    Opening day. Finally. After all the talking and arguing this off-season we can finally see it play out. Hope the weather cooperates, I want to see some baseball.

    I normally take opening day off but we're way too busy getting stuff out before the end of the month. Bad timing.
    I might get a sore throat before the home opener arrives. Good timing.
    My neighbor thinks I'm following or even stalking her, she is worried that I may be obsessed with her and any time she hears a noise in her house she is...purified? Oh, wait: petrified. Sorry, it's not easy reading a diary through binoculars from a tree.

    Managed to get a late lunch hour today so I'll be dining at a local pub, hopefully can catch two or three innings before duty calls! So you Morons are on your own for a while (Yooper Free Zone).

    Had the cable guy in Tuesday, to set up a second cable box and Tivo in the basement so I don't have to argue with my roommate the Braves fan and my other roommates the Nerds (non-baseball fans) about what we watch.

    It's going to be a nice summer.

    I'm having the same issue. I teach, and have a class at 1:50. I don't think I will be able to stay away once I've started, but I hope to.

    I've been watching my DirecTV EI channels each day, and the appropriate channels haven't shown up. Finally the light bulb lit up over my head, and I realized I had to reset my favorite channels. I go through this every year so you'd think I would get it.

    Here's hoping Verlander shuts them out, and I won't have to cringe every time the Peralta, Inge, Avila group is scheduled to come up. Opening day is sweet, and I hope not bittersweet.

    No television at the shop? Too distracting? As long as you didn't charge me by the hour I'd gladly watch the Tigers while getting work done!

    MLB Network has their show called MLB Tonight: Batting Practice on right now (very cool show btw). Just showed the "Ballpark Cam" from Yankee Stadium and the players are out on the field warming up. Looks like the tarp is on the field, but it's early...


    Edit: They just showed another shot and the tarp is off and the grounds crew is raking the field!!!!

    Leyland: Don’t try to factor in weather
    Posted on March 31, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Leyland: Don’t try to factor in weather Beck's Blog

    The conditions at Yankee Stadium are really cold today. Temperatures might have crept under 40. It’s damp and it’s windy. Sounds like perfect conditions for two hard-throwing starting pitchers who can jam hitters inside, right?

    Well, yeah. But that doesn’t mean it’ll necessarily be a low-scoring game, the way Jim Leyland looks at it.

    “I found out a long time ago not to try to figure this thing out, because it just doesn’t work,” Leyland said. “Normally, you go into a game like today and you figure with the cold weather, maybe the pitchers have the advantage. You have two outstanding pitchers going. But I learned a long time ago, maybe an infielder gets a wet ball and throws one away, an outfielder slips with a couple runners on because of the wet grass or something. So I’ve never tried to figure it. It is what it is.”

    Valid points, Jim.

    Tigers 2, Yankees 1. We score 2 in the 8th on a Boesch PH HR. Granders hits one in the 3rd for the other guys' only run.

    I think Cabrera is going to jack one today.

    I think Verlander is going to have the following line: 7 IP, 6 H, 1 BB, 8 K, 2 ER.

    Damn, just ordered pizza and wings and it's gonna take over an hour. I have this thing where I have to have hot food in front of me for the first pitch. May have to pause the start and FF through commercials to catch up.

    On ESPN they said that in New York they will not start a game if there is any rain. Even a drizzle will stop it. Hopefully the rain stops.

    Hot dogs are cooking. Last cup of coffee in front of me. Five Oberons (couldn't wait last night) in the fridge, along with some Daisy Cutter pale and The Poet oatmeal stout.

    Watching ESPN-HD five minutes ago and they cut back in error to the hosts talking "off-camera" then back to the commercial they should have been showing. I used to love the old gigantic sat dishes for those kinds of feeds all the time.
