Tribe lost to Reds Yesterday

I had no idea the season starts Thursday (for the Sox at least) and furthermore, with a first four series that goes like this:

Rays

Marlins

Rays (Boston)

Yankees (Boston)

I'm situated to see the first 12 games of the season on Sunshine, ESPN or MLB Network.  Never had that happen but I guess it gives me more time to decide on whether I invest in the Extra Innings package for the first time or not.  I assume the cost is still around $160 for the year.  And now I realize that since I'm once again hard-wired into the internet with no data caps (Go to hell, Exede!)  and the quickest speeds I've ever enjoyed, I guess MLB.TV is another option too.

Season also starts on Thursday for Mets.  They had a horrible spring but the pitching looked good so I guess we’ll see.

I know it's spring for the Yankees when Greg Bird is scratched from the lineup due to issues with his foot.  (As somebody commented on a Yankee forum this weekend, "Bird's turning into Nick Johnson 2.0.")

If any MLB fans here are T-Mobile customers, be sure to take advantage of the offer they're putting up tomorrow (as they did last year around this time)--free MLB.TV for the year if you download their T-Mobile Tuesdays app:

T-Mobile offering free year of MLB.TV

I had switched over to T-Mobile in February of last year for completely unrelated reasons, so this was a very welcome surprise at the beginning of the 2017 season.  Happy that they're doing it again this year (probably because they have a commercial relationship with MLB).

Bird is having surgery tomorrow.  Expected to miss 6 to 8 weeks.

So Bird lives after all, right?

Yeah, but not doing so good on the health front, obviously. 

So perhaps you’re only half right.

Just don't let him anywhere near a TV when the Dorsey show is on, ok?

They should move Sanchez to first base - a least part time. He couldn't be any worse defensively there than he is behind the plate. Plus Romine would give them better catching, both defensively and handling pitchers.

He probably should be sent down but they might not be able to do that until he struggles when it counts.

He was a great ambassador to the sport and a great player for the teams he played on. RIP.

Six All Star selections ain't bad, that's for sure.  If Tony Perez labored with last-place teams and Staub played for the Big Red Machine, I think he makes it to the Hall just as Perez did.
