I love how the security guards were just waddling over to stop him, but made no attempt to get him before he got to the players.

You Pirates fans saying Bedard, is that Erik Bedard? Not a great idea relying on his health, if that's indeed who you are referring to...

Yep, we're aware. We're just kinda hoping he can stay healthy.

I'm the same way with the Jays. "Kinda hoping."

Yep, that's why it's a good idea to have 6 or 7 guys capable of being rotation pitchers right now. The guy breaks down more then a Jag, but he's a capable #2/3 pitcher when he's in the rotation.

Yeah, I got a good friend who's a Jays fan and that's pretty much how he describes it.

The Jays would be incredible if they didn't wait until they were down 4 before getting hot

PS - realise it's only been 3 games but ya

Let's Go Tigers!

Down 3 runs in the 9th and 2 runs in the 11th and come back to win it on an Avila homer.

On another note, I know it's 2 games and all, but damn I like how the Pirates staff is looking so far.

Bedard had a great first outing, should be a major inning eater if he can stay healthy and will give the Bucos a chance to win more often then not.
Karstens yesterday looked like he did last year, it's a good thing.
McDonald's been decent the past couple years, good #4 guy.
Correia won't kill the team as a #5, and I honestly still think Lincoln could be a good pitcher here eventually, whether he's used mostly in the pen or as the #5.

And let's not forget that they have a couple guys that should be top half of the rotation pretty easily in Burnett and Morton that are on the DL right now. Both of them look like they should be back in the thick of things soon.

Yep, I still believe in >.500 ball in Pittsburgh.
And the Orioles are 3-0!!11!! Fitting that those two are both off to good starts, as they have a lot of postseason history back when I was younger.

The only question MLS should be asking with regard to the Triangle is not “if?” or “how?” but merely “when?” The logistics can be worked out later.

Give me all your Reese's eggs, and nobody gets hurt. Well....except the Reese's eggs, because they're people too.

I still think their format and attempts to American-ize the sport rather than sticking with what every other league on the planet has done is irritating.

Hello guys. Tom Rowe is KHL's Lokomotiv Yaroslavl new head coach. If anyone can give me some insight into what kind of a man and coach he is, please comment in this thread.

Do not want?

Wat.

As disappointing as the MLS's decisions are regarding americanization of the sport, it would still be great for the area to have a professional sports option during the Hurricanes offseason.

I already go to a decent bit of Railhawks games, seeing the club move up to MLS would be amazing.

I agree that the Do. Not. Want. response seems odd. One of the attractions of MLS is pointed out by Luke: it doesn't overlap with the current sports, so it shouldn't be competing with the NHL or college sports. And if the person putting up the money wanted to be a minority Canes owner, they would be at this point.

I think it makes perfect sense in theory, but the practical issues (bigger stadium than WakeMed, owner) are major hurdles that I don't see navigated in the near future.

I'll take an MLS franchise. It would grow the area in a good way and bring more business. I would enjoy going to the games in the offseason and it would be a nice change of pace. Now what would really be amazing is to have an MLB franchise, but that was shot down when the Marlins moved to Miami. Any addition of a pro team is great for the area.

I'm a not a soccer fan, but I certainly wouldn't be against this. I went to the game that decided the 2010 league title (which the RailHawks unfortunately lost), and I had a good time.
