    Scoreboard Watching 2012

    Never too early to scoreboard watch.

    Cardinals won last night, Cubs and Pirates lost today.

    Volquez is on the mound for the Padres on MLB Network right now.

    The Phillies offense today with Howard and Utley looked awfully anemic.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Volquez looked pretty sharp in the first.

    He gave up 3 runs (2 earned) in 5 innings on 97 pitches...I liked our starter better.

    Don't forget the expected 4 walks in 5 innings. I love Edinson's arm...but I do NOT miss his accuracy.

    Anyone else find it amusing how the Cubs find new ways to lose? This is going to be another long year in Chi Town.

    Best quote I heard from a Cubs fan about this year's team:

    "When you look at the starting lineup, and Soriano isn't even one of the 5 worst players, you know you suck."

    Couldn't begin to get back to Cincy for Opening Day, will have to settle for going to Camden today for O's/Twins.

    Same ol' Volquez.

    Walking in a run.

    Walking in another run.

    Complaining, this time about the umpire ("I thought I made some good pitches for strikes and they were called balls," he said after the game.)

    I don't care how well he looked in the first three innings. He's looked good in stretches before. I'm thrilled that he's gone.

    I thought that the Brewers would be ok without Fielder. I know it's the first day of the season for them but if Braun isn't hitting, that team is going to have a ton of problems. Their offensive effort looks horrible in today's game.

    The had 5 runs on 10 hits, offense wasn't a problem.

    Last year they started 0-5 after getting swept by the Reds,before righting themselves and winning their division easily.

    One game in baseball means absolutely nothing.

    I believe you gave up on the Cards twice last year, and they ended up doing OK IIRC.

    Baseball is a marathon, and you're basing your comments on a one foot sprint.

    I know it's early but looking at the lineup, it just doesn't have the danger it used to (obviously). After Braun, there are easy outs. Weeks and Hart are nice players but they are players that don't scare me that much.

    Mike and PuffyPig have such a great Hepburn-Tracy thing going. It's so cute
