    How do you feel about your baseball team one week into the season?

    With 4-5 games in the books in the season, how do you feel your team is performing? or under-performing? It is early to tell in many cases but some problems have already come up this early in the season.

    We'd take him, always need another reliever.

    Honestly, no worries. To me, I take the baseball season a month at a time. There are so many games that it's really pointless to be worried at this point.


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    I know it's early, but I'm very happy. I'm a Rockies fan and they are off to a 3-1 start and in yesterday's home opener they roughed up Cole Hamels and the defending champs Philly.

    Agreed, but we knew offense was going to be the problem.

    Pitching started out incredibly hot last year too but then they hit that 20 game losing streak or whatever when the bats weren't working and the pitching was struggling. I think their bullpen will be better this year though.

    I'm hoping for a .500 season.

    braves offense has been pretty good so far..really impressed by jordan schafer..relief pitching is the biggest worry this year...lights out one night and give up 8 runs the next day..


    "We embrace that challenge and what it presents to us. Im going to approach all 12 games this way: Were going to win them all. If we prepare and then go out and execute, were going to win all 12. Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    I would give the Twins a B+ grade so far. 3-2 record with the two losses coming to Felix Hernandez who dominated the Twins in the opener, and Jarrod Washburn.

    Starting pitching has been okay, and if Baker comes back at 100% that aspect of the team should be solid. The bullpen is the biggest weakness on paper entering the season, and really hasn't shown anything (good or bad) thus far.

    The key to another division championship is going to be production from Crede and Cuddyer. Morneau looks great so far, and when Mauer returns the Twins will have a very nice lineup.

    It sure was nice to see Crede hit a homerun in his first at-bat back in Chicago.
