Comments: Expos Nats begin new season

Ah yes, the painful memories of being a Senators fan.
We'll always have Frank Howard to remember and it was fun if you just enjoyed a day at the ballpark and weren't into winning and stuff like that.
The best part of losing the Senators is that, in retrospect, we really can blame Bush for this one.

No more than Bush will blame himself! Baseball is dead-on deep-down personal.

My Dad still hates the Dodgers for all the years they stood between the Giants and the NL pennant (way back in the 60's) and that covers the period he was living and working in L.A.

Aah, baseball blogging. I still haven't watched a game yet this season. My team, the Mets, got off to a bad start but have since picked up the pace. This could be a fun year!

T.S., that reminds me of what they used to say at home openers when the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn: "Wait 'till next year!"

Baseball: the sport that requires each player to contribute in offense and defense -- none of that "special team" crap, each player has to pull their full weight.

Spring! Ain't it grand?
