    So, predictions for this season? How many wins for a playoff spot?

    Well, we just traded Holaday to the Rangers for a 33 year old minor league catcher and a 24 year old starting pitcher who is probably going to open the season in Toledo.

    It's better than what I thought we were going to get, which was nothing. He was out of options.

    Figure on 92 wins for a playoff spot if we do not win the division.

    If we're healthy, we will contend. But that's an awfully big "if". We've already got injury issues all over the pitching staff, both in the rotation and the pen.

    Well, it's not going to be Boyd. He got sent to Toledo.

    Bobby Parnell accepted an assignment to Toledo, too.

    Until further notice, it looks like the rotation is: Verlander-Zimmerman-Sanchez-Pelfrey-Greene. Until Norris gets back or if Greene or Pelfrey start getting bombed, anyway.

    Opening Night.

    Here's what I think. 100% chance of being full of ****.

    The back half of the rotation is questionable at best, as constructed. Age along with health will also take enough of a toll to cost this team a shot at postseason play.

    84-78. 3rd place behind Cleveland and KC.

    Hard to get excited for Opening Day when it's at night and two days after a handful of teams started.

    I don't see why MLB felt they needed to change it.

    JV has more hits than the Marlins so far.

    Well, at least it was a clean shot that broke up the no-no.

    JV's starting to ride really high in the strike zone. We're going to see our new bullpen toys right off the bat.

    6 IP, 3 ER, 97 pitches. That's plenty for Opening Night, Mr. Verlander.

    I thought they wanted to get more warm weather games early in April, but the Astros started in New York (and had a game postponed)yesterday, so who knows.

    It makes sense, playing down south for the first week or so. That way we don't have about 67 rainouts the first 5 days of the season.

    How about this one:

    The Pirates played at Forbes Field for 61 seasons. They opened at home exactly six times in that span. The first one was in 1954.

    Think about that one. The Pirates played at Forbes Field for 45 seasons before they played their first opener at home. They opened on the road every single year between 1893-1954.
