    Commissioner Bug Selig welcomed McGwire's admission and claimed steroids have been almost wiped out of the big leagues.

    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Yanks and Red Sox = 2 pretty big excuses

    Not to mention the Rays, all in the same division.

    Methinks not.

    I've always thought (and still do think) that people are getting too carried away and expecting too much of this young lad, but I have to admit now that even I'm a bit excited.

    Just minutes away from the season opener. Exciting stuff.

    Some random predictions:

    Not a particularly good Mets season - I like our lineup, but I'm concerned about the pitching (apart from Santana and K-Rod). Some of those other starters really need to step up and have a breakthrough season. Oh, and Wright, Reyes and Beltran need to be fit.

    There'll be too many Red Sox-Yankees games on NZ TV - It's an amazing rivalry, but come on. I don't want to see the same two teams playing each other every week. There are some really exciting teams in the league this year - the Dodgers, Rockies, Rays and Giants are teams I'm interested in seeing, to name just a few - so please, give us some variety.

    The Mariners will be pretty good - I like the moves they made in the off-season. Cliff Lee is the big name, and obviously he'll add a lot to their rotation. I also like the fact that Griffey's back in Seattle. Milton Bradley is the question mark - he seems to help some teams and hinder many others. I hope he's productive with the Mariners.

    Strasburg will pitch well in his first MLB start - I've been officially sucked in by the hype, and I'm on the bandwagon. The Nationals will still suck, though, and that's why I've fallen short of claiming he'll win his first start. To do that, your team has to score some runs.

    A backward step by the Twins
    - It's great that they've signed Mauer for essentially the rest of his career, but the dome had been such a wonderful home ground for them, and I wonder if they might struggle to adjust to the new park and establish that same stranglehold over opposing teams there.

    Pirates will be poo - Again. They're quite endearingly bad - they might now be my second favourite team. I'd love to see them do well, but they won't.

    That's about all I've got for now. Anyone have anything to add?

    The Braves might have found a bit of a superstar. Jason Heyward had a huge reputation coming into this season, and yesterday he hit a 3-run HR in his first ever major league at-bat!

    I was a bit excited when the Mets won their first game. Now we're 1-2. Business as usual.

    I saw that game - I was confused by the time it was 0-0 in the 11th, but going to 20 innings, Jesus H. Christ.

    They were even holding up the footy until the baseball finished, because they thought it just couldn't go on that long.

    And the poor bloke who had ten bucks on over 8.5 runs, well, if you can't get them in 20 innings, you're just not punting right.
