I'm trying to decide whether I can swing going to the Royals home opener. Of course, since it's the Royals, it's not like I have to rush to get tickets, especially considering they are playing Minnesota.
Hey, I am talking myself out of it just by describing the situation. Ugh....

Yes, the Twins were good last year. Since Royals tickets are so easy to get, and the stadium is in a very convient location, I go to many games, including a Twins-Royals game last year in which the Twins won thanks to a wild pitch by some really tall pitcher who I can't think of the name of right now. McDougal? However, the Twins don't really pique my interest. Neither do the Royals for that matter. And, just because the Twins were good (and lucky) doesn't mean they'll be good again. However, they should get off to a nice 2-0 start before they leave town.
I'm just saysing I have no compelling need to go to Opening Day. I will probably go to at least one game that weekend when the White Sox will be in town, though.

I'm planning on going to the White Sox home opener. Of course the important game is July 28th...Carlton Fisk Bobblehead night. I will throw people out of line or nail them with a chair in order to get that gem.
I think in large part it has to do with the A's confidence in Harden staying healthy. He's having a great season and hasn't spent too much time on the DL. Why take the risk in him injuring himself again (thus lowering his trade value?).
