Blog Photo - MLB Opening Day Live ThreadIt's finally here, MLB fans, the moment you've been waiting for, the 2013 baseball season! If you're anything like me, you've been following your team throughout Spring Training, and although wins and losses don't tell us much this time of year, we can't help but get hopeful when our team has been winning in the spring or a little nervous when they haven't. 

Tonight we get the season started with a first pitch by Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. Apparently, Watt pitched high school baseball, so getting it over the plate shouldn't be a challenge. Looks like he's been spending some time at the field too.

When: 8:00pm, Eastern Time
Where: Minute Maid Park, aka Astros Field, aka a bunch of other stuff, Houston TX (But you can watch it on ESPN)

Q's very own gearhead did a comprehensive preview for the divisions, including the AL West

The Rangers are a big fat question mark this year, having topped the AL for two straight years before handing the division to Oakland and then getting knocked out of the playoffs by Baltimore last year. To top it off, they lost Josh Hamilton (Angels).

The Astros, however, are projected to be just as awful as they have consistently been for years. Maybe they'll surprise us all.

Have you laid some QBucks down on this game yet? Do so here

Who wins the game tonight? Q it up here for MLB Opening Night on FanIQ!

I'm sure I'm stating the obvious but the Rangers just don't seem as "scary" offensively now that Josh Hamilton is gone

Haha I said that exact same thing to someone on Facebook. Oh well We'll still get to see all their other games on ESPN this season no
