One of My Favorite Days . . .

The New York Yankees play the Pittsburgh Pirates today @ Steinbrenner Field in Tampa.

Not only is this the opening game of spring training--a sign that winter is almost over--but it also marks the beginning of the quest for World Series victory # 28!

Let's go Yankees!!!!

Yanks vs Dodgers this year at Dodger stadium. 2010 World Series preview?
Good luck getting a ticket.

So, is Afraud going to come clean about his steroid use?

Amen! Spring is always nice, but it's especially nice here in west Michigan. We've still got some pretty good snow cover but we've been in the upper 30s all week and it really feels great! Below are the words Ernie Harwell used to use to kick off the baseball season:

For, lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of the singing of the birds is come,
And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

Ernie's voice always brings back some great memories of Tiger baseball. It'll be interesting to see how Curtis Granderson does in pinstripes. :-)

Dude, get over it! No, he's not. None of them will. And as weak as his news conference was last year, he's been more candid than just about any of them. And he finally hit in the playoffs.


Turtles have voices????

Yes, I see Granderson as a huge upgrade over Damon.

Don't forget March madness and of course Lakers in the playoffs. How sweet is that?

Cards have Holliday and now Brad Penny.
It's going to be Cards vs. Yankees in the Series.

Should be a great season.

Check out spring training here in the Phoenix area. Each stadium features the food that is served in the home park of each team.

Next year, the Rockies and Diamondbacks will be moving their spring training from Tucson to the Phoenix area, so 17 teams will be within a forty five min. drive of each other. We have some 250 golf courses in the area too- -for those that are tired of the cold weather.

For some of the gang-banging Dodger fans that come out here to get drunk, use profanity and get into fights, Sheriff Joe has some rooms available in tent city, as they quickly learn. (They soon realize that Sheriff Joe's blue baloney sandwich is not nearly as tasty as a Dodger Dog.)

Pastor Kim and his sons, Mark and David can come out here and wear their guns on their hips, as they sip coffee in one of our local Starbucks,

The Wild West, baby!

Hey Dodger fans:

If Brandon Webb comes back healthy this year, the Diamondbacks will be tough in the N.L. West.

The big question around Phoenix is; why did they put in A.J Hinch as manager, when you have Kirk Gibson (bench coach) and Mark Grace (announcer) in the organization?

I live here in Arizona. I would be more than happy to have Mark Grace as a manager of the Diamondbacks--just GET HIM OFF THE TV set where I don't have to listen to his AWFUL annoucing! Give me Vin Scully anytime. And the same goes for Darren Sutton--the guy is a joke as an announcer.
March 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRichard

I agree with what you said about Vin Scully. He is the best announcer I have ever heard in any sport. It was a thrill gowing up and listening to him.

Regarding Mark Grace; I am a big fan of Tommy Lasorda, and Mr. Grace reminds me of him. Both are good for baseball!

Sutton is way too much of a homer. And, he yells too much. (He must be a pentacostal!)
March 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLloyd I. Cadle
I got turned off Sutton during one game where we got to see re-plays (over and over) of him jumping into the pool at the Diamondback Stadium. During a game, when he SHOULD have been talking about, you know, BASEBALL. Both he and Gracie are jokes. Sutton being a Pentecostal would explain a lot, though. If I hear him yell, "we need some runs!" one more time this season, I will sell my TV set.

They should put our radio guys on T.V. And use the same feed for the radio broadcast's.
