White Sox are starting out the season in the usual fashion of alternating yearly between being able to pitch and being able to hit. Hopefully that at least means we'll beat last season's pathetic run support average for Sale.

Also, how coincidental it would be for the Marlins to go on and win the World Series. Yes, I know, it's a very long time away, but still, it'd be quite amazing.

Yanks are doing fine so far. They got the crap beat outta them last night (13-1), but won today (4-3), so I'm happy.

Indeed. Interested in seeing the reaction to Cano's return tonight.

Tigers bullpen has been especially bad thus far. Can't go a season without some sort of bullpen issue.

I don't get it.

BTW, the Tigers are really good in case nobody has noticed. Like really good. I don't even know how this happened. Dave Dombrowski is a wizard seriously.

It's May. The season is a marathon. We'll see where they end up.

In one picture Jack White has personified the feeling of what it is like to be a Cubs fan.

I'm shocked how many of my friends are OK with the Cardinals dealing Oscar Taveras for David Price. I get the logic, but it's a short-term solution for St. Louis; who's to say Price would re-sign?

I could see the trade but yeah I dunno how much that helps in the long run.

All I care about right now is bullpen arms. Ian Krol should be in Toledo, Joe Nathan is too old, and if Al Alberquerque never touched the mound again I'd be very fine with that.

Dude, both the A's and Tigers have absolutely ridiculous rotations now. I'd hate to be on any other team in the AL West or Central.

Speaking of the A's, freaking Cespedes?! Seriously?! Did not see that coming.

Yeah it seems like Billy Beane is pretty sick of losing to the Tigers every postseason. I'm legit afraid of the A's right now. Though yeah giving away Cespedes was really shocking.

Hopefully the Tigers bullpen gets their **** together though. Soria has been looking really rough in his few outings for us and it's troubling. Tigers may have one of the best rotations in baseball but they're not gonna win games if clowns like Al Al, "Joe Nathan" (I'm convinced the real Joe Nathan was abducted by aliens and replaced by a really **** closer) and Ian Krol keep up their bullcrap in the late innings.

Right before work, I jokingly said to my brother "Maybe the Tigers will Get David Price"

The first thing I see on my phone when I get done with work is "David Price to Tigers"

I should be sarcastic more often. Maybe the Lions will go undefeated this year.

Yanks took 3/4 from the Tigers.

...and then dropped 2/3 to the Indians. Ugh. They're playing with my heart and I hate it.
