Major League Baseball’s regular season gets going as St. Louis and Chicago played the first game Sunday night; the Cubs lost, 3-0. Monday’s games will start just after 1 p.m. ET and continue well into the night, as 28 teams play
Some other baseball news today is the late trade between the San Diego Padres and the Atlanta Braves, who sent their All Star closer Craig Kimbrel and another player to San Diego in exchange for four players and a draft pick.
Fans of the Washington Nationals and Seattle Mariners are hoping their teams deliver on high expectations that they’ll play deep into this year’s postseason. Meanwhile, fans in St. Louis, Baltimore, and Los Angeles are primed for their home teams to win big.
Of course, amid all the expectations, we should all bear in mind that two wild-card teams played in last year’s World Series and let´s not forget that in 204 days, two teams will face off in the 2015 World Series.
Additionally, the Toronto Blue Jays have two exciting young players in pitcher Daniel Norris and center fielder Dalton Pompey. The Cubs have a trio of budding stars in outfielder Jorge Soler, second baseman Javier Baez, and third baseman Kris Bryant, who hit back-to-back-to-back homers last month.
And many folks in Boston and beyond are looking forward to watching the Red Sox’ outfielder/second baseman Mookie Betts, 22, get more playing time in 2015.
