Peanuts! Crackerjacks! Watch out for that ball!!! Finally the one sport where you can watch your favorite team more than 160 times in a year and never get bored... unless you cheer for the Chicago Cubs. The baseball season starts today, so let's see what's happening around the MLB!

Top 5 Teams to Keep your Eye on

  1. Toronto Blue Jays: It's been a long time coming since they won back-to-back World Series in 1992 and 1993, but the Toronto Blue Jays finally have a contending team again.
  2. LA DodgersAdrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Zack Greinke are on the team giving the Dodgers the highest payroll in MLB history. 
  3. Detroit Tigers: MVP Miguel Cabrera and his triple crown is just fun to watch by himself
  4. LA AngelsAlbert Pujols is everyone's favorite player to watch... right?
  5. Washington Nationals: If you like a good fast ball, the Nationals have the best pitching staff in the biz.

End of an Era

Old RivalryRed Sox vs YankeesCourtesy of mlb

The Yankees, Red Sox, and Phillies are longshots to win this year. What happened? Well, they got old. Derek Jeter is turning 39 years old so you shouldn't expect the Bronx Bombers in the post-season anymore. That means no more rivalries between the Yanks, Sox, and Phillies. It's kinda sad because no one hates each other more than the fans of these teams. Who will be the next greatest rivalries?

So who is your team to beat this year? Who will win the home run derby? Let us know in the comment below...

I'm in marching band, and I don't consider it a sport.Yes, I'll admit that marching band can be physically demanding, but it isn't a sport. Marching band is nothing like soccer, lacrosse, rugby, tennis, boxing, etc. Comparing marching band to a sport like rubgy, hockey, cross country, or whatever is just... kind of ridiculous.You can argue that it does require some physical-ness, which it does. But it's just walking in tempo. It does involve some endurance to stand out in the sun and play an instrument for a while, but doing so isn't really that hard.
