    Pretty rough to lose it on a hit right through his legs.

    Amazing.

    Tough break. Would a no hitter count against the Astros? They're not really an MLB team.

    that's pretty rough, have a feeling the Stro's are in for a few of those this year

    Probably didn't help that he bounced it up there. :p

    Very impressive debut by Jackie Bradley. How many guys playing in their first game do you see bounce back from an 0-2 count to take a walk? Against CC Sabathia no less?

    Oh man, that ought to be fantastic this year. Obviously the only all-star game worthy of a spot on the bucket list.

    Sweet. I'm completely convinced that baseball games are really one of the few games that can only be truly be appreciated live instead of watching on TV.

    It is glorious. Except I lost Beckett for the season in my Dodgers franchise midway through his first start.

    Every year, it is the one game I can count on to never disappoint.

    I only have an XBox unfortunately. I've played it before at my friend's. It's vastly superior to the 2K series.

    I got it the day it came out, and have just been messing around until last night. Last night Operation Sports released their Full Minors Roster, so I stayed up all night starting my franchise.

    Best game out there, I think. And with the full minors rosters, it keeps me busy for hours.

    I'm two games into my season. Pedro Alveras has 3 home runs in two games, wish it would be like that IRL.

    What about Diamond Dynasty? I'm intrigued. Would love to start a JC team. But I understand you can't use the created team in other parts of the game. Too bad, because I would love to have a JC franchise team.

    What if we did an online, fantasy draft franchise or season? Idk how that works but I've seen people talking about it. Would be fun.

    Sweet. Any idea when that'll be, Rox?

    I think we can play with however many people we want, so if there's only four of us we can each just choose our team, and then let the CPU take the other teams or whatever. This'll be rad I think.

    I promise that I won't be posting these after every game, but I wanted to point out that these photoshop's/illustrations always make me chuckle, regardless of a win or loss. I wish I had begun (started to do so last season) following that blog sooner.

    I'm glad the Yanks don't have a similar blog- I think it'd start looking like the King Joffrey's "collection" from Game of Thrones by mid-May.
