This year marked the fifth year in a row that I met up with friends and my brother to watch opening day baseball. I actually took the day off today to watch all the 1pm starts along with the Pirates 4pm game. While the final result for the Pirates was lacking it was good day of baseball. You can't take much away from one game but here are a few thoughts.
- Have to wonder how long Tanaka will hold up topping out at 90 mph with his fastball
- King Felix is the man
- Dan Uggla actually started for the Nats....
It is always irritating to play today's game and then have to wait until Wednesday to play again. Let's hope the 10pm games are exciting.
Here is a nice dual auto of McCutchen and Adam Jones. Here's to a Pirates win on Wednesday!
