There are a couple of new posts on the 2015 thread so I figured it was time to kick off 2016.

This thread is for discussing day to day Bucco talk; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

We make predictions before the season starts, we discuss players perfomance, and we root for our Buccos.

I am looking forward to another great year of Bucco talk here on HPA!

Mods feel free to delete or close the 2015 thread.

Now if Melancon doesn't blow it we're off to a good start

Yeah, Melancon will make you nuts some days. He'll come around though. Nice to see a win against the Card's ace.
Yep. I think they learned the price of dropping all those April games last year. Win 3 games early, and the Cards would have been facing Arietta in a one game playoff.

Yeah, this. Melancon doesn't do it the easy way.

Really nice start aside from Melancon.

Based on these comments, you would have thought the Bucs desperately needed to make an effort to get MLB's best closer of 2015. Oh wait, he already wears black and gold...

It's a long season and every player will run into a few bumps along the way. It's also well known that virtually all closers tend to struggle a bit when they come in to throw in a non-save situation. The important part is that he gets the job done, and Melancon is one of the best in making that happen.

I'll be pretty bummed if tonight's game is not on MLB network, since Root is broadcasting some type of figure skating competition tonight.

Only 160 to go
Side note Neal Walker's first hit 2 run Homer
Mets win 2-0

I didn't see any of the game, and heard very little but sounds like some sloppy play and battling bull pens made for a good game.

I hate that we traded Walker.

People must have forgotten that Melancon had a bad start last year. His velocity was way down and critics were up and arms about it. I think maybe he turned out alright.
