Default Re: Batter Up! Play Ball!!

St Pete's was beautiful when I was there 15 years (edit: strike that ... more like 20 years) ago... this time went down to Ft. Myers beach, thankfully and narrowly missing the college spring break crowd by a few miles south

But traffic has grown exponentially in the 15 years (edit: ibid) since I was last down in SW Florida, and not sure I'd go back at this time of year again. Only got out fishing one morning and evening with nothing doing but a needlefish/gar in the backwaters on the fly. Nothing else on the beach by myself or at least 2 other anglers I ran into... think the 3+ days of 20knot winds dirtied things up too much, still was fairly clean but guessing the fish were just hanging off shore a bit more gulf side and were hunkered in the channels rather than the flats in the back.

Anyhoo, Yankees have started off the same as the previous 4 years. This is the first time they've lost 5 straight opening day games since the 30's (think it was 1934-38 if I recall the stat from yesterday).

Muts still have that enormous starting pitching advantage, and though I'm not a Muts fan by any stretch, one I can't stand at this point is Harvey. Too much drama. He would've fit in well with the Heir Steinbrenner Bronx Bombers.
