    Default 2012 MLB thread

    I figured it wouldn't be a bad idea to start a thread for baseball discussion that doesn't fit under the Reds/Cubs/White Sox category.

    - Dodgers with a red hot start this season.

    -Cards don't seem to be missing a beat without Pujols and La Russa....so far, at least

    - So so start for my Yankees. Jeter looks like he's discovered the fountain of youth though. He's been incredible since he hit 3000 in July last year.

    - Funny to see Bobby V already stirring the pot in Boston.

    100th anniversary game at Fenway today between Boston and New York, who played each other when the park opened on April 20, 1912. That was just 5 days after the Titanic sank. Both teams will be wearing 1912 uniforms.

    I don't like the Sox, but I have a lot of respect for the historical significance of that park. It's a gem. As beautiful as the new Yankee Stadium is, I sometimes miss the fact that they no longer play in the classic old stadium.

    Wow, Boston had a 9-0 lead but the Yanks have scored 12 unanswered runs.

    Yeah, that perfect game was something else. I was watching the New York - Boston game when they cut into at the end. Glad I got to see it live. There sure have been a lot of perfect games in recent years: Buehrle in 09, Braden and Halladay in 10, and now Humber this year. Also, that Tigers pitcher would have had one in 2010 if it weren't for that ridiculous blown call.

    Incredible that White Sox fans have seen two perfect games in recent years. That's like the Yankees in the late 90's with Wells and Cone each throwing one.

    Pujols's tenure in LA has started off terribly. No home runs, a .246 average, and just 4 RBI's. I'm sure he'll get it together, but that's definitely one putrid start. Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 11-5 without him.

    Jeter is hitting over .400 so far. Guy has been a machine since he hit 3,000 last year. I think working with his old hitting coach while he was rehabbing last year worked wonders for him. Regardless, the guy is just a machine as he approaches age 38.

    I keep waiting for Jeter to drop off but it doesn't look like he's going to. You have to figure that he's going to have a slight dip. There's no way he can do this for the whole season, right? If he stays healthy, he could have a season for the ages.

    Well it will certainly drop some as his .411 average would be almost impossible to sustain for the season. But he finished the 2011 season with an average of .297 despite it being .257 in early July. So that tells you how fantastic he hit in the second half of last season. It looks like he is picking up right where he left off last year.

    It would be nice to see him make a run for that first MVP that he should have already won in either 1999, 2006, or 2009.

    Its like ever since he got that 3,000th hit, he has been on a tear. I love it. As a kid who was born in 1990, Jeter is like the ultimate Yankee to me.

    Pineda is out the rest of the year. Ouch. Brutal loss for the Yanks. We are really fortunate that Pettitte decided to come back. Hopefully he still has a bit left in the tank.
