Opening Day

Ahhh... opening day...

My top 5 All-time favorite Yankees list (was chatting with my sister about this)
  1. Nettles
  2. Mattingly
  3. Jeter
  4. Munson
  5. Guidry

If my dad were still alive - he most certainly go with:

  1. Mantle
  2. Ford
  3. Richardson 4
  4. Clete Boyer (but he'd admit that Nettles had just as good a glove, and a better stick)
  5. Yogi
  6. Jeter

Finally, while nothing would make me happier than a 0-162 Mets season, here's my top 5 Mets list, just 'cause we were also talking about the Mets...

  1. Doc Gooden (also a Yankee)
  2. Lee Mazilli (I do believe he was a Yankee)
  3. Strawberry (also a Yankee)
  4. D. Wright (will one day certainly be a Yankee)
  5. Keith Hernandez (just remember not to ask him to help you move - my sister pointed this out for me)

Pitchers and Catchers!

Hope springs eternal!

Baseball is almost back!

Predictions purely based on my own biases:

AL East - Yankees
AL Central - Tigers
AL West - A's
Wildcard - Red Sox

NL East - Mets
NL Central - Brewers
NL West - Padres
Wildcard - Cubs (ha!)

Yanks beat Mets in a 7 game subway series. ARod gets 12 hits and drives in 23 runs in those 7 games.

Like I said - hope springs eternal.
