It's Opening Day! For baseball fans, everything is right with the world today: The air is full of anticipation and everybody is undefeated. Anything is possible on Opening Day.
(And yes, I'm aware the season technically opened last night on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. I choose to ignore that unless my team is involved).
A few games have already been cancelled due to weather (Snow in Chicago? Yikes!) but that's OK. Those teams get to have Opening Day tomorrow. It's like two Christmas mornings in a row!
Good luck this year to the two teams most important to this blog, the Padres and Red Sox. And to all our readers' teams (except when they're coming up against our teams, natch). May the spirit of Opening Day keep you and sustain you through the grueling 162 game schedule. It's a marathon, not a sprint, etc. etc.
