    Pretty strange Opening day for the Giants. No Buster Posey. Buster debuted in 2009, but really 2010 was his first full season and he won Rookie of the Year.

    Giants have actually drafted 2 different catchers in the 1st Round as eventual replacements the last few years. Joey Bart (2018 1st round pick) gets the job this season after a solid year at AAA last year. Patrick Bailey (2020 1st round pick) is still in A Ball, possible promotion to AA this season, but still not close to the Majors anytime soon.


    The Giants out performed almost every prediction last year. After 107 wins, it looks like regression is coming. No way they can have all the old guys have career years again. They just got to hope they can cobble together enough wins for a Wild Card spot. Maybe add a player near the trade deadline. The starting pitching is solid. Bullpen also has potential with 23 year old Closer Camilo Doval.

    I want to be excited for opening day. I really do. Then I see the DH in the NL, remember we're starting late because of bullshit, and my enthusiasm is significantly dampened. Maybe I'll feel better after baseball is being played again and the games matter.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    One thing with the new draft pick compensation rules..... Teams are not stashing their top prospects in the minors to manipulate services time as much.

    Several big name prospects made the opening day roster this season.

    https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-top-pro...on-opening-day

    Royals shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. (No. 1 on MLB Pipeline's Top 100 Prospects list), Mariners outfielder Julio RodrŪguez (No. 3) and Tigers first baseman Spencer Torkelson (No. 4) all made Opening Day rosters and are set to make their Major League debuts when their teams begin play on Thursday and Friday. Since MLB.com began ranking prospects in 2004, this is the first time that three top-five prospects have been primed to debut on Opening Day.

    Itís so lame seeing the DH listed there in games between two NL teams. Seriously a dark day.

    And yes I know AL guys donít get the big deal.

    As much as I hate the DH, the Dodgers should benefit from it as much as anyone.

    Watching the Royals v Guardians on MLB.TV, but because of MLB's extremely fucked up blackout policy, I am using a VPN on my phone (mirroring it to my tv) that say's I'm in Canada.

    i wish every game today was postponed - rain, snow, sleet, hail, locusts, frogs - whatever it takes (without folks losing lives). Mother nature staging her own lockout on these jackholes, even if for only a day.

    And I hope all the DHs go oh-fer. One big fat 0 across the league.

    But I'm sure some designated non-fielder has gotten a hit already so that dream's gone to shit.

    Fucking DH...

    You have never been able to Watch "LOCAL Market" games on mlb.tv It is blacked out because they want you to support the local TV/Cable outlet. This isn't new. I thought you were IN OR NEAR KC?? Don't you have "Bally Sport Kansas City" available on your local cable package (or on Hulu, YT if you cut the cable cord)? MLB.tv is just to stream OUT OF MARKET games.

    You did solve the problem with the VPN, but this isn't anything new.

    MLB does have some strange and WIDE blackout regions. Some can get blacked out even 100s of miles from the local market. That is the fucked up part, when you are truely OUT OF MARKET and can't get the mlb.tv stream or the local market feed via local cable.

    No, I have never lived in Missouri. I'm a Royals fan living in Tulsa, originally from Iowa.

    I am part of that strange and wide blackout region that you speak of. Four hours from KC, four hours from Arlington, five plus hours from St. Louis, and eight hours from Houston. Yet those four markets fall under MLB's fucked up blackout policy for Tulsa. The Rangers I get. When we had cable, Fox Southwest was offered around here. They were on there, and I watched a lot of Rangers games. Even went to the old park a few times.

    The Royals and Cardinals are part of Fox Midwest, I believe. I don't ever recall Fox Midwest being offered here on cable.

    Bally's is supposed to start a streaming service for Royals games, but no one can say definitively when that will be.

    I havenít had local Laker or Dodger games in years since I left cable behind happily. Luckily those teams are on mass telecasts often enough to where I can see them. Yes Iíve done the whole VPN thing to watch local games, but honestly itís not worth it to me.
