It’s Opening Night!

And what better way to celebrate than with a bikini’d hottie blowing a giant inflatable Dodgers baseball. Right?

This Year in Baseball – Awards and Postseason Predictions

Baseball is about as individual a sport as a team game can be, and so here we’ll pick out our choices on who should be honored with their own hardware. We’ll also be making our picks on who will take home the most important title of them all; World Series Champion. Hope on board after the jump and please leave a comment letting us know everything we’re wrong about. Then, in late September, we’ll get a chance to take a look back and see just how wrong we were, because if there is anything you can count on with the baseball season, it’s that ANYTHING can happen.

This Year in Baseball – NL East

Last year’s World Series champions reside in this tight division, along with the fabulous choke artists formerly known as the Mets, and two highly competitive teams in the Braves and Marlins, all of whom could contend in another division. Alas, only one team can emerge on top. After the jump, let’s separate the chaff from the stalk and see what happens.

This Video is Only About Mowing Your Lawn

Ask any kid about their first memory of a major league stadium and invariably the brilliant green lawn sticks in their mind. Since, Opening Day has come around, I thought this really helpful advertisement regarding mowing your lawn was very helpful and appropriate.

I don’t get what a razor has to do with a lawn but hey, I’m not in advertising…

This Year in Baseball – AL West

Despite being only a 4-team division, the AL West hasn’t been particularly competitive for several years; last year the Rangers finished in second in the division but a robust 21 games out of first. This year, the balance of power swings back to Oakland as the other teams in the division are just not up to snuff. Join us after the jump as our eyes look to the west, and dream.

Edmonton Needs New Entertainment Options

With the nightlife scene stagnant in Edmonton, fans organized a rally pleading for Oilers coach Craig MacTavish’s dismissal. Over 8,800 people belong to the group on Facebook, but when media first showed up for the rally it numbered a mere 10 people. Fans are upset that the team has lost 6 of their last 7, pushing their already precarious playoff hopes further away. MacTavish’s job for now though, is safe, team owner Darly Katz delivered the clearest possible message of confidence; he sent a text message to the Bob Stauffer, the team’s radio analyst to give to MacTavish reading “MacT is not going anywhere.”

I feel warm and tingly.

Sean Avery, Always Full of Class

Sean Avery is back in Gotham and he obviously grew as a person since his suspension and dismissal from the Stars. Case in point, when the Bruins were in town Saturday, Avery went out of his way to express a neighborly congratulations to¬† goalie Tim Thomas on his new contract extension. For some crazy reason, Thomas freaks out and goes nuts and attacks Avery and then it becomes a full-on melee. It’s so nice to see people better themselves, well done Sean.
