Benz Posted March 7, 2010 Share Posted March 7, 2010 I've been getting into the Spring Training this year just for kicks. Too far away to go to the games, but at least I can watch SOME of them on tv, and keep track of the scores on MLB.com In spring training it's split up into two different Leagues, just like the regular season. However the leagues have different names: The Grapefruit league, and the Cactus league. Also, different: The AL teams play the NL teams, but seemingly not other same league teams (opposite of what happens during a regular season.). In the Grapefruit league you have: Florida Marlins (Woohoo!) Detroit Tigers Tampa Bay Rays Toronto Blue Jays New York Mets Houston Astros Atlanta Braves Boston Red Sox (OH YEAH BABY!) Philadelphia Phillies Minnesota Twins Pittsburgh Pirates Baltimore Orioles New York Yankees (FUCK THOSE ASSHOLES WITH AN ELEPHANT DICK IN THE EAR DIRTY MOTHERFUCKER PEICE OF SHIT TEAM...) St. Louis Cardinals Washington Nationals ...and in the Cactus League you have: Cleveland Indians San Fransisco Giants Colorado Rockies Chicago Cubs Chicago White Sox Kansas City Royals Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners LA Dodgers San Diego Padres Texas Rangers Milwaukee Brewers Cincinnati Reds LA Angels Arizona Diamondbacks Now, how are the teams we care about doing? Well let's see.. as of 3/7/10... The Florida Marlins are 3 - 1, they lost their first game today to the Cardinals. Still, not a bad start (eventhough I need to note here that the W's and L's... L's in particular don't always mean anything big if the team is trying something different or just putting their 3rd stringers in... But over all, it helps.) The Boston Red Sox are 2 - 2 and as of right now they're beating Baltimore in the 9th inning. Yesterday they won one of their split games, and lost another. (Something else that only occurs during Spring training... Half of a team can be one place playing one opponent, while the other half will play at their "home field" against onther opponent at the same time.) The Newb Dork Skankees are 1 - 4, losing today 11-0. That makes me feel good inside. ...this just in Red Sox win 5-4 over Baltimore making them 3-2. That's better! I'll update at least once a week, if not more if I get bored... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
