Baseball is ON!

Winter is long gone (although in some parts it refuses to leave, see Cleveland last week). April has come and with that the start of the baseball season. Between April and October each team faces a 162-game regular season plus, if they can, the post-season games.

It is too early and I am not that knowledgeable to make predictions about who will go to the post-season and to the World Series, less who is winning it. But I do really hope that my favorite team, the New York Yankees make their way to the postseason and, maybe, win the World Series.

For almost any team a 6 year drought of World Championship can be seen as reasonable time, but for the Yankees (26 times World Champions) it is an eternity! Besides, it would be so cool that the Yankees win a World Series now that the Yankee Stadium has it days counted (see 2008 MLB All*Star Game @ Yankee Stadium (not yet confirmed)).

Although I love baseball and enjoy watching the games, it is difficult (near impossible) to watch every a single baseball game out there. I mean just consider watching 162 games of your team, plus the Home Run Derby, the All*Star Game, and all the postseason (must-see games). I will try to see the most Yankees games that I can and others interesting from other teams, at least one game per week.
