Are there one WC team or two this year? Seems pretty late to not be certain.

NL East is going to be a great test. Sillies, Gnats, Squaws & Marlins can all contend. Mess is a mess.

Yanks in the AL.


Phillies should easily win again.

I don't think it will be that big of deal.

Don't know yet. MLB has until March 1st to make a decision.

If they do here is a rundown of the teams the benefit the most. Well at least one opinion.

In 2013 there will be two wildcard teams per league. Also, Houston Astros will join the AL, so there will be two 15 team leagues each with five divisions.

That is well known. What isn't certain yet is this years playoff format, as best I can tell.

Sorry, I was answering the question regarding one or two WC teams for this season. I haven't heard about any changes being made in the format for this year. I'll be interested in what they come up with, if anything.

I sold the first CGC book ever on eBay and all I got was this stinking title.

Nationals extend Ryan Zimmerman through 2019 season, 6 years $100 M.

With this contract now finalized, the Nationals know they have locked up the core of their roster for years to come. There are now 11 key players under team control through at least 2015: Jordan Zimmermann, Ian Desmond and Tyler Clippard (under control through '15), Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Wilson Ramos, Danny Espinosa and Drew Storen (under control through '16), Jayson Werth (under control through '17), Bryce Harper (under control through '17 or '18 depending on when he makes his debut) and Zimmerman (under control through '19).

There's room on the bandwagon, but its getting crowded. Get on now.

I read an interview with Vernon Wells in the local paper today. He said that he has been working with the Cubs batting coach near his home in Texas over the off season to redo his swing. Last season he was pull-happy and performed so poorly he torpedoed Tony Reagins' (former GM's) job. If he can come through this season he'll do a lot to beef up the Angels' lineup. Of course, Trumbo's and Morales' recoveries weigh heavy here, too.

My Dodger fan friends are not too enthusiastic about this coming season. \:p

Looks like the format can change this year.

Oy gewalt!

I went to Angels Stadium today to redeem my vouchers for real game tickets this morning and was surprised to see hundreds of people lined up. The ticket office opened at 9:00 AM, and I got there at 8:15.

Pujols fever must have hit Orange County hard. The first few hundred people lined up got green wrist bands, and the second group of 500 got white wrist bands numbered from 500 to 999. I stayed until about 12:30 PM, and by that time they hadn't gotten to all of the green wrist bands. I was told to come back tomorrow as they wouldn't get to my number group (800s) by the time they close at 6:00 PM.

Already a number of games have sold out for discount ticket holders, and I'm not ready to be a big spender for game this year. \:p

I can see Yankees and BoSox tickets selling out quickly, but this is a first for the Halos.
