The 2019 season begins and it appears there is nothing we can do to stop it.

Uber offense could make a statement vs Kluber

I for one will not mind seeing Cron not draw that key walk and actually try to drive runs in.

I have fairly low expectations from this team so I would think they may surprise me. This team needs to hit vs. the better starting pitchers of ML baseball.

Is Matt still upset about the departure of Robbie Grossman?

Going to be a weird Mauer-less vibe in those situations.
I likey.

It's a little disappointing.

Seems like almost a year since I walked down to the local watering hole for Opening Day
GREAT time of year.
The air is full of hope.
Tomorrow? Not so much. But today? We are undefeated, baby.

The farther we go into the season without him calling for a sac bunt, the better I will feel about him.

Joe Mauer may be gone, but today is Day 1 of the season long
Joe Mauer ass kissing festival at Target Field.

Old Ladies will cry.
Cyber nerds will cry.


Him being gone makes for as much seasonal optimism as when Punto and Gardenhire left.



Watch the team have fun and win again.

Guaranteed

Yanks jump out on the O's early 3-0
Mets up on Scherzer and the Nats ... a Cano HR makes it 1-0

Just because Brian Dozier left a hole in your heart doesn't mean that Jonathan Schoop will leave a hole in our lineup all year. HE'S MY PICK TO CLICK.

Johnathon Schoop, aka The Dozier Upgrade.

What a gorgeous day to play hooky and go to the ballpark

Never would have predicted Max Kepler as the leadoff hitter for 2019's opener, when 2018 came to a close.

Won't get fooled again. The Who

I'm usually a no-rules kinda guy ... but Kepler at lead-off makes zero sense to me.
Not something I would have even considered.
Willing to see how it works, tho ... but scratching my head on this one.

The fact that it is something neither of Rocco's predecessors never would have thought of gives me some hope that it will succeed. Kind of the George Costanza do the opposite effect. If Gardy and Molly never would have done it then give it a try.

Undaunted by 2018's failure, Byron Buxton again pitching Sheboygan Sausages.

No mention of a contest to hang out w/him in September.

Yet.
