Very cool to get to open against the Nats.. The two franchises are at different stages but both up and coming.

I hope they rock Strasburg.

I think the only fans who don't have anything to be excited about are Astros fans. Is there anyone on that team who has a chance at becoming a star player in the next few years?

I'll be there, pretty excited for the season to get started.

Any idea on the Nats lineup? Something like this maybe:

1) Ian Desmond - SS
2) Danny Espinosa - 2B
3) Ryan Zimmerman - 3B
4) Adam LaRoche - 11B
5) Jayson Werth - RF
6) Mark DeRosa - LF
7) Wilson Ramos - C
8) Roger Bernadina - CF
9) Stephen Strasburg - P

Not as tough as I thought, though with Strasburg going it may not matter. Michael Morse and Rick Ankiel begin the season on the DL and will not be eligible to play until the Nats home opener at the earliest, so DeRosa and Bernadina should get the starts I'd assume.

I was so down on Cubs/baseball last year, I honestly don't think I watched a single game start to finish (buy still checked the box scores everyday o. MLB At Bat app)... But I'm quite excited for baseball again and ready to watch the Cubs no matter how terrible they may or may not be.

I'm off Thursday and I plan on getting wasted while watching this team. Probably the best way to enjoy them.

cosart has really good stuff but is a very long shot to reach his ceiling because his results have been mediocre and his command is pretty lousy. george springer has star-type tools but has a lot of work to do. singleton is also a guy with a high ceiling, but the results haven't matched the tools. they also have the #1 overall pick, which should yield a guy with star-level ability.

and they fired ed wade, which is reason enough for excitement.

LaHair may be out for Opening Day with his back still bothering him.

I ... I don't know how I feel about that.

Hurray for WGN showing up on Time Warner cable just as it disappears from directv. I'll be able to watch from work at least.
