre pitcher out.

    Brett Anderson made swift work of the Houston Strikeouts this afternoon, hope his MRI reveals no injury tonight. Reddick probably out a few weeks.

    it's very exciting that the Athletics are a team you know are gonna beat up on poor opposition these days. i hate it when every game feels like a crapshoot.

    Fuck, Josh Reddick out for a few weeks. He is on my fantasy team and was absolutely slaying it for me.

    pick up the red hot Michael Morse/Chris Davis if you like, or grab a prospect like Leonys Martin, Starling Marte, or Jackie Bradley Jr if you need a new option.

    Dominic Brown and Justin Ruggiano have been picking up buzz this week too.

    laughed my ass off at Greinke getting bumrushed by Carlos Quentin and breaking his collarbone.



    i see both sides of the fight. it didn't look like Greinke hit him intentionally and in context doesn't make too much sense that he would. still, Quentin is one of the most beaned players in the league and had already been hit twice by Greinke. there need to be some consequences for pitchers that stink it up and hit batters. Greinke shouldn't have squared up for the fight, basically.

    A.J. Griffin was very solid last night and, combined with the awfulness of the Angels lineup right now, worked a very efficient 8 innings last night.

    The Oakland A's lead the majors in runs.

    Dunno much about this one in particular, but I usually side with neither party in a fight between millionaires who play a game for a living.
