    Opening Day: Who is going?

    Section 374. Not my first opening day, but first in nearly a decade.

    What was your first job?

    I was an umpire/field leader (reported injuries, put the bases down and collected them after games) for little league. Then I was a dishwasher at a catering hall two or three times over the weekend. I loved the dishwashing gig as much as any job I've ever had. Spent most of the day messing around with my friends who worked there, snuck beers from the bar. Good free food. I started there when I was 14, and continued working there once a week even after I got more "regular" jobs. Probably didn't completely quit that job until I was 20 or so.

    HOF announces veterans committee nominees

    Marvin Miller has had the largest impact of any non-player in the past 50 years. Maybe ever. Its an absolute shame that he's not in the Hall already. I hope he's elected this year, or at least before his death. Torre and LaRussa are also slam dunks.

    Another beer thread...

    I like 90-minute IPA too, but I think the 60 is so much more well-balanced. Also, I like that I can have a couple of 'em. More than one 90-minute IPA doesn't sit well on the palate or on the stomach.

    Another beer thread...

    I've had this in St. Augustine a few times. Its excellent. A nice alternative for us Baltimore-area folks is the Abita Pecan Ale which is released in the fall. Love it here. The tour is probably the best I've been on too (they tap directly into a secondary fermenter, and you have the freshest beer of your life). You have to reserve it pretty far in advance, but you can also put your name on stand by and have some drinks at the bar and hope that someone else doesn't show. Great great place. New Belgium Trippel costs $10 for six, and is, in my opinion, better than Golden Monkey. If I had to pick only one beer to drink for the rest of the year, I'd pick Dale's. By way of introduction, I'm Eric, a beer nerd. I live in Southeast York County. I can tell you lots and lots about the emerging beer scene in York and Lancaster Counties (We're up to at least four microbreweries in each county. I know I'm forgetting some too). My five favorite beers at the moment: 1. Unibroue La Fin Du Monde (Quebec) 2. Ommegang Hennepin (Cooperstown) 3. Dale's Pale Ale (Colorado) 4. Dogfish Head 60-Minute IPA (Deleware) 5. Saison DuPont (Belgium)

    Gausman being called up?????

    I'm really excited to see Gausman pitch. Who do you guys think gets removed from the 40-man roster to make space? Belfiore and Stinson seem like the most likely candidates.
  9. I may've seen a few more, but I can't recall them off of the top of my head. Here's what I remember, in the order in which I enjoyed them. I did enjoy all of these movies to some degree, FWIW.

    Yankees sign Youkilis, one year, $12M.

    CBA stipulates that for the cap purposes its the AAV of the contracts, not the salary in year 'x'.

    The Hold Steady

    I'll be at The Ottobar. I think they added a second show at U-St.

    ESPN mag says orioles will....

    Chris Davis is replacing 2011 Luke Scott who played in 60 games and put up a .700 OPS. Sort of like 2011 Chris Davis did. The good news for us is that Davis is 26 going in to this season and Luke will be turning 34.

    Wakefield retires

    Roy Halladay will likely win his 200th this season (currently at 188). So, there will be a portion of this season where there isn't a 200-game winner active, but its unlikely to be the entire season.

    Guthrie traded to Rockies for Hammel & Lindstrom

    Traded to CLE at the deadline last year.

    Matt Antonelli

    Statistically he reminds me of Chone Figgins of 2004-2009. If the O's could get that kind of production at the cost-controlled salary, they've gotten a steal here.
