The season is upon us. Official games have been played and scores have been kept. It will be the Houston Astros and New York Yankees turn on Monday to open up the action. It will be a Monday matinee as the game wills start at 12:05 p.m. central time.

The game will be broadcast on both the local broadcast with Root Sports Southwest and ESPN. You will also be able to watch the game online with the Watch ESPN and MLB.TV. Minus a VPN connection, MLB.TV is still blacking out the local broadcast in the Houston area.

The team is still broadcast on 790 AM KBME in English and the team has a new home on 94.1 FM La Nueva for the Spanish broadcast.

We'll have our game thread up somewhere between an hour to 30 minutes before the game starts to start the conversation. Come join us.

The Astros are also hosting viewing parties for Opening Day at Buffalo Wild Wings:
