Welcome back to Baseball Woofles

There are quite a few ballparks that have been replaced since I first visited them; Tiger Stadium in Detroit, San Diego, St Louis, Cincy, Pittsburgh, Yankee, Shea, Miami, Dallas, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Philly, RFK in DC, Montreal. Minneapolis.

I've managed to attend games at all the replacements apart from ATL and DAL


I'm nowhere near as obsessed with the sport as I was in the 90s and 00s, but I'm going to try to take a bit more interest this season.

I even watched parts of some Spring Training games the last two evenings.

I know that a lot on Minor League ballplayers are on low wages, but to go all Breaking Bad........

Quote
A minor league baseball player is facing drug charges after police in Colorado found 21 pounds of methamphetamine and 1.2 pounds of oxycodone pills in his Chicago Cubs duffel bag.

The Vail Daily reports Jesus Camargo-Corrales, 25, of Tempe, Arizona, appeared in Eagle County Court on Thursday on charges including unlawful distribution of methamphetamine and oxycodone, both class 1 drug felonies, as well as charges of unlawful possession of each drug, both class 4 drug felonies.

Happy Opening Day everyone

with the Sox game rained off, I watched the Twins @ Brewers.

A great game, featuring a 9th inning comeback and extra inning victory for Milwaukee

Don't worry mate, we'll win on Saturday, or the day after, or the day after that, we really are the Aston Villa of Baseball.

The Red Sox lost their first three game of the season, but haven't lost since.

Currently stand at 7 and 3 at the top of the AL East

Dodgers look the best team again, but the Padres could give them a run in the NL West.

A few days ago, Joe Musgrove threw the first no-hitter in Padres history (formed in 1969)
