So how are folks doing on their brackets? I didn't submit one this year, so I need to live vicariously through someone else. Anyone killing it?

I filled out two brackets, and my middle son filled out two brackets.

My first bracket (the "SRSBIZ"), is ranked 593219 out of 8,500,000 on ESPN
My second bracket (the I'm going to choose who wins based on things other than the team) is ranked 1,956,691 out of 8.5M
My poor son, is in the 8M's. His bracket was SLAUGHTERED

It only gets worse for me from here on out though. Only one of my Final Fours made it (Louisville). I had Louisville, Zaga, Butler, and Florida in it. with Louisville and butler in the game.

Over Under on day of the year we have our first No Hitter?

I'm saying May 9th.

And... Watching the Astros last night, they didn't look that bad. Played together as a team, and had timely hitting. I'm rooting for them to do well. I would love to see them kick the Yankees teeth down there throat, and then for Bo Porter to walk over to Giardi, and say "How's Arod?"

Carson Palmer is the gift that keeps on giving.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Well good to see the Pirates starting off the same way they ended last year:

AJ carrying the pitching and the offense as fucking anemic as ever.

AJ was absolutely on fire after he gave up that bomb to Rizzo. It's just too bad it took McCutchen getting plunked and then a ball getting in Pedro's zone (which you'd assume was buried under the plate given how many bad pitches he swings at) in the bottom of the 9th against Carlos MarLOL of all people to even get a run across.

Here we go again..

Well, I have to say, I'm glad for Colt, but the trade.... Well.... It really doesn't make much sense.

We trade McCoy, and a 6th, and get a 5th and a 7th back?

What kind of "upgrade" was that in picks? Why didn't we just dump him?

I just don't see the value in the trade. We got rid of a backup QB, and a 6th rounder, to pick up 2 draft picks, one better than the one we had, and one worse than the one we had.

Oh well, At least Colt and Phil have chances at rings next year.

EDIT:
I would have rather traded Colt + 3rd to get a 2nd. (The reported offer AZ had on the table at the beginning of FA)

Nevermind, it seems he'll be ok. Then again... Chris Carpenter seemed he was gonna be ok, and never came back to form...

Also, Robinson Cano fires Scott Boras.

Well, that was fast... sorta... feel bad for Yu losing his perfect game on the last out.

Sad it took the video to be leaked for Rice to be fired.

Also, wow, Colin Cowhead is right for once, Hypocritical of Rutgers as they were all about getting Don Imus fired for using slurs about their players, but cover up for the coach that did the same.

Have not seen the video of the Rutgers coach, but heard it's pretty frekkin' awful.
I think Johan is done. He's 34. I can't imagine that he's going to be bouncing back from this quickly.
I was rooting for Yu. I just want a Japanese pitcher to prove that he can come to the US and have sustained success. On a related note I have a friend who pitched for several seasons in Japan (not sure if he's pitching again this year. He said he's made enough money that as long as he continues to not be dumb with it, he'll never work again), and he says that over there, the culture of baseball is so different than here. Also, the organization takes great care of it's players. His first season, they put him in a condo with another player, who helped him get acclimated to the league, and Japan in general.
