I would just like to send out a note of thank you for getting your labor deal done like mature adults and not going on strike or having a lockout, like some of your brethren athletes and we all know who they are. Now with this gratitude there is a mix of bewilderment, Opening day of the 2012 baseball season was supposedly Wednesday March 30, in Tokyo, Japan. The Oakland A's and the Seattle Mariners played in Tokyo while everybody else is still playing in the Cactus League and the Grapefruit League until a week later, April 4. Makes no sense because most fans in America could not see the game, unless the Tokyo game was an exhibition game meant to entertain Japanese fans and drum up more business for baseball. That actually makes sense to me because even though you would like to be America's favorite national pastime again, instead of football, you are still a business and in need of making money.
But just the same, once again thank you MLB for having baseball season start on the day it is supposed to and not putting sports fans through more sickness and torture by hearing about millionaire and billionaire arguing over who gets what and how much. Nice not wanting to hurl hearing of such arguments.
GO CARDINALS! ANGELS! PIRATES ( yeah I know)! TIGERS! and RANGERS!
