Hi all,

As close season I thought I could post this as slightly off topic. I like Irish folk rock/punk music and there's great stuff from all over the World. I like a band called the Dropkick Murphys from Boston.

I only just heard this one though and thought I'd dedicate it to the Red Sox crew. It's not their greatest song but hope you enjoy....

Well, that made me smile on a cold Saturday morning.

You're right, not their best, but I'm not sure they've ever had a 'best'.

Our old closer, Jonathan Papelbon used to come out of the bullpen to 'I'm shipping up to Boston' by the same band. Also not a 'great' song, but they're a good band for a sing shout a long after a few beers.

Hello all!

Spring training is now well underway, and the opening games are not that far away.

Just thought I post this news in case no-one had heard. Manny Machado is off to the Padres for a record sum. Seems the Yankees didn't want him.

Roll on the end of March!

Hi guys,

Not long now. Haven't really been looking at the pre season but looks like Bruce Bochy, MLB's longest serving manager, will retire after this season so let's hope the Giants can do him proud.

Also, we've got Yangervis Solarte, ex Yankees and Padres, who apparently did well at both. Not so well last season at the Blue Jays but the Giants website seems to rate him as a good addition the team.

Looking forward to my baseball fix and chats with y'all.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Ladies and Gentlemen...

Dust off your caps, dig out your team colours, ready the war-cries and all please rise for the singing of the national anthem.

Opening day tomorrow!!!

 :claphappy:    :claphappy:    :claphappy:    :claphappy:    :claphappy:

Hears hoping we all have an enjoyable season of reparte and riposte!

So swing for the fences and we'll see what happens.

Was seriously about to post as hadn't heard from y'all but had a few glue problems which is another story (railway wise by the way)

Anyway, you beat me to it.

 :claphappy: It's back! Think they're all nice times UK wise later today.

Looking forward to the chats and GOOD LUCK everybody.

Hi emjaybee,

Sorry, misread your start time. Thought it said 20.08 (UK), not 23.08.

Anyway, my lot are off and running in 20 mins or so at the Padres. Nice not to start in LA as usual.

PLAY BALL!

Tough call on 2nd base there @weave !!!

Good to see the first game is already proving a little contentious.

Watching the local TV news at home tonight and Phillies fans are acting like they are already in the World Series! This is based on one win over Atlanta and the signing of Bryce Harper... We shall see!!!

Meanwhile a nice Yankees opening day win against Baltimore :claphappy:

But Robinson Cano playing for the Mets is going to take some gettingusked to  :confused2:

Enjoy the season every :bounce: one

Looks like the Dodgers were paying attention to the title of this thread. That's some opening day home run derby all of their own!

Yup, looks like they were having some batting practice!

Early days, but it's great to have the season underway again.  RedSox have started in their usual style!

Our first WIN!!!  :claphappy:

I know it's early days on a long road but I was getting a bit concerned there. Also, Longoria, who went off injured, will just be rested today and back on Monday as he's one of our main men.

Still haven't had my first regular season hot dog yet. I did buy some but the good wife thought that they were for the dogs as a treat, we have four, so they all got munched  :doh:. They were for my midnight snacks  :(  :'(

Hope you all enjoy today's games. Am feeling much more up beat.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Congratulations! Your Giants are as capable as the current World Series Champions!

 :smackedface:

We've started off in typically capable mode. Hopefully it'll improve as they settle in, to be honest I'd have been more surprised if they'd been at the top of the league after the first match up.

I can't believe your missus fed your game 'dogs to your 'actual' dogs, I bet they thought it was Christmas!

I'm still waiting for 9kg of spicy bar mix to arrive for my game snacks. We've also stocked up on coffee in case there's an issue caused by B**x*t. Gotta be prepared for all eventualities.

We're still waiting for Pedroia to get game fit, so Longoria is only a blip!
