The Houston Astros haven't been designated to AAA yet?

I personally would rather see Darvish pitch tonight than Harrison.

I agree. For the record, I am currently undefeated and 1st in my league (tied). :) Happy opening day all!

I'm still confused as to how the Astros made it to Opening Night? Does the MLB really have high hopes for them? I figured they would have put 2 playoff teams out there, or anyone other than the Astros. I think I'd rather watch the Marlins than them.

They need all the help they can get. This is their only national game, I believe. They're trying to play up this rivalry.

I think it's a way to show casual fans that the Astros have moved to the AL. I bet they'll be talking about it all night.

I'm banking on the "rivalry" and how it will take off now that both teams share a division.

Thankfully I own Altuve, otherwise I'd have no interest in the game.

It sadly is. They get 2 other games on MLB Network but this is the only game on ESPN lol.

Makes sense as every game after this one will be better, so they can say "WOW, look at this season, the games keep getting better and better!"

It should have been Royals vs Dodgers tonight. How great would that be? The Amazing Cain vs The Head Ryu!

this games obviously to show the "new" AL Houston Astros and their new in-state/division rivalry Rangers... I've got my $ on Big Chris Carter tonight!! Like his Name Brother from Football, Chris Carter from the Vikings nickname was "All he does is catch Touchdowns!". Houstons Chris Carter will be nicknamed "All he does is Hit HomeRuns!".... I also have a couple shares of Ian Kinsler..... But I'll be watching his game just because baseballs FINALLY back!!

I own him in 1 league but I'm not happy about it. He didn't run last year and his SB% is bad for someone with speed. And that .286 BA seems like a mirage. Hope he proves me wrong.
