Brady Singer is starting the season with the Royals.  That's awesome. I love that feakin dude.  

Came here to post this. Excited to watch him from a prospect standpoint but I have a feeling White Sox fans are going to HATE him in short order. Dude seems like a huge red-ass.

No doubt.  I love a pitcher with an FU attitude.  

I have a feeling Dane Dunning is gonna be a favorite of some on this board when he eventually comes up then.

Dunning always seems like the quiet nerd type to me. 
 

I miss Alec “Pitchface” Hansen.

Love the opening ceremonies everywhere. I would choose and celebrate the song America by Ray Charles which has no equal. Time to clean house, no announcements necessary.

I too love that rendition.  It is an incredibly touching tribute by Ray Charles.

Buffalo Blue Jays. Good move. Glad they didn’t have to play the whole season on the road.

Just hours before their season opener in New York Friday, the Braves announced that both of their veteran catchers were home in Atlanta showing mild symptoms of the virus. The news was first reported by Braves beat writer David O’Brien of The Athletic via Twitter.

Without Travis d’Arnaud and Tyler Flowers, the team promoted Alex Jackson and William Contreras to handle the catching chores until the regulars return. To illustrate the fragility of that situation, Jackson and Contreras combined have played only four major-league games – all by Jackson.

On the other hand, Contreras has good baseball blood-lines as he is the younger brother of Willson Contreras, All-Star catcher for the Chicago Cubs.

The rain-shortened opening game between the New York Yankees and World Series champion Washington Nationals drew an audience of 4 million viewers, according to Nielsen fast nationals. That's the largest audience for an opening night game ever, breaking the previous record of 3.7 million viewers in 2017 (Chicago Cubs-St. Louis Cardinals).

Thursday's game, which was cut short by rain in Washington, was also the most watched regular season MLB game on any network since 2011 — a span of nine years. It was way up from ESPN's opening night game last year: That contest between the Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners drew just 1.19 million viewers.

A late game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants delivered 2.76 million viewers, the largest ESPN audience ever for a late night (in the Eastern time zone) game.

So Cespedes homered then got about 25 high fives from unmasked Mets in the dugout and I’m wondering if MLB really doesn’t care now if the season finishes.

Watching Phillies-Marlins on MLB.TV and Nola's fastball is back where it was when he was at LSU. Not good for Philly. He's sitting 89-91 topping at 92.

Those rules are nothing but a bunch of eyewash.  Absolutely no way they can or will ever be enforced.  

Then this won’t last long. The only thing preventing the entire Mets team from requiring quarantine right now is Cespedes not having it. You only get that so many tins before someone does.

Matt Davidson tested positive for Covid. Scary shit, these guys testing positive after playing. A team could get wiped out (not in the mortal sense).

Typically the guy gets mentioned the most as who the Sox shouldn't draft seems to be a breakout guy later on. Call it Aaron Nola Syndrome.
