***Official MLB 2013 Season Thread (1 Viewer)

So, Reds fans should refrain from booing Pujols until they've proven themselves to be gentlemen to Peyton Marino? At which point they may have their booing privileges reinstated? I'm really confused here.
I made my comment based on the Reds fans that I have had the (dis)pleasure of dealing with. Everyone else has ran away with it and had a fapfest with said comment. Boo all you want, I don't care.
How many Reds fans do you know?
A dozen at minimum, through either work or through online activities. Admittedly it may be small sample size. But, before the Reds sudden surge of success, I barely heard a peep from the limited Reds fans I knew at the time. Suddenly, the Reds fans I know have become cocky, arrogant, and downright malicious.

I should have elaborated before I said the original comment. I didn't, and because of that, some internet posters got their rocks off at my expense.
So how many of that dozen includes people you "know" online here?
Zero. Didn't include you in my commenting because, at my error, I didn't associate you as being a Reds fan. That was my mistake, as I have no quarrel with you at all.
Oh, I wasn't accusing you of doing so. Just curious why type of attitude is contributing to this perception of yours. I of course know A LOT of Reds fans. Apathetic sure (unfortunately), but classless and cocky would not be near the top of adjectives.
And apathetic would be how I would have described most Reds fans I encountered before their recent success.

Like I said, probably small sample size. Every fanbase has their share of tools and knobs. Just seems I encountered a lot of bad apples online and in real life. :shrug:

 
Now I'm hearing that Oscar Taveras is a Once In A Generation player. Jesus, how many more do we need?

 
This seems like good news for the Yankees, unless Cano jumps to the Brooklyn Nets

In Jay-Z's hit "Run This Town,' the rapper turned mogul proclaims "This is Roc Nation, pledge your allegiance." Now plenty of pro athletes will be doing just that.

The entertainment company Roc Nation announced Tuesday that they will launch Roc Nation Sports, a full-service sports management company led by Jay-Z (aka Shawn Carter) and partnering with Creative Artists Agency. The group also announced the signing of the group's first big client, New York Yankees All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano.

"Because of my love of sports, it was a natural progression to form a company where we can help top athletes in various sports the same way we have been helping artists in the music industry for years," said Carter in a statement.

The formation of the agency creates an array of branding opportunities for Roc Nation athletes, who could take advanage of the global cache in the entertainment world that association with Jay-Z would bring. While the former agent/client partnership between a major rapper and athlete (Master P and Ricky Williams), adding CAA to the fold give Roc Nation and instant credibility that No Limit Sports never had.

"At this point in my career, I am ready to take a more active role in my endeavors both on and off the field," Cano, who is leaving agent Scott Boras to sign with Roc Nation said in a statement.

"I am confident that the pairing of Roc Nation Sports & CAA Sports will be essential in helping me accomplish my short- & long-term goals."

Cano, who is eligible for free agency after the 2013 season, will be represented by Brodie Van Wagenen of CAA. While Boras rarely steers clients nearing free agency toward contract extensions, CAA and Van Wagenen in particular, are far more likely to have their clients sign extensions before hitting the open market. CAA stars who have signed long-term agreements with their clubs include Ryan Braun (signed with the Brewers through 2020), Ryan Zimmerman (Nationals, 2019), Matt Cain (Giants, 2017), Ryan Howard (Phillies, 2016) and Adam Jones (Orioles, 2018).
 
Looks like there is day baseball for a majority of April :thumbup:

No idea why there isn't at least 1 game during the day every day :shrug:

 
Darvish is making it look really, really easy right now. I know: Astros. But still. Hit 96 on the gun at least once, too, in addition to his filthy offspeed stuff.

 
Pretty sure Pagan was safe, but if course the ball beat him there so he HAS to be out. Hate that
:no: He seemed to have gotten the top of his toes. And they call it like that for safety issues. When the ball beats you that much, you are going to be out. Sure, Ellis could block the bag like a catcher and hold his glove down there but then you'll see a lot more injuries.

 
Astros broadcaster: "That'll force the guy to learn some of the language here in America."

:unsure:

Did that really happen? It's all over Twitter.

 
Anyone have a link for a page with all the box scores laid out on one page? USA Today used to have one. Can't find it.

Looks like it. It's at the bottom of the link below. Seems pretty innocent, like suggesting that he'll want a couple of new curse words in his repertoire.

Yeah I was watching the Astros feed and heard it. Seemed totally innocent in context- they showed that post-hit replay of the pitcher that sometimes catches a pitcher cursing, clearly the guy was just trying to crack a joke about it. I didn't even think twice about it.

People blowing that way out of proportion.

 
Kuroda just left in the 2nd inning after trying to barehand a comebacker. Tried to stay in the game but lost most of his control and hit a couple batters, including Nava with the bases loaded.
