Please please let Mauer hit .350 again and Morneau jack 30-40. Please. And count me among the people who like Casilla and really hope he can put together a full season of his ability. If we get those things and a bullpen which outshines the gloomy expectations, 85+ wins and a hopeful September are headed our way.

We baseball fans can no longer call it our favorite "holiday!" Makes me sick.
Sure we can. Just pick your team's day (which had better be Friday if you're here:)). If it makes you sick, that means no need to fake it.

Thanks, MLB, for ruining Opening Day.
For as long as I could remember, opening day was always the day after the Reds' opening day. One extra day doesn't really bother me. If I was a n A's or Mariners fan, I wouldn't like starting the season and then going back to spring training.

I agree, I liked having Opening Day on a Monday with maybe one game on Sunday night to kick things off, with all the other teams starting the same day. It really was my favorite day of the year, and like all of you I would take the day off work and either watch all the games on TV or go to the Twins game if it was at home.
Agree with this. That opening full day on Monday was great. Baseball on TV from noon until past midnight. Nowadays? Tonight's game, which just ended (9:00 pm) is the only game today. Then tomorrow there are only 7 games, only 2 are on TV I can get and boy, I'm just stoked to watch the Nationals/Cubs game. NOT!
