Reds finally get their first win of the year today and they do it in dramatic fashion too! It was a big pitcher's duel between Arroyo and Penny (Bronson went 8 innings and Penny went 7 innings and each of them only gave up one run) and finally, in the bottom of the ninth, Jonny Gomes hit a walk off HR to win it for the Reds! WOOT!!! :D I'm glad the guys didn't get swept by the Cards and now it's time to kick some Cubbie behind this weekend! GO REDS!!! :cheer:

Marlins come home v the Dodgers after opening 2-1 against the Mets. Evidently they played some really bad ball in NY, but the Mets were a run or 2 worse. Over 33,000 are expected tonight. I wish we could average that for the season, but I know better...:(

NJL (...and, the Miami Football Club "Blues" open their season on Saturday v the Rochester Rhinos in Div 2 NASL play @ Lockhart Stadium in Ft Lauderdale...Since tickets only cost $12.00 & they have free parking I'll be attending that game...:)...I hope that the Blues can get 33,000 fans total to attend for the season this year...;)....)

Jays fan checking in and hey! they won their series against Texas. WOW and came close to sweeping it. Nice start but the finish ... well, we are rebuilding and this year, without Doc. Could be interesting but I'm thinking it might me more like a train wreck.

I love Arroyo. :) However, Penney pisses me off, he sucked on the Sox, but as soon as he's traded he's awesome. I saw the recap of that game this morning and it looked like a good one. :)

Reds win again!! They beat the Cubbies 5-4 tonight but nearly gave their entire fanbase heart failure by having one of THE most stressful ninth innings ever. I'm glad they got the win (eventually!) but GEESH guys. Can you make tomorrow's game just a little less stressful!? It took about fifteen minutes for my heart rate to come back down after that last inning, LOL :lol: :yikes:

Go Tigers! I miss my Granderson badly, but the team is off to a good start. Very pleased with the pitching so far.

Me too. We'll be seeing Verlander in person tomorrow. Last time I looked the weather said rain at game time. :(

I didn't realize that Bonderman's injuries were as extensive as they were. I was listening to the radio broadcast today and they said it was a blood clot where they had to remove some rib and rearrange muscle :eek:

I am rusty- totally forgot to check the Phillies score while at SOI! (which I can easily do on my phone) Glad the Phillies aren't as rusty as I am. :lol:

Don't sweat the small stuff...;)

The Phillies are picked to run away with the NL East & go deep into the playoffs, if not all the way to another championship ring. They certainly have the players to do it. They'll not shock me if they do do it.

My beloved Marlins showed their achilles heel again last night: the bullpen blew a lead in the 8th. Fortunately, the Dodger bullpen blew the game in the 9th, so life was good for us in the end. However, we'll not always be fortunate to be the comeback kids. The BP has got to have at least a couple guys that can close the door on the opposition once a late lead is achieved. If not, we'll "enjoy" watching an arch-rival win it all again.

Have a great time! Hopefully Verlander will be better than his first outing. The rain is supposed to end by this morning, so you should have good weather. My first tickets aren't until June, but I will be there in spirit!

I am so happy that Bonderman's first outing was so good. After all he has been through, this should be a nice confidence booster for him.

Reds starter Mike Leake becomes the 21st player to skip the minors entirely and make his big league debut today. So far he's thrown 3 innings giving up no runs (and it hasn't been easy, LOL :P) and now he just got his first big league hit in the last inning! Hope the Reds can get some offense going for him soon. GO Reds!!! :cheer:

The weather cleared as we were waiting to get into the park. Verlander was ok after the first inning, but that first one was pretty awful. What an ending, though. I feel bad for the Cleveland pitcher.

(Cleveland was leading 8-6 going into the 9th. One run already scored, bases loaded and their pitcher walked in the tie run. Then a passed ball led to the winning run being scored.)

I could not believe the hole that was dug after the first inning! I hate being at games like that. Thank goodness Verlander was better after. I still can not believe the Tigers won that game. I went outside to do some gardening after the eighth inning. I was (happily) stunned that we ended up winning! We need every W we can get this year, no matter how we get them.

Glad you ended up with good weather. :)
