Default *Official* 2018 Flubs Thread

Ian Happ hits the very first pitch of the season out of Marlins Park. That team in Miami is going to be awful this year, and the Scrubs are already taking full advantage.

Look at all those people disguised as empty seats!

Miami is a total, complete mess and needs to be moved to Montreal ASAP, with new owners.

Wonder what Jeter thought when he saw the first pitch of the season leave the stadium?

Schwarber remains a farce in LF, and Lester is in severe decline.

The Cubs still will easily win this opening series, however.

The crowd is mostly cub fans on a wonderful florida day. If they werent playing the cubs, the stadium would be a ghost town.

I just checked the box score. I see Lester is on track for Cy Young this year..............

I'm looking forward to Yu Darvish. On The Score the other morning, they were gushing over him and even went so far to say he has 12 pitches. Yes, 12. "He has many different fastballs." They ignored how his numbers have been moving in the wrong direction the past two or three years. Gonna make them cry.

So Happ hits one on the first pitch of the season? That will be a 30 for 30 and memorialized when?

The Marlins are not leaving after all that money was poured into a new stadium. Maybe the As will move there if they get phased out of revenue sharing?

The Cubs are not interesting enough to deserve a thread.

After Darvish Lester Hendricks I don't know who the other two are. Darvish didn't look dominating by any means. I still think there's 3 teams in the N.L better than them. Oh Duh I forgot Quintana

The thing with the 2018 Cubs is the fact that their pitching really isn't up to whatever crazy standard the media is holding them to.

Do they have a true ace? Is Darvish one? Leister (sp?) is starting to show regression, and Quintana is what he is (a three). They are relying on Hendricks and the guy they signed from Colorado to be the "best rotation" in baseball, but there are plenty that are better.

I think they make the playoffs, but lose because of that pitching. They need to fix those holes.
