    Extra Innings Teams, as the kids call them

    1. Mets- that starting rotation makes them worth watching every night. plus Cespedes is my guy, still rockin the cespedes red sox tee on the reg

    2. Orioles- stacked lineup and a lot of strikeout pitchers...exactly what i like to see

    3. Cubs- lot of former Red Sox....plus they always have the meltdown factor going which is entertaining in any sport

    4. Dodgers- Kershaw.

    5. Astros- Correa is probably the best player in baseball not named Trout, the rotation has multiple guys who could sneak into a cy young race, plus that new closer they got from Philly throws lasers. Altuve is also the most entertaining position player in the game

    who are the teams YOU look forward to watching most?

    honorable mentions go to Washington, Seattle, Toronto and Arizona

    You are right about the Mets, but not about Cespedes. Conforto will be the one to watch on that squad. He is a gamer.

    I've signed up for mlb pass the last few years even though I watch it very little. I think its good to have on in the background for my soon to be 7 year old while he enjoys little league.
    not sure about signing up this year.

    my own team that I like

    and the royals


    apparently they can't do it again
    it's been the better part of two years of a team that has no business doing it and all they do is do it

    it's fascinating and fun to be honest

    Let's Go OAKLAND!

    The Mariners (local boys here) will be out of it by Memorial Day, as is tradition.

    Aside from my Cardinals, I gotta say Mets and Marlins. Mets pitching is ridiculous. Miami bc Stanton is my dude and Fernandez will be back.

    Dodgers - I always want to watch Kershaw. He's a genius on the mound.
    Pirates - Can they finally pull out a division championship?
    Cubs - Well, I think I just want to see 2003 all over again. I think they're way better than that team, though.
    Giants - can they win it again with it being an even year?

    Quite honestly, I'm not really excited to watch any team in the AL. The AL East is a dumpster fire waiting to happen. The AL Central should be sorta competitive, but I think the Royals will run away with that shit. The AL West will be pretty competitive, but I'm not really excited about any of those teams. MAYBE the Astros.

    I'm more of an NL guy (even here in Boston...the Red Sox are STILL gonna be miserable, probably notching 84 wins).

    They will. Red Sox signed Price which by itself gives their team another 15-20 wins and Yankees have a great bullpen and a good rotation -- just need Tex and Aroid to stay healthy.

    i think we can easily expect 86-88 but the people around here saying Championship this year are a little ridiculous...Hanley Ramirez is our fucking first baseman how good can you really be?

    Really hoping the sox improve by that much but ive learned to be skeptical with the red sox

    the way they played the last 50 games or so last year was very intriguing, but after price there's really nothing in that rotation...maybe rodriguez but everyone else is average as fuck unless you think Buccholz is still an above average pitcher, if thats the case then you have very low standards
