  1. Agreed. And I don't want to hear the "he'll get more fastballs" argument either.
  2. Golf is a relaxing stroll through the woods ruined by frustration. It's probably the most difficult thing I've ever tried to master but like you said when everything is going well and you hit a perfect shot it feels awesome! You should stick with it man. Everything that's hard to do is so much more rewarding in the end. Poker isn't for everybody that's for sure. If you can't sit there and wait and be patient it probably isn't a good game for you. It, like golf, can be extremely frustrating.
  3. I gotcha. I've never had luck with sports betting so I just stick to poker, black jack and fantasy sports lol. I love golf and enjoy watching Tiger play just because I appreciate his skill level. As a golfer myself it absolutely amazes me to watch him perform on the golf course. I'm also a huge Graeme McDowell fan.
  4. I don't play games often but I did buy last years Show. I debated getting this years game but decided it probably wasn't worth it. Still my two all time favorite baseball games are Ken Griffey Jr Baseball for the N64 and MVP Baseball for PS2. I heard rumors of EA producing MVP again and I'm hoping that's the case.
  5. I hear good things about this Tiger Woods fellow...
  6. I completely agree. I really hope Buck addresses this. Also was not pleased to see Casilla seemingly not running very hard on the last out.
  7. I don't think he was. Dropping Melky this early for Jake is kinda crazy.
  8. Yep just got this txt from the Sun. Love it! With Webb back and the new additions I'm excited about our defense for next yea.r
  9. My first was in 1993 against the Milwaukee Brewers. I was 8 years old and I don't remember a ton about the game other than I went with my father, mother and sister and we sat in the upper deck right behind home plate. My favorite memory was getting my baseball signed by Mike Mussina, Brad Pennington and Fernando Valenzuela. I still have the ball on the top of my computer table.
  10. I feel like I'm watching golf when Bordick is speaking. That said he hasn't been awful and there have been a couple times I've enjoyed his analysis. I think we have all been somewhat spoiled by the good color and play by play guys we have had in the booth recently. I'll give him time to grow.
  11. I went to the Shorebirds opener last night with a few friends and we were all very impressed with Machado. You can see it when he's on the field he just looks so relaxed and comfortable. He totally looks like he was born to play this game. As for his at bats, he absolutely scorched all three balls I saw him hit. When he hit the triple his swing seemed so effortless and the ball just kept carrying 'til it hit the base of the wall in right center. It was really cool to watch. I can't wait to watch his development over the next few years.
  12. The first one that comes to mind for me is a Will Clark grand slam against the Red Sox back in, I believe, 2000. He hit it during a make up game after a rain out. Cleared the right field scoreboard and landed on the flag court. My friend and my family and I were sitting down next to the ball girl on the right field side because the person that owned the seats didn't show up for the make up game. It was an amazing experience!
  13. Agreed. Definitely nice to hear something positive with all the negativity surrounding this franchise. I'm really excited to get started with Buck's first spring training. I still feel like we aren't much more than a .500, or slightly better, ball club but I'm still fairly optimistic about what we could do this year. Hopefully this year we start to take a step back toward respectability.
  14. Well as much as I would prefer Manny to be a little more mature than that, remember, he is just a kid. Hopefully he will do some growing up here soon. I think the maturity level of most kids this age is basically what you would expect from most highschoolers. The social netwoking of the past few years has just made it more visible to the rest of us.
