…but it’s still Opening Day. And that means our long, dark winter of worrying about non-roster invites to backup infielders and lack of action on the free agent front is over. (Sadly, worrying about the divorce case has barely just begun). So while I don’t agree with the Opening Day starter, the batting order, or the 25th man on the roster, I think we can all agree: it’s worth getting out of bed in the morning again.
Fortunately for everyone involved, it’s in the mid-70s today in Pittsburgh, because all winter long I was wondering why in the hell MLB would schedule an early-April game in a cold weather city, while having the team from Los Angeles open on the road.
