    Dodgers still having trouble vs lefties, but are a juggernaut vs righties

    40 year old Bronson Arroyo is back pitching with the Reds and after his 1st start today he has a solid 13.50 ERA. :eek:

    I couldn't believe the Reds' opening day starter was Scott Feldman, who was shut down from his "mop-up duty" relief role with the Blue Jays late last season because he was so horrible.

    Home opener at Wrigley on Monday vs. the Dodgers. The two best teams in the NL (IMO) and the championship banners being raised.

    Going to call in sick to work Monday and Tuesday so I can really enjoy the festivities. Hopefully the weather cooperates.

    Kershaw is avoiding us though after we handed it to him in game 6 of the NLCS. ;)

    I'll be making an appearance (or two) at Wrigley this season. (Traveling to Chicago for a work conference.) Can't wait! Last time I was there was 1998.

    heading to wrigley on 17th and 18th. nothing like a nice early spring game.

    on another note, only 12867 people are ahead of me for season tickets. almost 15 years on the list, not sure it's even moved.

    Do you know which series? Lots of changes since 98, especially around the ballpark.

    Yeah gotta catch a game at Wrigley. Still happy for the Cubs!

    Far too long without a championship for such a storied franchise.

    If Nats don't go deep into the playofffs bye bye Dusty and Bryce!

    Banner ceremony with LA in town. Coincidence? I think not.

    I hope it comes down to these 2 teams again.

    No avoiding, just sticking with regular rotation. Cute that you guys shuffled yours so we face lefties. Good call, but I hope it backfires

    You know I was joking about Kershaw. I'm thrilled not to face him this series. I was at NLCS game 6 - probably the best game I've ever been to, including the WS games.

    I suppose I may have mentioned that before but I thought everything from the old board disappeared into the ether.
