Opening Day 2012

Happy Opening Day, everyone! To baseball fans, it’s almost like Christmas. The fantasy teams have been drafted, and the stadiums will soon be open for business. Every team has an equal chance of winning it all. The best part is, is that the games count now.

I hope that we have a baseball season with limited controversy, and that we can all enjoy a great season of baseball. The season hadn’t even started before we got our first bit of controversy, but hopefully it won’t be a sign of things to come.

I have already posted my predictions for the season, so I will not get into that, but I am looking forward to seeing how the season progresses for some teams. One team, in particular, is the Royals. The whipping boy of the American League since the departure of George Brett, the Royals were actually buyers this offseason signing guys like Jonathan Broxton and shoring up some of their prospects for long term deals. They aren’t that far away from turning a corner. The Pirates on the other hand…

Of course, this season will be bittersweet for me because it’ll be Chipper’s last season, but I’m hoping the Braves will step it up for him and get him to the playoffs, and beyond, one last time. He certainly deserves it.
