Good to see that 6 Red Sox made the midsummer classic. Congrats to Wake for making his first allstar appearance. I usually watch the homerun derby, and parts of the actual game. I'll watch to see if Halladay gets the nod for the American league, and should be Lincecum for the National league. I don't agree with all the selections, but every year someone gets disappointed. I will predict that the NL finally will one of these games.

MLB Opening Day 2009
I've grown tired of all the Red Sox vs. Yankees threads on here, you know who you are. I'm ready for this to be settled on the diamond. My predicitons for the AL East are as follows: 1ST Boston Red Sox
I'm just ready for the season to begin and whatever happens, happens. I just hope that the Sox play to their capabilities, and that should lead them to another divisional crown. Having said that i will be in attendance for a home opener, just not the game i would like to be at. I live 45 minutes west of Toronto, and my fiance scored tickets to someone's seats behind the plate, via work kickbacks! So thanks for the tickets. I will also be in attendance for the Red Sox on may31, they have an all you can eat day, so that will be a boys trip. My goal for that day is to do a hotdog and a beer every inning, with the food being free, it should get a little messy, the chili dogs there are great!
Feel free Yankee fans to comment and tell me how wrong i am, and how the Red Sox suck, goodluck and lets get this season going already!!

World Baseball Classic '09
While others show their displeasure for the "Classic" i myself have experienced it, and enjoyed it! Some want/expect players to stay in ST with their MLB club, so they're not injured and/or should be honoring contracts. Now ask yourself this, would you rather not watch the best from your respective country or would you rather watch games between split squads, prospects, or minor league contracts trying to make the club? If i'm paying to watch a live game in march i know i choose the WBC.
USA vs. Venezuela same venue.
I've also read a few threads about the WBC, i get the feeling its almost split but moreso i get the feeling it's not for everybody. But for the guy who already had drafted a few fantasy teams, or just has the itch to see some ball, it's gotta be better than grapfruit league no?
A few posts that i liked were from a Tampa Bay Rays fan too, thats not easy for me too say!
