So hyped to wipe the floor with the Cards this year. Anyone here do fantasy baseball? Trying to find another league for the year, and if enough people are interested, a MS league could be fun

The AL East is going to be so wide open this year it's ridiculous. You could honestly make any prediction with any of those teams in any order, and you wouldn't be any more or less crazy than the other guy going in the opposite order.

I just hope Boston's pitching staff is somewhat not shitty.

Opening day thoughts?

My Rockies kicked some ass today 10-0, so the season should just end today, no need to crush hopes

All talk for Cubs.

Still shitty. And now the shitty of the team has now leaked to Wrigley Field.

Loved Pirates losing. Love Brewers getting blown out.

It's 1 game of a 162 season. You fucking idiots need to calm the fuck down. And when a Red Sox fan is telling you to calm down, you know you fucked up.


That being said I fucking KILLED in Fantasy today.

EDIT: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/116674...lion-extension

"Red Sox sign Porcello to 4-year $82.5 million extension"

"After the game, the Red Sox and RHP Rick Porcello completed an $82.5 million, four-year contract that runs from 2016-19"

What? WHY?! What the hell is wrong with this Red Sox front office? You lowball Jon Lester with a 70 million offer over four years, and then you give Rick Porcello 82.5 MILLION OVER THE SAME TIMESPAN!!! RICK PORCELLO SUCKS. He absolutly fucking sucks!!

Holy crap, it's not enough that they traded Yoenis Cespedes for this bum, but they're giving him essentially the same contract that Cole Hamels has in terms of the yearly salary? What the hell is wrong with this fucking team? Why do they always do this thing where they undervalue their own players when they become free agents and then overpay for everyone else's? AND RICK PORCELLO HASN'T DONE A FUCKING THING!! HE SUCKS!!!!!!!

Let's break down some stuff:

- At the trade deadline in 2014 the Red Sox traded Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes to the Oakland Athletics for Yoenis Cespedes.
- The following offseason, the Red Sox traded Yoenis Cespedes and a minor leaguer for Rick Procello

So they basically traded Jon Lester, Jonny Gomes, and a minor leaguer for Rick Porcello! Just trading Jon Lester straight up for Rick Porcello would be bad, because Lester is a top 15 pitcher while Porcello is barely average!! But THEY FUCKING ESSENTIALLY THREW IN OTHER PIECES!!!!! FOR RICK FUCKING PORCELLO

Now let's talk about Rick Porcello:

- He has a career record of 76-63 with a 4.30 ERA over 6 full seasons from 2009-2014. Wins and losses essentially mean nothing (especially for the Tigers because their bullpen usually fucking sucks), but if you only manage to win 13 more games than you lost over 6 years on a borderline offensive juggernaut during most of those seasons like the Tigers, you fucked up!

- He's had an ERA less than 4 during a season only twice, and one of those times it was 3.96.

- Jon Lester's postseason stats: 2.57 ERA over 84 innings, Opponents Batting average: .216
Rick Porcello's postseason stats: 4.41 ERA over 16 1/3 innings, OBA: .273

And somehow, after you trade a top 15 pitcher and two other pieces (as not important as they may be) for this asshole, YOU GIVE HIM $82.5 MILLION FUCKING DOLLARS! That averages out to $20.25 million a year! Why is this asshole worth so much to this team? HE FUCKING SUCKS! And you lowballed Jon Lester with $70 million over 4 years a year ago in spring training! WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU BEN CHERINGTON, LARRY LUCHINO, TOM WERNER, AND JON HENRY??

Hell, I thought the Sandoval and Ramirez contracts inthe offseason were too much, and a sign of them overvaluing other free agents while undervaluing their own, as I stated before. THOSE CONTRACTS ARE FUCKING BARGAINS COMPARED TO THIS CONTRACT

And I know people will say "Oh but hey man, you're not paying his contract, what do you care?" No, i'm not paying his contract, but that doesn't mean I can't recognize when someone is overpaid and doesn't deserve the money he or she gets. When you walk by a spoiled child who has a $200 allowance every week, you still think that he doesn't deserve it even though you're not paying it.

And people are also going to say "Hey man, the Red Sox have a ton of money, they are one of the teams that can have this contract and it won't make a dent." But just because you can afford something and still not be affected long term doesn't make it a good investment. I can afford one time to go to a store and pay $10 for a pack of gum if I want to. Paying that $10 for the pack of gum won't make a dent in my financial situation. You know why I don't spend $10 on a pack of gum? Because $10 for a pack of gum is an absolute ripoff, and it's not a good investment because it isn't worth that much! And that's exactly what Rick Porcello is: A $10 pack of gum, with no refund policy.

FUCK!! It's 2:11 am on a Monday night/Tuesday morning, I have to get up for work in less than 5 hours and I can't get to sleep because this shit has me fucking stewing! Fuck, I didn't even mention Pedroia's bargain contract yet ($100 million over 8 years. Porcello's contract extrapolated over 8 years would be $165 million) or the fact that the Tigers got rid of him when they were already on the verge of losing Scherzer (after they basically giftwrapped Doug Fister to the Nationals the offseason prior).

Bucket list item: attend a opening day game
