Opening Day — Who Do You Like, baseball fans?

In Sports on April 2, 2006 at 9:20 pm


Tomorrow is Opening Day in Major League Baseball.  I am a Florida Marlins fan, and know that my team will not do well this year.  In a payroll cutting move, the Marlins let go of most of their roster from 2005 (where they finished 3rd in the NL East with an 83-79 record) and now have 11 rookies on their roster for '06.  I predict a 65-97 season this year, but if they win 70 I'll be ecstatic.  I enjoy watching the passion and the talent of Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera.  And watch out for Hanley Ramirez at shortstop and Jeremy Hermida in right.  They will be some good young stars coming up.

Do you like Major League Baseball?  Who's your team?  Do you have some good memories attached to baseball (like going to a game, your team winning the World Series, a particular baseball hero)?  Do you have some bad memories (like the strike, steroids, etc.)? 

Let's talk baseball!
