So the Red Sox start the season with a win against the Yankees last night. To quote a Toronto Journo, "As a catcher, Jorge Posada is a fine DH".

Blue Jays get underway today with a tough series in Texas. We've been hitting pretty well coming into the season (especially our 1-2-3 spots) so lets hope we can keep it going. Very nervous for Marcum, making his first big league start since August 2008.

Can't wait for today's match. Not confident with Harang on the mound (I believe he ties a Reds record for consecutive opening day starts too) because he's struggled the last two years. I'm actually more hopeful of the back three of our rotation with Arroyo (our best pitcher), Bailey (fingers crossed on a breakthrough year) and Leake (first round pick from last year going straight into the big leagues without going to the minor leagues first).

Looking forward this year to seeing Strasburg, Heywood and hopefully Champman. Lots of talk about these three, particularly the first two. Strasburg has been described as the best pitching prospect ever and Heywood is a 6'6'' five tool player. As for Chapman, he is the Reds big gamble. A 100mph Cy Young contender if the gamble pays off.

Good start for the Red Sox, i must admit watching the game when they were 5-1 down, i thought it was going to be one of those days. Beckett was poor (glad he has signed a new 4 year deal though), but thankfully the Sox have a good bullpen. Hopefully going to be a good season but as usual the Red Sox have to put you through it.

Bit of a heartbreaker for the Jays yesterday and Shaun Marcum in particular, as they lose in 5-4, giving up 2 in the 9th. I had little confidence in our ability to close a game before the season started, I have even less now. On the plus side was the performance of Marcum, which was outstanding considering the length of time he's been out. Also, very encouraging to see Vernon Wells go 3-4 with 1 HR and 3 RBIs.

Less than a week to the home opener. Can't wait.
