    So these were my predictions on opening day last year, according to my twitter feed. Bolded are the ones I actually got right:

    AL East: Blue Jays(Jesus-fucking-Christ....)
    AL Central: Tigers
    AL West: Angels
    Wildcards: Yankees, Rangers

    NL East: Nationals
    NL Central: Reds
    NL West: Dodgers
    Wildcards: Cardinals, Giants

    As you can see, I don't have this down to an exact science(although both the Reds and the Cardinals made the postseason, just not how I thought they would have). Regardless.....

    AL East: Rays
    AL Central: Tigers
    AL West: Angels
    Wildcards: Red Sox, Rangers

    NL East: Nationals
    NL Central: Cardinals
    NL West: Dodgers
    Wildcards: Pirates, Giants

    I will remain ferociously skeptical for the Jays until the All-Star break. I've never seen a DL so stacked with talent like last year. Really helped to achieve a shit season, along with failed pitching.

    Of course, they say everyone's ready to go But I'll believe it with my eyes first, thanks.

    I just don't see the Blue Jays being competitive. They essentially didn't make any moves in the offseason in the hopes that their current roster will stay healthy. They're right, to some extent, the Jays will be better than last season. But they were 23 games behind when the last season ended. You can't make up that kind of ground without reloading at least a little. They'll be better than last year, but not enough for a wild card spot.

    Jeter is pretty much the one thing all Yankee-haters agree on. I know plenty of people in Boston, and while they all hate the Yankees, they all(at a minimum) respect Jeter. It used to be that anytime someone(mainly ARod) on the Yankees did something stupid Boston fans would say "You never see Jeter doing that bullshit!" or something to that effect.

    It puzzles me why so many people hate him. He's never done anything to bother me except stealing Minka Kelly from me.

    A-Rod deserves scorn because he is a fucking asshole and that's not open for debate. But Jeets gets a fair share of scorn too and it's just not deserved. Yes, the Yankees are evil and their fans are the biggest fuckheads in MLB but until they come up for a reason to hate the guy they're just blathering out their ass.

    If you want to see Jays fans at their absolute worst, go when the Yankees are in town. They are fucking demonic, they boo Jeter for everything, three years ago I watched as they surrounded and were rocking a Yankees' booster club bus with the fans inside. And the Jays won that game. It's a crazy circus, but a shameful one at times.

    The Angels won't win the West. The A's will.



    Fucking shit piss fucking hell. Goddammit. The Rangers are a barely 3d place team and God help them if the Mariners decide to play baseball. Next year the Astros will be creeping.

    Would it KILL the fucking Rangers to be fucking healthy?

    Goddammit.

    All your hopes and dreams don't matter. Chicago Cubs are winning the World Series in 2014. You heard it here first.

    Tanaka and Pineda are going to be very entertaining to watch this season, especially with our infield consisting of statues.

    Heh.

    Fucking Hamilton. SUCH a waste that so much natural god given talent was bestowed on that complete nincompoop. Being an angels fan must be rough right now.

    It may be tough to be an Angels fan, but as an A's fan I am eating up the problems that the Angels going through.

    Nice sweep by Oakland of the Twins and as our reward we get to face Hernandez tonight in Seattle. That man just owns the A's so it is going to take some particularly good beer to tolerate tonight's game.

    So nice to be back in baseball season. I figure in another month or so I can really start teasing Shimmered about the Rangers.

    Jesus, Melky gets a tumour removed from his spine and he's hitting dingers left and right. He only has a two foot reach with that swing.

    So far our injury report consists of Jeter, Tex, Robertson. Cervelli, and Roberts. And the season isn't two weeks old yet. God. Damnit.

    And watching Braun hit 3 HRs in one game a few days ago put a huge smile on my face. The fact that it was against the Phillies made it even better.

    How about you wait til we have something resembling a starting rotation? When our pitchers are pitching, and we actually HAVE pitchers...I'll take my lumps. Right now it just isn't fair to pick on me. My nails are nubs.

    And fuck the Angels.
