Opening Day is less than 3 weeks away! Anybody else getting fired up???

I was pretty excited about the Brew Crew for this year, then Greinke had to go and get himself onto the DL playing in a pick-up basketball game............

Red Sox are looking good this year...too bad I'm a Rockies fan in MA.

Bernie Brewer, I think Marcum will be huge for you guys this year (barring injury)

I am cautiously optimistic about this. Some days I see a lot of hope, other days I feel we are in for a huge let down. I consider myself a betting kind of guy and I wouldn't put a dime either way on the Rangers this year.

On the other hand, I am absolutely certain that the Astros will take the AAA crown this year.

That's how I felt last year, but I'm feeling pretty good about this season. As die-hard Ranger fan, I've spent many years getting my hopes up only to be let down so I know to be cautious. But if we can get our starting rotation set, I think we are going to have another great season!

As long as Mike Maddux is the pitching coach, the Rangers will do well. Gawd, I wish he was still with the Brewers..............

I fell like it's going to take a few weeks for me to get excited about baseball this year. I watched one Yankees preseason game and just didn't care. I'll come around eventually.

I knew mentioning the Yankees would make this the "obnoxious" baseball thread!

I'm not sure the Astros could take the AA crown.
