<b>Baseball is Back! Spring Training Has Now Started!

2/12/2009 - Pitchers and Catchers reported to spring training on Thursday which means that Spring Training has officially begun! The last few years have seen a slew of talented rookies and this year looks like it is going to be another solid group of rookie stars. Some of the talented rookie crop in 2009 includes David Price, Matt Wieters, Elvis Andrus, Andrew McCutchen, Dexter Fowler, Matt LaPorta, Travis Snider, Colby Rasmus, Cameron Maybin and Adam Miller.

2/1/2009 - After Larry Fitzgerald and Kurt Warner hooked up for a late 4th Quarter Touchdown to put the shocking Arizona Cardinals in the lead, Ben Roethlisberger drove the Steelers offense down the field and eventually hitting Santonio Holmes in the back of the end zone with a sensational sideline catch.

1/23/2009 - Superbowl 2009 is just a few days away. This past weekend the smoke had cleared and the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers are the lone teams left standing from this fabulous football season. Kurt Warner looks to relive his Superbowl glory days for the Cardinals. For the Steelers, only a few years removed from a Superbowl championship in 2006, Roethlisberger, Ward and Parker still have a hunger for the title. The Pittsburgh defense has been the story of the season, but the Cardinals have knocked off some big teams and they do not appear to be slowing down at all. This should ba a remarkable game between an unstoppable offensive force and a defense that boasts the top ranking in the league all season long. Something has to give? It will all play out for us, live, on Feb 1st.

Pujols hit .357 with 37 home runs and 116 RBIs while playing with a sore right elbow that required surgery. Pujols won the award despite the Cardinals finishing in fourth place, the lowest spot for an NL MVP winner since Andre Dawson and Chicago Cubs wound up sixth in 1987. Ryan Howard finished a close second place in the voting dispite leading the enitre majors in home runs and RBIs for the World Series champs. In the American League, Boston Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia easily beat out Minnesota Twins slugger Justin Morneau and added to his ever-expanding trophy case. Generously listed at 5-foot-9, the Red Sox star was the top AL rookie last year while winning a World Series ring. Pedroia led the AL in hits, runs and doubles in helping the Red Sox win the AL wild-card berth. He batted .326 with 17 home runs and 83 RBIs and also stole 20 bases. Earlier this month, he also won his first Gold Glove.

10/01/2008 - The 2008 MLB Baseball Season is in for an exciting finish. The Angels, winner of 100 games this season, are taking on the defending World Series Champion Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. The NL's best Chicago Cubs look to win the World Series for the first time in 100 years and start their quest against the NL West Champion Los Angeles Dodgers. The Milwaukee Brewers will square off vs. the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago White Sox will match up against the Tampa Bay Rays. What is going to happen? Are the Rays for real? Can Manny keep the Dodgers hot? Will the Red Sox win for the 3rd time in 4 years? Can Sabathia keep winning big games? Do the Phillies have the best 1-2 punch in baseball with Howard and Utley? Can the Cubbies actually win the whole thing? Is anything short of a championship a disappointment for the Angels? How much do the White Sox have left in the tank? Make your predictions known (I made mine first) over at ThePit.com Discussion Forum - 2008 Playoff Predictions.

ThePit has added a new feature that allows users to drop ship their items they own on ThePit to another address.

This new feature allows users to sell their item(s) on their own site, their NAXCOM VIP Storefront or any other marketplace they sell on. Then when the item sells, users can request that the shipment be sent directly to their buyers (US Only).

The normal S/H fees will still be applied. Users can request items to be dropped shipped when they request shipping on cards in their account. A choice is now given to ship the item to the address on file or for the item to be drop shipped to another location.

If you have any questions about this new feature a new thread has been posted on ThePit Message Board.




Over 300 items have been added to ThePit since NAXCOM acquired ThePit from the Topps Company. TextText
