Baseball... The 2017 Season begins!!!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Baseball... The 2017 Season begins!!!

Postby Calma » Wed Mar 04, 2015 1:15 pm

First Spring Training game of the season!
My M's against the Padres.

Oh, it feels soooo good to hear baseball again.

The so called experts say my M's have a shot at the division.
I like to hear that, but I'll take the safe route and take a wait and see.


Go M's!!!
It feels sooooo good.

Watched my M's take on Cleveland last night.
Tywan Walker looks like he had that fifth spot.
Gads, that dude is as cool as the other side of the pillow.
Dustin Ackley is looking good, too.
At last they haven't been messing with his head by putting him in a new spot.
He learned to play left last year and after he finally got it down,
He started to hit.
This year, he's not worried as to where he's going to play,
So he's hitting.

Go M's! :D
I like our chances.
Stay healthy and knock them all for a loops=!

My Mariners lost a promising young pitcher.
He would have been good.
But the sad thing is that he was only 20.
Too young to leave this world.

Anyone want a slightly used closer?

Fernado Rodney has blown back to back games for us.
One was a four run lead and one a one run lead.
So, if you want to get ulcers each time he walks out of the pen....
Have I got a deal for you....

Go M's! :D
If this is winning the West
I'd hate to see what losing is.

I think they just didn't re-sign him, t0bY.
Oh well, he's got one year left on the contract with us
And we have a youngster, Carson Smith, who can fill his shoes when he's gone.

Hey, Dunthule, how's it going?
Yep, your Cubs are not bad this year.
Let me know how you like the improved Wriggly.

My M's lost today.
We scored nine runs last night and won the game.
I kept saying 'save some for tomorrow'.
They didn't listen.
We darn near had a perfecto thrown against ue.
Ended up a two hit shut out.

We play Houston tomorrow.
Let's hope they continue on their losing ways.

Go M's! :D
I'm still with you...

Last night the Astros ran King Felix right out of the first inning.
He gave up eight runs with only one out before he was taken out of the game.
We ended up losing 10-0. :Q
it was King Felix's worst game ever.

Today our guys ran their pitcher out of the game by the third inning.
We scored eight runs before he was taken out and won the game 8-1.
Gave Mike Montgomery his first big league win and got a bit of our own back. :D

Go M's! :D
See if you can take Houston down again.

I hope this break gives all my M's time to rest and think.
Think about what they could be and should be.
And to rest up so they can be what they were projected to be.
We have the talent, but for some reason, it's not coming to the top.

The Astros threw all of us a curve ball.
Man, they came out like someone set fire to the clubhouse.
But since they lost George Springer
They've slowed down a lot.
I hope they continue to slow down.

I saw sparks of greatness from my M's.
Then they'd slide down that slippery slope of "Oh my Goodness there they go again."
We barely managed to beat the A's to stay out of last place.
No, we have to find the key somehow.
I don't want to put it all on Edgar,
But since they made him hitting coach
Well, Ackley is hitting, Zunino is hitting, and Miller is hitting.
Yeah, the back end of our line up is actually putting wood on the ball.

I would like to win the West.
But I'll take a wildcard berth.

Go M's! :D
Time to start the engines, boys.
