No need to go all out in the first game of the year and the Nationals have a bad ass bullpen.

You're right, but ESPN was saying this season they weren't gonna treat him like an ace. Thought he had no limitations this year.
The Mets are killing it on Opening Day, but then its the Padres.

Good defensive shorstop, aveage hitter = 120 million now

I think your definition of average hitter is out of whack

I know we're not in the steroid era anymore, but Andrus is not above average as a hitter.

That's taking positional scarcity too far

180 hits, .280+ avg, .350 obp who can steal 30 bases on average and doesn't strike out in triple digits over a course of season. He's above average hitter who is 24 and is improving.

It's a 8 year 120M extension - which kicks in after 2014 season. So, after factoring in his salaries for this year and next (he is clearly under-paid right now) - his new contract comes out to be 10 year 131M. He's worth $13M a year.

Have you ever been? I went a few years ago with some friends and it is unbelievable. Also have been to Milwaukee's stadium. That's a good one as well. Wish I would have checked out AT&T Park when I was in SF. Maybe soon. I've been to Busch Stadium, Kaufmann Stadium, PNC, Miller Park, and Wrigley Field now.

No, but the combination of the quality of play with the generic stadium design should matter.

Im biased though. If you ever get a chance to go to AT&T, do it. Its the most unique and classic baseball experience out there. Sit somewhere in the View Reserve 312-319 range (upper deck behind home), and its the best view in baseball imo.

They're saying its "muscle"

We'll see about that. Both him and Harper apparently bulked up. Harper's looked like muscle today
