That Ryan Howard contract will slowly murder Philly over time. I can't remember a single reasonable person (excludes anyone who used RBIs as an argument) that thought it was anything but awful when Philly gave it to him.

We might be saying the same things about the Angels, Reds and Tigers in a few years.

Every year that Kentucky has won the National Championship in men's basketball, the New York Yankees have won the World Series in the same year ('48, '49, '51, '58, '78, '96, '98). Time for that trend to break this year!

and to think, all this was started by J.P. Ricciadi by signing BJ Ryan and AJ Burnett to those ridiculous 5 year deals back then. Funny how everyone said we overpaid Burnett (and we did), but he opted out after year 3 to get even more money...

No official update yet, but its looking more and more like Bailey is going to miss a bunch of the season. Do they go with Melancon or Aceves?

Edit: Bailey is getting surgery tomorrow, takes about 3 months to recover from but there is no official time table for his return yet.

First game at the Marlins new place is about to start. Pretty excited to see what the season brings, especially if they keep things as flamboyant as they have been the past 15 minutes

Man its been a while since i've seen Ali make a public appearance. Things aren't looking too good

Yep definitely a rough start. Seems like the fielders aren't really used to how the ball plays on the field too. Hopefully they pick up the pace cause Ozzie already looks flustered

P.S. This ESPN commentary blows.

The Marlins have this once every 10-15 years type power hitter on their roster and they open up a new stadium that's 416 to center and 390ish to the power alleys. Terrible timing on their part, and I know it wasn't something they could avoid.

Already not liking Francona. His voice just doesn't "fit" if that makes sense.

The ballpark is definitely a pitchers park, bigger everywhere than Sun Life except for down the right field line. It probably will affect some balls that otherwise would have been HRs, but Stanton was 2nd in the league last year in "no doubters" (Bautista first) so I think it will be a very small difference.

Here is an article that goes over it: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/ind...tons-new-home/

The team looks like hot garbage right now. Getting no hit so far, a couple bad plays on the defensive end, JJ pitching like shit. Not the debut they were hoping for.

Defense has actually stepped up and looked good the past few innings, saved a couple more runs. Guys are making solid contact, but hitting them right at people.

Marlins gifted their first run from Infante being called safe, followed by Buck's double
