Is he going in the pen? He is very inconsistent as a starter.

Beckett should be healthy to start the season so he will be in long relief. He is good insurance though because Beckett and Billingsley are huge question marks.  If he can be an innings eater and put up an era of 4.00 (very possible), its a great signing.

That is a great signing then, and with the Dodgers offense even if he does spot start, he should be fine.

I'm very excited for this season. There's an air that's been missing from previous seasons.

 

 

Could be a slow start for the Blue though.

MLB has them and the DBacks going to Australia to play games to open the season.

I'm not too happy about this crap, that's a long way to go to play two games that count March 22nd, return then restart the season March 30th. That is some BS.

Season set to start in hours Down Under. Puig hitting where he should be. What up with Van Slyke?

lol at the Hater.

 

Anyway, Dodgers start the Real Season 1-0 beating the DBacks Kershaw style.

 

 

Kershaw flashed his Cy Young form, Scott Van Slykehomered and the NL West champions opened the Major League Baseball season with a 3-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night at Sydney Cricket Ground.

A crowd of about 40,000 watched as MLB played its first regular-season game in Australia.

Kershaw, who signed a seven-year, $215 million contract in January, allowed one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings. Van Slyke hit a two-run homer and also doubled.

The first pitch was delayed because of rain for 14 minutes. By then, the long trip Down Under had taken even longer for some Arizona players

 

Guess it was a good thing Kemp went on the D/L (big surprise) and Crawford was off on Maternity Leave with Van Slyke apparently ready to carry the load on Opening Day.

Go Blue!

It was a great way to start the season however my only concern was Puig and his 0-5 3 s/o performance. Gotta get on base as the leadoff buddy!

Not to worry, Miley is one tough cookie.

Puig already with 2 hits and a RBI tonight albeit in the 2 spot.

Currently Blue 5, Snakes zip.

    • This is a huge cop out and it says that the only way to save our beloved means of governing is to bail out of the system and then have a revolution and start over again. You fix the system by casting knowledgeable votes in every frikkin' election. Every election. Local, state and federal. The situation is screwed right now because frikkin' lazy voters don't take the time to learn anything about their local candidates, or their state ones (here in NC that really bit us in the ass, didn't it?). Those elections lead to the ones above them AND frikkin help decide who will be taking part in primaries and even putting in the votes for the electoral college. An educated and willing electorate also tears the crap out of big money donors and tends to churn the political offices for the good of all. But no, a bunch of folks just drag themselves out of their cocoons to cast a vote for the president and maybe check off a box or two of people whose names sound familiar every four years. And then we've got the whiniest and most self righteous of the bunch, like you, who say that votes don't matter and they aren't going to get involved in the whole corrupt system. They march around smug and whining, putting on airs of intellectual superiority while complaining about every frikkin thing under the sun. Get up, learn your candidates and start voting local and up. All politics is local. ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. Your town council or Board of Education or County Commission matters. Your State senators and representatives matter. BIG FRIKKIN TIME HERE. Doing this is how you really start reforming the system. This is how you start beating back the machinery in place that goes and grabs people by the busload and brings them to the polls to elect idiots and thieves. And then, maybe, just maybe, you run for office or volunteer some time to work for a candidate you believe in. You attend meetings and voice your opinions and hold politicians accountable, those in your own backyard first. And buy a frikkin' newspaper once in a while or buy an ad in one. No matter what crap the politicos try to tell you, those guys and gals scribbling notes at government meetings and then getting ink stains from printing the stories are your first line of defense and your best teachers. But stop acting all superior about not voting. Really, be a responsible adult. You have to work for it. Our republic doesn't have a reset button like your Xbox.
    • Steve Smith. Receiver, actually. No worries though.
    • With CJ's back issues I'm not even sure how good I feel this year.  If he's a full go and we do go DE at 8 on paper it's top front 7 of all time worthy.
