It’s here, folks. Opening Day. Well, opening day to the extent that most American baseball fans will think of it. For purposes of enjoying this day, we’re going to ignore the two games played by Oakland and Seattle in Japan last week — games that we later found out many fans did not know were being played.

I’ve heard some people even treat this day like a national holiday, taking a vacation day from the job to sit in front of ESPN and other outlets showing games. I work from home and if I don’t get stuff done I don’t get paid, so I’ll still be working, but the television will be on in the background.

    We’ve known each other for 25 years or more and this might be the most we’ve ever agreed on anything hahaha

    Toronto can’t play defense and Boston isn’t healthy the Rays staff is too damn good to not win. I like St. Louis a lot, but until I know Carpenter is healthy AND Oswalt is signed no dice. The Braves starters will go deeper this year making that pen more dominating.

    I look forward to what happens in fla when they don’t make it. What is the plan B in Miami?

    The Phils could very well recover to be a WS contender. Right now, however, there is much panic among the Phandom here. The offense has been worse than we thought, the starting pitchers go out every game thinking that they can;t give up a run. It’s still early but in Philly it’s getting late already….(to paraphrase Yogi Berra).
