    Yeah, but the entire right field seemed to be Phillies fans. You could hear the "we got Harper" chant on TV.

    :D You could hear it here too, but that didn't start until they boo'ed him every time Harper showed his face. Phillies fans call Nationals Park "Citizens Bank Park South" ;) It's only about 2-1/2 hours from Philly and we do like our baseball. (Not enough to eat horse crap, though. :p )

    So, the Red Sox are not off to a great start so far BUT last night was epic because Eduardo Nunez (not a pitcher) pitched. He has a better ERA than some 'real' pitchers in the rotation now.

    Is it me or does there seem to be an inordinate number of long balls?

    yes just ask my Dodgers.....as a team they have 21 HR already with 64 RBI......thats just plain carzy.

    Cody Bellinger already has 6 HR!!!!!!!!!

    our bullpen....now that's another issue:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    damn another one for bellinger.........i think that's a record of 10 straight games with a hr to start the season!!!!!!

    luckily it was on espn so i was able to watch them for once. i wish i can see more of them this year.

    i just wonder how long our bats can keep up this torrid pace. hopefully by the time we get our ace and rich hill backup in the pitching rotation our pitching can catch fire as well.....i know at some point we are gonna cool down and we will need the arms of our ace back to keep us in games.

    My pitiful Royals beat the yanks at their house in game one of four. I think to make it sporting they spotted us one. :)

    not if the Boys in Blue have anything to say about it:p:p:p:p:p:p:p:p

    look out guys, but we are getting healthier by the minute with our pitching staff. some of the youngsters like Urias is moving out of the starting rotation to bolster our relievers like it was supposed to be intended at the start of the season. as long as our bats keeps swinging and our starters can keep the relievers fresh, we will most likely see another World Series!!!!!!

    I know there is no crying in baseball but I get a bit misty every time I think about the Royals pitching :)

    Damn, Astros just got hammered. Hinch and Luhnow suspended for a year by MLB and fired by the team. Fear the Red Sox (at least Cora) are next and he may get the lifetime banhammer.

    Just WoW. That is getting your hand slapped pretty darn hard. Everyone is looking for that edge in sports and it would be staggering to know how much out right cheating goes on. Rules are rules and I think they should be in place. Punishments for infractions should also be in place and issued when required. Banned - fired - and a five million dollar fine seems a bit much for stealing signs. I guess the commish is pretty serious about cracking down on such infractions.

    I'm OK with traditional sign stealing (i.e. guy on second). I think using the replay technicians to decode the sign sequence and transmit that to the dugout while rigging a monitor to the tunnel from the center field camera is a bit much.

    I'm going to make guess that Cora is gone too, but that the Red Sox are waiting (probably as directed by MLB) to wait until MLB acts before they drop the hammer. I'm hopeful praying that the Sox didn't have such an elaborate set up here.

    No argument from me. Cheating is cheating. They will never stop stealing signs from a base runner on second. :) It's as much baseball as a sign from a fielder directing cut offs or pick offs. Baseball... I am ready as always for some baseball. Loved playing and love watching.

    Yeah. Cora has found the way out of baseball I think. Waiting to see who else in Boston is caught up in it too, wasn't just him. So stupid.
    But I'm ready already for the season to start!

    At least a little reprieve for the Sox legacy is they couldn't do it in the post season like the Astros. I know it's very minir, but at least I can grab onto that. :(

    I'm not trying to deflect from the Red Sox / Cora, because I expect similar punishments for them that the Astros got (except for the GM since Dombrowski is already gone).

    I've been listening to MLB Network on Sirius all day, well actually, since news broke yesterday. The mood initially was shock at the punishements (from both too harsh to too lenient). Today as more former players and whatnot were on the air the term "glass house" was being repeated over and over. I think sign stealing is far more widespread than two teams and Alex Cora. Maybe not such an elaborate setup, but a larger problem none the less.

    I've also heard the term "dead man walking" for Cora, so, um, who should I be rooting for as the next manager of the Boston Red Sox.
