Do you remember when the MLB held opening day in Japan?
...that was stupid.
This year, we've got a slate of six games. And they'll all be held in America.
As exciting as opening day is - and it sure is exciting - there's still one huge knock on baseball. It's the classic MLB problem: so many teams are already out of the running, and no one's even thrown a pitch. That said, here are the Sports Casual MLB predictions:
East: Boston Red Sox
Central: Minnesota Twins
West: Texas Rangers
Wild Card: New York Yankees
East: Washington Nationals
Just Kidding: Philadelphia Phillies
Central: Cincinnati Reds
West: San Francisco Giants
Wild Card: Atlanta Braves
Wow! Those are some bold picks. But seriously. I'll take the Kansas City Royals over the New York Mets in the world series. And by that I mean the Boston Red Sox over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Can we just play for a couple months and then skip right to the playoffs?
