For you Padres fans not in SoCal, the Giants/Friars game will be part of the MLB Extra Innings Free Opening Week package. And since the Giants announcers are pretty decent (I think it's still Kuiper and Krukow), the game won't be horrible to listen to.
Thank you Cox Cable. And a special shout out to all their employees. :>
Kruk and Kuip are WONDERFUL, and I'm not even a Giants fan.

In the context of baseball, the use of drugs hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, the use of alcohol hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, womanizing hurts whom? Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.
Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.

(Speaking of HDTV, as it turns out, Cox is now offering HD here. It looks like my not buying the HD Convertor for my TV last summer may have finally paid off, since I'll have to get the Digital HD box anyway.)
Was the rest of the game good too though? I didn't see it myself so I don't know. It always bothers me when a game has one good inning or a last second shot or hail mary and is suddenly considered a great game. Like Game 6 of the '86 World Series.
